Well built stove, large firebox holds a lot of wood for a long burn. Blower does a good job of moving the heat around.

Really love this wood stove, we've been using it daily for a few weeks now and it does a great job of heating up our 2300 sq' house. As another review noted the blower does not move that much heat away from the stove, but it does work well enough. The glass front is huge so you can see the whole fire, really looks beautiful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by k Smith Good stove, great with a few tweaks.
Got , the stove in and installed about a month and a half ago. So far I haven't been able to burn well seasoned wood due to not having room to seasoned until recently. Stove puts off a lot of heat and looks nice. However the air inlet needs to be a little bigger and there needs to be blower to circulate the air inside to feed the fire better. Parents have an early 90's Ashley insert with that feature and it warms their 2 story 4000+ square foot house.
Also a way to empty the ashes while the stove is in use would be nice.
With these three small tweaks it would be perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skiptrader This is the real deal
I have owned many wood stoves in my life and I can tell you, I know stoves. This stove is the most amazing stove I have ever owned. I burn the wood on my property and half of the wood I burn is what I call trash wood. I never cut a live tree, just my way. This stove will not only burn this less than desirable wood but make it last like it is oak. I don't ever leave feedback because I just don't have the time. I am writing this review because I am impressed. Just buy it as you will not be sorry. Best deal around.

I have this stove for a couple of weeks and absolutley love it. I love that I can see the fire burn through the glass and I love how easy it is to start up another fire in the morning, after burning all night. I bought this one to replace one that I have had for many years and this by far has surpassed my expectations and so glad that I purchased this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PA Guy Love the large wood stove!!!
Had this stove for about 2 weeks now. It's really been helping offsetting our propane costs. We love that we can fill the large wood box at night and easily get it up and running again in the morning. The blower works ok; doesn't real move too much of the heat around. Puts off good heat and I would definitely recommend this product, especially for the price!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HighMeadowHiker Must relearn how to get draw going
My old stove was not EPA-compliant, and there was a County incentive for having it hauled away and destroyed. This EPA-certified model was available for a good price, and had decent user ratings. My old stove had a cast iron perforated plate in the center of the bottom that made for a strong draft through the ash bed. Under that plate was the ash drawer. This new stove has no way to provide draft from the bottom. I was surprised to see that the chamber filled with white smoke when I started up the kindling. The directions call for leaving the door cracked until the chamber heats up enough to create a draft. I found that this requires much longer to get a fire going. In other words, you have to remain at the stove for a much longer time than for stoves that draft from the bottom. Once the chamber gets hot enough the draft is OK. With my old stove, when I opened the draft control to maximum and cracked the ash drawer open, the very strong draft was enough to reduce all coals to fine ash. With this EPA-certified stove, there are big chunks of charcoal remaining when the fire finally burns out.
I like the blower, as I think that it increases the efficiency by distributing the warm air.
I plan to learn if EPA requires that stoves not have a bottom source of draft.
