    1. If you are going to use a double walled pipe you will need to buy an adapter.
    2. The handle on the front door is too short and when opening, if you have medium/large hands, you will be burned on your knuckles. They need to increase the length of the handle about an inch to keep it away from the front of the stove.
    3. The clean out section 3.5"x3.5" of the stove is quite small and requires the stove to be pretty cool to push the ashes through, to the pan, this can be tough when it is freezing outside and you need to keep the stove going for a few days straight.

    Will easily burn overnight with a bed of hot coals left in the morning, if it is loaded at bedtime with a load of decent hardwood. No major complaints other than a little smoke rollout into the room when reloading (open the door slow)overall I am pleased with the product, would recommend. Rating of: 4 out of 5 stars.
