I really like this fireplace. Fairly easy to put together. It does add a cozy feel to the living room. Only two things that would be better: box did not include the two screws to put the screen rod in. Also, the screen does not seem to want to close together very well. So while these would have been nice to have been included and to work better, I am still happy with this fireplace.
This is the most amazing fireplace for such a great price. I love it. Gel fuel is great, doesn't smell while burning and produces heat without heating up the wood frame. You can sit items on top of the fireplace without worrying .... VERY NICE.
This fireplace came in two boxes. Both boxes were well constucted. The fireplace was put together in less than an hour. The construction is sturdy, well made. All pieces fit together like a glove. The gel canisters last about 3 hours. The fireplace throws heat. It will help heat up a 400 square foot room no problem.
I love my fire place. It has very nice real wood and it makes a beautiful fire that crackles and pops just like a wood burning fire without the ashes etc. It really heats the room. It was pretty easy to put together but I was glad I had a friend helping me because, at times I needed more than two hands.
Our house doesn't have a fireplace, and after doing some research I took a chance on this. This has really exceeded my expectations. I was really going for more of an aesthetic when buying this, but that gel fuel really does heat up our living room. And on days/nights that haven't been too cold, we've placed four large jar candles in the firebox and lit those. With just those candles going, it still makes a very cozy atmosphere. The fireplace was very easy to assemble. The wood is very sturdy, as is the firebox. I give this a 4.5 out of 5. The only reason I don't give it a full 5 stars is because of the gel fuel fumes. The instructions say that there will be fumes when you first light the gel fuel. The smell does hang around for a bit, but it's not bad. On our first burn, the smell was around for a few minutes, then was gone. On the next one, the smell hung around for about a half and hour. Small price to pay for the benefits!
