    from Pennsylvania asked:
    December 11, 2012
    Does this stove require electricity?
    1 Answer
    No, electricity is not required for operation of this stove, as it uses a millivolt ignition system. This pilot system has a small flame that generates power for the unit's gas valve to operate. As a result, they do not require outside power to operate and can be used in the event of a power outage.

    Love this stove!
    This amazing cast iron stove looks great! It arrived in perfect condition and was easy to set-up using the enclosed Instructions and Owner's Manual. We have an all electric HVAC system in our Texas country home, so it's nice to have this in place using our large propane tank source. It has a beautiful and richly colored mahogany finish and really cranks out the heat, even on the lower setting. I set it up in our living room using stacked stone slate wall and floor tile. As an earlier review mentions, the doors tend to swing open, but I cured that with a couple of small ceramic magnets from the local big-box hardware store. They are small, inconspicuous and hold the doors shut but allows them to easily be opened when desired. There is no glass in the doors, by design, but the front of the stove looks great whether they are open or closed. This Empire cast iron porcelain stove is perfect for us.
    ProsAppearance, heating capacity, realistic looking log and fire system included, online support and fast delivery by FedEx.

    working great
    Installed the heater a few days ago and is working quite well. Purchased the optional fan blower which really helps put out the heat. Also purchased the wireless thermostat and receiver which is a nice combination. Be sure to follow the instructions included that enables the thermostat to communicate with the receiver.
    ProsAppears to have heavy well-built construction. Easy to assemble.

    Excellent Stove In All Respects But One
    The installer had no problem setting everything up with this stove. The logs are realistic-looking and the flame is pleasant to watch. The heat generated by this stove is excellent. I was able to stop using my heat pump to heat the house since the stove was installed and reduced my electric bill considerably. I have 9' ceilings and turn on the ceiling fans to move the heat around. In terms of overall value and functionality, this stove is an excellent value. The only reason I do not give a 5th star is because the two front doors on the stove will not stay closed. The stove is perfectly level, but the two front doors swing open and remain that way. I called the manufacturer but was not able to get any way to solve the problem. I ended up using a dark color wire tie to fasten the two door frames together and keep them closed. It's inconspicuous and I've not given it any further thought. Actually, there does not seem to be much logic to opening the doors, which are only a metal frame without any glass.

    ConsInability to keep the doors of the stove closed.
