Likes: Great stove! Have always checked and has burned clean enough that it doesn't need cleaning.(very efficient, short run chimney though.

Dislikes: This dealer is a nightmare. No service and installers he sent were butchers(cut a rafter and left it because they didn't clear it)! NEVER kept a scheduled appointment after they sold the unit. First time sales scum. The stove is simply too small to give us an overnight burn.We should have bought the biggest one. Will finally replace this year.
