Likes: Keeps my house warm. No mechanical problems thus far. Much nicer than the electric baseboard heat that is in my house.

Dislikes: Pellets expensive and messy. Stove requires constant cleaning. Glass is impossible to keep clean.

Comments: If I had to do it over again, I would have gone with a propane/kerosene unit (such as Monitor brand) instead of pellets. Pellets are very expensive as compared to more common fuels such as oil, gas, propane, etc.
