Reducing the hopper size for the insert will result in lower burn times of between 27 and 48 hours depending on how much the hopper size is reduced
The air damper must be adjusted manually to suit the burn rate.
If using an optional thermostat in on/off mode, there are concerns that the life of the igniter may be shortened through increased use.
The insert has no ash drawer.
Although the manual says a mix of corn and pellets may be used, the warranty says only wood pellets may be used.
