Fireplaces once were the primary sources of heat for homes. Now they're more closely associated with decorative, environmental atmosphere. Yet the visual appearance of a crackling fire seems to reduce stress and is considered to provide an aura for romance and intimacy. Most apartment dwellers are deprived of the positive, tranquil moods that are induced by fireplaces. Even those living in brownstones may have inoperable fireplaces. The Dimplex CS3311 is a safe, electric heater that resembles a portable fireplace. It can thermostatically heat a 10 foot by 12 foot room at up to 5,115 btu. Furthermore, this portable, compact unit has a simulated 3D fire simulation within a chamber to deliver the illusion of a natural, crackling fire. Now every home can experience the joy and soothing, spiritual enhancement that a fireplace can bring. With heat on/off settings, this fireplace can elevate moods anytime throughout the year. At approximately 23.5 inches high x 20.3 inches wide x 13 inches deep, the Dimplex CS33116A is a freestanding, portable fireplace that can conveniently move from room to room. Electric powered, there are no fears of possible carbon monoxide fumes. Stable, and dependably safe, the CS33116A is the anywhere fireplace for everyone. When combined with a realistic flame effect and economical operation it's easy to see why electric fireplaces offer the perfect solution to your supplementary heating needs. Besides, the appearance is so soothing that you'll just love watching it while reading, knitting, PC'ing, alone or together with that special friend. Add a fireplace to your home. It's a reasonably affordable major improvement to your state of living.

I'm not really going to speak much to its heating ability because the fact is that a 1300W forced air heater is a 1300W forced air heater, regardless of the form it comes in. No space heater will give much more than 1300W because then you're into blown circuit territory.
I personally have this unit setup about 2-3' from my recliner in the living room (it's in front of my fireplace), so it is basically heating the area around my feet, I think it seems to be working well, but then I don't expect it to do much more than kick the room temp up about 1-2* higher than the central heating is set for, my room is a 15x15 room with two double-sized openings to other spaces...
Also, a word of warning that I heeded thanks to another reviewer: The first time this unit is turned on it STINKS. There is some sort of oil or something on the heating element. It gives of a distinct burning smell. Had I not already opened the windows in the room, and the adjacent room, I have no doubt my smoke detector may have gone off (which in my case means 5-6 units on all levels yelling "SMOKE DETECTED! EVACUATE! EVACUATE!" and can get really annoying very fast!!)
- It's got a metal top/sides. It's not overly heavy, but does feel nice and solid
- The "fire" effect and glowing logs are surprisingly nice
- Overall appearance is quite nice
- It does make some noise (the fan) but it's not loud, and it's a deep rushing noise, so it's easy to tune out
- I would have liked to see a heavier cord, 3-prong cord. With a metal body and resistive-heating elements that seems important to me
- The remote will only turn the unit on/off, it will not let you change the temperature
- There is no way to run the heating part w/o the fake flames (I suppose I could unscrew the light bulb...)
- MOST IMPORTANT: There is no way to adjust the power consumed by the heating element (more on the below)
I used a non-contact thermometer to measure a few things for anyone interested:
- Output at the grill, 250-350*F (it's HOT, you should be careful of small children around this unit, and be very careful of objects anywhere near the underside)
- Floor in front of the unit, 120*F (I have the stove placed on the tile floor in front of my fireplace, there is a lot of thermal mass there... I'd be seriously hesitant to place this on a medium/deep pile carpet)
- Most important: The plug/cord, 85*F (this measurement was taken after the stove was continuously heating for over FOUR HOURS. This was my biggest concern because I read another review here where someone said the cord/plug got hot to the touch--my cord/plug are not getting "hot", but they are warm. I think after four hours I've reached a steady state where it won't get any hotter, so my conclusion here is that this is not a significant problem. Tho, I would add however, that the outlet I'm plugged into is a new outlet, so it is not loose like one that is 15+ years old. You might consider replacing the outlet you plug this into if you notice your plug/cord getting more than just warm--new outlet is cheap, only a buck or two, and replacement is generally easy, everyone probably knows someone who can do it)
Here is my biggest grip about this stove, and this class of stoves in general:
This thing draws 1360W when operating w/ the heating element on... a typical 15A circuit will trip at 1800W, so there isn't much head room here. I really would have appreciated at least a 2-level heating element setting so that I could optionally run the stove at ~700W instead. I have an oil filled electric radiator with 3-element settings, it only cost $40 and has an LCD display and electronic controls... not sure why this stove at 4X the price cannot have the same.
The heater is attached to the bottom, and there is approximately a 1-1/2" clearance, so if you place this directly on carpeting, most of the heat exiting the heater will warm the carpet up quite well. I purchased some 18" x 18" cement blocks made to look like bricks from a local home improvement store, and stacked them to form a faux hearth.
Another thing you might want to get if you miss the crackling noise that you can only get from a "real" fire: Crackling Fire - download this to your MP3 player or burn it to a CD and play it softly in the background.

I’ve been using it now for several months of cold weather in Ohio. What surprised me most was the realistic quality of the flames. If you didn’t know, you really have to check it and look closely. I mean you can tell, but it’s pretty nice, especially for the price point. It’s pretty quiet too, I don’t notice it running very much.
I’m not super impressed with the amount of heat it blows out, you have to kind of be right up on it to feel it, however, I will say that when I run it , My normal heat doesn’t seem to kick in at all. I live in a one bedroom apartment, so after a few hours of running it, it gets pretty stuffy hot. I usually run it for an hour two when I return home to kind of warm up the place again. My energy bill has been lowered to, I was very pleased with the fact that it didn’t spike my utility bill. So far, so good, I like the way it looks, way better than a normal space heater. It makes my apartment quite cozy and i’ve definitely been raving about it!
If I make grammar mistakes, blame Siri. I’m too lazy to go back and correct it lol
