Likes: Stove looks nice, i guess, not many pros to mention. the door/glass gets hot but no other external parts get over 180ish so less surface area for kids to get burned on but the door is hot so still not kid friendly.(no wood stove is).

Dislikes: Stove is not suitable as reliable heat source. Fans are extremely loud and move very minimal air. very inefficient.

Comments: Stove was already installed in a house we purchased. Stove requires reloading every 2 hours to sustain any heat, we only load 2 pieces at a time (1 small, 1med/large), this heats the stove to its "max output". adding more wood than that gives no increase in heat output or duration of fire, so its just wasting wood. turning down the air just blackens the door, does not extend the burn. if you have the stove look for a new one, if your looking at buying one, dont.
