    Hi all,

    I've been thinking of putting an insert in the fireplace which we really don't use that much (at all actually) since our dog becomes scared of any cracking noise :/
    Anyway, I was looking around and found a used Breckwell P22 insert.. and I was wondering if anyone had any type of experience with this brand.

    Anyone has any feedback on this brand?

    I have a older big e model. I find it rock solid and have had 0 issues since I got it used 2 years ago. Auger motor went on previous owner and I replaced burn pot when I got it.. I find it's basically set it and forget it other than cleaning...
    I sorta chuckle when u watch the forums it's all the ones with all kinds of settings and electronics that people have troubles with

    I should rephrase that,I don't have a problem with some breckwells,but I would stay away from an older p22 insert.I also would stay away from a SPC50.
