The look of a classic wood stove with the convenience of modern amenities: A remote control and buttons under the lid "light" the faux logs, a front and bottom fan provide variable heat output and a temperature control knob adjusts from 750-1500 watts. Homestead detail includes a clear plastic panel with metal tabs and a wire coil handle on the door, arched legs and goldtone hardware. Composite wood; metal and black textured finish. Remote uses 2 AAA batteries (not included). Heats up to 400 sq. ft. rooms. 20 1/4" w x 23 1/2" h x 13" d. Looks like a wood stove but saves messy clean up.
