Top 7 electric and gas fireplaces & stoves

Since we are in the middle of winter and many of our readers up north are most likely grilling indoors, I thought it would be of great service to write an article and list our top electric and gas fireplaces and stoves.

Although the fireplaces and stoves listed below won’t allow you to cook on or in them, they will however keep you warm while barbecuing on your indoor grill or warm you up after you have braved the elements grilling outdoors in the cold.

Most of the electric and gas fireplaces and stoves we have listed here look like the real deal with realistic looking wood, fire and give off quite a bit of heat. For us grill masters who work with fire all the time, the ambiance is very similar. These fireplaces have some great features — they are very low maintenance; you don’t have to chop firewood, no need to clean out the fireplace or stove, they are very easy to install and there’s no smoke. How cool is that? Here’s our list:

Bionaire BFH5000-UM Electric Fireplace Heater with Remote Control

Bionaire BFH5000-UM Electric Fireplace Heater with Remote Control

This electric fan heater features realistic glowing logs and embers for the beauty of a fireplace without the hassle of cut wood, an open fire, propane, or fumes. The Bionaire BFH5000-UM requires no installation and can be placed in any room with its sturdy floor stand or wall-mounted with the included hardware. Simply plug it in and turn it on. Heat emanates from vents below the glass, quickly heating up the room, and the realistic flame effect can function with or without the heat. Push-button controls and an easy-to-read programmable digital display makes it effortless to operate. The unit’s thermostat allows for setting the fireplace to a comfortable temperature, while its 12-hour on-off timer can be set to preheat a room or to automatically turn the heater off after a specified amount of time. In addition, the unit’s remote control works great for adjusting the temperature from across the room. Safety features include tip-over protection and overheat protection, which automatically turn the heater off if it accidentally gets knocked over or starts to overheat.
