Likes: None

Dislikes: The catalyst housing warped and welds gave way. The door seal is poor even after new gasket and adjustments.

Comments: Blaze King claims you can maintain a hot fire in the box for extended periods of time. The stove was used in Alaska and burned very frequently for 6-7 months at a stretch. The stove is easy to overfire. The Blaze King is of poor quality for extensive use. I do not recommend the Blaze King for extremely cold climates. It is a stove for intermintent use.
