Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Heater for Workshop
I had considered several options for heating my workshop and I am happy that I decided on this one. It arrived in a timely manner, Home Depot had the best price I could find, very little assembly required, seems to be well made and best of all it works well. My shop is in an un-insulated 2 car garage and when the temp outside is in the high 30's to low 40's this unit will get it very comfortable within a half hour or so. I suspect that when it gets really cold it may not be adequate but that is not the fault of the unit and they do make bigger ones. The only fault I have noticed so far is that it seems to consume somewhat more gas than the specs would indicate, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PV2015 Extremely good heater
I bought this to heat the garage while working on my Jeep. It worked so well that we used it as our campfire when we went camping, everybody was stunned how well it worked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth84 Easy to start. Open consept/surround heat
I recently purchased this heater for a backup when the power goes out. In about a half hour on very low, my home went form 60 to 70 degrees. Nice investment. Purchased a guage to monitor the usage also.

Just received ours by delivery, bought online via Home Depot web site. Prompt Delivery and item well boxed and arrived safe. Easy set up, two screws, that's it. Directions a little vague, but hey - 2 screws.
Lit right away, just follow directions. I like the level of the burner, it's about level with your lap when your sitting in your favorite patio chair, and it throws the heat nicely. I like the match lite vs electronic, piezo's always seem to fail after a bit of use.
Cons- don't see any yet, but we have just started using it. Will be interested in performance in the wind, and on real chilly nights, but so far I am stoked.

Well packaged and easily mounts to tank. Would like to have seen connecting cables and wires bundled more compactly. But overall does put out the heat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Best Bottle Top Heater I have used
I use this in the garage. Working on projects, poker night with the guys, etc. I have had several dfferent models over the years and this one is the best hands down. if you have had a bottle top heater then you know that there is always one friend that steps in front of it bragging about how well it works & how good it feels on those cold nights/ days. Unfortunately this completely blocks the heat from everyone else.
This heater provides 360 degreee of radiant heat that allows 4 or 5 preople to stand around it at the same time. It will raise the temp in a full 2 car garage to a comfortable level. (It gets down to 28 degrees where I live) I have also used it outdoors on cold nights where a camp fire isn't practical. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is it is a bit thirsty. It will last about 6-7 hours on a 5 gal. propane tank (but that is on the highest of 3 settings). It also mounts securely to the top rim of the tank and does not rely on the heater to tank connection. I would by one again. If you are concerned about the quality, you can buy a 2 year warranty at the time of purhase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Great Heater, But check this area...
I purchased this heater to heat my garage and enclosed trailer, it does the job well but. When I took the heater out of the box and set it up, upon lighting it for the first time I discovered a problem. After going through 20-30 matches I decided to take the burner apart and look at the brass Jet the gas goes through. It was clogged with some white sealant that the manufacture used to seal the Jet from leaks. After cleaning the goo off the jet the heater lit the first time and I havent had any problems since. The mounts a little wobbly but If your looking for serious heat for smaller jobs, this is the best one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lash Lots of heat
This heater is being used in my integral three car garage in Western Pennsylvania. It raised the temperature twelve degrees in less than one hour. I found it easier to light by applying the match flame directly to the heater screen. I kept it on low and it pumped out a lot of heat. I was able to lower the heat, while in the low setting, by turning down the propane tank main valve a little. I have only had this unit a few days so I will report back with any problems.
