I am very happy with my purchase. This holds a lot of wood-not sure how much a "cord" is as I am storing my own chopped wood, so I can't say exactly how much. But I would guess at 250- 300 logs. It comes with a cover and is a wonderful value. I bought this 8' one and also a smaller 4' one. Assembly is easy: able to do-it-yourself but a little awkward with only 1 person. 20-30 min. Only set this up 2 weeks ago, so not sure how it will last through the years.

We are very happy with this log set. We stopped using our wood-burning fireplace because I am sensative to smoke, and hated losing all of our house heat up the flu every time we had a fire. But I missed the coziness and ambience of a fire burning in our living room. I looked at a gas conversion, but it was pricey and we still wanted the option of having a log fire. I also looked at electrical fake fires, but they just don't cut it. I read lots of reviews and they all seemed positive, so we bought a set. We decided to get the larger (24 inch) set which was inexplicably cheaper than the 18 inch set. It takes 3 gel cans, which may be why it is less popular, but we actually like it better because it gives you the flexibility of using 1, 2 or 3 cans. Because it has 3 spaces for the flame, when you use only one gel can, it has a very nice flame in the middle, which is enough to give the appearance of a cozy little fire. With the 3 cans it makes a bigger fire display which is nice when you want it to look more like a roaring fire. This is flexibility that the 18 inch, with only 2 spaces for flame doesn't have (it wouldn't look right to me to have flame only on one side). The set was easy to put together, except for the screw hole machining which wasn't quite accurate enough. We had to struggle to get 2 of the small logs screwed into place. But once in, it looks and works great. Despite what I read in some reviews, there is absolutely NO smell. And I am extremely scent and smoke sensitive, so I was a bit worried. I can smell nothing at all when the gel flame is burning (what a relief) until it reaches the very end of the can. Then it has a faint odor briefly. I think they improved the fuel and some earlier reviews may have been users of earlier types. Also, if you forget to take off the label, I suppose it is possible the label might have a smell if it burns. I LOVE the crackling sound - it really creates the illusion that there is a real wood fire. And the flame is very irregular and also looks like a real wood flame - better than some gas fireplace flames. I think if they could find a way to cover the tops of the cans a bit more (you can see them if you are standing over the log set) you would really assume this is a wood fire unless you look closely. We are very please with it!

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.

Gel fuel is creates a surprising amount of heat and burns easily for 3 hours (ea can). My indoor fireplace takes 3 cans but I normally used only two at a time because the heat from 2 cans was enough, also I was able to conserve use. The best part is that it really crackles like real wood! This made it worth it to purchase a portable indoor fireplace to cozy up my living room.

Before this I couldn't find this product in town and used sterno cans instead. Fireglo makes a beautiful and long lasting fire that is better than a wooden one.....no messy ashes to clean up!

The gel flame is cool. I like the way it pops to simulate wood burning.

I love my new fireplace. It has no muss, no fuss, and it gives off just enough heat. It crackles just like a wood fireplace. It is one of my best purchases.

This unit comes in three boxes and need some work to put it together. But it really looks like real wood and works great.

I love this product. Everything that I thought it would be. It does let off a bit of fumes at the end, but nothing to bad. Crackled just like a real wood would do in a fire.

This is a very nice piece of furniture. There were a few flaws in the wood. It requires 2 people to put it together. Overall it will be a nice addition to my living room.

Nice sturdy piece of furniture. The wood used was heavy and substantial. It was not hard to assemble. The fireplace looks pretty realistic and heats the room nicely.

Wanted a kitchen "fireplace" that could also house my cookbooks and a 32" smart tv--this was it! Nice wood finish, sturdy construction, and simple, elegant design. Great deal!

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.

This is unbelievably realistic. It really looks like real wood and a real fire. There is even a crackling noise. My best friend came over and asked if the wood was real. It is a great deal, and you will not be disappointed. It puts out heat, too! I cannot say enough positive things about this product. It's great!

Unique and contemporary piece. Didn't like the shiny, black of the fireplace, so applied some mosiac tile and it looks great. Have had some difficulty finding a good fitting "wood" insert, but finally located one.

I was a little worried about this fireplace when I ordered it but I'm so glad I did. It hangs just like a picture and included the hardware. The gel crackles and pops just like wood and the fireplaces make the room feel cozy. I'm looking for another for my bedroom.

I live in Florida so I really don't need the warmth of a wood burning fireplace. I just like the look and feel of a fire. There was no assembly required. I just took it out of the box and hung it on the wall. I even hang it in my camper when I go on trips. I love my gel fireplace!!!
