Very good

Ingrid, South Africa. 8 June 2015

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

Jayshree, South Africa. 4 July 2017

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

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.

Barbara, South Africa. 5 June 2017

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.

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).

Gideon, South Africa. 25 July 2017

Works a treat. Love it.

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.

Shane, South Africa. 26 June 2017

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

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

Louise, South Africa. 20 June 2017

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!

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!

Anna, South Africa. 22 June 2017

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

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.

Thammy, South Africa. 9 June 2017

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

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

Jeanne, South Africa. 8 July 2017

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

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!

Sharon , South Africa. 11 July 2017

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.

Lynn, South Africa. 1 July 2016

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

Neil, South Africa. 14 July 2017

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.

Zubair, South Africa. 10 July 2017

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

Marianne, South Africa. 5 July 2016

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

Andrew, South Africa. 18 May 2017

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!

pieter, South Africa. 6 June 2017

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.

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.

Nick, South Africa. 23 July 2017

Effective performance

James, South Africa. 22 June 2016

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

Genevieve, South Africa. 27 July 2017

small but works very well and warms a fairly large space

Carolyn, South Africa. 14 July 2017

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 !!

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!

Frank, South Africa. 24 July 2017

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

Carla, South Africa. 22 July 2016

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

Hayley, South Africa. 5 July 2017

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!

Cedric, South Africa. 12 June 2017

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.

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.

Chris, South Africa. 15 September 2017

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

Sizeka, South Africa. 31 July 2017
