Lovely looking product, but as soon as you use it the black comes off and you are left with a rusty looking product - very disappointed as it will need painting on a regular basis - which is not mentioned in the description. Too much money for the item to look like this after one use. Would not recommend to anyone unless you are using it for decorative purposes only.
I bought this as a birthday present for my husband. The first time we used it the black paint peeled off the back of the chimnea. I would have thought that given the use for the this the paint, when hot would have stayed on it for a longer than an hour. I wouldn't recommend this product. The only reason I am giving it one star is that it arrived the day after I ordered it!
