I have owned this stove for twelve months. I have only one issue and that is parts . The steel perforated baffled warped within 6 month or less the mesh is none existent . I explained this to Burley and was told I must have over fired the stove . I burn logs of varied kinds and pine to light it. I have burned maybe 100 times since owning it. I was told I have to buy a new part for it . Once I removed the baffle it seems very flimsy and not fit for purpose. I had an engineer look at it and he laughed at the quality of this and said a match would warp this if left on long enough .
