We have always loved the look and warmth of a wood burning fire. The Parkray Aspect 8 also gives us the look we prefer from a fire. For us a wood burner has to be easy to light, easy to control, be able to generate enough heat on those cold nights and nice to look at. The Parkray Aspect 8 achieves all that and with its large window it can be distracting in a nice way, watching the flames is almost like watching an open fire making you lose track with what’s happening on the tv. Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend buying from stove fitter’s ware house again.
