The first thing that I noticed about the Wonderwood stove is how light it is (about 250 lbs.) IMHO, any decent woodstove should weight in the 400 to 500 lb range. This weight comes from the use of heavy plate steel (1/4 to 5/16 -inch) and lots of firebrick. I'm wondering if the Wonderwood stove isn't make out of sheet metal?

Also, I like to adjust the air dampers on my stove by myself. On the Wonderwood it is automatic (thermostatically controlled). What this results in is a lot of slow burns once the house is heated up. Slow burns can result in more creosote build-up in the chimney.
