SOLD OUT AND DISCONTINUED, SORRY 28" x 24" x 20.5"
The Arched Metal Franklin Stove features a nostalgic design with cast paw legs and decorative stovepipe. Includes oak-look double log.
Please note the words "decorative stovepipe." Remember your gel fuel produces no smoke so this is just a fake stovepipe that helps create the illusion... the pipe doesn't actually have a function beyond that.
No permanent installation or venting needed- set it against the wall, against wallpaper, even over carpet. Move it from room to room as desired.
Since there is no chimney or vent, you can only burn smokeless items-- gelled alcohol fuel, or candles if heat is not desired. Firebox is rated to 10,000 btu so it can handle up to three cans of fuel burning at once. Gel fuel throws off quite a lot of heat, but the fireplace is not designed as a heat source except in emergencies; it is primarily a beautiful decorative focal point for your room, with the added benefit of a fun real fire from time to time.
The gel fuel makes quite a nice big yellow flame, with realistic crackling sounds. The cans are well hidden behind the log. To turn off the flame, put the lid back on the can and save it to reuse later.
This fireplace ships in one box. Some assembly is required. Assembled weight is 80 pounds including painted concrete log. To move the fireplace from room to room simply remove the log first and then it's quite manageable.
Quality is quite good and we have never yet encountered an assembly problem in the store; but if there is an issue with a part, each piece is individually numbered and a replacement can be sent without having to return and reship the whole fireplace.
Price includes firebox, fireplace grate, stone log, and two free cans of fuel. Designed in America, manufactured in Guatemala.
Popular accessories include a magnetic tool that holds the lid and makes it easier to close the can when it's burning, a case of gel fuel, and a decorative branch candle holder.
