Final Thoughts
This heater is highly efficient which make this stove very attractive. Most people who buy this wood-burning stove enjoy it and keep it for ridiculously long periods of time.

A built-in, yet extremely effective airwash system keeps the large windows clean and free of condensation, allowing you to enjoy the large view of the fire.

Want to get cozy and warm in the winter time? Whether you’re at home, or at a cottage – this is the wood burning stove for you
