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.

Heat & Ambiance! from Grand Junction, CO on 10/20/2014 – 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!

Great Purchase from LINCOLN, IL on 10/30/2014 – Verified Buyer
We purchased this gel fuel to go with our Real Flame Gel Fuel Fireplace and are happy so far! Have only burned it for a short period of time as we just received it but no problems to date. It does give off a crackling sound when burning so adds to the ambiance of the fireplace and puts off enough heat to warm a small room. It is a little more expensive from Wayfair and you can find it cheaper on other sites.

GREAT HEAT from Smyrna, GA on 11/04/2014 – Verified Buyer
I like the Real Flame product a lot. It is easy to use, no mess, no fuss. I purchased a Real Flame gel fuel fireplace and I absolutely love it. The advantages of the Real Flame product is that it can be extinguished after a short usage and restarted later. Some fuel cans cannot. There is a mild odor when using the product new, but that quickly fades. At 3,000 BTUs per hour and nearly a 4 hour burn time, it is great for fun or a temporary alternative ventless heat source.

Good Product from Northvale, NJ on 01/05/2014 – Verified Buyer
This is a good gel fuel. It has a nice size flame, decent crackle sound and it lasts as expected - about 3 to 3 12 hours per can. The only thing I don't like is a little bit of an odor when the last of the can is being burned. This is usually the last 15 minutes or so. Sometimes I extinguish the flames when I start to smell that. I often light a candle or incense when I burn these and that helps a lot with any odor. We have tried other brands of gel fuel and noticed the same thing in regards to the odor when the last of the can is being burned. I have found Wayfair and this brand to be the best value in gel fuel. I would not hesitate to purchase again.
