That is a quote today from my husband who didn’t want me to buy this fireplace in the first place. He would show me other fireplaces when we were out shopping. but I kept insisting on this one. We have had it about a week now and we absolutely love it! From the day we ordered it, throughout the set up and whenever questions would arise, Howard is always available to help. The wood and the workmanship on the mantel is some of the best we have seen. The heater is more than we hoped for and makes our living room nice and toasty. We have no worries about leaving a “real” fire going if we fall asleep Actually, the only negative is that it is so relaxing and peaceful, that we fall asleep. We wouldn’t trade our Magikflame for anything!
