    3.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Looks - But Don't Expect to Sweat! 15 Jan 2012
    Verified Purchase
    My flue was condemned by a gas engineer so I had to replace my gas fire with an electric one.

    This fire looks lovely and gives a warm cosy feel to the lounge. In terms of heat however, this is a 2kw electric fan heater with a pretty surround. It blows warm air from the vents in the top, but I would not describe it as especially hot. I am glad this is a secondary source of heat along with the central heating radiators, rather than the main source.

    An advantage is that the coal flame effect can work independently of heat to give a cosy glow. And the coals are real coals which adds to the realistic effect.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cheriton electric fire 7 Sep 2010
    This turned out to be an excellent buy at a competitive price, very simple to fit and it worked.
    Tip wash the coal first otherwise you look like you have dug it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Cheered up by the Cheriton! 24 Dec 2011
    By Pastor
    We had just moved into a bungalow - fireplace blocked off, gas fire and back boiler had been replaced by a combi in the kitchen. Lounge felt cold even when it wasn't. What to do? Instant solution - electric coal effect. Now you are thinking "Oh, a Magicoal, plastic looking, unrealistic ...". Not if you get this on Amazon - £40 off, free supersaver delivery but came in the same time as the paid-for delivery. Take the box off; add the REAL coal (gloves a good idea, as a previous reviewer suggested), plug in and switch on the glow... and marvel that it is not really burning. If you are still cold, there are two heat settings, with a hidden fan that blows downward (good idea!).

    Why not 5 stars? Fan noise is a little obtrusive if one is sitting quietly - no problem if TV/radio/CD on (but you won't often need more than the flame effect on if your heating is good; it looks so real you feel warm). The only real gripe is that the reflective background shows the carpet/flooring if you lean back and spoils the realism. A slate slab/hearth in front would help. There is a plastic imitation one for it, but I'm off to reclamation yard after Christmas!

    Great quality for the price, runs quietly and gives a good heat source, the finish is far better than I thought it would be.

    A really nice flame-effect fire. The effect is very realistic and provides a warming focal-point in our room - ideal on winter evenings.

    I bought this product for a friend and she is so pleased with it. She had viewed it at several big name stores and i decided to buy it from Amazon, saving £50 pounds in the process. The fire was delivered very quickly and is an excellent product.

    4.0 out of 5 stars flame effect electric fire 13 Nov 2011
    Dimplex CHT20 Cheriton Traditional Freestanding Optiflame Effect Electric Fire, 2 KilowattThis was
    purchased to fill the gap left by and old boiler and flame effect gas fire. (new boiler now in loft) This fire fits in
    perfectly and looks good and works well. You can have the flame effect without the heating to lighten up a dull day
    by flicking one of the three rocker switches. The other two for are for different heating settings and flame effect.
    Recommended.
