We use this stove often in the winter, even here in northern Florida. Grandkids love to get up in the morn and turn on fire/heat and watch cartoons next to it. At night, it creates a nice cozy mood in the den, and when friends come in from a chilly outside, they back up to it to warm up just like it's a real fireplace! Have had it for 10 years and it's still as good as new.

The best under $$$ that I have spent. It looks wonderful and takes me back to my childhood of fire places and wood burning stoves. I bought this on the reviews and have recommended it to everyone I know. Love it.

I wanted a small substitute for a fireplace. I wanted one that would generate some heat, but ambiance was more important. This stove does everything. It is a perfect size to fit beneath a windowsill. It uses ordinary electric service. The top remains cool to the touch so I have placed a lamp atop my stove. The stove has two heat settings (something either not mentioned on-line or else I overlooked this feature). Variable heat settings were something that made me consider a more expensive unit before I purchased this one. I was surprised and pleased by this feature. I was also worried that the 'flame' would look fake. Somehow with the magic of illusion, this little gem creates a realistic looking 'flame' above the logs. The logs glow and are not all that realistic, but the 'flames' are great. I love my Dimplex stove and highly recommend it to anyone in need of a small fireplace substitute.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The information and color photo exactly depicted my electric flame stove when it arrived.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This stove is all metal and glass. No plastic. It arrived assembled, all I had to do was pull it out of the box, remove packing, and plug it in. It worked immediately, and continues to work exactly as advertised.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfect!
Purchased this unit for the downstairs bedroom as it stays a lot cooler than the upstairs. We were very pleased with the appearance and operations when we received it, but the test was when the in-laws came to visit us this fall and they loved the stove and how well it worked as well. Living in the Rockies tends to get chilly at night and they never had any problems, even though it's a very large bedroom. Highly recommend the stove.
I love this little fireplace. It adds such a nice, cozy ambiance to our living room. It is very sturdy and seems to be made of quality materials. You can use the heat setting or turn it off for just the ambiance. It heats up our little living room very quickly! We have an unusable "fireplace" and I just placed this inside the fireplace. The only thing that I wish it had was the crackeling sound of a real fire. But seriously, for the price this is an excellent product.
I have to admit that the picture is misleading. Compared to other units, you should know that this heater is rather small in size and looks better set on a table. However, it does generate some serious heat and is perfect for a small room. The unit does not look cheap. I wish it had a remote control because it does not have an automatic shut off. You can just imagine when you're falling asleep how much of a pain it is to get up to shut it off. But all in all it's a great value and looks much better than conventional space heaters. Everyone who sees it is so impressed with how well it looks and functions. Also, it's cool to the touch so you can set items above for display without fear of it overheating. Highly recommend this little unit.
The reason I give this four stars is only because I wish it had a graduated heat setting and I could adjust it once the chill was out of the room. Other than that I am very happy with this purchase and have had none of the problems mentioned by other reviewers. This winter is the first year I've really been warm and cozy, despite always having paid fairly high heat bills, and being actually warm has not increased my bill. I am still paying the same average amount for this time of year in a very damp, cold climate. I like that it is small and I can easily move it from room to room when I want, and being small it's easy to find a space to fit it in. I'm quite pleased with this purchase and would recommend it.
This is a cute little fireplace/ heater. It is small but heats up my mud room very well. The heat comes from the bottom and not in front but within about a 1/2 hr the room is pretty toasty. Now, it does not look like a real fireplace but close enough for the price! The flames look good, not too cheesy. I
I wanted a small fireplace/heater for my living room and this is perfect! It gives off enough heat on low to warm the room. I tried it on high to see how warm the room got and had to turn it back down to the low temp. I love the flame...it's realistic enough for me!!! It's quiet and gives the perfect ambience to the room. Note: it's not hot to the touch as I have two young grandsons who touch everything. Also, it's very sturdy. If you're on the fence about this one...go for it!!!
I owned one of these little stoves for 11 years. It was great and help to keep two rooms warm whenever the heat wasn't sent up in our Apt. Bld. After all those years it finally gave way, one of the switches stopped working. I couldn't find that exact one I had, so bought this one. It is Great, works just like the old one did and never fails to warm up the same two Large rooms. Love it and would buy it again . Friends Love it because it looks so real.
Glad I purchased this dimplex stove. Heats great and the flames look so real. Have used it alot since I bought it and keeps my heater at home from over working. My living room was always cold due to the heat rising upstairs. Was so impressed that I purchased a fireplace from dimplex to replace the stove which is know in my kitchen. Highly recommend.
I was sort of desperate for a good heater. I talked to a rep and together we decided this little beauty was just right. it is attractive sturdy and puts out a lot of heat. but, there is only one speed, full on no low speed. which is a pain when you want to just warm up the room. you do have to turn it on and off at the stove , there is no thermostat. I don't know how much it will cost me on my electric bill ...yet .because it stays on all the time if you don't get down there and turn it off. but, it is a sweet little work horse, keeps me warm and looks good doing it. best heater I have had. I have been looking so long for a heater that is strong enough to keep me warm . the flimsy electric heaters are light weight compared to this one. love it......so far. p.s. it is so cute, it has logs and flames like a real fireplace.:)
Adorable little heater that really heats up our sunroom which is over 300sq. feet. The flame is very realistic and we love the fact that our pets or children do not get burned when they touch the glass. Because of its small size, it will be easy to store in the off season. Great value for the money.
