I have always had an electric fire as I stated in one of my other reviews - I just love electric fires and wouldn't be without one. I sold the Dimplex Castillo that I had as I bought a new fire.
The fire itself looks like a gas flame fire. It is 22.6 x 60.3 x 66.5 cm. You need to read the instruction manual, can be a wee bit fiddly to fit. The fire is all silver with a silver or black hood over the flame window. The fire has a fake flame effect which I just love,it is so realistic and mine also came with fake coal or white pebbles.
With this fire, you can press the button on it for it to light up with the flame effect which you can keep on without any heat. If you prefer you can put either of the two heat settings on, the first heat setting will warm up a room, it works by blowing hot air out from the bottom and also from the hooded vent. The second heat setting is a lot more powerful so the room will heat up quicker. The only problem with the second setting is it can be a bit noisy.
For me, I found the fire to be too noisy especially if you are trying to watch TV which is why I sold the one I had. I personally prefer the cast iron fire stove also made by Dimplex - but each to their own!
