This patio heater is exactly what is needed for the mild Texas winters. It generates sufficient heat to make being outside on the patio a pleasure. The only downside is that there is not a electronic pilot but rather an old fashioned gas pilot light (which is hard to see in the day time).I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
It was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She told me that she had a big Christmas Eve party at here house to show off her newly renovated outdoor patio, but was concerned about the cold forcast that night. I told her to come get her present a day early, so she and her husband put it together in time to use that night. She said that everyone gathered around it in a loose circle and it was the hit of the party.

We are so glad we bought this patio heater. We can now eat dinner outside! It's perfect for entertaining on cool evenings. It seems very safe in that all the controls and heating elements are out of the reach of little hands. So far we've had no problems with it. It lighted right away, was fairly easy to put together, and it looks nice.

This is a real pain to put together. Even once it is together, it was difficult to ignite and just not that great at heating a good amount of space. Wish I would have returned it but I bought it early in the season and only started using it now.
This heater looks and works very nicely. It produces enough heat for our 22'x12' stone patio. I've just started using it this spring so I can't comment yet on it's durability and resistance to weather conditions. I'm a little concerned about rusting problem mentioned in other reviews. I'll update this review in the fall once I have better idea on how it holds up throughout the season exposed to rain and humidity.
