I live in a condo with a traditional wood fireplace and am not willing to go to the trouble of setting up and running it, cleaning it, and frankly worrying about the safety of it. I had considered converting to a gas fireplace but that would be extremely expensive and inconvenient. This is the PERFECT SOLUTION. So beautiful and easy to set up (it was running 10 minutes after it arrived). Plus the added benefits of retaining the value of a wood burning stove should I ever sell the home, plus being able to take this beauty with me. A year later and I still cannot get over the quality and beauty of this realistic, warm, reasonably priced fireplace insert. A winner!

We love the style of this heater...especially for our fireplace. We received it and notice a dent in front. We could live with the dent...if it works. We used it recently on the few cold days we had here in Texas...It Did Not warm our living area which is not very large... Not sure if we received a defect or damage item due to the dent...that won't prevent us from buying this brand again. We purchased a duraflame heater several years back from QVC. It still works and blows out very strong heat. I am sorry to say this is going back.

Definitely worth the price even if you only use it for the light.

I have COPD and can not tolerate our real fireplace any longer, but we so enjoy the ambience of a fire. Our solution was a faux fireplace insert. We found this product and it had several great reviews. We didn't want to spend a lot just in case it didn't fit our need and desire. The item arrived quickly and the installation was a snap, just place it in the fireplace and plug in. The remote control is great as is the heating element. Although our Christmas was an unusually warm one, we were still able to have our fireplace in operation, and my breathing works so much better. This turned out to be a great solution at an affordable price.

I bought this to replace the fireplace gel cans! I just couldn't take the smell in a closed room. With this its no problem, no smell. My hubby drilled a hole in the metal back cover and pulled the cord through it so it won't be seen, looks great and the flames reflect on the back cover behind it. The best part is there is no smell, no cans to buy, just use the remote! And its warm and cozy! Nice product!

I have been anxiously awaiting this to arrive since ordering! It finally came and I couldn't be happier. For the past few years the fireplace was never used and taped shut around the edges to keep the draft out. Now it's open again and this looks so real and makes my living warm and cozy. Love it!
I also ordered the extension cord as precaution but didn't end up needing it so back it goes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hockadoo So happy with my purchase!
Since moving into a rental property with a non-functional fireplace, I've been looking for an option for realistic electric fireplace. Most I've looked at were either really cheesy (the light bulb variety) or were several hundred dollars.
I knew I could trust the Duraflame brand, and I wasn't disappointed. Even without turning on the heating element, it gives my living room a warm and cozy feel!
As others have said, the cord is very short. While I didn't purchase the extension cord (i have the benefit of a family member that owns a hardware store), I'm using a a heavy duty extension cord (the kind intended for window air conditioners that plugs directly into the outlet).
