Very good

Effectively heats a 5 x 5 m room if you don't mind having a clunky gas bottle on the floor. Bigger units would probably cover the gas bottle for a neater aesthetic.
NOTE: although it works with a 4.5 kg bottle, the provided bracket does not fit around its neck so the gas bottle won't be fastened securely to the heater like the manual advises.

This is such a nice, no hassle heater that I bought a second one. Good safety features.

works like a charm - it's so small it's actually cute but works amazingly well. Hooked up to a 3kg bottle gas tank.

Ek sal nie die groter gas verwarmer koop nie, die klein verwarmer, maak gou die groot vertrek warm.
Baie tevrede met die produk

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.

Compact, Nifty, works straight-off and more than adequate for a large room. Would like it if one could buy a storage cover for it when not in use.

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).

Works a treat. Love it.

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.


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.

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

A lovely compact unit that certainly delivers at a reasonable price.

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!

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!

Impressive little heater, tiny enough to be portable and be used in smaller rooms but still generates enough heat to warm larger spaces as well, my only small issue is that the bracket that holds the cylinder does not really support other cylinders from other manudacturers

Does what its suppose to and more. Easy to use. Heats up rooms fast

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.

I Like the fact that It is portable

This is the perfect little heater! It is small enough to work well in an apartment or a bedroom without overheating the place, yet makes it perfectly cosy and warm. Easy to use, low on gas, and looks almost like a tiny fireplace. I am thrilled with this purchase, and hope to use it for many years to come. Easy installation, fits my 3kg Cadac gas cannister, simply delightful!

Lovely compact heater for a smaller environment.

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.

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!

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

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!

Heats up the room quickly, easy and lightweight to move around. Perfect for those winter evenings!

Exactly what I expected.

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.

The 4,5KG gas cylinder doesn't fit properly behind the heater.

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

Nifty little heater works a dream. Alva 3 kg gas bottle fits perfectly. Not the most elegant of heaters as bottle is not encased

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.

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

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

Love this heater, light and portable and doesnt take up a lot of space, yet gives off great heat. Perfect for a home office, or if you go away on a chilly weekend, could be invaluable.

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

Very efficient. Heats up a meduim size lounge with no problem at all. Has a built in safety feature to cut off the gas should the flame go out.

cute and great product . works well
just there should have been a stand or trolley for the gas tank

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

Perfect for some one who does not have a lot of space. Fits any size gasbottle

Amazing little gas heater, works perfectly well for small rooms and could even cope with a larger room if need-be. Am thoroughly impressed with the quality and effectiveness!

it warms the surface where it's standing a afraid to have it standing on wooden floors it will cause discoloration and possible damage. this is a major disappointed and a possible fire hassard!! the heater is sufficient for warming a small to medium sized room. it fits on a cadac 5 kg cylinder but it can't latch onto it so the bottle is free standing which is an irritation and unsightly. I would rather suggest a bigger heater mainly because of the fact that it heats the surface way above what I would consider to be safe.

The best product I ever bought

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

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

Effective performance

working very well

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

Beautiful little Minnie me gas heater.
Works good and has a low and high setting. Can only take smaller gas bottles. I do recommend this product !!

small but works very well and warms a fairly large space

I am so impressed with this little heater !! It's a champion. A little low on the ground, so I have put mine onto a table to give it some height. The Heater takes the Cadac 3KG gas bottle perfectly, don't bother with the Alva gas bottle it is too big !!

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

This heater works really well. I absolutely love it!

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!

small and compact and perfect for small sized rooms, had to get an adapter for the larger size gas canisters

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

Great product thank you. After an initial hiccup, the technical staff at Alva were great.. thank you! I have two Alva products, and will buy more! Service from Takelot, fast and brilliant as usual!

Not compatible with any Alva gas cylinders on the market if you want to use it as intended. The burner does give off a faint gas smell but i suspect its because of impure gas.

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

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

Please assist with returning!

Small and compact - For small areas
Remember you must still buy a gas bottle and gas!
Delivery quick
Overall a good buy

I would like to place an order.

Haven't used it yet however is compact and the perfect size


The item received was perfect as it was a gift for someone. However, I requested the option for a birthday wish card and nothing was given with the gift.

This heater is amazing small but it makes my house warm l like it.
