Throws off a bit of heat and DOES actually crackle like real fire as it burns. Kind of tricky to extinguish and a little high maintenance to use.
First you have to remove paper labeling, then you must wash lids & use tongs to 'set' back on top of burning can. It is suggested that you wait 30 minutes for cans to cool before handling, THEN YOU MUST SECURE LIDS (like paint cans) TO CLOSE CANS, OR FUEL EVAPORATES. I didn't do this and overnight cans dried out. It seems that 3 hours is the maximum burn time. For me, the ambiance it creates is worth it, but I think the design & ease of use could be improved.

I love the way these crackle like a real log fire does. The only suck thing is their price. They can get a little pricey to burn every night. And having to take the wapper off of each can before they can be used gets a little old. But other then that, love them.
Real Flame is the best brand of gel fuel that I've found.Burns clean and provides a good amount of heat from the fireplace. Overstock had by far the best price, make sure you order the 16can case, it's a much better deal.
Not tried that but the cans do get very hot AFTER they have been used - would not recommend. REMOVE PAPER LABEL!phyllislclegg on Jan 1, 2014
I think the cans are made just for the purpose of going in a gel fireplace.t182 on Jan 5, 2014
If each can last about 3 hr.and I decide to extinguish it after an hour or so does the unit come with a snuffer to snuff out the flame or do I have to find a way to do it on my own?swebb5411 on Dec 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

If you use a snuffer to cover the flame and extinguish it, you can reuse the can at a later time.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 10, 2012
