Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BUXNDUX Great stove at a greater price
I researched wood stoves for quite awhile going to several local stove shops, searching the internet and even craigslist. I found this one on the Home depot website and another home improvement store. The other stores price was lower but home depot matched it and I didn't have to drive farther to the other store. I couldn't find any other comparable USA made stove for under a thousand dollars. I installed it myself with no problems. It seems very well built and weighs over 300 lbs. It has been keeping my 1500 sf house above 70 deg with no problem, it even got up to 80 several times and I had to open up the windows to cool it back down. I stoke it at night then damp it down before bed and when I get up there are still coals to help start it up the next day. My only complaints are the damper is a little sticky and the fan is noisy. The fan isn't really necessary though since the radiant heat seems to warm up the whole house just fine. I added a heat thermometer to make sure I am in the burn zone to reduce creosote and to make sure I don't over-fire it. Also a teapot on top with water to keep moisture levels in the house up. No more high propane bills using the furnace so it should pay for itself in 1 or 2 winters since I can cut my firewood for free. I plan on purchasing an electric splitter at Home Depot later to make that task easier. All in all I am very happy with my purchase, thank you Home Depot!

We have a small house, but opted for the Medium stove because it had a blower. After unpacking the stove, we discovered the board in the top was broken. I emailed and then called the company about a replacement board. Very nice person knew exactly what piece I needed and shipped it right out. Also explained how to replace it. Wasn't an easy task, but with a little patience, got it replaced. [Just so you know, ventilate for the first 2 burnings (like the instructions say). The curing of the paint is unpleasant, but goes away.] This stove heats the whole house comfortably. We turn the ceiling fans on low to help pull and circulate the heat from the ceilings. On really cold nights, we'll use the blower. Doesn't seem like it would do much because it is so small, but the blower really pushes the heat out. We LOVE this wood stove!

I live in the city and this is my third winter using the wood burning stove Model # LWS-127201 and it has already paid for itself. My home heating oil company had to send refunds in excess of $4,000 for two years in a row. I'm on the same budget this year but expect to get a larger refund from the oil company now that I am comfortable letting it burn all night without supervision and really know how to use the stove. After two years of refunding money you would think they would lower my budget amount. But they don't know about the wood burning stove. ; -) My only regret, "NOT BUYING A LARGER WOOD BURNING STOVE!"

This stove drafts VERY well ... after my inital install I had to take it apart & put in a Flue Damper because She's a heavy breather ... I even partly blocked the bottom primary 1/2 " air hole with steel wool (just to be able to have more control 4 over nite burns) when fully loaded w/o damper & hole blockage easily got 700 + stove top Temps.Now will cruise 600 ish Great secondary Burn & nice wide firebox.It's a really nice stove well worth having, though a damper is recommended !!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redbeard1 good looking and easy to use
my vermont casting stove finally broke after 18yrs of great service. i shopped around
and settled on the P.H. it heats up fine, the fan is a great asset, the door handle sqeaks all the time even after oiling it. overall am very pleased. the small spring for the
damper control is to tight to fit over the damper rod would like a new one.
