I first purchased the 16 can case of Real Flame Gel Fuel from Real Flame for $**.**. I was very happy to find this product at Overstock; their price was $**.**. This Gel Fuel crackles and sounds like real wood burning, but it has no smoke, and it puts out a great deal of heat. I love this product and highly recommend it.

I have always used Real Flame gel fuel with my gel fireplaces. It crackles just like a real fire! It usually burns for about 3 hours. It does give off some heat which you can feel even sitting five feet away.

If you're "on the fence" I say buy it! It looks just like the picture. It does put out more heat than I expected. And It gets hot on top the fireplace. I've only had it a wk. so I'm worried it's going to discolor my wall above it. The wall does feel very warm to the touch. It has a protectent behind it, and it does not get hot on sides or front. It really looks beautiful with flamless candles too. The gel fuel cans do last about 3 hrs. as promised. I let it burn the whole 3 hrs. and had no problems. Feels and sounds like a real fireplace. Easy to hang up. Fantastic!!

One downside to gel fuel fireplaces is the cost of the gel, not to mention finding it. Having exhausted local possibilities, I trawled the net and found these guys. Realflame does a good flame: very tall and bright, with the occasional crack and pop for effect. Most of the cans I've tried so far come in around the three hour mark, too, so that works out very well. All in all, a good value.

This stuff is GREAT!!!! Several years ago I purchased an indoor fireplace form Overstock, and this is the best fuel to use in it. It burns clean with no smoke or fumes (remember to take the paper off the can-it's easy). The fuel crackles while it burns and the flames flicker just as in my old, larger fireplace in my old apartment, so I've gotten that old "glow" back. My only caveat is that it is a bit pricey, but frequent discounts, and the accruel of O dollars helps......

After I found this fireplace on Overstock I couldn't stop thinking about it and eventually splurged. It's a gorgeous piece that enhances any room. It's even more beautiful when lit. Since the fuel (another product entirely) is rather expensive I only light it about once every two weeks. It gives off a little heat but only if you're close to it so it's purely for asthetics. It's wonderful to be able to have a real fire in my apartment. I use pilar candles in lieu of fuel regularly. This will do just fine until I buy my house with a real wood fireplace. In fact, I'll move this to my bedroom then. Speaking of which, it will take two people to move this around safely, and never move it after you've lit your gel fuel. Enjoy!

I have been searching for well over a year for an indoor fireplace. I debated on whether to purchase an electric or gel fuel fireplace. After much consideration, I chose to go with the gel fuel as it would serve as an alternate heating source during a power outage. I purchased the Dublin Mahogany gel fuel fireplace and I LOVE IT!!!! It is very well made and looks absolutely beautiful in my upstairs bonus room. The color is just slightly different than it appears on the website but as for the unit as a whole I am COMPLETELY thrilled with my overstock purchase!!!!

Our house doesn't have a fireplace, and after doing some research I took a chance on this. This has really exceeded my expectations. I was really going for more of an aesthetic when buying this, but that gel fuel really does heat up our living room. And on days/nights that haven't been too cold, we've placed four large jar candles in the firebox and lit those. With just those candles going, it still makes a very cozy atmosphere. The fireplace was very easy to assemble. The wood is very sturdy, as is the firebox. I give this a 4.5 out of 5. The only reason I don't give it a full 5 stars is because of the gel fuel fumes. The instructions say that there will be fumes when you first light the gel fuel. The smell does hang around for a bit, but it's not bad. On our first burn, the smell was around for a few minutes, then was gone. On the next one, the smell hung around for about a half and hour. Small price to pay for the benefits!

I love the look of this fireplace. It really compliments the oil rubbed bronze fixtures in my bathroom. It adds to the spa like feel I wanted in the room. I haven't used it yet as the weather is warmer but look forward to using it this Fall to take the chill out of the bathroom before relaxing in my tub.

This product is a great alternative to messy wood for a wood burning fireplace. I just moved into a rental unit that has a wood burning fireplace and found this while looking for a fireplace candelabra. I'm so glad I took a chance on this! One used it on four occasions and I love the fact that there is zero mess. It's easy to use although I did have a friend help with the setup which requires a screwdriver. We modified the placement of the top logs a bit to what seemed to work best. I got the pine wood instead of the birch and am glad as the area where smoke hits the wood is now black. I bought extra gel fuel and they seem to last 2.5-3 hours. Haven't had to extinguish them mid-burn, but there are instructions for that. This site had the unit at the lowest price I could find and with free shipping it arrived on my doorstep so it was only a matter of pulling it into the front door. The unit us heavy!

This gel fuel burns clean and produces zero oder. It gives off suffeciant heat, but not enought to heat a big room. It makes popping sounds like real wood burning in a fireplace. Would recommend!

It works great for my hanging fireplace. It throws good amount of heat when all three cans are lit.

I was so surprised [read: disappointed] to learn that our fireplace had no chimney!?! So, imagine how thrilled we were to discover these gel fuel canisters! They burn with that same seasonal sound we all love in a fire: a gentle crackle, with the hiss of a log burning! We were amazed!! Hours and hours of warmth with an atmosphere we didn't think our flueless home would ever enjoy!! This case of 24 will last past any winter season, (even if the chill carries into April); and, provide us lasting enjoyment! Highly recommended!

Color wasn't so great--had to spray paint it a bronze slightly metallic paint to make it look nicer. Had high expectations based on the reviews but the gel fuel really stinks in a smaller home---very chemical smell and I don't think I have a particularly strong sense of smell. Would I have spent $XXX if I knew what it really looked like ad hw the gel fuel smelled? No. Do I painfully regret buying it? No. Will look for a less stinky gel fuel.

This arrived and I was very excited. My husband and I tookabout 30 minutes to put it together. (There was one area that was metal and not threaded but we were able to make it work) I put it against the wall and lit the gel. It was great how nice it looked and how authentic it seemed with the gel fuel. I was surprise how well it heated the area. We actually had to open the windows to get some of the heat out since I wanted to test the full time of the gel cans in the fireplace. (I did not buy this for heat but rather the look) I only use one or two now and it looks just as good. I have gotten a lot of compliments on the fireplace. This was money very well spent.

This stuff is magic! I pruchased the freestanding Loft Fireplace earlier knowing I would need fuel, so this was an easy next step. I have had real fireplaces before in other residences, but not in this one, so this was the perfect solution since I love them and missed having one. I had been reduced to watching fireplace videos; not the same! While I will say there was a very slight odor at the be-ginning it soon disappeared, and I remembered to slightly crack a window open as I usually did when using my actual fireplace anyway. What a joy and a pleasure to watch the flames dance and to actually feel the warmth.It snowed today-I'll have a lovely fire tonight.....

This product works beautifully and burns clean and complete. Be sure to remove the paper as directed by the directions on the can. Love it! Works wonderful and last about 31/2 hours.
