What a corny video - definitely won't be buying now (party)
The window is glass. I was actually hoping for traditional cast iron or a smoked cast alloy , that would've been a bargain :D ;)
The £10 price is elsewhere like on Amazon - have a look. I actually bought the lantern yesterday when it was £4.99 (down from £11) at Robert dyas, they’ve since reduced the price by 50p. Are you expecting steel and glass for £5? Lol (lol)

Having read through all of the above comments it’s hard to work out whether this fan is actually any good. Some say it is practically useless and wouldn’t bother replacing if theirs broke whilst a few say it works really well. (confused)
I bought this last time it was on offer. In our particular install I have to say I'm amazed by the difference this makes. Our chimney is quite deep and (having placed this on the back of our stove) I can definitely confirm they make a huge difference. Hot.
I've got this model and it works really well, a lot better than another make I bought for £70
My father in law recently bought one of the Von Haus ones and I already have an Aldi Workzone one. The Aldi one is better. The VH seems to spin at a lesser rate for a given heat. The Aldi one is currently available at £15.99 free delivery if you top the order to £20 https://www.aldi.co.uk/workzone-stove-fan/p/021240327808601?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInv2ggOay5wIVibPtCh3nlgS1EAQYASABEgLwhvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds They wrok better if the stove is recessed into a chimney breast, so the heat concentrated and pushed out into the room.
Nothing special about this as can be got on Ebay and free postage fot the same price.

Anyone any idea how long the batteries last in thes? Got 2 to put in a empty fireplace and they look really good, just trying to work out how often the batteries will need to be changed if using on the timer (so will be on 6 hours each day).

It's meant to be a focal point in a fireplace that's all. I'm definitely considering one instead of the hassle, expense of a real log burner that needs a flue installed ect £££££ .
Gas CH, night storage heaters Virtually anything is cheaper than plain electric
I think the idea of these type of fires though is more for decorative purposes and occasional use, like a focal point when guests are visiting
What's a better way then?
For most people possibly the worst way to heat a house / room 15 or 30p an hour to run so let's say on average you run 3 hours a night and about 17 p per hour, for November through march 20 weeks at 7 days at 50p a day that's £70 just in the evenings.

Looks pretty nice TBH and the price ain't that bad either.
Next time?! Ha, I ordered and took my Aldi one back...but the control panel flap on the JTF one doesn't stay shut, magnet is useless. Cheap crap so didn't expect too much. Gonna replace the handles with brass ones from Sainsburys for a 'touch of class' (lol)
When I spoke to JTF, they said they had a lot of failed deliveries on Saturday. She offered me a refund of the delivery charge without any prompting.
Ordered, Delivery was set for Saturday but never arrived, called them today and received it this afternoon.. really nice and doesn’t look too cheap, can’t grumble at £30 + delivery.. nor to see if I can get delivery refund :/
To update on this, it was "delivered" by Yodel on Saturday - according to the tracking, but wasn't. Nothing delivered and no card, either (but I was in at the time of apparent delivery). But 'magically' this morning, it was on the van again, and was actually delivered this afternoon. Rang JTF, and they immediately refunded the delivery charge, making this even more of a barg!
Do not buy log fire FIRE29 from JTF. IT ARIVED WITH NO SCREWS to attach legs so cannot use. They just told me 4 days on NO SCREWS AT AL so fire cannot be assembled at all. Hopeless. be warned. anyone know sizes of the 12 screws needed for it I can buy online as nowhere near me. P E s t ! a v o I D ....
Hi - had this a few months and at first was gutted as I thought you had to clean every time (which I think it says to). Ignored that as worse than emptying the ash before, and am happily emptying ever 5-6 small fires.
Thanks a lot for highlighting the alternatives. Based on past experience with Valiant (with a stove fan in this case), if not too far off the price of alternatives, I would recommend going for it as it was a completely different class to the two other models I had (but time will tell here).
Thanks for highlighting pollution minimisation OP. Props to you.
Or this... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078GSDB3L/
Surely the filter on this is going to need cleaning almost every time you use it?

Funny enough I don't see a deal when I look at your profile either, not one deal posted, so even if it doesn't go red hot it might save a few people £30 and its still a better deal then then you've ever posted, but thanks for the input anyways

Will this actually keep your room warm?
Cool, ta. It does look nice, and certainly has the modern feel which is what I'm looking for.
Pretty much the same except this is wall hung remote control and more of a real looking LED picture
