Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KennJG A Great Addition to Our Home
I decided to redecorate our home office/guestroom and was looking for a more lounge tasting room feel and this wall mounted gel fueled fireplace was just the right touch. It creates nice ambiance and fits seemlessly with our decor.
During the Summer and early Fall I have been using candles to keep the feeling of a lodge or lounge. Now that the nights are getting cooler the gel fuel (which is a bit pricey) is an excellent additon. The fuel actually crackles like a wood burning fireplace.
We are actully looking into another one perhaps for our master bedroom.
It would be nice if at least a starter set of fuel was included, but other than that I have no complaints. I'm looking forward to Winter evenings by the this fireplace with a nice glass of wine and some jazz...Now that's a guest room!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modified2003 Would recommend with disclaimer......
When I received it, I was very happy with how beautiful it was. I'm disabled, but I had no trouble lifting it and mounting it on the wall.
Here's the problem....If your going to by this for an extra heat source in an effort to fight off the rising oil costs,(like me) save your money for something else. Although the gel cans give off a substancial amount of heat (and I only used one at a time) they burn out quickly and are very expensive!
Now, that being said. If the cost of the unit alone is not a strain on your wallet, this is a GREAT item. What a great addition to a dining room, kitchen or even an enclosed porch! If you only use it occasionally, like when you have company, it's great....or, you can just use candles (much more cost effective, just not as much of a "Wow" factor).
It's made to be hung at picture height for two good reasons. Kids and animals! Like I said, I only used one gel can at a time and it was very warm!
I still have mine. I put it back in the box to return it, but if my finances level out, I just might keep it...I do love it.
