This retro style, vent-free cast iron stove is 99.9% fuel efficient and rated at 25,000 Btu. Since venting is not required, it can be placed against almost any wall or in a corner. It uses the company's exclusive, patent-pending "Glaze Burner System" and realistic logs to create a very lifelike fire. The gas logs have a box-style burner with a material that produces a tall, dancing yellow flame with a bed of glowing embers. The stove can be manually controlled or by remote. The manually controlled model offers three heat settings, while other models can be controlled through a thermostat. While the basic stove comes in black, six designer colors are available. Floor pads, necessary for placement on carpet or tile, are available.
