Rated 5 out of 5Â by thatch PERFECT FOR US
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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by UncleDave Product just as advertised
I have used the heater in my unheated basement on several occasions when I was working there. The basement is about 500 square feet and I have only used the heater on the lowest setting (20,000 BTU) as that has done the job. I got close to 20 hours of heat from the 20 pound tank. Just as a precaution I also installed two carbon monoxide detectors in two of the rooms just to be on the safe side. Since the stove burns at close to 98+% efficiency I do not anticipate any problem with normal operation.Â

Does all that is advertised and more. Use this to heat a 2 1/2 car garage, with 10 ft. ceiling. Will raise temp. from 35 to 70 in 2to 3 hrs. Love it !

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 4 out of 5Â 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.
