Nice logs, for very good price.I love this idiom.Read More
I needed something for my fireplace that I didn't want to burn actual wood in. I ordered the white 22" logs. Glad I ordered the large, the 18" would have looked too small in the fireplace. This arrived quickly within a week (Overstock is always fast), fair price, pretty easy to assemble. It is very heavy-duty construction, not cheaply made, and it is heavy, not light-weight. So assemble it near your fireplace so you don't have to carry it far. The logs are solid and heavy ceramic, and the grate is really sturdy like a true grate. I ordered a case of the gel cans at a good price too. Assembly was pretty easy, about 15 minutes with a Phillips-head screwdriver. One log screw didn't match up, but I worked around it. My only complaint, and seriously this is the only complaint, is when you stand right in front of the fire looking down, you can see the tops of the gel cans between the logs. Otherwise, sitting in the room or standing away from the fireplace, all you see is the flames. It looks identical to the pic. Very pretty and actually gives off a little heat. Someone reviewed that the logs turn black when burnt. Well, it is supposed to look realistic, and that's what happens to logs in a fire. They did turn a little black near the flames, but to me that only authenticates the look; otherwise, they would be too white and appear fake. Another reviewer said it smells funny. The gel gives off a rubbing alcohol smell at first, so I'm guessing that's what's burning in the get. Amazingly the gel does give off a crackling sound like burning wood - nice! I burned it for Thanksgiving dinner guests, and everyone thought it was beautiful and created great ambiance, with no odor. VERY PLEASED WITH MY PURCHASE!Read More
Love the look of the fireplace, but they should let you know that the logs will turn black. Also, it can be tricky to put together as the logs can be difficult to screw in, but the most disappointing about this product is the lever to raise the logs. It was loose when it arrived and did not hold up the logs and it actually broke when I tried to use it to raise the logs to replace the gel cans. Thought I would be getting a better quality product for the money.Read More
Looks just like the pictures, easy to set up. People notices it right a way. Looks great.Read More
I have used these logs once since I bought them. They do give off heat, when used with the gel fuel recommended. They look realistic, and fit well in the fireplace. The assembly was a bit difficult. Some of the screws to attach the logs to the lift handle were hard to put in. I would still recommend the product.Read More
I actually love this product and gave it 4 stars because after the first use, the logs no longer look clean. There are black burn areas along the sides of the logs which only affects the aesthetics of the product and not it's functionality. If only my husband and I are enjoying the fire, I leave the logs in the upright position to prevent further scorching of the logs. My friends love it and are jealous that I had an older wood fireplace that is now safe and enjoyable to use. I would recommend as an alternative to a wood or gas fireplace. There is no mess, minimal odor, very little heat discharged and lots of ambiance.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello kalinalvey, no, this does not need to be plugged in. Thanks for shopping with us!
I have a fireplace where the chimney has been closed off, but an electrical outlet has been put in the fireplace. I can't burn actual firewood in the fireplace because the chimney is closed off. Could I still use these gels in this fireplace?
Hello kalinalvey, yes, you could use this log set in your closed-off fireplace. Thank you for shopping with us!
Does this take up to 3 cans of gel or 2?
Hello poolikey, This takes 3 cans of gel. Have a great weekend!
What is meant by converting to gel? We have a wood burning fireplace and would like to use the ceramic logs with gel fuel. Is anything special required?
You will need to check with the manufacture of your fireplace to see if the fireplace you have can be converted safely.
Are dimensions correct on this? 24 inches tall?
The actual dimensions are 25.5 inches (L) x 13.5 inches (D) x 12 inches (H). We''re sorry for any confusion.

Best Sunroom Furnishing Ideas
Sunrooms are often some of the most popular areas of any home. Large windows and garden views make sunrooms feel like outdoor retreats while still providing the cover and warmth of indoor rooms. Because sunrooms are connected more to the outdoors than any other room in your home, pick design elements and furniture that work with that theme. Below, you'll find some of the best sunroom furnishing ideas. Seating: One of the most important parts of a sunroom is the seating arrangement. Since you'll likely want to spend many warm nights and bright days in your sunroom, you'll need adequate seating. Sunrooms typically feature either wood furniture or wrought iron seating. When deciding what's right for you, consider the overall look of the room as well as the intended comfort level. Wooden furniture with thick cushions is warmer and more comfortable than metal. A wicker sectional sofa with comfortable cushions will work well with the design of a sunroom. Alternatively, wrought iron benches and chairs give a modern look and feel to a room. Mismatched plush armchairs are a great way to bring both comfort and casual elegance to a sunroom. Tables: When picking out tables for your sunroom, consider how you're going to use the area. Choose a low table that can act as a coffee table for guests to set down their drinks. Tables with glass inserts match sunrooms well because of surrounding glass windows. Sunrooms are a popular place to go during parties and family get-togethers, so consider adding a small dining table and chairs to the room for meals. Design elements: Although sunrooms are indoors, they tie in the nature and wonder of the outdoors. Choose design elements that bring both sun and nature into the room. Wicker planters can hold plants of your choice. Place planters on side tables and on the floor next to entrances to give an inviting impression as guests enter the room. Artwork can change a bland sunroom into something charming and interesting. Look for paintings and sculptures that incorporate colors and themes from the surrounding decor.
