Real Flame Porter Fireplace in White Finish

I decided to order this fireplace after seeing the many positive reviews from people who had made purchases. I really needed a fireplace and I felt like this one would serve my needs quite well. I must say that I was not disappointed. It is far much better that I expected and it actually looks better in my living room that in the picture. I would highly recommend this fireplace to anyone. It is just perfect.

This fireplace looks very realistic. It has a way in which it brings the old-fashioned hearth into the modern context to fit into today’s contemporary world. It has a clean-burning flame that is very safe. It produces adequate heat that is capable of feeling my house with great warmth even on the chilliest evenings and nights. It constantly keeps my house cozy and homey. 

Just as I had read from a previous review it is true that the gel burns very easily and it leaves absolutely no mess to be cleaned up afterwards. There are no ashes, soot or smoke and this helps to maintain the cleanliness of my house. I am such a clean freak and I can only imagine how much time I would be using to clean up, time that I now just use to write articles for my food blog while enjoying the colorful flames from my fireplace. The fire exactly resembles an ordinary log fire by its bright orange, yellow and red flame. It crackles too making me love it even more.

I was a little worried about the gel because no one had written about how it works. It easily burns away slowly and lasts long enough; usually between two and a half to three hours. When I am not interested in letting it burn for so long, like on evenings when I just need to warm up my house a little, I simply put out the flame and replace the cap on the fire gel can. This helps me save it for later use.

When my package arrived, I immediately got to work. I wanted to put it together and try it; I really wanted to see it at work. It took me less than an hour to assemble because it did not have so much work. I am a woman in my late thirties and I found it very easy to build. The instructions were very precise and clear and I really enjoyed the whole process.

Now I am searching for fire pit for my patio. Does anyone here to share his or her experience. I found this article on Best Fire Pit. But I am little confused which one should I choose.
