I have always been afraid of our fireplace, for fear that I would catch the house on fire. This product finally offers me the opportunity to have a beautiful lit fireplace for everyone to enjoy without the worry of burning the house down. The logs look extremely realistic, the flames burn like a real fire and they also crackle like a true fire. We are extremely happy with this product and will purchase one for my parents after Christmas.

Very good for a fireplace that does not get much use and when the cost of converting to gas is expensive when compared to use. Logs are decent looking, and have seen much worse in gas fireplaces. The actual fire is OK--better at distance, and the fire lasted about 3 hours. Not a big fire, but gives nice atmosphire without the clean up of wood.

I am really glad I purchased this log set. Even unlit it fills the firebox nicely. When lit, it is very pretty.

I bought this as a christmas gift for my boyfriend. He wanted to install ventless gas logs in our fireplace but after looking at how much it would cost, that went to the bottom of our 'to do' list. I found these, installed them in an hour, and had the fire going when he got home and he is AMAZED by them. What is the best is that our fireplace opening is so small, we had limited options of what to put in it, but this fits perfectly. Love, love, love and I think we'll be purchasing another one for his dad for Christmas.
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!
I would recommend this if I received the correct color. Not sure what is going on with Overstock. past few orders have had little things that didn't work. This time it was the wrong color item was shipped. I ordered the dark colored logs I received the birch colored logs. I read in other remarks that this has happened to others. Will return to get the color logs needed. That said the set looks to be of good quality and if I had a different style home I would keep it.
Really love this product! It's a perfect alternative to a real log fire. Friends were over and never noticed the difference. I like that you don't have to open the flue to enjoy this, especially since it's been bitter cold lately. It gives off a little heat and nice ambiance.
I purchased two of the log sets, one for me and one for my son and daughter in-law. The log set is so easy to use and no clean up and the fire really does crackle like a real fire! No messy clean up just take the gel can out and place in another one and you are ready to use. 100% better than paper logs and it is safe for the environment and no fumes. We all love ours and now the rest of the family wants a set!
If you don't want the cost and hassle of pulling out the old wood burning fireplace, this is fantastic. Very easy and trouble free. There may come a day when I get tired of purchasing and changing out the fuel cans - but the alternative is big $ renovation, so that may be quite awhile. I highly recommend this product for the right situations.
I had despaired of an economical way to use my Victorian hearth without a functioning chimney. This is perfect. The small size fits exactly into the hearth and the fire crackles, is real flame, and warms the room somewhat. It's charming! The unit was not easy to assemble and a rivet broke during assembly (which I simply repaired). The directions were for a somewhat different unit. When all was said and done, I am very happy with the option.
