Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grandma Easy to use canned fuel
This product is easy to use and creates a nice glow and crackle, sounding like a real wood fire. It does not have the warmth of a wood fire...so it will not heat the whole room...but it produces a warmth that is cozy and comfortable. It gives off a slight odor when started..but the odor doesn't last long. Unfortunately neither does a can of this fuel. One can burns about 2 1/2 - 3 hrs. I purchased the 3 can insert and use 3 cans at a time. At the price of each can..it is upwards of $10.00 for 3 hrs of burning. Kind of steep, so I use it for special occasions only. The Holidays, when company comes over, and when it is really cold and snowy outside. Love the ambiance so I will keep using it. Just wish it was less expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tigerrdawn It's real flame, or nothing!!
I will use nothing other than Real flame gel fuel, it's safe, you can put it out when ever you're ready, no harsh smells, it crackles, it provides a beautiful fire, very realistic looking, easy to use, ignite & extinguish. Even better, no loss of heat due to a damper, it's very economical in that aspect. You are able to have that great ambiance when & wherever you choose. The only changes I would make is sell incense that smells like burning wood with it, or add it to the gel, and make it more economical, burn longer.
I wish it were easier to purchase locally.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn Love it!
This is such a great product! No smell, easy to use and the heat it produces is amazing. I also love the crackle. However, the only flaw is that each can doesn't last long. About 2 hours. It would be great if they could make a denser version of this so it could last about 4 hours instead of just two. I'm glad I got the 24 pack cause these will go fast. Other than that, great product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BeeJay Gel fuel cans add a nice touch.
I recently purchased a hanging gel fuel fireplace. The gel fuel cans are easy to use, remove label, shake, insert & light. A can lasts 2 - 2.5 hours. They provide a nice flame, the crackle sound is nice to listen to. The cans are a bit expensive.

Excellent fuel. High flames and spark sounds enhance the enjoyment of an indoor "fire."

I've used Real Flame since I purchased my fireplace 10 years ago. Will not use any other brand.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marcia64 Inconsistent burn
I can't complain too much about the cost, as it is challenging to find canned gel fuel inexpensively. However, out of each 3-can burn, I noticed that 2 of the 3 would only burn partially. You can scoop the unburned fuel out with a spoon once the cans cool and add it to the top of another new can, but I'd prefer not to have to do this. Don't forget to remove the paper label from the cans before placing in the fireplace. I'm not sure why the company makes much of the 'crackling' as it burns, as all that's necessary for that, is adding a little water to the gel when it is being mixed. It isn't special, and it's definitely not costly. I'm ambivalent about this brand. I will have to try some others, and see if the incomplete burn is typical for fuel gels, or if it is limited primarily to this brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaFayette The sterno cans produce a warm fire within the firelogs, I was hoping that you had liquid sterno in gallon bottles that could
I wish the sterno came in gallon containers so that the cans themselves could be re-used. I know that there must be liquid sterno available in gallon containers somewhere. It just seems wasteful to use new cans everytime you want to use the firelogs. I was hoping that the sterno would produce a little heat, but the glowing flames are quite pretty
