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.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? described to a t.
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.

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.
Love this item but was disappointed because it can in the wrong color (I ordered dark color and it was white). it was also damaged but my husband was able to fix with a little work. all and all I love the was this looks.
What is the duration for burning a can of fuel? Can a fuel container be extinguished and saved for use at a later time? Must the concrete logs be allowed to cool before replacing empty cans of fuel and re-igniting? ThanksProf J on Nov 29, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Prof, most 13-oz can burns up to 3 hours and can be snuffed out and then relit when ready for next use. It is recommended to allow the logs to cool off before touching. We recommend using Item #: 14714753 with this item. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 29, 2014
Hello CurtisClemons12, you would need to purchase the gel separately. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 20, 2014
Will this insert work for model:
Real Flame 'Ashley' Dark Espresso Gel Fireplace Entertainment Center?
It came with one log and it has 3 holes for 3 cans of gel fuel.
I ordered this product a couple of days ago but without measuring.
I can't quite get the measurements and I'm hoping that it'll fit perfectly and causes no problems.
I mean I don't know if it'll fit OR can I use/add a different "set-up" in this model.

Can you place the logs directly over the flame or does it have to go around the flame?ebonaba on Nov 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you ebonaba for the opportunity to help you with the Real Flame 18-inch Convert-To-Gel Log Set. The flame fuel cans that produce the fire are placed directly underneath the logs so the fire comes up and through it to give the affect of a real wood burning flame.

When using this item in a fireplace that uses wood usually, do you have to open the damper in the fireplace? Does the fuel burn clean? No concerns for carbondioxide poisoining? on Mar 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This unit is made of cast concrete, and it requires our gel fuel only, not wood or anything else. The way the unit is set up is; there is a lift that will lift up the top logs leaving the grate and the bottom logs. You place the gel fuel in the center of the grate, then put the lift back down so the logs are resting across the bottom logs and on top of the cans of fuel. Then you light the fuel inside the cans. Only the fuel burns, not the actual logs since they are concrete based. The fuel is made of isopropyl alcohol and burns clean, there is no carbon monoxide, only carbon dioxide which is what we breath out. There is no need to have the flu or damper open. It is made to be completely vent less.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 27, 2012
