Likes: Only 14 months in operation so far, so ... love the function, the heat, and the mechanically timed startup feature. The close clearances help a lot. The step top looks great. Front-to-back loading is a big win too. Glass burns clean constantly. Outside air thru the base makes for a clean look.

Dislikes: The underneath ash tray is not something we use.

Comments: We placed this unit in a stone-lined corner and used a ped. base instead of legs, so that we could conceal the outside-air-kit under the stove. Great! Our outside air intake is very long (30') which was a concern, but our chimney is long too (34'). We tried to do a good job with the outside air line just in case. Its first 20' is 6" dia. before necking down to 4". Only one 90 turn. Almost no flex pipe. Works wonderfully. Placed stove on a stained concrete pedestal for looks and to make it easy to load.
