Fuel for the (Gel) Fire from Buffalo, NY on 11/04/2014
I recently bought a gel fuel fireplace (from Wayfair , as well) and picked this up to go along with it. I burned just one can in the center of the fireplace and I loved it. It looked and crackled just like a real fireplace, and even gave off heat. It burned nicely for about 4 hours or so. My only complaint is the same as that of other reviewers... make it last longer! There are directions on the package about how to seal it back up, but in four hours, when the flame died down, there was nothing left to seal back up and burn at a later date. I also feel like it was quite pricey for how short it lasted. I'm fine if it isn't going to burn all day long, that's fine but then they should be cheaper. Also, I was worried as other reviewers had mentioned a bad smell. I literally sat right in front of the fireplace (small room) and the only time I noticed an odor was for a couple minutes right after I opened the can and lit it. And I as also expecting a smell from the fireplace since it was the first use and I didn't have any odor from that either. Overall, this is a great alternative to a wood burning stove, I just hope the company behind it can work on their formula to make it last longer. I also wish there was more variety to the flame, -I wonder if they could section off the inside into partitions and fill each section in different amounts to make more varied flames?

Excellent product, lowest price from Batavia, NY on 01/21/2015 – Verified Buyer
I wish I'd discovered alcohol gel fireplaces years ago. These things crackle and leap and behave very much like a real fire without the exhaust and waste problems. They burn for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or more, and three in my fireplace give off enough heat to warm a 20' x 16' livingroom 6-8 degrees. I LOVE these things. A sublime solution for apartment dwellers and for those not willing or able to afford structural changes to install vented alternatives. I do not notice any scent at all from the product when it is burning, and sometimes burn campfire-scented candles to supplement the ambiance. The product itself smells like rubbing alcohol, which I do not find offensive. As for the service, Wayfair is my new best friend. My original order of fireplace and fuel arrived on my porch within days of ordering during the holiday season (I had it in time for Christmas!) and my follow-up order for additional fuel was fulfilled just as promptly. The packaging was better than average. Very little to complain about, other than 1) Wish they were less expensive so I could have a fire more often! and 2) the cannisters are slightly difficult to open. Needle-nose pliars and patience seem the best way to get them open. I cannot speak to the different brands of alcohol gel fuel; I find that this brand is the least expensive and it suits me just fine.

Great product....easy to use. from KY on 01/27/2015 – Verified Buyer
Recently, I purchased a gel fuel fireplace and the Real Flame gel fuel. I have used the fuel a few times, and although the fireplace has 3 holes for the fuel cans, I have only used one can at a time. It provides a surprising amount of heat and is very easy to use. Just remember to remove the paper label. Each can burns for about 3 hours. There is a slight odor when the fuel is finished burning, but not bad at all. I am happy with the gel fuel, but the cost is too high to allow me to use as my main heat source. If it were less expensive, I would use it all the time. The cost is the reason I did not give 5 stars.

Adds amazing ambiance to our living room. from Virginia Beach, VA on 09/24/2015 – Verified Buyer
We purchased a gel fuel fireplace. The cans work amazingly well! It crackles and the flame is significantly big for such a small can. It makes the BEST option for those who want the fire effect in the home but don't want to pay the cost to install a gas line. Very happy! Pros: Makes a great flame and much better than electric fireplaces that are out there. Cons: A bit pricey for a pack of gel fuel. But much cheaper than installing an entire fuel line and vent to the structure of an existing home.

Worked as instructed from Puyallup, WA on 09/21/2014 – Verified Buyer
I bought this product in conjunction with ordering a gel fuel fireplace that will safely hold up to three burning cans at one time. So far I have used two cans at a time in my fireplace with flames of approx 8 to 10 inches wafting from each can consistantly and the added periodic snap crackle pop of a real wood fire. The two cans together were enough to knock off a fall evening chill without resorting to any other heat source in my living room and I really enjoyed the ambiance of being able to have a real fire going. There was a mild scent, but I did not find this inconsistant or any more powerful than could be expected with any live fire. I had no "chemical scent" sensitivity to the product.

Works well, will buy more from Lorena, TX on 01/07/2015 – Verified Buyer
Real flame was easy to light, the gel has a slight smell – like any alcohol – but burns clean with no odor. Lasts about as long as a full length movie, wish it lasted longer. The 3 cans our fireplace holds warmed the room incredibly well. We will probably only use 1-2 cans at a time from now on. I like the look of all 3 flames, but it is not necessary for heating. Once the can gets low it is useless to try to relight.

Very Good Product from Fort Worth, TX on 11/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
I ordered these last year , was very happy with this purchase . They are exactly as advertised, I ordered again this year and am looking forward to receiving them. They look just like a wood burning fire. I have recommended these to everyone , they crackle just like real fire and each can lasts 2-3 hours. GREAT PRODUCT!!!! Also delivery was very quick!!! Pros: Looks like real fire, actually puts off some heat Cons: None that I know of

Always use this product. from Parkville, MD on 11/16/2015 – Verified Buyer
I use to order this product from one of the online shopping shows but no more because Wayfair has a better price faster delivery and free shipping. The gel fuel cans keep my 15'×20' room so cozy with just one can. If I use two I can turn the heat down because it knocks the chill off the living room, dining room and upstairs. My house is about 2,000 sq. Ft and the rooms vary from 10'×13' to 15'×20'. Pros: keep rooms warm Cons: last about 1 1/2 to 2 hours

Gives good heat and no Smell!!! from Tewksbury, MA on 10/13/2015 – Verified Buyer
I tried a few different brands and this one is good, no smell while burning but when the flame burns out you will have a slight chemical sent like all the others. It does give off some good heat, you wouldn't heat your entire home but it does make the room it's in pretty toasty and a great crackling fire. Pros: Great fire and sound. Cons: I find it burns best when you give it a good shake before opening
