You feel warmer just watching the flickering crackling flames. Love It! It is not going to fool anyone,but it creates a nice glow, it is perfect for my fireplace which i used to have a fireplace candle rack in. I just wanted something different and this is perfect. It may persuade me to install gas logs at some point, but for now it is just delightful. the gel fuel does not really burn as long as i expected only about 2 hours , but i guess that's ok too.

Since I cannot use my real fireplace, the chimney needs to be replaced, I took a chance and order this. I've been very happy with the look of the fire and I saved myself $9,000 with not getting the chimney fixed. Someday, but until then, I'll be happy with my little fake logs.

I am very happy with this gel-log set. The box was well package but very heavy. The directions confused the front and back log so just reverse the 2 when you assemble (it will be obvious). The crackling of the gel fuel makes it feel like a real fire. The gel cans lasted about 1.5 hours, they did start to smell a little "chemically" for the last 15 minutes of burning but the smell was not strong enough to make me stop burning them. I am very pleased with this log set.

One of the logs appeared to be made backwards so could not be assembled as per instruction picture. So all my small logs are in a row instead of one leaning across another as in the picture on the box. So not quite as aesthetically pleasing as expected but functions fine in an existing bedroom fireplace. Gel fuel says to 'shake' can and then wipe gel off of lids. This is a messy, unpleasant process. Once open, gel fuel burns itself out after 2-3 hours so seems pretty safe for my use. Flames look nice/big. It's not as realistic as a gas fireplace but better than candles. Big birch logs look real enough that I'm satisfied.

The logs look so realistic and the metal grate is very high quality. The shipment arrived on time and the packaging was perfect. The instructions told you what to do without any complications. The Real Flame Birch log set looks great when it's burning and just as nice when it's not. I would tell anyone to get this product. When the gel cans are burning the flame looks so real that I forget that it's not. Just wonderful all the way around. What are you waiting for? Buy this and you will love it!!!!

I really like the look of this log set. I will note that the first set arrived with broken logs (probably a combination of inadequate packing materials and the box not being handled with care during the shipping process), however Overstock was great and sent me a replacement set very quickly. The second set arrived undamaged and looks really nice in my fireplace.
Well I must admit no fault of overstock BUT I'm just not feeling this.I thought I could pacify my desire for afire in my fireplace w/o a real fire but I miss the smell & warmth of a real fire. It probably is great if you just want ambiance
If you love your fireplace, but do not want the mess and clean up of burning real logs, this is an amazing product. I loved mine so much that I bought three more and gave them as Christmas Gifts to my mom and sisters. The logs look real and you cannot see the real flame gel canisters unless you are standing over the logs..... Amazing purchase and so easy to use any time....!
This fireplace log set works great. The only thing I can I can find fault with is the black mark left by the flame on one of the logs that cross directly over the burning gel. The white oak scheme magnifies the black mark and if I had to do over again, I would get the oak colored set. Still a nice buy.
