Had this stove now for a few months and it could not be better. It lights easily, the airwash is efficient, the heat out put is controllable (seem to get more controllability with well seasoned logs) and the big glass door gives a lovely view of the flames. I haven't tried to burn overnight, however one one occasion the fire did keep going overnight, so maybe a score of 3 is a bit mean.\n\nMost importantly the stove is heating a large room which is part of a single storey extension, this room has always been difficult to heat but this stove is keeping us "well toasty". It isn't the cheapest stove out there, but so far I would say you get what you pay for.....and this was worth every penny.
