Fireplaces: Portable fireplace

Reviewed by:

Burning gel fuel, this fireplace needs no chimney, gas line, wood or electricity. It's rated at 100% efficiency with a maximum output of 9,000 BTUS.

The firebox and mantel are lightweight and portable, so you can play with your friend's minds by moving your fireplace to another wall when they leave the room.

This kit includes mantel, faux logs and screen kit. The burning of the gel fuel (which is primarily denatured alcohol) creates a flickering, yellow flame. One 13-ounce can provides flame for about 2.5 hours and a package of 12 cans costs $49.

  • The Savannah Fireplace is priced at $399 (September 2005).
