5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Little Stove Ever!, October 2, 2008
This review is from: Dimplex CS3311 Compact Electric Stove (Kitchen)
I love this stove!!! After a week of going back in forth between this size and the smaller one, and reading countless reviews I made my choice and selected this larger one and I am so happy that I did!! I ordered the stove on Tuesday morning and it arrived Wednesday afternoon, how is that for service? It looks great and it fits perfectly under our TV. We live in a drafty house built in 1936 and even though we live in central Texas, the winters at times can be quite cold. Having always had a fireplace as a fixture in childhood memories, and loving its warmth and glow, I was determined to find something that could fit our needs and this was it!

As soon as it arrived, I literally lifted it out of the box and plugged it in. The remote is simply an on/off remote, which can be manually customized on the back of the unit so it can turn on/off according to your preferences. (I wish the remote was able to control the heat.) There are three controls on the back, a knob to adjust the heat/temperature level, a three part switch to turn the unit off, on, and remote mode, and a third switch to turn heat on/off, (a winning feature). Just for kicks I decided to crank up the heat and in no time, hot/warm heat was coming out of the bottom. I like that it was almost radiating heat with a slight force; I don't like having heat blowing at me. This was putting out heat at the bottom and since heat rises it was no time before the room was toasty warm.

The stoves' overall appearance is very pleasing, it reminds me of what one might find in an old farm house, but please keep in mind it is on the smaller size; 20 in long, 23 in tall and 10 in deep. But if you have a smaller, draftier room, such as a den, this will work great. And keep in mind; it is super light so you can move it around the house depending on where you are. I can't wait to move it to the kitchen, for that nostalgic "fireplace in the kitchen" feeling!

Hope this helps, and enjoy! º

Dimplex CS3311 Compact Electric Stove I've been trying to decide, like you, whether to get the smaller one or this one. I have a fireplace in my old house(built in 1931-no insulation in walls, drafty-I'm in Southern Calif.), but after an earthquake 20 years ago, the floor of the fireplace is cracked & the chimney is coming loose from the rest of the house. I can't afford to fix it, so it's being held up by prayer. I miss the old fireplace, so cozy. I'm trying to come as close as I can to that feeling for cheaper, & produce heat in this old house. Your review is giving me pause for thought.

I got mine the next day as well for $3.99 shipping because I signed up for Amazon Prime, which is like a shipping club at Amazon. I LOVE this stove, and the larger one (which I also got) has the clicker and adjustable heat. Dimplex CS3311 Compact Electric Stove

Does anyone know how much electricity this stove uses?

Monica, does it really look like a fireplace, I mean does it light up like flames? I always wanted a real fireplace, but never had the room for it.

Does the fact that the heat on this fireplace comes from its bottom preclude our using it as a supplemental heat source in our large bedroom that has a short shag carpet??? i.e.: Would it be unsafe for us to use this fireplace in our bedroom?

If this bottom heat disbursement fireplace would NOT be safe to use in our bedroom, does anyone know of another similar fireplace model they'd recommend that pumps out the heat from near the top of the heater?

Much Thanks.

In the description it says 1500 watts.

Did it make your electric bill more than other space heaters that heat up a comparable area?
