This stove has been a great addition to our home. We have a 1900 era farm house. The home is very cold and leaky in the winter. We have very high winds and a lot of snow. We had the stove installed and it has been wonderful! Our home is 1900 sq ft, and it heats both the down stairs and the upstairs without a problem. We can even open a window at night for some fresh air. We have not yet used the blower, because we have not yet felt the need to use it. The window on the front did turn yellow, which is a small draw back for the wonderful heating power. The overall look of the stove is still good, and we are very pleased.

Shopping for stoves is like buying tires. After much researching and evaluating products, we opted for this stove. Ordering online and shipping was a snap. Delivered intact and packaged well. Very simple to install. You can go to US Stoves online and review the manual before purchasing. Unlike most other stoves, this one requires a 24" clearance in the front. That's 8" more then most stoves I've found. No side shields but only needs 10.5" clearance. Comes with a blower and ash drawer that normally costs extra. Cleaning is easy! We don't use the blower because the stove puts out plenty of heat fast. The blower is quiet except on the highest setting. The manual says 4 to 5 medium burns to burn off the oils from manufacturing but it took over eight burns. Not a deal breaker. The glass is staying clear and can easily be cleaned with steel wool. Very pleased!
I did have one issue with the fresh intake kit. You need to buy the kit directly from US Stoves. Homedepot can get it, but its a special order. The kit comes with two 2" x 18" hoses, hose clamps, and hardware to mount it through the wall. One 18" hose is not long enough to make it to an outside wall from the connection on the back of the stove. It is okay to attach the two hoses together. US Stoves did offer acceptable customer support. They tried to help me with my issue and instead of just sending a longer hose they sent the duplicate kit with another two 2" x 18" hoses. :/ I gave up trying to explain it to them and gave them an A for effort.

We purchased this stove to replace our older cast iron stove and we couldn't be happier about it! Our home is a 2 story colonial and the stove is located in the basement - it heats our entire home beautifully! We use this stove as our main source of heat which saves so much money! The blower makes a huge difference, and the price is great. Love this stove, very very happy with our purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by WoodBurnerGuy GREAT Wood Burning Stove
I have heated our home(s) with a Fisher momma bear stove for almost 35 years, same stove. I cannot believe that it took me this long, this many cords of wood and so much smoke creation year after year to get a stove that was so much more efficient and a pleasure/easy to use. My wood consumption is likely half of what it used to be, or less. It is a pleasure to actually SEE the fire and the radiated heat is much more efficient than a closed burner. I realize the technology has changed significantly over the years, but didn't realize HOW much. Shipping costs were VERY reasonable, timely delivery and the stove was easy to install. Once you get it warmed up it is very easy to use. It does not smoke in the house when you recharge it and it is easy to clean. I never had an ash dump pan in a wood burner, what a pleasure. My wife and kids love this stove. I get consistent comments on how well it heats and how much you can feel the heat out of the front of the stove.
I would make this type of investment again now realizing the benefits.
Well done Home Depot and well done Country Hearth.
