I recently hosted a cocktail party and the fireplace received more compliments than the food I served. It's chique and very modern design in addition to its practicality gets my two thumbs up. It was very easy to assemble and it fits well in very limited space not to mention it actually gives off heat. I didnt notice any notable smell or exhaust from the flames. Great product.
We bought this to use for both our indoor and outdoor spaces. It's gorgeous, and even quite a bit larger than we thought it would be. Only issue so far is that the gel flames leave a very strong odor as they burn, so we've decided to use it outdoor only. That's the only disappointment though, and I'll continue to hunt for better gel to use.

I have a modern "loft" condo. I put this in the center of a polished concrete coffee table, with a white leather couch surrounding. The idea is that it would be a conversation piece when we had guests over, and a nice "family night" thing like a campfire.
Assembly with 20 minutes, 2 people. Quality of all parts is high.
Just as it does in the picture, it looks like a cross between a candle and a fireplace. The three of them add to this effect. It crackle subtly, and generates quite a bit of heat out the top. I have sprinklers in my unit, with high ceilings, so I ran a fan just in CASE it caused a problem.
Reason this gets 4 stars is more related to the "technology" of the cans. They are smelly when you open and turn off. Not when burning. I would never put this next to a wall, for soot as well as heat/fire issues, but that is me. I didn't observe any soot on the glass walls. I've only used once.
But there is a fair amount of "work" getting cans out, taking paper off, prying lids off (like paint cans), carefully putting them in, lighting with a long wand or match, etc.
Surely I wouldn't want to do this for more than special occasions.
So I think the perfect use of this is for that... for occasional use. Plus you have to realize that the BURNING COST PER HOUR is about $4.50 per hour. Plus your "labor" in setup. I can't compare to other fuel sources.
By the way, this would be spectacular on a covered porch or balcony. Or in the center of a room at a party. And frankly in a commercial setting like a restaurant, etc. It's very elegant. I AM a bit concerned with little kids if I use this a lot, what the residue in the air is, regardless of the manufacturer's recommendation. Just like I wouldn't cook smores over "instalight" logs.

I purchased a different style table fireplace and had problem with the gel fuel. So I returned both gel fuel and the fireplace to Overstock. After I bought a same style fireplace as this from a local store using liquid fuel. I found a problem with the stainless gets burned marks. The marks are permanent.
This fireplace looks like a better design using gel fuel in the can. After they are burned, just throw the cans away and there won't be any dark brown burned marks on the stainless steel. I am going to buy one for my livingroom.
An excellent fit for my midcentury modern house. I sealed the fireplace flu since it was very drafty and so don't use the gas, let alone burn any logs. This is the perfect peice to place flush with the fireplace facade, while offering an elegant way to use large 4" diameter candles, which I found for $10 at Ikea. It was also a great value as custom glass doors would have been far more expensive. This offers a way to actually use the space in a more interesing way with using candles.

I love this fireplace! it looks great. Very easy to use indoors and outdoors. it's sturdy and well made. I was in the market for a wall mount fireplace and at the last minute decided on this one......I'm glad I did. I'm able to move this one from the patio to my bedroom easily.
This is an amazing fireplace!!!! best purchase I have ever made from this site. I purchased the fire gel fuel and while burning it did not have a smell at all...after it burned all the way down it did smell but just for about 25 min. The only thing I didn't like is that the gel fuel burned out within 4 hours, and is pricey...and I did purchase the 13oz.

You could use it on a table but not recommended for a mantle unless the wall behind is brick or other fireproof material.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 23, 2013
