Several years ago we bought a ventless fireplace which is not portable and resembles a standard fireplace design with a mantle and wooden uprights, sides, etc. That fireplace has worked so well for us that we talked about adding another, in a different room, this year. Instead, we decided to purchase this portable one, after seriously considering a wall mount. This little beauty arrived yesterday, alongwith a carton of gel fuel cans (sold separately). We're already in love with it. We fired up this charming little gizmo in our kitchen and had a flickering fire while we ate our dinner. Then, this morning, I carried it into our bathroom, lit the fuel, and in practically no time, the chill was gone from the room and I showered in complete comfort and luxury. As Florida residents we do not have long bone-chilling sustained winters, however, we do have enough weeks of non-tropical temps that this purchase makes sense to us. And, since it's portable and small, we can easily store it away if we choose, over the hot summer months, and deight in relighting it when our temps are effected by the artic blasts. Haven't tried the candle option yet, but anticipate that it'll be fine. (My husband thinks we should tell Jim Cantore about this fireplace.) If you are hestitating to purchase one, yet feel drawn to it, have no fears. You won't be disappointed. Easy set up: remove it from the box, mount the glass guards with their small cushions, light the gel fuel, and enjoy.
This is a cute little firebox. It gives very little heat. The fire is not pretty. The gel smells and made my head hurt. I placed it in an area that was big enough for the fumes to dissipate in the air, The order was still unpleasant.
If you are looking for a large fireplace that puts out a lot of heat, this one is not for you. But if you are looking for "atmosphere" and fun to look at, this is perfect. My husband put it out by our pool and we thoroughly enjoy looking at the flame, along with the water from our pool fountain.
We also bought a box of the canned "flame" that you will need for the fireplace, and they really do last 2-3 hours. Very satisfied with the purchase.
I love this little fireplace! I have it in my dining room right now but plan on putting it out on the porch this summer. It is nice to have an actual fire but since the gel cans are expensive I will use it with pillar candles form time to time. I didn't really notice this from the picture but the glass is not very high and the flames sometimes go higher than the glass so you should have good clearance from nearby items.
We went into this purchase knowing this product would not be heating rooms. We didn't want it to. We got it for ambiance. We have a large screened in porch that fits this perfectly. On nice evenings we fire it up and sit, watch the river until the sun goes down. We really enjoy our fireplace. The gel cans are a little tricky, but if you use common sense, they won't be a problem.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
After reading the reviews, I knew the product was not huge in size. I also did not expect a lot of heat to be generated with it. That being said after looking at portable fireplaces for a while on multiple web sites, I finally took the leap with this and could not be happier. I had a visual in mind and to me this particular unit was bigger than what I had envisioned. It does not give off heat but it does provide ambiance which was what I wanted. The gel can do not last that long but they crackle nicely and help the atmosphere. I am very pleased with this purchase.
If you are looking for a fireplace to heat yor space then dont buy this one. I purchased this to mount on my front porch railing that I built for a fire effect to look at and this is perfect. The flames look nice when you are sitting outside so I am satisfied with the purchase for the intended use.
I am very interested in this item, but would like to know if it's waterproof? I would like this in my patio, but would like to know if i need to move it in and out from home during rain season?lc31573lc on Jul 2, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

I bought this item last year and it is metal so, yes, it is waterproof. However, metal and to much water don't usually go to well together so I would never leave out in the open to be rained on. It's small and light enough were moving it is not a hassel. Actually my 10yr old niece can pick it up and move it a good 10ft. by herself before she puts it down.octaurus on Jul 29, 2014

Can this fireplace be placed inside an existing fireplace with or without a flue?
Obviously some type of gas is emitted from a liquid substance. How does the science of where the fumes go work?twinbunksfortwinboys on Jan 9, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

1. Which type of fuel does this require (i.e. which gel product type, of which you sell two on Overstock, is required)?
2. In the product description, on the left, it states "No assembly required,", on the right, under Assembly, it states "Assembly required". Which is correct?
