Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LDR1 Perfect small patio heater!
Needed something to sit on our patio table to heat us up during these winter months. It's a little larger than I had anticipated (should have looked at the specs), but it works just great for what we need.

My heater is on a table in my screened-in patio. It's warmth allows me to sit outside in the early morning and enjoy my Blue Jays.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalDan Works as expected, and looks nice.
Assembly was strait forward, and took less than 10 minutes while watching TV. The construction is about on par with what you'd expect. It's not heavy duty, but that's probably what's required to keep the weight down.
The heater takes a minute to start producing heat, however it works well once the mesh heats up. This is common amongst all units of this design though. Just be realistic about how much space you're going to heat with this. It works for keeping people warm while seated around a 6'x6' table, while it's 50 degrees outside.
My only complaint is that I could smell a little of the propane tracer gas, even though the unit was off. Not sure if it's the valve or the bottle fitting, but this little leak is easily solved by unscrewing the bottle when it's not in use.
All in all, I would buy this unit again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chuckstyr heats well but ices up and shuts down occasionally
I purchased 2 heaters to place in an outdoor room kind of like you would lamps. The heat is good but the 1.2 lb propane tanks occasionally ice up and the heater shuts down. I half expected this and was prepared to adapt the 2 heaters to run off a central 20 lb tank to prevent the icing. I read in other reviews before I purchased these that the 20 lb tank conversion is the remedy to icing and was prepared to do so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigt4u610 So far so good.
I've only used this heater a handful of times (so far) and it has worked flawlessly!! I seem to be getting a solid 3 hrs out of each tank full of propane. Despite the previous reviews as well as the item description... I am able to adjust the output a bit. Perfect unit for an intimate outdoor gathering on a cool evening, but the wasps like to climb inside and try to make nests in the base.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rthomp Last for 1 season
This worked great for only one season. Now with a new tank of gas using the converter to the larger tank it will not lite. Since it is made in China, there is no one to complain to. DON"T BUY IT!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TarriO Heats a covered patio well.
Bought a store display already put togetherand discounted for the season. I had to tighten a few bolts, but other than that, just hooked up a small propane tank. Heated the 10x7 covered patio well in 50°.
Decided to buy the adapter hose for the 20 lb tank. Never been disappointed. We enjoy the outside even more with a little help from the heater.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrvee great little heater
THE HEATER WAS VERY SIMPLE TO PUT TOGETHER. I THINK IT LOOKS REALLY NICE ON OUR PATIO. WE HAVE USED IT THREE TIMES SO FAR AND IT WORKS REALLY WELL. IT PUTS OUT A GOOD AMOUNT OF HEAT .PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW FAST THE GAS RUNS OUT THEY MIGHT HAVE A LEAK BECAUSE I'M STILL USING THE SAME 1lb.TANK. THINKING ABOUT BUYING ANOTHER ONE FOR THE OTHER SEATING AREA.
