"Holds fire very, very long time. Takes long and good sized logs. Easy to install, easy to control heat, easy to start a fire. Only draw back, blackened window. Good size for room and heats large area easily. Blower not working right, but haven't looked into why yet. A great wood stove and would buy it again."
"This stove is fantastic. The only thing I wish I could change would be for it to be fabricated in the US, for the same cost. I shopped for F/P's and stoves for months, and this was the best bargain. We have a 2700 sq. ft. 1 1/2 story house with central open area where F/P is. Winter electrical bills went from $350-$400 per month to $100-$125 per month. House was all electric, plus I shopped for cheaper electric provider. I definitely would not recommend purchasing a smaller stove. This one still seems somewhat small, compared to a conventional F/P, but it does the job. Found out that all F/P's are less efficient than wood stoves, unless you have the money to purchase one of the expensive monsters. Last winter we never used central heat, just set the thermostat at 68 in case of emergencies. Stove does burn all night, but that's counting it being reduced to coals by morning. It's common to have small coals still going from the previous night when you start it for the evening. Small box makes cleaning it at least every other night imperative, but that is easy if you set up a shovel and metal bucket handily. We didn't previously have any F/P installed so I can't compare, but I definitely wouldn't go with a smaller one. You can always make the fire smaller. Traditional F/P's have the reputation of looking better, but you'll forget about that quickly after saving hundreds of dollars each month. Just get past the idea of having to have a conventional F/P. Plus, this one looks very nice and has a beautiful view of the fire. Just follow the installation rules for the flue and don't cut any corners. Find out for sure if you have to have the insulated pipe. It costs more up front but you sleep better at night if you're confident in the system. Build a good fire around 9:00 pm and it keeps the house comfortable all night. Heat BTU's go lower by morning but you don't want a blazing fire going during the day anyway if you're at work. If at home for the day, just stick some more wood in. If I seem excited about this it's because I'm ecstatic about not throwing so much money away! I do use only seasoned oak, as I have a very cheap source for it and cut it myself. It's really not much work for the money you save! And chainsaw costs are very small once you're set up. Poulan works fine with a good quality chain. Good luck, let me know if I can give you pointers."
"I have been using this product for 1 month now and this is my thoughts, the unit doesn't seem burn at 152,000 btu's, doesn't matter what type of wood I use, but it seems well made and provides a lot of heat once there is a really good hot bed of coals. The estimated burn time must be for the coals to completely burn out as it sees to need fresh fuel about every 2 hours for maximum heat. The fit and finish is good and the stove looks great.
I would recommend it to someone who is in the market for a nice wood stove."
