Likes: Plug it in and it works. Easy to install, get fuel prepaid at local Agway store for $3.00 a bag. It runs 24 hours from mid Nov. to Feb. Bought big firestarter sticks and cut them to small pieces. Just start that piece and turn it on. Ten minutes and the room is warm.

Dislikes: List price of these are $1,400 last time I checked. Ouch.

Comments: Use to have a coal stove for many years. Tired of the dust and restarting problems. That stove would only last 8 hours and have to work at getting it going again. Warm and rainy days the coal stove was a pain. Press a button or two and get more or less heat. Stays on for 14-16 hours. Had it for 4 years now, no problems. It's been on constant from mid Nov. to March each year.
