I will review again after the burning season is done here in Nebraska. My first impressions are extremely favorable! This is our second wood stove and beats the hell out of the Hearthstone stove we had before! Control of burn is excellent, heat output is excellent, longevity of burn is excellent. As stated before I will review again after I have used it for the burning season, but my impressions now are BUY THIS and you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for an efficiant wood heat source for your home, this is a good unit by my limited experience with it.
