This stove is great.Everything about it exceeded my expectations .It heats our living room and about 2/3 of the downstairs of our 500 square foot house plus the bedrooms,without needing the central heating on(now the Insulation in the house is done)We only use well seasoned wood it lights easily,heats the room quickly,is responsive,stays in and with the raised fire box is mesmerizing to watch.Not sure its the best value for money but it will pay for itself so you might as well get what you really want.A wooden door handle would be better. \n Have a Charnwood country 4 in dining room which is nice but there is no comparison.We went for 2 smaller stoves rather than 1 big one as its more flexible,the heat sources are in different parts of the house and you don't end up with a stove that's too hot to sit next to.Roll on winter!\n\n
