Electralog Compact Electric Stove Is an Electronic Fireplace Alternative

Electralog: Love It or Leave It?

When you rent, you don't always get the cozy comforts of a home that you long for, but the Electralog Compact Electric Stove ($150 from Lowe's) brings you a faux fireplace without voiding your lease. Its 3D screen provides roaring flames, and a heater can be set to high or low to fabricate that cozy feeling further.

You can also turn off the heat and enjoy the look of the flame alone — it even has a remote! I don't know if this falls into the category of material things that cannot be imitated by a gadget (I'm still getting used to the idea of e-book readers and digital picture frames) or if it's a fabulous alternative for my days as a renter. How do you guys feel about it?

I would LOVE to have one of these. Given, it would not fit in with my craptastic little mobile home, but once I move to an apartment, I think this would be an absolutely wonderful touch.

I've had this for a couple years (mine doesn't have a remote though) and I love it. I have it in my bedroom in case it gets cold and it's fairly realistic.

My grandmother uses this in her porch to keep extra warm!!! It's little and cute in person. Better than the traditional icky space heater.

I've seen these looking pretty real and quite beautiful. If I had a choice between this and nothing, I would certainly get this. And AKristin is right, it looks better than a space heater.

My parents have one of these, they are *incredibly* realistic looking and sounding. MUCH classier than a space heater.

Hmm, I'm surprised. $150 sounds pretty inexpensive to me.
