      I like this product- Pros: no smell, easy to ignite, and safe. Cons: doesn’t last us very long at all. We will burn up all three cans in our fireplace in about 4 or 5 hours. So basically in one day

      I prefer to have a real fire place, however do not have an exhaust method built into my home, so opted for one of these real flame fire places. I turned to Overstock for supplies, and once again, Overstock delivers on their promise. The product is amazing and better than described. The shipping was free and super fast. The quality of the product is amazing and the price is unbelievably low.

      I enjoy the real flame and the sound it makes. Theses cans really do throw off the heat too. For my small bedroom I only light one can at a time otherwise it gets too warm. I have noticed that so far I have not had a can last quite 3 hours even though they say they should last 3 to 3.5. I always stir the gel before use, this does help make sure all the gel burns down evenly, which gives it a little more time. I enjoy this product but it is a bit expensive for the length of time of the flame. The cans also have a one year self life so plan ahead!

      Verified Purchase

      One downside to gel fuel fireplaces is the cost of the gel, not to mention finding it. Having exhausted local possibilities, I trawled the net and found these guys. Realflame does a good flame: very tall and bright, with the occasional crack and pop for effect. Most of the cans I've tried so far come in around the three hour mark, too, so that works out very well. All in all, a good value.

      At the price charged for 16 cans, one would be foolish, not to make the purchase.

      I've been using this product for years, so nothing new to say about that. I continue to find this product is a good value for the money & makes a nice fire in my "fireplace". It's really nice to have a fire on a cold, windy winter nights. What was really great was the great value for the gel. I search this product each year for good prices & this was the best by far. Also impressive was the fast shipping. It was a pleasure to do business with overstock.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I'm reading that each can lasts for three hours. What if you want a fire for an hour or two? I feel silly asking, but what do you do?"

      • A:

        Keep the cap and just cover it when you are done. You don't have to use the whole can all at once.

      • A:

        They are right, they last exactly 3 hours on the dot every time. What I did was put the lids back on the cans and it puts the fire out. You can't reuse them though.

      • A:

        When I have this situation……………with tongs or a safe tool of some kind, carefully place the lid back (completing covering) on the lit can. This should extinguish the fire and allow future use.

      • A:

        Exactly as Kristen said...simply put the top back on. also... if you want it to burn a little longer, there's room in the can to pour a little more in which gives it about another 40 minutes-ish

      • A:

        Put the lid back on the can, it will smother the fire :) I have the opener with a magnet on the end so I can easily put it out without burning myself.

      • A:

        I bought an extinguisher for about $* that is easy and efficient. It is a metal disk attached through a floating hinge to a long handle. You just position the disk down onto the top of the can and the fire is instantly doused. Easy-peasy. And the fuel doesn't leave any messy residue on the disk because there is no smoke with the alcohol gel.

    • Q:

      "I have a fire pit that uses propane and indoor fireplace that has a gas pipe to light wood, can this be used in either one?"

      • A:

        No, the gel fuel is engineered and approved for use with Real Flame approved products only. Using it with any other product can result in serious injury, property damage or death.

    • Q:

      "What is the shelf life for this product? It may take some time to use all 16."

      • A:

        Hmmm. I guess I've never thought about it because I've used gel fuel for the last 3 - 4 years & always have some leftover once the cold months are past. I get it back out the next fall & it always lights right up & behaves like it did the year before. So, in my unscientific opinion, I'd say it lasts at least from one winter to the next. Hope this helps. Btw, I love this stuff! I was just getting ready to order another case.

    • Q:

      "Can this be used in an outdoor fire pit?"

      • A:

        Yes this can be used in a outdoor fire pit.

    • Q:

      "Can these be used freestanding for a heat source or do they need to be only used inside a "fireplace?""

      • A:

        Hello Elisabeth D., they are designed to be used in Real Flame approved products only. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Q:

      "Most candles bother me, Is it possible the gel flames could do the same? Any chemical smell or smoke in the air that can cause headaches or irritate eyes?"

      • A:

        Hello Annette C., this is a clean burning gel, you should not have any issues with irritants like candles. Thanks for shopping with us!

      • A:

        If you are sensitive, do not get them. I am not sensitive at all to smells, but these smell horribly! I also woke up with a headache and sore throat.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        because I bought 2 wall fireplaces from Overstock and that is what they use

      • A:

        Because when I was buying the entertainment center there was a little advertisment below saying what people usually bought together. Scared of individualism and at the same time not knowing if the entertainment stand fire place used other brands I just purchased this brand of fire gel.

      • A:

        to use with outdoor fire pit

      • A:

        it was extremely a good deal and necessary

      • A:

        I purchased the real flame fire log set that needs these gel fuel for my outdoor fire pit. I cannot find the gel fuel in any local stores.

      • A:

        need to try it out

      • A:

        Great price

      • A:

        It was what I was looking for

      • A:

      • A:

        I recently had purchased the glass fireplace but was under the impression that the fuel was provided.(sample can) and I wasn't sure if I could use any other manufacturers product.

      • A:

        Highly rated. Best reviews.

      • A:

        Need extra heat for condo

      • A:

        Easier then having to go out and buying it later.

      • A:

        We have used it in the past. Just re-stocking.

      • A:

        I have a real life fireplace

      • A:

    • Q:

      "I have an outdoor fireplace purchased from Restoration Hardware which requires me to pour the gel into a repository. Are these cans the right product to buy? I used to buy them in larger plastic squeeze bottles but can no longer find that product. Thanks!"

      • A:

        these are a little iffy. They came partially dried out and for the price this is not acceptable.

    • Q:

      "Do you need any kind of ventilation with this product, if you plan on using it in a relatively small bedroom?"

      • A:

        Hello DragonWolf, there is no certain amount of ventilation required for this fuel because it is clean burning. Thank you for shopping with us!

      • A:

        No ventilation needed. It gives off a faint alcohol smell when first lit, but that goes away quickly. Gives off a small amount of heat.

    • Q:

      "Can you roast hot dogs or marshmallows in this type of fuel?"

      • A:

        Great question susiemey06. No, we do not suggest roasting, cooking or reheating any food product with Real Flame 13-oz Gel Fuel. It is just not safe or made for that. Have a great day.

      • A:

        i do not think so.

      • A:

        I wouldn't. There is a smell to the fuel burning, although slight.

        No!!!! This is not for cooking, it is to enjoy having the ambiance of a fireplace!

    • Q:

      "Can a can be reused if its not burned for its full entirety?"

      • A:

        Yes, you can put the lid back on the can with the special tool that is available if you want to douse the flame, and reuse it later if there is fuel left in the can.

      • A:

        Thank you for your question. The Real Flame 13-oz Gel Fuel, can be snuffed out and then relit when ready for next use. We do suggest to stir the fuel before relighting.

      • A:

        I don't have the snuffing tool myself, but found that using my extra-long pliers to bring the lid over the can does the job just fine.

      • A:

        Yes, you can reuse it. I have. Just stir it and relite!
