Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Heater!!! Purchased a similar heater from a different manufacturer last year and had to return it after 2 days of operation due to fumes. Purchased this heater from my local Home Depot with the thinking that if Home Depot was selling it, it had to be the real deal. After several days of operation, I can find no fault with this heater. Sturdy construction, easy to assemble and operate, and wonderful heat for our 1300 sq ft apartment. Heater burns for about 10-12 hours for each tank of fuel. With respect to performance and heat output, this heater reminds me of the old Toyostove heaters from the 1980s-90s. Thanks to Home Depot for a great product at a great price. If you are thinking about getting one, you had better hurry. My store only had 2 units left and Winter is only beginning. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great money saver for heating only one room, instead of the whole house!! I have used several of these over the years. I find that I can set the home thermometer lower, and light the kerosene heater and stay toasty in the room where I am. Just GREAT in the AM & I don't have to use the furnace to be comfortable when I get out of bed. I wouldn't be without one in the Ohio winters. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great heater, great value I bought this originally for my garage to do work in the winter, but found I needed it in my house during an ice storm. I was out of power for days and this heater heated up my 1700 square foot house with no problem on low heat setting. It took about 12 hours to use 1 tank of fuel on low setting. It cost me about 6-7 dollars a day to run for those few days during the ice storm. The fumes were minimal. The fumes were stronger when I got close to the end on my tank of fuel. I just opened a window about 2 inches to keep it ventilated because my house is pretty air tight. I used a k-1 cleaner mix in my fuel which also helped keep the fumes to a minimal, that cost me around 7 dollars and will last you atleast a month or more of continuous use. I would reccommend this heater to anyone. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth it! Chicago is 5 degrees, no heat in house. Running this heater for the last 3 days. House is 70 degrees. This will run for 13 - 15 hours on a tank. I do have it set a bit lower but 1100sq house is toasty until furnace is fixed. There is a slight kerosene odor after filling tank but great for any emergency. December 11, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by A little disappointed... I would recommend this product with the following caveats: 1) Auto light feature doesn't work and the Instruction manual does not address the issue which is the heating element/starter does not come close enough to the wick. I guess I can tear it all apart and "adjust" but one would think that it SHOULD work out of the box. 2) There is a fairly strong smell of kerosene while operating; the best K-1 kerosene money can buy, flame adjusted as recommended, burner centered and a fresh air supply (window open). It does heat my garage... but it would have to be the worst of emergencies before I would bring it into my house. Quality of materials is good and it assembles easily. December 10, 2014
