We purchased this patio heater as we were fed up of running around for gas bottles for our old patio heater. We are more than pleased with this electric one easily assembled and just plug it in and instant warmth. We used it a number of times over the summer months when the nights got a little chilly and it kept us lovely and warm in fact we had to turn the setting down. Much prefer it to the gas patio heater as it is easier to move around and saver to use under a gazebo. A good purchase and looks good.
