Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Gel fireplaces give you some interesting options for adding an accent to any room. These small stand-alone fireplaces don’t require any venting. This means you can use them anywhere or even move them to new locations. Gel fireplaces will burn gel fuel in cans, so you will have an ongoing expense for fuel. But they don’t require electricity to run. They’re made to burn clean, while giving you a beautiful looking flame behind glass. Gel fireplaces sometimes are rectangular in shape with a frame like a mini traditional fireplace. Others have a flame that pops out of a base unit that can be rectangular or round. The open flame is encased inside glass with no frame around it, so it can be seen from all sides.
