Likes: The Quadra-Fire is an excellent stove. The glass stays very clean and the stove is so efficient that you do not smell wood burning unless you open the door to fill it. The stove does not smoke at all except when starting a fire. The stove burns the wood so efficiently that all is left is a fine, white, powdery ash. The dampers are very easy to adjust and you do not roast yourself out of the house!

Dislikes: Don't have any.

Comments: Before we could install a woodstove, we had to put in a stainless steel flexible chimney liner through a 2-story house (10 foot ceilings) plus the attic and rebuild the chimney, etc. This was very costly (approx. $3000 for this work alone). Then we had the expense of the woodburner. But, I must tell you that both my husband and I feel that it was worth the expense. We are getting so much enjoyment out of this stove and it heats our house so well, that I would recommend this stove to anyone.
