I recently hosted a cocktail party and the fireplace received more compliments than the food I served. It's chique and very modern design in addition to its practicality gets my two thumbs up. It was very easy to assemble and it fits well in very limited space not to mention it actually gives off heat. I didnt notice any notable smell or exhaust from the flames. Great product.
I have a modern "loft" condo. I put this in the center of a polished concrete coffee table, with a white leather couch surrounding. The idea is that it would be a conversation piece when we had guests over, and a nice "family night" thing like a campfire.
Assembly with 20 minutes, 2 people. Quality of all parts is high.
Just as it does in the picture, it looks like a cross between a candle and a fireplace. The three of them add to this effect. It crackle subtly, and generates quite a bit of heat out the top. I have sprinklers in my unit, with high ceilings, so I ran a fan just in CASE it caused a problem.
Reason this gets 4 stars is more related to the "technology" of the cans. They are smelly when you open and turn off. Not when burning. I would never put this next to a wall, for soot as well as heat/fire issues, but that is me. I didn't observe any soot on the glass walls. I've only used once.
But there is a fair amount of "work" getting cans out, taking paper off, prying lids off (like paint cans), carefully putting them in, lighting with a long wand or match, etc.
Surely I wouldn't want to do this for more than special occasions.
So I think the perfect use of this is for that... for occasional use. Plus you have to realize that the BURNING COST PER HOUR is about $4.50 per hour. Plus your "labor" in setup. I can't compare to other fuel sources.
By the way, this would be spectacular on a covered porch or balcony. Or in the center of a room at a party. And frankly in a commercial setting like a restaurant, etc. It's very elegant. I AM a bit concerned with little kids if I use this a lot, what the residue in the air is, regardless of the manufacturer's recommendation. Just like I wouldn't cook smores over "instalight" logs.

We bought this to use for both our indoor and outdoor spaces. It's gorgeous, and even quite a bit larger than we thought it would be. Only issue so far is that the gel flames leave a very strong odor as they burn, so we've decided to use it outdoor only. That's the only disappointment though, and I'll continue to hunt for better gel to use.

An excellent fit for my midcentury modern house. I sealed the fireplace flu since it was very drafty and so don't use the gas, let alone burn any logs. This is the perfect peice to place flush with the fireplace facade, while offering an elegant way to use large 4" diameter candles, which I found for $10 at Ikea. It was also a great value as custom glass doors would have been far more expensive. This offers a way to actually use the space in a more interesing way with using candles.

I purchased a different style table fireplace and had problem with the gel fuel. So I returned both gel fuel and the fireplace to Overstock. After I bought a same style fireplace as this from a local store using liquid fuel. I found a problem with the stainless gets burned marks. The marks are permanent.
This fireplace looks like a better design using gel fuel in the can. After they are burned, just throw the cans away and there won't be any dark brown burned marks on the stainless steel. I am going to buy one for my livingroom.
After I found this fireplace on Overstock I couldn't stop thinking about it and eventually splurged. It's a gorgeous piece that enhances any room. It's even more beautiful when lit. Since the fuel (another product entirely) is rather expensive I only light it about once every two weeks. It gives off a little heat but only if you're close to it so it's purely for asthetics. It's wonderful to be able to have a real fire in my apartment. I use pilar candles in lieu of fuel regularly. This will do just fine until I buy my house with a real wood fireplace. In fact, I'll move this to my bedroom then. Speaking of which, it will take two people to move this around safely, and never move it after you've lit your gel fuel. Enjoy!
My husband and I have owned this fireplace for a year now and I have only great things to say about it. We bought a new house last year and really wanted a fireplace but unfortunately ended up falling in love with a house that didn't have a fireplace. I found this one on overstock and purchased it after reading good reviews. I have to say I don't miss the traditional fireplace w/mantel as this is very portable and has a modern feel. We are a young couple and host lots of gatherings in our home and everyone is always impressed with the modern design and the heat that it throws off. It is definitely ALWAYS a topic of conversation when people see it for the first time. Aside from the look of this fireplace it really came in handy when we lost power last winter and had no heat. We lit this fireplace up and moved it to the entry way so that it would throw heat upstairs and it did just that in about 30 minutes. It was a lifesaver when we were stuck in a home without heat. Overall I recommend this fireplace and would say stop thinking about it and just buy it, you won't regret it.

You could use it on a table but not recommended for a mantle unless the wall behind is brick or other fireproof material.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 23, 2013
