the Duraflame Infrared Quartz Fireplace Stove doesn’t get hot to the touch like a real fireplace, so it’s completely safe for kids and pets to be around it.

One of the great features of the Duraflame Electric Fireplace is the Zone heating that not only saves you money by shutting off heated air in unoccupied space, but gives you the energy efficiency by reducing carbon footprint and playing a role for the environment.
- A Guide Pro
You have a choice of five different brightness settings, and the powerful infrared quartz heater can quickly heat up a small room, while maintaining the natural humidity in the room.
- Morning Chores
Duraflame have scraped that concept and have implemented a patent pending 3D flame effect technology that offers a full 270 degrees of viewing. The beveled glass and side viewing windows make the layered flames look even more like the real thing.

The nice thing about this electric fireplace is that it never gets hot to the touch. It works well to warm small rooms without making you worry about wood or smoke in the house.
- HVACify
Dura Flame offers patent pending three-dimensional flame effects. This offers a very realistic flame effect with glowing log, ember bed and flames.
- Cozy By The Fire
The patent pending 3D flame effect technology is outstanding. It looks so amazingly lifelike because the flames sit in front, between and behind the log set, creating a naturally layered appearance.

It has a lighter than usual weight and this means the electric fireplace heater is portable. At only 26-pounds, it can be moved to your patio as well if you feel the need to have guests.
- House and Tech
Utilizing infrared heat technology, this unit helps to maintain humidity in the air, which makes it more efficient.

What experts didn't like
Flimsy bottom
- A Guide Pro
Not enough heat for a medium sized room
- Morning Chores
The LCD display showing the timer and temperature settings is set behind the stove door, meaning you’ll have to get up and open the door to check it.

The fan can be loud
- HVACify
The main controls are located behind the the glass door that swings open in the lower right corner. Some buyers complained that they had to bend over to reach the controls and they were hard to read because they were not back-lit.
- Cozy By The Fire
The heater does have an irritating fan noise that many people might not like.
- House and Tech
The fan and rolling flame simulator can be a little bit noisy
