Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BB We have had the unit in service for a few days now and it looks nice and seems to heat our small 1400 sq. ft. house quite well with the cool Autumn temperatures we've had lately. We purchased the side heat shields from the manufacturer and installed them on the unit to gain closer clearances to combustibles. When the door is closed it leans a little to the handle side and is noticeable when seated in front of the stove. Overall we are happy with it so far and it seems to be a quality product at a very reasonable price. We also chose this stove for the flat top which makes it convenient for heating up a pot of soup or stew, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GP Great Value. Made in USA.
Some american companies are importing cheap stoves from china. Englander does not, from what I can find out. Others seem to be really nice stoves, but the price can be in the thousands. I'm happy with this purchase and have no problem recommending it.

This wood stove is small for the amount of heat it puts out. It is very attractive and the blower is relatively quiet. I would definitely recommend this wood stove.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BuyerBWare Consider this before you purchase this stove
The overall quality of the stove is good, but I soon discovered a fundamental problem.
Some of the firebricks were broken, which normally would not be a problem because they are readily available at any hardware store. However the firebricks that come with this stove are only 4" wide. Standard width is 4.5."
I called every local source I could think of and even searched online, but everyone sells 4.5" firebricks.
I contacted Englander Stoves (Englandservice@englanderstoves.com) and their response was: "This is the way we have gotten bricks for over 30 years I’ve never seen wider bricks in our stoves."
This means I will have to trim 1/2 inch off every replacement brick going forward, or pay to have them trimmed, or redesign the layout for standard size bricks. Keep in mind you will need the correct saw and blade to cut bricks yourself.
This is no small problem problem and the manufacturer is not forthcoming with a solution.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo This is a replacement for a 40 yr old wood burning stove that went through wood as fast as a forest fire.
There isn't a whole lot of install but what I did have went easy.

Easy to use, but it takes quite amount of time before heating up. Once up to temperature, fire burns clean and is easy to maintain heat. Love the 2 speed blower, and found the low speed is more than sufficient moving hot air.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aurora great stove, unjust negatives.
Let me start by saying this is my first wood stove, with that said It was trial and error, based on others positive reviews I bought this over some of the others. my house is roughly 1300 sg ft so the stove is a little over rated but better then under. I used double wall telescopic for the stove to ceiling and triple wall straight up through the roof.
it took me about 3 burns to get the hang of getting it started and maintaining a good fire, the biggest issue is getting a good updraft so hear is what I found, I have a good air tight home as all the windows in the dining and living room are new, some have complained about not being able to get her going, the trick is open the damper half to full, use a descent amount of news paper and dry kindling as a base, light it and just ever so lightly leave the door cracked open enough for a good updraft, once it starts burning enough add regular seasoned wood until you have a good burn, I use oak ot maple as its abundant in my area, when the stove pipe reaches a good temp you will get a better updraft then you can control the burn with the damper after shutting the door, the stove will put out a good deal of heat but I am not sure how long the stove will retain it as I haven't really pushed it to much its still in the low 40,s here at night. but it does heat up fairly quickly.
the blower works well but is a little loud as some stated and I'm wondering if a small fan would be better in back of the stove. I had talked to customer service about updraft issues and they recommend cracking open a window or an outside air pipe attached to the lower intake port on the back of the stove if you cant get it to light up or keep a good burn, this would be a worst case scenario I think. hope this little bit of info helps because for the price its a very nice stove. also duravent and englander have great customer service!
