    has anyone got one of these fires?? cheapest i have found is from a retailer called trading post appliances? and argos are selling it for £119.99.

    Also it says optiflame coal effect, as its an electric fire will it have real coal in it for decoration or fake plastic cheap mank stuff?

    I had one of these Optiflame fires a few years back, everyone thought it was a real gas fire but it only lasted about 8 months before it packed in. Phoned up under the guarantee and was told it couldn't be repaired and to take it back and get a refund. BTW, it was lumps of joking coal as oppsed to the plastic strip coal that you see in many fires.

    I too find this strange. I bet it is the pottery type coal that is made to look like the real thing. They probably state it like this to show that it is not the plastic effect coals on the old electric fires.
