Dimplex Fuel-Effect Fire, Cheriton CHT20
Cheriton Free Standing Electirc Fire
We purchased this to replace our gas fire that died. it is a lovely looking free standing easy to install fire. The coals which you put on and arrange yourself are real coals, so I would advise wearing gloves as the coals are quite dirty. The fire affect is lovely, but I am struggling with the noise from the fan. My husband can block the noise out but I can't, so unless this improves we will have to give up using the heating element on this model which actually defeats the object of buying it. If you are able to block out the noise of the fan then I think you will be very pleased with the Cheriton overall. It looks nice and the flame effect is the best I have seen on an electric fire,

We had our gas fire removed and decided on a cosy electric fire. The Dimblex Fuel effect cheriton fits the our needs perfectly. Its homely and the flame and coals are very realistic. Our lounge is quite large (23'x20') so it takes some time to warm up even on the 2kw setting. It fits nicely on the hearth and looks very much like our old gas fire.

Free standing fire so no fitting required. Looks good. Flame effect excellent. Pleased with product. Good value for money.

Love the item
Very pleased with this electric fire which looks perfect set in our brick fireplace and the flame effect is very realistic. The price was very good too, being £50+ cheaper than at garden centres.

good looking item
fits flush to wall and looks really good, its noisy when fire is turned on, requires tv volume to be turned up, but gives effective heat after some time.

I bought this fire to stand on my open fireplace. I didn't want to close off my open fire, although it only gets lit a few times a year. I couldn't find an inset fire that would fit, so opted for this free-standing fire. It looks really nice and will be very useful to warm just the lounge during the day, instead of turning all the radiators on and in the evenings just the flame to make it feel cosy. I'm very pleased with it and do not have any negative comments.

Adds a welcoming focal point to the room
It's very easy to install, unpack, place it where you want it, plug in, switch on.
It has the most realistic flame effect which can be on without heat and the two speed fan is very efficient. The room we have it in is 300 sq feet. It soon warms up the room on cooler days without having to switch on the central heating system for the whole house..

Ordered this online for my 78 year old mom and she is delighted! The fire is very attractive and has had lots of appreciative comments from friends and neighbours (one has since gone and bought the exact same fire!). Heats the room up quickly and feels cosy, even when only the flame effect is on. We love it!
