Such an easy way to get the feel of a real fireplace; it even crackles. We use it every year. Just a side note: towards the very end of burning it will have a smell and we just put the lid back on it to stop the remaining flames. Also, in my experience do not use it immediately after you get them. We found that if you do (perhaps because they come in from the cold or perhaps because the gel has been moved around so much in transport) it gives off a smell immediately. We usually wait a day or two before using.
I don't like to throw money away, so buying something to burn really goes against my instincts... However, my family lives in a home where there is no gas line for a fireplace and an electric "light-show" fireplace seemed too fake. We tried this stuff out and fell in love with it! It's a real flame, but it's safe in the home. It puts off heat and pops like a real burning log would, and all you have to do is throw away a can!
Love this in the in between seasons; before we light the coal stove but don't want to run the radiators. Also love the look during the holidays. It really does increase the temp in a fairly large 20 x 17 room by anywhere from 5-8 degrees with one can; well over 10-15 with 2 or 3. It doesn't smell until it goes out and even then you don't mind it. This years package doesn't crackle as much as product from a few years ago (green lable) but that's okay as it's more gentle and quiet now.
Never was thrilled with the work and mess , and attetion required when burning wood or wood like subsistues . The log insert with alternatyive fuel cartidges provides a beautiful glo adding a liitle warmth to the room but most important just a homy/cozy feeling to the room.
Ever since finding this product for use in my hanging, vent-less fireplace a couple of years ago, I simply will not use any other product. The Real Flame gel fuel gives you ample hours of use, provides a nice amount of ambient heat and offers a beautiful, flickering glow. I also really like the crackling and popping that this product generates making it look, feel and sound extraordinarily like a real, true fire without all the hassle, smoke, soot and clean up! You can almost 'feel' the ambiance (see photos). The only negative thing I can say about this product is that it is (and has always been) on little on the pricey side. That is true of ALL the gel fuel though, not only the Real Flame product line. Having said that, for as often as I have the opportunity to use it (since I live in a tropical climate), I still continue to purchase it. I usually scout the internet looking for the absolute cheapest price I can find (with FREE shipping) and this time around, it just happened to be the best deal at Walmart.com.
Living in a small house, I was very pleased to find a fireplace we could add to our decor. Little did we realize that with this Real Flame Gel how much it would heat our house. Sure makes for cozy winters.
This is some of the best fuel gel out there. It has no odor as it burns down which is a problem for a few of the other competitors. It warms our house up a few degrees and the furnace stays off for hours. Another pleasant side effect is that it seems every time we start one of a fire, my husband and son tend to fall asleep. I believe the crackling sound is very soothing and I truly get to enjoy the piece and quiet. Lol
THIS IS A GOOD PRODUCT. IT HEATS BETTER THAN I THOUGHT SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD.
THE FLAMES AND SOUND ARE NICE. THEY DO REMIND ME OF WHEN I HAD A REAL FIREPLACE(WOOD BURNING).
I had tried other gel fuel products. The Real Flame Gel burned longer and brighter than the other products I had previously used.
I bought my Real Flame fireplace about a year ago and the Real Flame Gel Fuel product is fantastic. I love the crackling noise, the flame is very realistic and in the winter it actually does throw off a good amount of heat. I highly recommend it.
If your looking for a reasonably priced option for a vent less fireplace in your home, this is it. I burn one can in a lantern I bought from a hobby store, and it gives off a foot high flame and generates enough heat to warm my front room by 10 degrees. Burning a can in the open creates a smaller flame. The burning gel does sound like a popping fireplace, but not as loud or as often as I might have liked. Its does burn cleanly without odor, plus cools off quickly after its finished for easy disposal. Overall; it does provide a real flame effect for any room in your home.
Real Flame Gels hold up against the wind; have no perceptible odor; virtually smoke-less and give a long and lasting flame. Great for fire pits and adding fire to water features, such as ponds and waterfalls. Definitely a do-over.
I have been buying this gel fuel from another retailer for years and years. I decided to "shop around" this season, and found the same product, less expensive, and with FREE SHIPPING! This box is heavy, so I would only purchase 1 each season, and wait for special occasions to use the product. Thanks so much for making this available to me. Less expensive, AND no shipping...it's a no brainer!
Over all, this is a good product. I wish it were less expensive. I also wish I could buy it locally and in small quantities than 24 cans. I like the crackling sound and the look of the fireplace with the flames is VERY realistic.
Clean burning. No problem with fumes or odors. I was surprised at the heat I felt. Can burns almost 3 hours.
I switched to Real Flame gel. This product exceeds my former product 100%. It burns longer....3 hours as opposed to 2 1/2 hrs, burns clean and scentless and burns all the way down to the bottom of the can. Walmart also offer the best price and if you catch it just right..............free shipping. I use a can a night so price is very important to me. So far........Walmart offers the best price.
These cans of flame are amazing. They crackle like a real fire does
This gel-fuel saves me a lot of money heating an all electric apartment. It really provides enough heat to be toasty warm. Must be used in a gel fireplace.
works ok,but 4 out of 24 cans did not burn all the way,leaving about 1" in the bottom unburned. i restured,but still would not burn
Good product. Walmart has the best price for the gel fuel for the fireplace. Great value.
