  • Love it!
    Verified Purchase

    I have a fireplace in a sitting room as you enter the master bedroom ensuite. The carpeting in these rooms is a very light off white and there is not a large hearth to the fireplace. This insert allows me to have the cozy ambience of a fire, to include the occasional crackle of flames, without any of the potential mess of ashes and soot, using convenient cans of gel fuel. It was an excellent purchase that I have enjoyed thoroughly!

  • Have had this nearly a year...
    Verified Purchase

    Worked great for us -- we have a rather large older brick fireplace that just burns wood way too hot for my nerves. I once had a cabin catch fire from a wood fire so I have been very frightened every time my husband would build a giant wood fire. Also when the logs would fall on the wood fire I couldn't always handle them myself if they were too heavy. Last year I installed this unit and declared it was perfect for us now because we could use it on "no-burn" or "spare the air" days when we aren't allowed to burn wood fires (which is often in Northern Calif in the winter). This was easy to use and is pretty enough that I doubt anybody would have a clue it's not real wood. Plus I love the color and no sparks!

  • Pretty cool.

    I would have given this 5 stars but directions were a little vague and one log came cracked but a replacement was sent. Just took them almost two weeks to get it to me.

  • Great product
    Verified Purchase

    If you want the ambience of a real fire without the mess and work, this product is beautiful. Itthe logs are heavy and ceramic. Very realistic. The grate is cast iron. Quick delivery, easy assembly. No smell at all. Only when you initially open the cans (sold separately ). Order them, you will not find them easily in stores. We love this..

  • Again, parts trouble, but lovely item
    Verified Purchase

    The item itself is decently made and not obnoxiously cheap looking or anything. We have some weird issue with the top cross logs really not laying down across bottom large logs in the way this is designed. When screwed tight, they kinda "hover" over the bottom front log which looks annoyingly weird. Thought about loosening the screws but they aren't long enough to allow for that... so just have to replace it with longer screws so you can pivot the top cross logs allowing them to rest on both bottom logs evenly (isntead of floating above the front one when secure). Had a top log broken on shipment, replacement was sent immediately from the manufacturer, no problems. Love service like that!

  • Logs fall apart
    Verified Purchase

    One of the logs was broken when it arrived. Overstock quickly replaced it, but now the others are cracking and falling apart.

  • Very attractive

    We have a non-working fireplace. These transform the space. Bonus - I placed a mirror in the back of the fireplace to reflect the flames and get double the effect!

    I love this! It was easy to assemble and it looks great in a fireplace that isn't used like it should be. It is the perfect size and it looks great.

  • Very nice.
    Verified Purchase

    Attaching the smaller logs is a bit fiddly because the bolts and predrilled holes did not quite line up especially on the third log. Otherwise it is an excellent product and looks surprisingly realistic.

  • We love it! arrived fast!
    Verified Purchase

    I needed something for my fireplace that I didn't want to burn actual wood in. I ordered the white 22" logs. Glad I ordered the large, the 18" would have looked too small in the fireplace. This arrived quickly within a week (Overstock is always fast), fair price, pretty easy to assemble. It is very heavy-duty construction, not cheaply made, and it is heavy, not light-weight. So assemble it near your fireplace so you don't have to carry it far. The logs are solid and heavy ceramic, and the grate is really sturdy like a true grate. I ordered a case of the gel cans at a good price too. Assembly was pretty easy, about 15 minutes with a Phillips-head screwdriver. One log screw didn't match up, but I worked around it. My only complaint, and seriously this is the only complaint, is when you stand right in front of the fire looking down, you can see the tops of the gel cans between the logs. Otherwise, sitting in the room or standing away from the fireplace, all you see is the flames. It looks identical to the pic. Very pretty and actually gives off a little heat. Someone reviewed that the logs turn black when burnt. Well, it is supposed to look realistic, and that's what happens to logs in a fire. They did turn a little black near the flames, but to me that only authenticates the look; otherwise, they would be too white and appear fake. Another reviewer said it smells funny. The gel gives off a rubbing alcohol smell at first, so I'm guessing that's what's burning in the get. Amazingly the gel does give off a crackling sound like burning wood - nice! I burned it for Thanksgiving dinner guests, and everyone thought it was beautiful and created great ambiance, with no odor. VERY PLEASED WITH MY PURCHASE!

