    You can tell it's fake when it's off, but when it's on we love it. This vs. $1000 plus for a gas mechanism, this was the obvious choice. It glows nicely and adds nice ambience. We would recommend it, especially for the price.

    This is a great insert for the fireplace. It looks real and it gives off heat. It comes with a remote and we enjoy it so much in the winter. Ours is now 3 or 4 years old and still works like a charm!

  • Heater for Electric Flame Fireplace Insert
    Verified Purchase

    Did not use this insert right away after purchase. When we did get to use it the heater fan never worked. Very unsatisfied with product.

  • pretty good
    Verified Purchase

    I have a small room with a fire place and I wasn't sure if I wanted to convert to gas. I decided to try the electric insert. I am pretty happy with it. It is obviously not a real fire but it is kind of nice to look at. It also does heat the room pretty well.

  • Amazing Looks So Real
    Verified Purchase

    I have only had the Dimplex insert for a few weeks, but have enjoyed it every night using it without the heat still to warm to use it, but I still am amazed how real the dancing fire and glowing embers look like a real fire, I use to have a real fireplace and believe me this is so much better no messy ashes to clean up or smoke coming in the house from the wind change direction. I absolutely Love this insert, turn on & off with the remote and sit back and enjoy the fire it mesmerizes me. The heater part is very efficient and cozy making the fire even more lifelike. I did use it one chilly night. Very quite. Everyone can't believe it isn't real. I can't say enough about it. I am so glad after lots of comparing inserts I chose this one, again I Love It!.

    I love this thing!!! I live in Texas and have a beautiful fireplace but it doesn't really get cold enough for a long enough period of time to make a real fire and stink up the house. This puts out just enough heat to keep the family room warm with just a little assistance of the central heat.

  • Nice product for the price
    Verified Purchase

    I was really surprised at how realistic this looks and it puts off a good amount of heat. It was easy to install, just take out of the box, place in the opening and plug it in. I also like having the remote because I have this in my bedroom and I can turn it off and on without having to get out of bed. I recommend it.

  • Good for Decorative Effect
    Verified Purchase

    After a months use, my opinion is that this unit is good for its decorative effect in creating the atmosphere of a burning fireplace; but not very effective as a heat source.
