Duraflame Portable Electric Stove Heater
Not worth it.
I purchased 2 of these. I used them for a few months as a supplemental heat and stored them when winter was over. Within a week into the next winter, one quit and almost caught my electrical socket on fire. Total working use was less than 90 days. The second one still works but I only use it while I'm awake and I check the socket regularly. I would never purchase one again. I only wish the first one would have quit before the 90 day trial period ended. I would give this product a zero if I could.
It Didn't Last a Year
Less than a year after I bought this "heater" first the "flame" stopped working, then the heat element. What a total waste !
Save your money
I purchased a duraflame stove heater with heat and flame. Used it for about 6 weeks last year and about 6 weeks this year. Only used for about 3 hours in evening about 5 nights a week. Heater and blower have STOPPED working. If you go to their website it says that they don't even make them.. A company named twin star makes them and if you have problems you contact them and not duraflame. Don't waste your money. Will not buy another. Duraflame product. Very disappointedly!!
Only one year
Bought this last year worked well until high heat went out, then on coldest day low went out. My room is 12x12 not quite enough for really cold nights.
Duraflame Heaters Don't Last Long!
I have purchased 3 Duraflame heaters (different models, sizes), but they do not last more than 12-13 months if you use them regularly. I love the fireplace heaters and the flames do make you feel so cozy, but to have to replace them every winter season (which we have done now for 3 winters), is just a bit crazy to me. When they do work, they work well; not a great deal of heat, but a nice addition for a chilly room. I just wish they would last longer than one winter season. Our 3rd one just quit on us last night and was purchased December, 2013 --- this one has lasted the longest, but we now have to replace it. We rely on extra space heaters as our home is over 100 years old and cold in winter. I would recommend these heaters if you enjoy the style, warm glow of flames and have no problem with replacing it each season.
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.
