The Amish Know Space Heaters

We came across this article from the New York Times that delves into the phenomena of the Roll-n-Glow, a space heater built by the Amish. We’ve know the Amish are known for their craftsmanship and the rise of Amish contractors hasn’t abated, but the Amish as mainstream product manufacturers is something new.

According to the Times the mantel is built with Amish hands but the heater itself is Chinese made. Has anyone purchased this heater? What do you think?
