Comments about Product: I have two of these stoves, red and white, and they are excellent. The red one is more of a wine color then bright red. They put out a very warm heat that quickly heats up a large room without the stove getting hot. The flame is natural looking and the stove dependable and attractive.
Comments about Product: I ordered this in November because my aunt has it in white and I haven't seen a similarly priced white one anywhere else. I loved it, until the light when out less than two weeks after I got it. It would come on and go off again occasionally, until it went out and never came back on again. The heater still works, just the "fireplace" aspect doesn't, which is honestly the entire reason I bought it. Plow & Hearth did replace it, but it's annoying that it just quit working. I thought it may have been a loose bulb so I popped open the back but it's more complicated than just tightening a bulb, and I didn't want to break the heater part while trying to fix the light.
Comments about Product: We purchased this stove about two years ago. We really enjoyed it. However, when it got close to a year, it stopped heating. The store replaced the stove. However, it is about one year and this stove has stopped heating. We really don't use that often.[..]!!
Comments about Product: we have 2 other heaters with out the flame This one is our favorite Placed on the wall next to my recliner and I put the foot part up so I can feel the warmth on my feet, that used to always be cold(not anymore :)
Comments about Product: I am so glad I bought this item! It's exactly what I needed to warm up my chilly bedroom this winter. It works well & looks really nice. I plan on purchasing another for my library.
Comments about Product: Love this beautiful stove! For the size it heats up a room nicely. I bought one of these stoves in the cream color and after almost a year of use, it suddenly died. I called Plow and Hearth and explained the situation. Without any argument or having to send it back, they sent me a brand new stove! I won't hesitate to shop here again!
Comments about Product: Bought this for a screen porch and couldnt be happier. Since some other reviews described the unit as cheap-looking or even broken, we checked it out at the store. Size was just right for our space and we liked the realistic flame effect. It is lightweight and will be easy to move around as needed. When we mentioned that it was on sale online, the Raleigh-North Hills store gave us the lower price. Satisfied all around. This was our purchase at Plow and Hearth and it wont be our last!
Comments about Product: Great in every way....cute, compact and heats quite well considering it's small size. However, my experience is the same as others here....only expect a year out of this little heater. Just not made to last. However, I placed my replacement order tonight.....
Comments about Product: This is a cute heater for the price. Although, it is plastic and looks a bit cheap up close. I use it in my bathroom, which has a cold floor, and it was a good solution for that room. It definitely works well for small spaces, even on the lowest setting. There is no remote control so you have to change the settings each time at the bottom, which is not difficult.
I would actually recommend the heater itself, but not with the shipping issues that I experienced.
Comments about Product: I PURCHASED THE WHITE COMPACT ELECTRIC FIREPLACE
AND MY HUSBAND AND i ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH IT.
IT HEATS THE SIZE OF OUR ROOM NICELY, AND LOOKS VERY ATTRACTIVE IN THE CORNER WHERE WE PLACED IT.
Comments about Product: Bought this cute little electric fireplace for the master bedroom to take the chill out of the room. It works great! The ambiance is wonderfully relaxing. Ordering was simple, delivery was fast, and putting on the legs was not hard. For the price, it's really nice. I would recommend you check it out.
Comments about Product: This is our 3rd electric fireplace ordered. One for us, one for our daughter, and one for my sister. Amazing and wonderful and does a terrific job saving us having to raise the thermosat in the whole house. Highly recommend.
Comments about Product: Use in the added room, which tends to be cooler than the rest of the house. It looks nice when on and when off. So much better than a standard heater. Although the on/off switch is safely out of the way, it is hard to reach. I found that the holes for the leg screws were a tad off and had to get a strong man to help me put them in. Even so, I'm very pleased with the purchase.
Comments about Product: Bought this for my son as a Christmas gift (2012) for his playroom. The heating element didn't last a full season. Went to use it this winter and the heating element doesn't even turn on. Fan blows, faux fire lights, but now heat. Had an electrician look at it and it is not worth the money to replace.
Comments about Product: Got this for my wife's craft/hobby room, we were both very surprised at the quality(for the price)and the appearance of the firebox(logs and flame).Dose a good job warming a smaller room and my wife loves the ambiance it gives her crafts room...
Comments about Product: We are very happy with this little heater. Actually was larger than we thought. Not only effective, but adds charm and beauty to every room. We use it mostly in a bathroom where there is no heat. No more getting out of the shower and being cold. It was easy to install legs and then heater was ready to go. We will use this on a daily basis.
Comments about Product: I bought this stove to add heat to a small bedroom/office that is always chilly. I have been delighted with it since I opened the box. It really puts out a lot of heat, and looks nice in the space. I purchased the red stove, which works perfectly with the decor and adds a nice bit of ambience without taking up a whole lot of room. For the price, it's a wonderful buy!
