    Great looking product

    Looks good and works really well. Easy to set up.

    Dimplex Gosford

    Beautiful fire and fabulous visual effect but unfortunately it has a very pungent smell from paint coating on log effect, replaced and still the same. Not pleasant to smell or breathe in whilst relaxing infront of the fire.

    Excellent fire

    LOVE LOVE LOVE This fire. Researched electric fires to death, and was very skeptical, but it is incredibly realistic. Annoyingly, the remote control arrived with the battery cover damaged, which AO are yet to respond to me about. It does steam up on full blast, but we often have it on low, which is plenty. Heater is reasonably quiet for a fan heater too. Would be five stars with a non-faulty remote!

    Best on the market

    This is the most realistic effect there is on the market, say no more. It's stunning and provides a perfect amount of heat even on its lowest setting. I live in a moderate sized apartment and it's always snug during the cold winter months. I had deliberated on buy this for some time but so glad I did

    Average for high price

    Expensive product for what it actually does. Water doesn’t last long. When heating is on quite loud and doesn’t really give out much heat. Good log effect though.

    Advice to stop the glass steaming up

    I bought this amazing fire just before Christmas and i was amazed at how realistic it was, as others have said on review the glass door can sometimes steam up if you have the steam on full, there is a way to have the steam on full so it really looks like you have a roaring log burner, before you turn it on full in the evening simply open the door wipe the glass with a damp cloth that contains a drop of washing up liquid and a little squirt of viniager, wipe the glass inside leaving it damp, close the glass door and you can then have the steam on full all evening without any steam building up on the glass door... Enjoy

    Super Smoke Effect Electric Stove

    This is the second Dimplex optimyst stove I've bought, as I love the cosy effect and authentic feel they give a room. This Gosford is a slightly larger model than my other one (a Bayport). Of the 2, I prefer the Gosford in terms of the fireplace smoke effect as the log bed is bigger and designed so the smoke (steam) appears through the logs rather than behind (as in the Bayport) so looks that bit more authentic. Shame the Gosford doesn't have the Bayport's live thermometer reading on the fireplace as makes setting the temperature that bit easier, and the Gosford's remote control although twice the size doesn't offer the same level of functionality (can't change the flame setting or required thermostat temp, these have to be set via the dials on the fireplace's control panel) - again, easy enough to do. You need to make sure you only use filtered water. Also the water tank, sump and little transducer (which creates the steam) does require cleaning every couple of weeks, understandable with the technology used as this prevents dirt / mould building up. A relatively quick job once you get the hang of it. Given the choice of the 2 models, then because of the better log bed design I prefer the Gosford.

    Realistic log fire

    Lovely fire, very realistic glow, you have to top up the water every few days but worth it for the effect. Throws out a lot of heat quickly.
