Likes: Nice looking stove. Burns clean, glass stays clear.

Dislikes: Doesn't give off good heat.

Comments: I found (my own opinion) that the 1400 did not throw good heat. The stove did a great job burning the wood, but I don't know where the heat went. I contacted the dealer of the stove they came out and said the chimney was the issue. I have a 20' brick chimney that runs through the middle of my house. I then had the clay liner removed, and a stainless steel liner installed (6inch) at the cost of $2000, and no change. I had the company come out again to do a draft check. The tech came out with the wrong gear checked my wood that had 5% moisture content and said it should be 1 or 2%. And the chimney should work fine. I gave up sold the stove and got a new one (drolet). Solved my problem
