    • Looks great......BUT.....
      Verified Purchase

      The overall look of the fireplace and real flame look great. However, the odor emitted by the gel fuel was upsetting enough that we changed the insert to an electric unit, which is much better. The mantle is the same and I mistakenly purchased the wrong one. My bad!

      I build / repair / maintain fireplaces for a living. I bought this to build a prototype surround to sell retail. I recently built a fireplace for a bar. They wanted gas, when I explained why it was a bad idea and that electric doesn't look bad anymore, they said ok, but make sure it's top notch. So I bought a top notch electric fireplace costing 900.00. IT WAS HALF AS GOOD AS THIS ONE! This one is crazy good looking! the controls have more features than models that cost 3x as much. I'm not even joking! I thought I was using the one I bought for a prototype then I was going to buy higher end ones. NOPE! I'm sticking with this.

      You would think that this would be a lot more expensive. Looks like real fire. I have had three people over and all three of them thought it was. Very pleased.

      I read the reviews before I bought this firebox, and was impressed with what I read from other buyers about this unit. The look of a real fire when lit, and the heat that it throws to warm a room on that chilly night says it all. I bought this unit to place inside of a faux antique mantle/fireplace, and with a fire screen it looks like a real fire. I also like the option of just the ambiance of fire without heat. You can do both with this firebox and it comes with a handy remote to ease your use. Just plug in and use. It's a great feature for any room.

    Questions & Answers

    • What is the reason this insert Model 4099 can only be used in Real Flame fireplace mantels only? I have a fireplace mantel that looks just like the one in the video. It is open in the back and all the way around where the firebox would fit. It is the correct size for my mantel and really like the looks of it. I would like to hear from some of the others that purchased this unit as it appears that some of them might not have had the Real Flame fireplace mantle to install it in either.

Does anyone have the exact measurements for this unit? Or could you tell me how far out it would sit from the front of the firebox? Thanks very much!

      • Hello Doublebogey, this is tapered. The back is 18 inches wide. I think this would stick out of your fireplace about half way. Have a great day!
