Great product. Each can burns for about 2 hours and 45 minutes. The gel fuel cracks and pops like a real wood burning fire. The only slight negative is their is a slight musty odor that can be detected when the fuel is about to burn out. If you place the lid on the can when the flame is low right before it extinguishes this helps eliminate that problem. Over all great product!
I have to say that I love the product very much. It's really great for people who don't have a real fireplace. It's just like having a real one. It actually warms the house which saves on energy. The only suggestion I will make is to be sure of the color. Unfortunately, the color was much lighter than what I thought it was when it arrived.
I bought a box of FireGlo Fuel with a fireplace from Overstock. The delivery was fast. I love the crackles when you light up the cans. It even gets warm! The only down is the smell of alcohol. IT IS NOT ODORLESS. We have to keep the windows open, but even then, my husband complains about the smell and the headache that comes with it. We would use the FireGlo Fuel a lot more if it didn't smell as strong.
I really like how realistic these make the fireplace look, and they set off heat and crackle like a real fire. They do put off a slight rubbing alcohol type odor, and if you use 3 cans at a time(3 makes a great fire) it can get very expensive.
I purchased a fireplace from Overstock about 6 months ago and thought it would nice in our living room. Well, it is so spectacular that I am now on my third case of FireGlo. We even bought a plasma TV to put over it so that we look at the fire at the same time we watch the TV. The FireGlo crackles just like a fire, and the only time we didn't like the odor was when I forgot to take off the paper. It is a wonderful product.
We purchased this gel fuel with a fireplace and found it to do exactly what it says it would. "Crackled" like a real fire and added a little warmth to the room. The only drawback is that when we used 3 cans at a time there was a slight odor in the house. We usually use 1 can and it's fine. If you want a bit more warmth or ambiance, use 2.
The product works great and snaps, crackles and pops like a wood fire. Only problem is that the product should come with a little more information for those who have never used gel fuel before. When I opened the cans for my first fire I could see small amounts of rust and corrosion and was not sure if I should use it. There is a date stamped on the lid, but no explanation as to what it is for. After an online chat with customer service I found out that a year from the date the gel returns to liquid and could still be used, but must be handled with extreme caution. I never did get a direct answer regarding the rust/corrosion, but the product was only a couple of months old and the exterior of the cans were fine. I have had two fires without any problems.
I purchase a case of these for my new fireplace. They are easy to open and the label is easy to remove before using. They make my fireplace look like there is a real fire. It crackles and flickers as close to a real fire as you can get out of a can. They last as described, Very happy with this product.
I have a three season sunroom and this gel fuel keeps it warm enough for me to sit and enjoy my sunroom on those not so cold days. Each can burns for over two hours. I have tried another gel fuel and FireGlo is better. I cannot get enough of it so I am waiting for it to go on sale so that I can stock up.
