This fire was purchased to replace a gas fire. I wanted something that looked good, and could have the flame effect without the heat.
I was a bit sceptical about this fire due to some reviews I had read but I have to say I am delighted with it. I love the smoke/flame effect, it is so realistic.
Yes the water tank has to be filled often but so what, I consider it to be the same amount of effort as going and filling the kettle and making a brew.
We keep a bottle of filtered distilled water handy for refilling.
At first we noticed a small puddle appearing on the hearth but once we levelled the fire properly that stopped. The fire must be completely level otherwise you will get this happening.
Also the flame/smoke effect didn't seem to work correctly a couple of times, but then we realised that this was in fact due to the chimney not being completely sealed. Once we had accomplished this everything was working as it should.
I am glad I bought this fire, it makes for some cosy nights in front of the tv.
To be honest, the only thing missing is the crackling sound of a real fire.
Maybe Dimplex will eventually come up with something to add sounds to their fires too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by clare poor quality
We have only had this fire 3 weeks and the first cold snap it stops working will only stay on for 5 minutes and then switches off and cannot be turned on again for hours

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicky32 Looks real enough to me
Love this fire, had many comments on how real the flames look.. Has even bn mistaken for a gas fire, even though it's just steam!
