Best electric fireplace for the money! I love the simplicity of this fireplace. It doesn't have a million different settings to get lost in and the settings it does have are the perfect touch. I visited a local retailer looking for a good brand electric fireplace that didn't break my bank account and that looked real and had some depth. This met my expectations and then some!

Love this electric fireplace! I did not expect to love an electric fireplace as much as I do! I use it regularly, sometimes with the built-in heater, but often just for the ambiance. It is very soothing and looks like a real fire is burning, but with the convenience of an on and off switch! I love it!
