Likes: Touch Screen control. Scheduler just like a programmable thermostat. Remote room temp is accurate and easy to set up. Cleaning prompt (Scrape Burn Pot, Empty Ash Pan, Total Clean) reminders are very helpful. Stove is beautiful and a centerpiece in my home.

Dislikes: Not many Cons that I can think of... The Majolica Brown Enamel will chip very easy.

Comments: I installed the stove in March of 2017 and have run roughly a ton through it (maybe a bit more). The pellet stove is very well built. The touch screen control is user intuitive, easy to set a schedule and the cleaning prompts are accurate. Puts out a tremendous amount of heat... the heat pump downstairs is off, we rely solely on the Absolute 63. The upstairs heat pump will come on in the morning just to take the chill off... other than that the whole house is heated by the pellets. It is very easy to clean, takes me about 10 minutes to do a full clean out.
