Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a compact electric stove to take the chill of a small or medium sized room. Being compact, this stove is ideal for mobile homes.

Pros:

  • The compact size of the Duraflame DFS-550-7 makes it a perfect stove for compact spaces. Its robust metal construction ensures the stove is highly durable and resistant to heat. Users compliment its lightweight, so it is easy to move to different rooms without any assistance. The charming design of this stove incorporates transitional styling to provide a touch of class to your living space. The sleek matte black finish adds to the visual appeal of this piece.
  • Plug & Play Operation – This freestanding stove plugs into a regular 120-volt outlet and has a vent-free design so no special hook ups or electrical installation is needed.
  • Using patented flame technology, the stove delivers a realistic flame above glowing logs and a pulsating ember bed. The flame can be turned on even without heat so you can enjoy the visuals of the flame all year round. Using the dimmer control, you can alter the height of the flame to your preference.
  • The fan-forced 1500-watt heater produces a heating output of 4600 BTUs/hour which provides enough heat to warm up rooms as large as 400 square ft.
  • The basic controls located inside the door are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. The stove features just two switches; a main power switch and an On/Off heater button. There is also a mechanical thermostat knob so you can regulate the temperature to a setting comfortable for you.
  • A four button slim-line remote control gives you convenient operation of the stove so you can operate the functions without leaving your arm chair.

Cons:

  • The unit’s temperature control isn’t perfect. When the heater has almost reached the set temperature, it cycles between On/Off. This problem is pretty insignificant however.
  • Some users found that the remote control doesn’t always work correctly. However, these complaints are in the minority.
