Recently, I mentioned that I got rid of our gas logs and replaced them with a fireplace grate, and some fireplace tools.  (Thank goodness I did this, because our gas bill last month was $250 without the gas guzzling gas logs).  In fact, part of Mr. Serious’ anniversary gift was a box of Duraflame logs (which I paid for).

A couple weeks ago, we had a snow day (who would have thought in Atlanta…but it happened) and I was so thankful for my new Duraflame Stax.  About 3 stax logs are equivalent to 25-30 pounds of real firewood (5-6 pieces) and burn for about 3-3.5 hours.

It was so easy to get a fire started with two little ones home with me.  All I had to do was take out two logs, place them in an ‘X’ shape and light the ends of both of them.  About two minutes later, we had a roaring fire that was actually hot and nice to look at.  I didn’t have to collect any kindling or paper to get it started, either.  After about 2 hours, I added the third log to keep the fire going.DSC_4936  (That’s the fire I built right there!)img-firewise-large

They burn much cleaner than wood with a lot less ashes to clean up.  And, they are made from 100% renewable resources.  That sold me alone.  We later had a fire with real wood.  It was really hard to keep going and the ashes were out of control.

Here’s a quick video showing how easy it is to start and enjoy a fire with Durflame Stax.

  1. Wow, I couldn't even guess how many fires we have in a year. We have a wood burning stove, and unless it's a "Red Burn Day", we have a fire every day in the winter. So maybe like 130…? 🙂

  2. I have about one fire a week – I use those Java Logs now but they don't last as long. I think I'd like to give that product a try :-).

  3. We have a fireplace and rarely use it…just because I don't like the clean up. Love the smell of them though. It would be nice to use it again!

  4. OK. Do you mean just fires in the fireplace or should I count the ones in the oven too? Because I have a lot of those:)
    We go in spurts with the fireplace.
    Maybe 15?

    I try to have a nice fire going at least 1-2 times a month. I hated lugging in the dirty, heavy wood, so this is a great alternative!

    I now subscribe to your blog. Thanks!

  7. The minute the temps at night hit 55 we light a fire in the fireplace. So about every night when it is cooler so about 60 or more.

  12. i have to admit… i'm skeptical! we LOVE our wood burning fireplace adn we've never tried a… um 'manufactured log' or something. i wonder if my husband would go for it? we have fires about twice a month.

  13. We don't light our fireplace very often, but we do use our outdoor fire pit quite a bit – maybe once a week throughout the spring and fall.

  14. We often have a fire every night in our fireplace as we love how it makes the house feel by having a fire in the fireplace.

    This would be great to try! Thanks!
