This is cool, or hot I guess you would say for this deal. Nice find.

This could be very cool for making s'mores without going camping.

Anyone know how long this burns? Or how much the refills cost? Can I use standard ethanol? Sorry lots of questions on this one, but it's really cool...Speaking of that how cool does the unit stay while it's burning?

...having visions of the cats lighting their tails on fire.......

Very neat but I wouldn't trust kids or pets around it, or even my clumsy wife.

@corypep: the seller they should be able to answer those questions. Here is the link: http://www.fashion4home.com/contacts

Thanks for the ref - really cool designs - they stil need to work a little on there site design, though ;-)

Very cool looking, but potentially dangerous...

Imagine if the thing got bumped? Ethanol alcohol isn't exactly an easy thing to put out, and with a wide open top on the "holder" like that, would spread very quickly if tipped over.

Extremely cool, but not safe; set it up high and out of the way of bumping.

It's enclosed in glass, I don't think they'd be selling it if it were as dangerous as you assume. They'd get sued very quickly.

Great deal...just ordered one! Thanks.

I didn't know this kind of product existed. That's fascinating.

@zalfrin: Look at the pictures on the site. It has glass panels on the sides, but the top and ends are wide open, as is the slot where the alcohol goes.

@femaster: Ever see that episode of "House" where Doc House is in the morgue practicing his flaming cocktail pouring and bumps the gurney?
Learned my lesson about alcohol and flames in High School Chemistry class. Also learned mascara melts.

Found a smaller tabletop version of this: http://www.furniturebutler.net/store/p/3084-Real-Flame-490-Mediterranean-Personal-Table-Top-Fireplace.html?gdftrk=gdfV2408_a_7c483_a_7c1954_a_7c490

The smaller one CAN be had cheaper. Received a catalog during holidays selling this for under 70 bucks but I'll be darned if I can remember who was selling it.

I wonder how well this would work on a patio in place of a fire pit?

tempted to get one till i saw:
"Free delivery to your doorstep within 12 weeks"
apparently these haven't even been manufactured yet. interesting business model, but i prefer instant gratification.

@lavikinga: I like that one. The concrete base would certainly help with keeping it upright should it get bumped, and the gel fuel isn't going to spill all over the place, even if it were to get knocked over. Certainly a safer alternative.

I'm not knocking the original item as it is extremely cool looking, and I definitely have a desire to purchase the item, unfortunately, with children and/or pets, it's definitely a no-go for me.

Ordered this on the 1/31, but it still has not shipped. Kind of sketchy.

@skeller3: Keep in mind that you product is currently manufactured. Only the direct to order model allows us give you such low prices.

Thanks,
