Dislikes: poor design in handles #1 damper handle is METAL when pushed in its very close to the stove making the handle too hot to pull out so i had to use a champagne cork to make it functional. #2 the actual handle to open door is made out of WOOD after using it for 6 months (i just moved in) i was awakened by my smoke alarm to find the handle was on fire. if i would have left the house it would have turned into a house fire. poor poor faulty and hazardest design.

Comments: i would never rec this wood stove and i have looked at all their models which all look like it has the same metal and wooden handles unless you plan on babysitting the stove all hours of operation
