Got my little blue duraflame to put in the kitchen. Our other brand broke It puts out a good amount of heat. Have had it about 3 months and haven't had any problems with it at all. Love having the remote control to turn on/off. My cat really loves it and falls asleep in front of it everytime i turn it on. It fits perfectly in the space I needed it. The only assembly was to attach the legs. My husband did it with no problems. It's lightweight, and is made of some metal, some plastic. But it doesn't look cheap. It actually looks very darling. I have no problem recommending this product.
