Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dan VERY BAD EXPERIENCE
Because of shoddy manufacturing I can only get the pilot to light. Can turn the heat dial to get the burner to light up This product WILL be returned to Home Depot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AnnP Beautiful heater!
We love this look of this heater. It really is impressive in our yard. I too, like the other reviewers, would have to say though that it really does not generate a lot of heat. I think most of the heat goes out the top as opposed to the sides where people will be hovering for warmth. It would be great if it had some kind of deflector to push the heat down.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Looks nice but....
Product looks nice, but seem cheaply built. Top of base unit is flimsy sheet metal and bows enough with the weight of the glass unit above, therefore not allowing the door to open without pushing backward on the upper unit. Also came damaged with 4 broken rivets that hold the side sheet metal on the base unit. I have lit the unit briefly to make sure it works, but have not used it to see how much heat it really puts off. Other reviews I have read are that it does not put off great heat, just looks real nice. We will see. Also, the instruction are poor, very small, and very hard to read.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dong Happy wife..you know the rest.
Bought for my wife, she's always cold. She loves it. I guess I do too, I'm a big fan of fire and this think puts on a really cool "show". I located it on our back porch directly under a fan (the blades actually, as to not overheat the fan motor) and keep the fan on low. The heat is spread around to at least a 10' radius, makes all the difference on cold nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Very high quality outdoor patio piece
Very High Quality, comes packaged well, easy to assemble. (30-45 minutes). Although it does not put out the heat that the overhead umbrella type heaters put out, it's the flame effect that makes this piece a winner. Fit and finish are excellent! It's a heavy piece at 70 lbs. but easy to move around with the attached wheels. It will become the focal point of your outdoor living area. Make sure you have an extra propane bottle. On high, its goes pretty fast, 6-8 hours. Going to plumb ours up permanent to our big tank once we figure out the perfect spot. Bought ours when HD had on sale, but still pretty pricey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KenSF Once assembled, a very impressive outdoor heater
The product itself produces more "wow" than heat. My guests were blown away by the design,particularly the effect of the flame in glass. That said, the unit does not throw heat very far from the source, so if your intent is to heat a wide area, this might not be the product for you. I bought two of them for a party I was having --- one arrived with all parts intact, the second arrived with one defective piece (the threading on a support post did not match the insert) and with several other pieces missing, forcing me to run to a local hardware store so I could jerry-rig the assembly with an assortment of makeshift parts. It all worked in the end, but didn't leave me very happy with the manufacturer or with Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geefer Beautiful way to heat in cool weather
This is a great way to heat and get a nice visual to go with it. These are all over southern Europe at 3 time the price. good quality just take your time putting it together. Only negative is I would like an option to hook up directly to natural gas because it goes through a tank kind of fast. Flame puts off enough light to see everyone's face better than a fire pit and radiates heat over a larger area. I might buy another to go by my pool.
