Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed First fire cracked stove
I purchased this stove to heat my shop. I started the first fire in there with a firestarter and kindling as I always do. I added a couple pieces of seasoned wood, shut door and walked outside. Within 5 minutes I heard a BOOM!! Went back inside to find my brand new stove had cracked all the way around on one side and about a 3" crack in the bottom. Defect?? Don't know but I was afraid to try another one. Returned it and got my money back

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrFab Definitely NOT made in America
I made the erroneous assumption that because it came from a company that goes by the name of United States Stove Company, it MUST be made in America. Boy was I wrong. When I received the crate it came in, I noticed that "Made in China" was stamped all over it. When I uncrated the stove several of the parts were also stamped with "Made in China". I try to purchase only things made in America and I thought I was doing so when I bought this.
I haven't installed it yet as I am still considering returning it and looking for another stove that actually IS made in the good ol' USA.

This stove was large, affordable and seemed like a good choice for my barn. Like most cast iron stoves it tends to have average to below average seam tightness. After a month of use the black sealant caulk around the rear vertical seams turned to ash and dropped off!? Wow...never saw that happen before.
The two part "safety" handle does not work well. The part it attaches to is too short and does not make a good connection. It is difficult to lock the door in place and rapidly becomes an annoyance. I would not recommend this stove.

Purchased this stove to heat my home and wanted the features of an original cast iron stove. Expect to lose power often throughout the winter months, an this stove will allow us heat and ability to cook food and boil water as needed. The stove came put together minus the legs and top damper (easy to bolt on). Be sure to pre-cook it outside before installation to remove the furnace cement and paint fumes (one fire will do). NOTE: The cost of the stove pipe/chimney piping far exceeds the stove, so be aware to save up (Home Depot has best prices for those too).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by K9Ken Logwood 1,600 sq. ft. Wood-Burning Stove
Stove came almost assembled except for legs, door and front apron. It went together easily but once I got it fired up, it was not air tight and had to reseal all the seams. The door needed a little work to get it to shut tight. Overall, it was a good deal and works very well.

I have used this stove 2 winters and it has performed satisfactory. I have burned wood many years and it gets cold in middle Tennessee. Here are the pros.1) It's affordable, I needed an economical stove (299.00) closeout paid for mine.2) Fires start easy.3) Large firebox, can get wood 25 inches long into stove.4) Gets hot quick and radiates a lot of heat. The cons: 1) Stove is not airtight.2) It is a wood-eater --- burned more wood in last 2 yrs. to last 4 yrs. with a better stove.3) If you do not use a damper in the stove pipe, you can't control it like need be.4) Made in China, quality isn't there. Flue collar on stove now has small crack. 5) Comes with no firebrick. Final thought: This stove heated my 880 sq. ft. home last 2 winters well but you have to load it 3-4 hrs.It got us by in a pinch. I am going to Home Depot soon and buy an Englander stove as this will meet or exceed my needs. Never had a negative or bad experience at Home Depot.

I personally use my logwood stove in my garage every day of any given winter. It performes as it was designed to. I have owned my stove for about since 1998 or so. I simply load it down with a good hardwood and it will still have good hot ashes in the next morning . Then all I do is put in another log and back to my warm garage it is. I do not use my garage for any man cave or anything like that but simply to make everyday repairs as they come around and I will always have a nice warm garage to work in. OH else I need to say is my garage is not insulated or anything like that. Just think if it was I could stay up all night and not get cold. This stove is rated Tops in my opinion. I do not have anyone telling me what to say just simply me stating this unit is very worthy. Thank you makers of the logwood. You have a very good winner in my books. Dan P In missouri.
