Hey guys!

I am the proud new owner of a pellet stove!(Absolute43) I like it so much I’m considering getting another for in my den. Maybe a P43.

I really like the look of the Quadrafire Santa Fe. I think it is so cute! And I love the look of the burn pot. However there aren’t that many reviews or videos on them, and the reviews that there is are mostly negative, so I would like to hear from anyone that is a proud Quad owner.
Are they easy to clean and maintain?
Any big problems other than the sound of pellets falling into the pot?
Any regrets?

Thank you and have a blessed life.

I have a 22 year old Quadrafire contour. I have had it for roughly 5 or 6 years now. I love it, not a super high heat output, but is pretty efficient. The burn pot only needs cleaned maybe every 3 days running full blast, and it's super easy. Just let it cool down, pull the lever and the ash fals into the ash pan below!

I live in Michigan. I've had a Santafe and its brother the castile since 2009. The castile is used every day during winter from 4 to 8 hours. The Santa fe is in the basement and not used very often. The inner workings are the same for both stoves. I have had Zero problems.
