Dash, South Africa. 28 June 2015

The handle doesn't fit ALL ALVA gas cylinders. Bought the cylinder and heater from takealot and they it doesn't as per design. The heater does work and is effective.

Gizelle, South Africa. 27 June 2016

I was rather skeptical when purchasing these, but they really work well. They are easily portable and heat up a large room and a loft quite easily (I purchased 2).

Ernst, South Africa. 8 July 2016

Bought this for someone else, but had a chance to test it out over the weekend.
I was surprised by the size, it is tiny. The single panel is nice an big and it compared favorably to our big 3 panel gas heater. Remarkable lack of gas smell. Very portable and easy to store. I would highly recommend this product.

Stephen, South Africa. 27 June 2016

Exceptional little heater! Heats a large room on low (although gradually) and doesn't smell as much as my previous large 3-panel heater. It does, however, smell when the gas is almost finished.

NERISA, South Africa. 25 June 2015

It's compact and ideal for the bedroom.
very portable as well - if you ever wait to take on holiday.
well worth it.

Kobus, South Africa. 21 July 2016

Bought it for one of the cleaner ladies at my workplace and she can't stop talking about it and how it warms up her whole place. Great buy I'd say!

natasha, South Africa. 8 July 2016

My best winter buy for 2016! This product is amazing. I was a bit concerned about the size being too small but its perfect for my two bedroom place!

Alexander, South Africa. 12 August 2015

Amazing little heater! Don't be fooled by the size, the single panel is about 50% larger than a single panel on your normal 3 panel heater. It has 2 settings, low and high. High really pumps the heat, great to quickly heat a cold room, low works well to leave on and maintain a warm temperature. I use a 5kg cadac cylinder which lasts about 2 weeks of regular use. The size is perfect, the height of the heater is lower than your knee, and quite flat, making it great to pack away and forget about during the summer months.

Sandulela, South Africa. 10 May 2016

I Like the fact that It is portable

Cally, South Africa. 10 January 2017

It's a nice little heater and works well. However, we were unsure what surface we could place the heater on, it generally makes the surface very hot so keep that in mind. Also, the gas was finished really quickly, but that is because of smaller cylinder. My opinion - rather save up the extra money and get the larger gas heaters on wheels, the ones with 3 panels. They are easier to move around and the gas lasts longer with the larger cylinder. We ended up selling our single panel heater and buying the bigger one.

Sarah, South Africa. 26 May 2016

We bought this heater to warm our kitchen and adjacent braai room. It really does the job well and our 4 dogs very much approve of their nicely warmed sleeping area!

Danni, South Africa. 2 July 2016

The handle doesn't fit the 4.5kg Alva gas cylinder. Don't know why they advertise that it does.

Reeza, South Africa. 29 June 2016

This little gas heater is great. I have been using it on the low setting, which provides more than enough heat for a regular sized room (12-20 square meters). Additionally, the small size of this unit makes it really convenient to pack away when not needed. I definitely recommend this product!

Sean, South Africa. 19 June 2014

I have owned this little heater for 3 winters now - fantastic for bedrooms and very portable, much easier to stow in summer than a larger heater. It has two settings, Lo and Hi, Lo is more than adequate. It uses the domestic 3kg/4.5kg cylinders (e.g. the blue Cadac cylinders) that clip onto a rim at the back. You can pick the whole thing up with cylinder easily with one hand and move it around to another room (just wait until it has cooled first). Don't be fooled by the "single panel" - its one panel is about 1.5 times the size of the panels you see on the three-panel heaters, and it kicks out a lot of heat. Consumption is quite low - I go through a 4.5 Kg cylinder in about 2 weeks - compared with the 9 Kg cylinder of the three-panel in about the same time. I think I'm going to get a couple more of these.

fatima, South Africa. 4 May 2016

I am very much interested in buying this product however I would like to know if it does include with the gas cylinder or not

Chantal, South Africa. 27 July 2016

This little heater works like a dream. It's super-effective for its size and I'm very impressed. My only issue is that if you don't use the Alva gas bottle which is a flatter shape, the bottle and connector stick out way above the top and it looks fairly hideous. I'm not buying an Alva bottle because I can't swop it out anywhere near where I live. But even the Alva bottle would show. There's not much to this heater beyond its facade. It's far smaller and lighter than I expected. But, I got it on a daily deal, and will happily buy another at full price.

Leonard, South Africa. 5 February 2016

Brilliant little tool to keep you warm when the power is off

Jean, South Africa. 25 June 2015

The heater works great and I have nothing negative to say about it!Thanks!

Lynn, South Africa. 1 July 2016

Only used it once but an absolutely awesome product so far. Service and delivery as usual outstanding

Marianne, South Africa. 5 July 2016

Small and compact and doesn't dominate the sitting-room. Effective heating of a very cold area.

Lisa, South Africa. 5 July 2016

unfortunately not compatible with the Alva Gas cyclinders sold on Takealot.

Christl, South Africa. 18 July 2015

Great heater. Its might look small but it heats up my 2 bedroom flat well.

James, South Africa. 22 June 2016

Excellent service, one day delivery. Very good buy, ideal to heat up a bedroom.

Jacq, South Africa. 5 July 2016

We live in a small town. such a waste of time trying to find a bottle that fits to the heater. not all alva bottles fit

Monique, South Africa. 20 July 2016

Works just as good as a large gas heater! It just uses a lot less gas & is so easy to move around. Thank you for great service once again Takealot!

Carla, South Africa. 22 July 2016

Produces great heat. I'm happy. Easy to move about. Good purchase.

Sulaylah Karam, South Africa. 27 May 2016

This is a great product . I love it. Very powerful, even on low. Looks great too.

Mas, South Africa. 22 January 2017

Works like a charm. I've had it for over a year now.
