Duraflame Portable Electric Stove Heater
soryy to have bought it
I bought this for husband to use in a 400 hundred foot garage in the basement. It would only heat it up 5 degrees. the heaters we buy at the store for a lot less does a lot better job. you would be nice and toasty. Do not recommend this for heat.
Great While it worked
I have purchased3 one each year I have really liked all of them but they have all quit working NO HEAT and no fan I will miss them but will not buy again Have wasted over 400

I purchased this heater 2 winters ago. It worked fine but last year the heater stopped working and the guarantee was up so had to get rid of it. I'm afraid to buy another one. It was fine while it was working. I'll wait to see reviews but had to buy another brand. They don't seem to stand behind the product.
Looks and works great
I love this heater that looks like a french stove for heating. Works great and uses very little electricity. I see some people are disappointed in this item. My suggestion is the following: buy a good quality surge protector, not the lowest end. In my house I have discovered that I must have surge protectors. All my computer equipment and printers are on a surge protector. I have another surge protector for my TV, cable box, DVD Player AND MY DURAFLAME Electric Stove. No problems so far. Used it all winter 2013.
Worst Purchase ever Made
I purchased a Duraflame Heater 2 yrs.Ago.I had one Problem just 6mos.after I got it.I called Twin Star and They sent me the part to put on myself.Then in January of this year the Motor goes out,again they sent me the Part to install.WHO DOES THAT????? So I then Called and spoke to a Rep.He then Informed me Whatever the problem may be Duraflame will NEVER replace the unit. I'm sorry they are that kind of Company. I was Deeply Disappointed in them. I will Not recommend this Item to anyone.Although,while it did work it was GREAT,It kept my whole House warm and Cozy.
I bought this in 2011. It was so cute and I had a space for it under one of my bedroom windows. It was the perfect space. So, this is my third season starting to use it. so far it works like a charm. I love it, it heats up quickly and keeps my room nice and toasty especially on real cold days, which we don't get a lot of in California. my bedroom is probably 10ft x 11ft, so its not big, just perfect for this heater. I love it, it works great, so, If it goes out, I will buy another one. I got the black, because I have a lot of accents that are black in my room, plus my tv is black. so, I have had no problems with it so far.
I purchased this to use in my 5 room, 720 sq.ft. Home. I have been pleasantly surprised. It has been as low as 35 at night and my home stays around 65-68 degrees, and doesn't even run constantly. It is a very quiet unit, not as loud as having a fan running in the summer. Loved that all I had to do was take it out of the box, pull off a couple of pieces of tape, and plug it in. And, of course, love Easy Pay.
Two Years and Heater Died
Welp, it was nice while it lasted. I purchased this from QVC in October 2011. It was a great addition to our living room. I was well aware of others problems and knew ours could die any day. Yep, today was that day. Went to turn it on this morning and the flames work, but no heat. Tried unplugging it, but that didn't work. It's done. It's now just a light show and that isn''t helping our cool house. I'll buy another one, but not a Duraflame. Pathetic.
So far the unit smells a little when I turn it on but it did a great job heating my bathroom. I'm not so sure about how much space it could really heat. It is small - on TV it looked much bigger. I'm very proud of how my bathroom looks and this was an excellent addition for not only looks but the great heat it throws off during my shower. It heats the room very fast and I have it on a low setting. When company comes I just have the flames turned on. Let me just say again it is smaller than I expected - maybe reached my knees and I am short.
I purchased this last March for my daughter's birthday gift. She lives in a mobile home and it is perfect for heating the room without taking up a big space. She loves it! Actually, I love it too! I put it together at my house (super easy) and tried it out for a couple of weeks to make sure all was ok. The remote is very convenient and after "testing it out", I want one too.
We purchased two last winter and they work great.
Tonight is in the low 40's and we have the one in our family room on and are plenty warm and the flames look so real Our heat can be turned down six degrees when we watch TV during the evening. We have one in red and one in black and the colors are very rich looking.
We have two fireplaces and between getting both cleaned yearly, buying several cords of wood, a large case of fat wood (not counting putting two custom made liners and caps on top of the chimneys) we will be saving several thousand dollars in a four year time span!
Fails after warranty runs out!
I have the same problem as another customer. I've had this a couple years. Turned it on last year and...NO HEAT! Of course it happened right after the warranty ran out. I'm very disappointed. If you're going for the look of it, then you'll be happy but the looks alone won't keep you warm! I called the company and they said there's nothing they can do. So much for standing behind your product.
