Customer reviews30 Minute Assy Truth in Advertising - Not Really
The first big disappointment came on opening the instruction book. The information on Amazon's website says this unit is designed for the small 1 Propane canisters, you CAN use the larger ones with an add on regulator and hose. Well - the first thing you see when you open the instructions is a very visible well laid out insert that tells you that the unit will NOT work well with the 1 tanks, they will freeze up after about 25 minutes of use and strongly recommends NOT using them and buying the extra hose and using a large tank. WOW Had I known that, I probably would have made a different decision. Ok, so moving on to the assembly. The instructions were not the WORST I have seen, but not by much. The drawings are misleading, the instructions leave out key information and are oversimplified. The wrench provided to use with the assembly is of very poor quality and nearly useless. I am an Engineer and routinely build things for myself, so it was not much of a reach for me to figure out how this went together. I can easily see where someone without a similar background could get into trouble really quickly. So after making the additional purchase of the extra hose, I got the unit started up and working. It does provide heat, but if there is even the slightest breeze, it is ineffective in an open area. So, all in all, as long as we have a calm night with only a bit of a chill, it will probably be useful, but in a limited way. Not a big fan of this product.
