they're more or less garbage, not bad for a twice a year cabin heater with wood and a manual damper to control the fire. Correction: even then they're too expensive! @ 380 you can find some very good quality old stoves, cast iron potbellys (for coal) and fisher/timberline (for wood) types on craigslist that will far exceed the quality of the vogelzang! buy a good condition old potbelly coal stove from the paper or craigslist, disassemble, clean, seal, then reassemble it and you will have a MUCH MUCH better and SAFER stove for likely less $$ than the vogelzang.
i cant even sell mine for 50 bucks on craigslist!
i have had a couple of wack jobs call about it though.
there are some strange people out there!