Comments about Product: I bought this for my daughter as her room is over the garage and the coldest room in the house. Not only does it solve the problem and her room is now the toastiest, but it definitely adds ambiance to her room and is tranquil for sleeping. Shipping was fast too. Great product, cool to the touch and really works.
Comments about Product: We assembled the stove and plugged it in--NOTHING. Checked the outlet, etc. Dead as a doornail. We had ordered a larger model from Plow and Hearth a couple of years before and loved it. Called and exchanged over the phone. Customer service was great! All I can ask for!
Comments about Product: Works just fine and is nicely designed. However the color I ordered based on the picture is not what I received. The red color is more brown with some red in it. Not what I was expecting, and would've returned it if my girls hadn't already turned the box into an American girl doll house. Order the black or Ivory, and stay away from red unless brown is the color you really want.

Cute as a button!
Comments about Product: It hasen't been cold enough yet to use it but it sure is cute. thought it was broke but read the directions (daa) and there is a master switch on the bottom you need to turn on. Hope it works all winter.
Comments about Product: Delivery was super fast and assembly was so easy! I live in a basement apartment of an old house, but this fireplace was the perfect addition. It is very portable and easy to move from one room to the next. It really does heat the whole room even though it is small. I recommend this to anyone and everyone!
Comments about Product: Be sure to note the measurements -- this stove is tiny and completely made of cheap plastic. It doesn't look anywhere near as nice as pictured. Really cheap looking and it could be easily tipped over it's so flimsy.
Comments about Product: Use it to keep spot areas warm and to keep the oil heat from coming on in Autumn, and spring ! The heat oil that is always comes on in bitter cold and did with the real wood stove ! Have highly liked these and suggested to friends :-)
Only problem is power outages there is no oil heat or electric :-( Hope for no outages as no water as use well which has an electric pump !
These stoves add just enough heat to take the cold away and are easy to use and clean :-)
Comments about Product: I love the look of this little fireplace. I bought the red one at the end of last winter 2013. It warmed my large bathroom nicely. The fire looks really nice and cozy. Well, I used it for about two months last winter and turned it on this Fall and the heaters won't work. Sometimes, if you only press one of the heater buttons and turn it up high, the heater will come on for five minutes, but then it blows cold air after that. I know we are working it correctly, because my husband tried everything too. I'm very disappointed because I loved this little fireplace.
Comments about Product: I sent the stove to my daughter who has a small apartment and no heating in Oakland, CA. She just loved it! Small enough to fit with a beautiful, bright flame. Just enough heat output to warm her living room nicely!
Comments about Product: I bought this stove for supplemental heat during the winter months for my master bathroom. Turn it on and 2 minutes later the bathroom is toasty warm. Perfect for what I needed and looks great too. The only improvement would be: on/off switch should be mounted on the back near the top.
Comments about Product: I love this little heater! It's just the right size for a bedroom or sunroom, it heats GREAT (2 power choices for that), and it's fun just to have the fire effect on to cozy up a room! Have the "fireplace" on right now and it's August in Texas! VERY pleased with this purchase.
Comments about Product: Pretty much as expected as I have a larger version of this that I've used for years and really like. This one is cute in white, nice and small for small spaces. It was difficult to assemble because the screw holes for the legs were off. And to turn it on or off or adjust it, the controls are very low to the ground which could be awkward for some.
Comments about Product: The product is used for occasional and spot heating.
Appearance,size and performance is good.
Easy internet ordering.
As stated earlier, the control panel door hinge was broken. Door did not close properly. I repaired the hinge. Product should not have left the factory.
Comments about Product: I purchased this electric stove for my 4-season porch which gets a bit too chilly in winter. It is really a delight, and I receive a lot of compliments on it AND questions about where I got it. It arrived promptly and is the color I was hoping for. The heat output is not as robust as I would like (hence just 4 stars) but it does take the chill off. I like it a lot.
Comments about Product: I purchased this heater for a corner in a tv/sitting area in my bedroom. It has added so much coziness to the area. The flames look realistic and the controls give you several settings to adjust, which I like. I only had to take it out of the box and screw the 4 legs on. It is limited on the amount of heat it puts out because of the size, etc. but is great for what I got it for. If you want one to heat a sizeable room in very cold weather, I would get the larger one. This one is great for some extra heat and is not only functionable but is so cute. I'm very happy I bought it. Also, it never gets hot anywhere one the outside or the inside where the flames and logs are.
