Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by warmncozy Good stove for the $
I've had this stove for two seasons; going on my third. It keeps the house at a steady 75 - 80 degrees depending on closing the flue and air intake. With the flue and air intake closed at night, three med logs will last the entire night and in the morning, it's still in the 70's in the living room. Reason I'm writing this now is that am looking this product up for a friend who also wants to purchase it.
You will not be disappointed. The only reason I give this a 4 star for quality is that the top hinge pin on the door keeps trying to pop out (I guess due to expansion and opening and closing the door). You'll have to keep an eye on it and will have to tap it back down every once in a while.

Bought this stove last fall for my 600 ft2 A-frame cabin. It will burn you out of the place even when near zero. Very good build quality for the money. Fire box seems insanely small at first blush but, proves otherwise after use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by redbonesrock Good stove for the money.....but.
Got this stove as partial payment for a tile job and have been using for several years. As another review mentioned the stress plate will warp if it gets too hot, and to my knowledge is not replaceable so be careful. That said, the stove provides plenty of heat for a small home, or as a supplemental heat source in a larger home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1220Woody Great small stove for the price!
I bought mine 4 years ago and have use very little propane to heat the home! Started with 30% fuel in the beginning of the heating season at the end I still had 15% left. My home is small 1100 sq ft. but this little stove did the job. Make sure you don't over heat the fire box warp the upper plate. It was my fault, I left the door open and walked away. My bad.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by unsure1 I grew up in a home with a wood stove and was excited to finally get one of my own. I installed this stove in our basement hoping it would be sufficient enough to heat our upstairs some. Now I've only had this installed and used it for a week now. The first time I used it was no problem, smoked a little but not bad. The other times including this morning it has been so hard to keep it going. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, I mean growing up I started many fires in the stove with no problems. This stove is not very big, but its well built and the glass door is a nice touch. Delivery was quicker than I was told, which was nice. Overall I like what I got. I would suggest this to my friends for a small space.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by warminvermont just what we needed
This is a decent stove for the price. The pluses: it gives off plenty of heat, even without the blower, looks nice, basic but delivers what it promises. The minuses: it's a bit messy in terms of ash removal, but that's the nature of wood stoves.
At first I had trouble getting it going, but realized it was partly my technique, partly the wood I was using. I bought better wood, and the difference is amazing. So, be sure you have good, dry wood and that the chimney pipe is set up properly to get a good draft. I got this stove on sale, so am particularly happy, but I think you can't go wrong with this model if you want a mid-range stove and don't need the fancy extras. I ddin't install the blower, instead use a heat-activated fan that sits on top, and it's pelnty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonnyappleseed Impressive performance
This stove puts out lots of heat for its size. I bought it as sort of emergency heat as my gas boiler won't ignite if the power is out. The manual could be better written. It never addresses how to use or adjust the damper-or even that it exists. Also that hot as heck bit that sticks out the back an inch. Finally, I find it sad that a unit made by US STOVE is made in China. I wish there was a way to offer the identical model-made in Tennessee. I'd love to know how much more it would really sell for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by steven its warm!
Works great. Solid Construction. We use 16 inch logs. They fit great. The areas we are heating Is only about 900 square feet. With the blower on medium We can only heat it to about 62 degrees. But that's good enough for ups.
