The Tabletop Fireplace is a liquid fuel fireplace that provides the colour, crackle, and comfort of a wood-burning fire without the smoke, smell, or sparks. It just need a stable surface to rest on, and recycled liquid ethanol as fuel (which gives off only water vapour and carbon dioxide).
The clean-burning, portable fireplace yields a bright yellow, orange, and red 7″-high flame that flickers without fumes. Generating up to 8,500 BTUs per hour (depending upon damper setting), it heats a 325′ sq. area, making it ideal for intimate gatherings around an empty fireplace, coffee table, or stand.
The fireplace’s stainless steel burner unit sits between two panes of tempered glass and is raised off a surface by 2″ while its heat is generated upwards and laterally without marring fine wood finishes.
One litre of liquid ethanol fuel (not included; costs about USD10) provides up to 2.5 hours of cozy reposing. While the cost of fuel per hour is rather expensive to operate and it cannot be refilled until thoroughly cool, the Tabletop Fireplace is truly a lovely and unique product that I would recommend to friends who are looking to add to the ambience and take the cool the room on a cold day.
The Tabletop Fireplace comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee at no additional charge. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return your Hammacher Schlemmer purchase for exchange, credit, or refund.