Comments about Product: I love the way it makes my family room more cozy. We have a small fireplace which has no damper, so the chimney has been sealed off, but we'd still like to see more than just an empty fireplace. This small heater is just right for putting into this fireplace. It's so cute and looks so real that you hesitate to touch it fearing it is actually hot - but it's not! It's also great for people who have apartments and would like the extra heat with the style of a wood burning stove, and safety of electricity over a real fire. We liked it so well, we bought one for our daughter as well.
Comments about Product: I put this little heater in my bedroom. It heats the entire room perfectly. . I ordered the color black, which looks really good. It works exactly as the company stated it would. I'm thinking of buying another one in red for another bedroom.
Comments about Product: I am most happy to share my comments today! I do admit to checking out other customer comments before I made my purchase. In addition to being enamored with my purchase, what's a real plus is I was able to get this product on sale!
The legs that I had to affix to the cabinet bottom lined right up with the pre-drilled holes. I was holding my breath (from reading other comments), but the assembly was quick, and with a little dusting off of the styrofoam particles from the secure packaging, this little beauty was ready to place in my den!
I am also very pleased with the "shade" of red that arrived, as it is what one would call "barn red". The red has brown tones (a rustic red), but please know that the cabinet is NOT rustic, or scarred/marred in appearance like rustic would infer...it is smooth and detailed quite nicely. In my (humble) opinion, it isn't even (to me) considered burgundy like others remark in written comments...the color is just perfect for my tastes!
If this particular item is truly "calling your name", don't hesitate to try it, especially for the price. It makes a very nice addition to the decor in your home! I have very good taste (within my own budget limitations) and will easily pass over something if it isn't made well. Choices I make are decided with scrutiny, with intentions of them being an investment. I can truly envision owning all three colors of this product!
Comments about Product: I purchased this heater because my bedroom can be very chilly -- too far from the woodstove to heat up adequately. With the bedroom door closed, this heater heats the bedroom very quickly just before bedtime. In the morning, I turn the heater on again for a short time and I can dress in a warm and toasty room.
Comments about Product: I bought this little heater for our master bath, which is off of our bedroom. The bedroom has a cathedral ceiling which hogs all the heat, leaving the master bath rather chilly on cold mornings & evenings. It is about a 130 SF area. It has turned out perfect. Just what I wanted and the little white heater fits my decor perfectly. Hubby was skeptical, thinking it was a fire hazard, etc. etc. but has come to love the warmth this little beauty puts out. Controls are on the front, behind the little door, with a main switch on the very front, at the bottom near the leg. You can set your controls, and just flip the switch. The thermostat works great. The heat blows out at the bottom. I've also just turned on the lights for ambiance! It has been well worth the $. Our little kitty is also in love with the heater.
Comments about Product: We ordered this for our little cabin up in Maine. (mainly for the Fall and cool nights when a fireplace fire would be too hot). However, we set it up at home to try it out and we love it soo much, we're going to order another one! We ordered the red, and it's not too bright (very rich color-glazed). I swear, this looks exactly like a REAL wood stove. The quality was the greatest surprise. It seems that nothing is made well or to last any more. This is well made and will last us for many years, I'm sure. Another great thing about this is you can have it around pets and even children, without worry. We highly recommend this!
Comments about Product: I purchased this electric stove for a bedroom. Love the color, white/ivory is difficult to find. My only suggestion (not even really a complaint) is the loudness of the blower. If you are trying to sleep with this electric stove on, I found the blower was a bit too loud so I end up turning it off. As for the legs, I found it took some adjusting to get them just right over the holes. Otherwise it is very quaint and the size allows it to fit anywhere.
Comments about Product: I can't say anything bad about it. I love it and use it every day when I come home for lunch and at night. Both the thermostat and "flame" light are adjustable. It is very small, which is what I wanted, so just make sure to pay attention to the measurements so you're not caught off guard. I got the red one, and it adds a nice pop of color to my neutral living room.
Comments about Product: Received our heater today, and it took only a few minutes to unpack, screw on the legs, and set it up in our small library. It puts out plenty of heat for this space (which is about 120 square feet) at the lower setting. My only surprise was that, although advertised as "red," it is most certainly NOT red. It's a maroon--a lovely deep rich-looking color, but definitely not red. I looked at the picture again on the website, and sure enough, it doesn't look particularly red there either. I just didn't pay enough attention. I might have bought a white one if I'd realized what I was getting, but oh well. I'll keep this one, and it'll be Just Fine! I would've given five stars, except for the color issue.
Comments about Product: I live in a very old house with no heat in the upstairs bedrooms. I chose the small heater which fits nicely right under the window. It's perfect for getting dressed on a cold winter morning.
I also like the choice of colors. I bought the white.
Comments about Product: This small stove is just right for my cottage-style bedroom. The white color, the small size, and the style fit right in with the other furnishings perfectly. And it works great; easy to set and I haven't had a shivery night since I plugged it in.
