The package arrived 3 days after purchasing, the box was a little dinged, but everything inside was unharmed. It went together in less than an hour. But what's the fire look like??? That was my main concern with purchasing an electric heater. I really wanted the gel fuel type, but decided the fuel would get too pricey and decided to go with this kind, all the while skeptical of what the flames would look like.
I think they look pretty good! I've seen some that look terrible, but this has a nice orange yellow glow, looks like some real flickering at the tops, and the ability to turn down the brightness of the flames and log with 5 levels for each is nice. I tool a video and wanted to attach it, but can't. In short, I'm pleased!
This is one of those 'it is what it is' items. My Pawpaw had one a thousand years ago and we have one today. For what it is, it's 100%. Holds about 1-2 days worth of brutal Connecticut-weather wood for our fireplace. This is a small one we keep in our mudroom, a larger one outside the basement door and the world's largest in the yard, covered.
Assembly? I think I read some assembly woes before I purchased. Let's just say that while I was away my husband tried to assemble it and could not. He then promptly threw away the packaging and instructions before I got home. I hauled the 8 or so tubes and however-many screws to the living room that evening and within 10 minutes it was assembled. Zero issue. Well, one self-inflicted issue, I didn't refer to the photo I found on Overstock closely and screwed in both tubes to the inside of the base, not the outside of the base. So I had to waste about 45 seconds unscrewing and re-screwing. My fault and hardly a hassle.
I mean is any log holder re...
I'm so happy I bought the gel fuel version of this fireplace. It took me 1+ hours to put together myself. Once it was together it was too heavy to move so I had to wait for my brother to come over and help. Because of the weight it is a very sturdy piece of furniture and I feel that my 42" TV is perfectly safe on top.
The piece is beautiful! I have been burning two cans at one time and that is plenty to heat of my great room. The fireglo gel I bought crackles nicely and is a little smokey when at the bottom of the can. I bought a can snuffer to make it easier to put out. Each can lasts almost 3 hours. I haven't noticed any smell. My only complaint is with the fuel cans which I find difficult to open.
Would recommend this fireplace to everyone!
The brushed nickel finish is perfect with my decor!!! Looked all over for just the right screen and i'm glad i didn't settle for less, as soon as this popped up on Overstock I knew this was the one! I an very pleased with Overstock, their prices and delivery can't be beat!!!
