Pros:
Wheels are the most useful part as the entire mantel piece rests on wheels that allow you to set up a fireplace anywhere in the house. Power consumption is also descent (1500 W) for the high heat it emits. Flame looks so real that it almost seems like you could burn your fingers going close to it. Very reasonably priced.

Cons:
Except for the tiny remote control that could easily slip under the couch or get hidden by a bunch of magazines, there are no cons to this product. A small unit to place the remote when not in use would be a great value addition.

Review

I always imagined what it would be like to have a fireplace without the fire logs and enjoy its warmth without the effort needed to clean the ash and the dust that settles around it. Duraflame Infrared electric rolling mantel piece is a true innovation that came to me a couple of years before. I ordered it through amazon and immediately loved the way it looked with its exquisite finish.

Since my living room has a low seating décor, I use it as a table top to place my Plasma TV. This is by far the most functional Remote controlproduct in the league of innovative products that have I ever used for heating. It warms up my room in minutes and does it very quietly that you wouldn’t even notice whether it is in operation or not!. Installation was quiet a charm and its usability is super convenient. All you need to do is set the temperature and flame the way you want. Remote control looks pretty compact and lets you operate the fireplace from your couch. The auto cut off thermostat ensures that the room doesn’t get too toasty.

One thing that interests me the most about this product is its portability. For a fireplace lover that I am, I always thought there could be no heaters or blowers that could replace the feeling a fireplace gives in a chilly winter night. And in most cases where innovation replaces the conventional, the essence of the original is lost. In this case, Duraflame has not just maintained the originality of a fireplace, but has features that add incredible value to it. The rollers for example- who could think that you could have a fireplace that moves around the house killing the chills as and when you want.

Overall Rating

Heating is very even and does not leave cold spots around the corners of the room. Needless to say, the blue spectra-fire flame effect looks quite fascinating and it’s quite safe for children and pets to play around. It is very rare to find a deal that has no major drawbacks and especially when the plus points are hugely contributing. Duraflame has proven its excellence once again in heating industry and I highly endorse this by rating this fireplace at 5 on 5.