Comments about Product: I purchased this space heater/stove to use in my living room so that I can keep the thermostat turned down in the evenings. It is delightfully cute, and does an excellent job of heating my room (approx 12' x 20'). I have only used it with one of the heating units activated; the built in thermostat does a great job of regulating the output as well. The heat blows from the lowest part of the unit, but it does not get hot underneath, or anywhere other than directly in front of the blower; so it seems quite safe. It was very easy to assemble; the legs screwed in easily in a couple of minutes. It is very light and easy to move from one room to another. My only complaint is that the on/off switch is awkwardly located in the blower part of the unit rather than up with the other controls.
Comments about Product: I use this stove to add a little extra warmth to a cold room in our house. If I had ever realized what a wonderful and efficient job this heater does, I would have purchased it or one like it decades ago!
Comments about Product: Use it to warm up a bedroom on cold evenings and mornings. It warms up the room quickly and the fire adds a nice cozy feel to the room. It is small and does not take up much space and is easy to move. The only problem that both the fan and the fire mechanism are noisy.
Comments about Product: Read the description carefully if you must buy online. It is accurate with one exception, the "quality built construction appearance" is an exaggeration. This is a very tiny, lightweight, matte plastic heater (a bit tacky and cheap looking), slightly "bigger than a breadbox". It is shabby chic adorable, perfect for a tiny room, girl's room, or where one wishes a cottage-y feel (especially if purchased in ivory). I imagine the red and black ones would create a more mod, cool, minimalist look. The product dimensions are clearly written, but take care and measure twice to be certain the size fits your needs. My husband carried the box out the store under his arm- very lightweight, which may be a huge plus for college students, children, grandma?.I purchased this for my 10 year old daughter because she misses our old home's stone fireplace after a move. If I did not see this in the store and touch the cheesy plastic, I would have been disappointed upon arrival sight unseen at home. Overall, it is a cute heater that works well. I was also afraid of the other comments about over heating/fire safety concern. No problems with that- cool to touch, small heater blows heat out the bottom front only, has not felt too hot to touch when left on for hours. I am a mom/safety nut and I almost did not buy this because of the perception of hazard, which would have been a mistake. You must screw in 4 metal (good quality)legs to assemble at home, so have a screwdriver ready. 5 minutes and it is ready to heat up any little space- cozy and cute.
Comments about Product: Used in my daughers room instead of baseboard heaters. Very toasty and nice night light. Pleased with product although the control knobs seem like they won't last... cheap plastic and wobbly.
Comments about Product: I use the heater in my bathroom, as it tends to get cold in the fall and winter. It's easy to put together, easy to operate, and easy to move around from one room to the other.
I realy like the look of it and the "flame" is attractive and as realistic as you get for this price.
Comments about Product: This product is wonderful- until it breaks. The first stove (in black) lasted a few months. I could tell it had broken when I turned it on and it was smoking and smelled of burning plastic.
Plow and Hearth have EXCELLENT Customer Service. They exchanged the product for me and paid for me to return the broken unit.
Now the second unit has a defect. The flame works great, but when the heater is turned on it starts having a high-pitched squeak (almost like a bird). The only way to get it to go away is to turn off the heater, which does no good in warming my home.
I wanted this to be a great product, but it hasn't proven so for me. If you order this I hope you receive a unit that works well for a long time.
Comments about Product: This was very well packed for transit (often a problem with this type of purchased). It is adorable and seemed to be of good quality (please note that the red color is a dark reddish brown). However, after turning it on it shut itself off after about 10 seconds. After that I could get it to go on twice more but again it shut itself off after a few seconds. And then it wouldn't go on at all. All the directions were followed, so I assume it was a defect in this particular stove. I'll exchange it and follow up with a review of the replaced stove.
Comments about Product: I bought this heater for my bedroom and it creates a perfect light and heat to make the room toasty before bed. I have not had a problem with the carpet underneath. It is not even hot to the touch. I would recommend to friends and family.
Comments about Product: We bought these for our son and daughter's rooms this winter. They are wonderful! Our children turn them on before bed and it warms their entire rooms and they are cool to the touch! We are very pleased with the product and the product price!
Comments about Product: we use this in our family room, it warms us beautifully, then my son saw it and bought it for use in his small home here in FL . . . my sister complains of being cold (lives in Michigan), so I boutht her one (early Christmas) and she LOVES it . . . I recommend it to everyone . . . THANK YOU, Jeannine Holley
Comments about Product: Last year's model. Fan motor went out after three months of minimal use. Having it replaced with the new model. Hopefully bugs have been worked out with the fan issue. Love it otherwise.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
