Review of Country Kiln Cathedral stove

Very good stove for that price!

At first I wasn't sure I was doing the right thing. For the price of this stove I thought it would be made out of cardboard or something. Wow I was amazed! This stove looks great, much much better then the pictures at the Country Kiln's website. And boy was it heavy, we had to be three people to carry it from one room to its final place in the house. I think the build and finishing are a little bit rough but it does give out a lot of heat. To my surprise I also found out that it had a riddling gate which for some odd reason was not mentioned in the website, nice surprise. An additional feature it has is a lever at the bottom which when opened supplies additional air to the back of the stove. Overall I think it is a very nice and functional stove and looking at the price, definitely worth it. Thumbs up for this stove!
