The Dimplex CS3311 Electric Stove is compact as well as efficient. Dimplex estimates that it costs 3 cents an hour to run the “flame” and 8 cents an hour to run the heater and the flame (this assumes the heater element is on 50% of the time) for a “typical” electric rate. Even if this claim is using low cost electricity, you can feel confident in running the stove with heat on for hours for less than a dollar or two.
For instant warmth plus ambiance, this portable electric stove features patented flame technology for the 3D effect of a realistic-looking fire, complete with dancing flames, but without the hassle of cut wood, an open flame, propane, or fumes. Customers repeatedly mention the realistic look of the stove and the flame as key reasons they like this electric stove.
The freestanding electric stove does not require venting or a chimney, and no combustion means no greenhouse gasses–just plug it in to any standard household outlet and turn it on for economically heating a living room, bedroom, or other cozy place in the home.
The CS3311′s fan-forced heater quickly and quietly distributes up to 5,115 BTUs of soothing warmth, while its adjustable thermostat allows for maintaining personal comfort levels. The stove can also provide a glowing fire without heat for visual enjoyment year-round. Concealed controls offer a clean look and a remote control comes included for turning the unit on or off from anywhere in the room. The 1500-watt electric stove measures approximately 11-2/7 by 20 by 23-1/8 inches.

I love this stove!!! After a week of going back in forth between this size and the smaller one, and reading countless reviews I made my choice and selected this larger one and I am so happy that I did!! I ordered the stove on Tuesday morning and it arrived Wednesday afternoon, how is that for service? It looks great and it fits perfectly under our TV. We live in a drafty house built in 1936 and even though we live in central Texas, the winters at times can be quite cold. Having always had a fireplace as a fixture in childhood memories, and loving its warmth and glow, I was determined to find something that could fit our needs and this was it!
As soon as it arrived, I literally lifted it out of the box and plugged it in. The remote is simply an on/off remote, which can be manually customized on the back of the unit so it can turn on/off according to your preferences. (I wish the remote was able to control the heat.) There are three controls on the back, a knob to adjust the heat/temperature level, a three part switch to turn the unit off, on, and remote mode, and a third switch to turn heat on/off, (a winning feature). Just for kicks I decided to crank up the heat and in no time, hot/warm heat was coming out of the bottom. I like that it was almost radiating heat with a slight force; I don’t like having heat blowing at me. This was putting out heat at the bottom and since heat rises it was no time before the room was toasty warm.
The stoves’ overall appearance is very pleasing, it reminds me of what one might find in an old farm house, but please keep in mind it is on the smaller size; 20 in long, 23 in tall and 10 in deep. But if you have a smaller, draftier room, such as a den, this will work great. And keep in mind; it is super light so you can move it around the house depending on where you are. I can’t wait to move it to the kitchen, for that nostalgic “fireplace in the kitchen” feeling!
The Dimplex CS3311 Compact Electic Stove has the same great flame-effect technology as other Dimplex products. There just simply is no better “artificial flame” at this price, and probably not at a higher price either.
I ordered this for basement rec. room. Both for the ambiance of a fireplace, and the heat to remove chill from winter weather. This little stove is a winner. Very well made, so easy to install… just plug it in to the wall. Can’t beat that. Flame effect, is really nice, in moments you forget it’s not real flames. Heating is more than satisfactory. Ease of use with heat control on back of unit, and on and off with remote. You can also just use the flame feature, during warm weather. Really makes a cozy atmosphere . You will enjoy this the minute you plug it in.
