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?

I purchased a case of 24, before I noted that the fuel only lasts a year; I will need to use the fuel in my fireplace eight times (3 cans each time) in another six months. Additionally, the case was actually short one can. Others have commented on the odor. It's more of an isopropyl alcohol smell, but not as noticeable while the fuel is burning. When first lit, the flames are about 6 to 8 inches above the container, three cans at once makes for the best visual experience. The fuel does crackle, which I find to be a nice feature. Also, when burning all three cans in my fireplace, the temperature in my house goes from 65 to 75 degrees. The fuel lasts somewhere between 2.5 and 3 hours, but after half that time the flames diminish in height; in the last hour the flames are almost gone but the fuel is still burning and producing heat. The fire ambiance is much better than an electric fireplace, and only slightly less than a propane/natural gas fireplace.

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.

Exaggerated complaints

from Bella Vista, AR on 01/22/2016 – Verified Buyer

I bought a gel-fire place for my condo. I really like it, however, the reviews warning about the slight odor coming from the gel are realistic. I followed one reviewer's suggestion to open the canister and let it air outside for a bit before lighting, and that does help, but still, a very slight chemical odor does exist while burning. If you are terribly sensitive to odors, this would not be a good product for you.

Pros: Great ambiance builder, burns cleanly, lasts 3-4 hours per canister, easy to use
Cons: leaves a slight chemical odor while burning

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

I have used this product for years with my Real Flame Corner fireplace. It adds warmth and the effect of a real fire complete with the sound of crackling wood. Perfect for my home which is very small. The fuel is a bit expensive - I use two cans for every fire, so I only have a fire when I want to cozy up with a good book on a wintry day. Usually lasts about 3 hours. Slight odor when cans get low, but other than that it's a great alternative to a real fireplace and a "real" fire. Not as easy as an electric fireplace, but much more realistic and fun!