  • Looks good, quality could be better.
    Verified Purchase

    Love the look of the fireplace, but they should let you know that the logs will turn black. Also, it can be tricky to put together as the logs can be difficult to screw in, but the most disappointing about this product is the lever to raise the logs. It was loose when it arrived and did not hold up the logs and it actually broke when I tried to use it to raise the logs to replace the gel cans. Thought I would be getting a better quality product for the money.

  • Real flame logs
    Verified Purchase

    I actually love this product and gave it 4 stars because after the first use, the logs no longer look clean. There are black burn areas along the sides of the logs which only affects the aesthetics of the product and not it's functionality. If only my husband and I are enjoying the fire, I leave the logs in the upright position to prevent further scorching of the logs. My friends love it and are jealous that I had an older wood fireplace that is now safe and enjoyable to use. I would recommend as an alternative to a wood or gas fireplace. There is no mess, minimal odor, very little heat discharged and lots of ambiance.

  • A good alternative to real fireplace logs.
    Verified Purchase

    I have used these logs once since I bought them. They do give off heat, when used with the gel fuel recommended. They look realistic, and fit well in the fireplace. The assembly was a bit difficult. Some of the screws to attach the logs to the lift handle were hard to put in. I would still recommend the product.

  • GREAT BUY!!!
    Verified Purchase

    This is unbelievably realistic. It really looks like real wood and a real fire. There is even a crackling noise. My best friend came over and asked if the wood was real. It is a great deal, and you will not be disappointed. It puts out heat, too! I cannot say enough positive things about this product. It's great!

  • Great alternative to a wood fire.
    Verified Purchase

    We are very happy with this log set. We stopped using our wood-burning fireplace because I am sensative to smoke, and hated losing all of our house heat up the flu every time we had a fire. But I missed the coziness and ambience of a fire burning in our living room. I looked at a gas conversion, but it was pricey and we still wanted the option of having a log fire. I also looked at electrical fake fires, but they just don't cut it. I read lots of reviews and they all seemed positive, so we bought a set. We decided to get the larger (24 inch) set which was inexplicably cheaper than the 18 inch set. It takes 3 gel cans, which may be why it is less popular, but we actually like it better because it gives you the flexibility of using 1, 2 or 3 cans. Because it has 3 spaces for the flame, when you use only one gel can, it has a very nice flame in the middle, which is enough to give the appearance of a cozy little fire. With the 3 cans it makes a bigger fire display which is nice when you want it to look more like a roaring fire. This is flexibility that the 18 inch, with only 2 spaces for flame doesn't have (it wouldn't look right to me to have flame only on one side). The set was easy to put together, except for the screw hole machining which wasn't quite accurate enough. We had to struggle to get 2 of the small logs screwed into place. But once in, it looks and works great. Despite what I read in some reviews, there is absolutely NO smell. And I am extremely scent and smoke sensitive, so I was a bit worried. I can smell nothing at all when the gel flame is burning (what a relief) until it reaches the very end of the can. Then it has a faint odor briefly. I think they improved the fuel and some earlier reviews may have been users of earlier types. Also, if you forget to take off the label, I suppose it is possible the label might have a smell if it burns. I LOVE the crackling sound - it really creates the illusion that there is a real wood fire. And the flame is very irregular and also looks like a real wood flame - better than some gas fireplace flames. I think if they could find a way to cover the tops of the cans a bit more (you can see them if you are standing over the log set) you would really assume this is a wood fire unless you look closely. We are very please with it!
