Fuel for the (Gel) Fire

from Buffalo, NY

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 – 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.

Worked as instructed

from Puyallup, WA – 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.

Great product....easy to use.

from KY – 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.

Almost like a real fireplace.

from Toms River, NJ – Verified Buyer

I have had a ventless fireplace for 5 years and have been using this product for about the same amount of time. I usually place 2 cans behind the ceramic log and the temperature in the living room usually increases by 5-8 degrees. It really puts out heat and crackles and pops just like a real fire. It is a great alternative to a wood burning fireplace but don't get me wrong, they are in no way the same, but if you are looking for a beautiful fire for ambiance and a little warmth, this will do the trick.

Looks Like the Real Thing

from MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Verified Buyer

I have purchased several cases over the last season for my Gel Flame Fireplace. I have been completely satisfied. Pros: Flames look real, and do crackle like a real fire. They also put off BTU's to help heat the room. Wayfair has the best price on the internet. Also, no odor when burning. I use 3 cans each time in my Fireplace. I have also used them poolside 1 in each of my pools waterfall fountains, really creates like a fire and ice effect. Cons: None what so ever. Would absolutely recommend to family and friends.

Love my gel fuel fireplace!

from Bend, OR – Verified Buyer

I own not one but two (one in livingroom one in MB) of the fireplaces that "run" on gel fuel. They have really improved the smell over the years (I have had mine about 8 yrs now). I had an electric one and it never even came close to warming the room like these gel cans. I use two in the living room because it is very open space and only one is needed in the bedroom and as long as I keep the door closed the room will stay warm until morning. They are so easy to use, clean up is nothing and whenever I move my fireplaces go with me.

Heat & Ambiance!

from Grand Junction, CO – Verified Buyer

This gel fuel is great. It really puts of heat while delivering a beautiful flame. I especially liked the crackling sound that came from these... just like a log fire! I will keep using these for my wall mount fireplace. I may even put a few on the concrete patio when we are out there in the evening for effect! Since we don't have children or pets anymore at home, I don't have to worry about accidents. Do be careful when buring these cans not in their fireplace holders, the cans get very, very hot. Worth every penny!

This fuel for the Gel Fireplaces does exactly what it says that it will do, Great product!!

from Laurel, DE – Verified Buyer

I have only burned one can at a time so far but the warmth from it is so nice and I am sure that 3 cans will more than heat my porch. I just love the crackling and popping sound of the fuel and the flame just looks so nice behind the concrete logs that also look so real. I am so very pleased with everything!! Pros: Love it. Cons: Maybe a can that could be longer burning, like 5 hours, which would be like a whole evening after supper.
