Rated 5 out of 5Â by Guspig Makes my home very warm and cozy.
I am on my third winter of using this stove. I have propane heat and this stove saves me a fortune. The longer you use it the more you figure it out. The first year I pretty much used the automatic settings. I am now at the point where I am adjusting the draft fan and room fan manually and I think I have it operating at peak efficiency. I'm heating a 1,400 square foot home. I can leave it on the P1 heat setting and heat the house to 76 degrees when it's 20 degrees outside. Obviously it depends on how insulated your house is. Pellet stoves work best in homes that have more of an open floor plan. The only complaint I have is that when the stove is new the paint stinks a little bit when it gets hot. This only happens for the first 3 weeks until the paint gets baked in. Draft fan settings can vary depending on the type of pellets.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by charger212 Don't buy this stove if you want no trouble
We have had this model for three seasons now and it has been nothing but trouble. I am an experienced mechanic and I am very good with all thing mechanical, this stove is troublesome. We had to replace the board and a wiring harness 1st year and an ignitor the second year and right off the bat this year (3rd) the ignitor took a dump. I service this stove frequently to include a once a year total cleaning and lubrication of all moving parts. I don't mind keeping things clean and lubricated but this is crazy! If you are mechanically challenged don't buy this stove. Oh yes I forgot the front glass seal is shot too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jake44 Good stove
This stove has been working well and was easy to install. It quit once, but I believe that is normal, and believe I had too much air coming in (like any stove it has an adjustable air intake). Beware to anyone who is thinking of buying a pellet stove and not having any work to do, or that it will be like turning on a gas furnace. It is easy, but takes figuring out a bit, tweaking to get what you want out of it.
ALSO, it does not heat like my 2 wood stoves. I figured it could keep the area I was putting it in warm and it can't keep up with the cold (keeps it in the lower 60's at least). I have the advantage of having had a stove in the very place before, a Yodel Castine, which easily heated this side of our home. But I knew, and anyone purchasing should, that there are too many factors involved to really know how well it will work in your home until you get it-- it's the risk you take. It is running well and putting out good heat, just not enough to be sufficient with all my windows. I guess it does loose a star in my rating because of this-- it doesn't seem to heat as big of an area as advertised. I have a 2500 sf home that is very old, restored, little insulation, but I also have a Yodel Oslo (big) heating the major part of the house, and hoped that this pellet stove would take care of the rest... not so. Not quite the amount of heat I had hoped for. But a good stove regardless for the price.

I purchased this stove during the summer and installed it myself and I am very pleased with its performance. It keeps my 1800 square foot cape at 68-70 degrees all the time. I clean it once a week, add pellets daily and it works great.
