Customer Reviews

31 in. Compact Electric Fireplace in Cherry-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to Our Home! This fireplace is a beautiful piece of furniture for our home. It is certainly the best in its price range, and a very good value for the money. The flame is realistic and has good depth. The controls are readily accessible and easy to use. The heater really does put out a LOT of heat, so it's good that there is a temperature control. It did take a couple of tedious hours to assemble, but the finished product is worth the time spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I ended up purchasing this electric Fireplace because the one that I originally picked out was sold out. I am so glad that it was because this one is much nicer and it was $10 less! It works great, and it looks great. It looks bigger than it is because the mantle is tall. It fits perfectly in my mother-in-law's small living room. She loves it. I am very happy with the value of this fireplace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the price! I absolutely love the way this fireplace fits in my living room. It is not big and bulky like others I have come across. It works great! The fire simulation is very relaxing to watch and completes the cozy feel in my livingroom wonderfully. Color was a tad bit darker than pictured but it still went well with my decor so I was ok with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric fireplace in cherry We ordered this a few months ago. We wanted something to put in our basement to take the chill out the of air. We love it! Heats the whole basement nicely, looks nice, and isn't loud. I don't think my husband had any trouble putting it together either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, but looks good and works well Was packaged well, arrived in perfect condition. Put it together in under an hour, only had a tiny issue when installing the fireplace unit into the frame (because I didn't read the instructions). I painted mine off white to match kitchen cabinets (installed in breakfast nook), paint didn't like the veneer finish too much even after scuffing and using a for plastic paint. Haven't really used the heater function since its summer, but the fake fire looks nice, 2 year was very impressed. Can't do better for the price, but do check dimensions, this is a very small unit (bigger than most in the price range, but still quite small).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little fireplace.....but small This is a great product for the $$. It works great and really heats up the room quickly. It's on the small side but for the money, I'd buy it again. We use this heater daily and it's great for early mornings and in-between-seasons. We used it late summer/early fall for a little extra warmth during the period when it was too soon to use our heat pump full time. It's also great when we've had the front door open for a bit....carrying in packages/groceries, to heat the livingroom & kitchen back up quickly. Not real wood but I wasn't expecting a heirloom piece. For the price (around $80 end of season clearence) you just can't beat it. I've seen some lately in stores that weren't any nicer for $190-$220.
