Very nice electric heater. The flames and logs look realistic. The size is perfect for a portable heater so I can have a "fireplace" in whichever room I choose. I love that it can be used with or without heat so it can be used all year round just for ambiance. This is a great alternative to using my real fireplace because I dont have to waste gas for hours and it just doesnt get that cold where I live in Sydney that often.
