Anywhere Fireplace

Ventless Fireplaces

All Fired Up

You never hear about folks curling up beside the radiator or gathering ‘round the space heater. It takes firelight to create ambiance like that. But obviously, not every home has a fireplace. That’s where Anywhere Fireplace, which was founded by Madi Ferencz and her son Peter de Voogd, comes in. With this self-contained unit, you don’t need a chimney or vent to enjoy a warm fire. There’s no gas or electric hookup required either.

The tabletop models include the Lexington, with its high-gloss paint finish; the Metropolitan, which pairs tempered glass and brushed stainless steel; and the Empire, a dramatic stainless-steel form with polished stones surrounding the flame. Most models burn bio-ethanol fuel, which is made from renewable plant resources and doesn’t give off any smoke, gas, soot, or ash. (One liter of fuel will burn for about 5 hours.) The Empire and Oasis models use a Gel Fuel that imitates the sound of a crackling fire (one can burns for up to 2.5 hours).

What sets these fireplaces apart is how easily (and affordably) they can create the perfect mood for a romantic evening, a gathering of friends, or unwinding after a long day. If you’ve always coveted a fireplace but lack a chimney, this is an elegant, eco-friendly alternative that’s all ambiance, and no fuss.

    Hi Daily Grommet community, my name is Amy Bernstein and I'm stepping in for Anywhere Fireplace today. I'm excited to hear your questions and feedback.

    Minimalist. Gorgeous. I love the wall model.

    My question, Peter is about safety. If you're mounting something on the wall like this that gives off heat, does there need to be some sort of heat resistant/fire retardant material behind it? How do you safely store the fuel?

    Did I mention gorgeous?


  • Peter
    2/23/2010 12:39 PM

    Dear Elen,

    I am very happy you find our fireplaces as good looking as we do! The Chelsea fireplace does come with spacers that screw into the back side of the fireplace to keep it approximately 1 inch off the wall. This provides enough space to safely use your fireplace. However you should not mount the fireplace to a wood wall or a wall with wall paper and keep it away from curtains or other flammable materials.

    Click on the link below to open a PDF of the safety and installation instructions for the Chelsea.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    I can't find the cost of the bio-fuel. Is it available at local venues or does it have to be shipped every time from one source?

    Love the daily Gromet...thank you!

    Can the freestanding unit be placed in a fireplace, if so I'm thinking the vent would not have to be open correct?

  • Peter
    2/23/2010 2:28 PM

    Dear Karen,

    In fact many people have purchased the Gramercy (free standing fireplace) and put it in the opening of their existing but non-functioning fireplace. Because the fuel is completely safe for indoor use giving off NO smoke, soot, ash or harmful toxins, you do not need to open the flue. Just enjoy a fire and your fireplace without the mess or work.

  • Amily
    2/23/2010 4:10 PM

    I am wondering if you have any plans to create a Gramercy base that would look like wood logs or like the metal frame we now have to set our logs on in our fireplace - which is where I'd like to put one of your units. For our tastes/decor I'm seeking less of a modern look and more of a rustic backwoods camp kind of visual. I was trying to think of something we could put in front of the base, but would that create a fire hazard? Would appreciate your thoughts on this idea.

  • Peter
    2/23/2010 5:00 PM

    Dear Ann,

    We have thought of a fireplace like you are describing however at this time we currerntly do not have one available and we don't have any coming in the near future. Down the road it is a possibility. Thank you for your comment!


  • janet
    2/12/2013 9:41 PM

    @Peter You didn't answer the 2nd part of Ann's question regarding if it would create a fire hazard to put something rustic looking in front of one of your fireplaces. Please answer as I have the same question.

    It's funny to see some one say That you would never see people gathering around that list. Because, Although Not very practical I have been part of a group that Did gather on a regular basis around A "Kerosun" space hearter.

    It was because I Called it the "Official Fireplace of Paintball" in my comix.

    SO when we gathered It was often around the Kerosun. We also cooked our favorite steaks directly on top of it on many occasions. Which by the way is the perfect temperature to cook steaks on.

    @fred - I bet there was many a paintball battle rehashed around your Kerosun! Great story.

  • Nancy

    Would the Gramercy model tolerate some black polished stones, like the ones used hot stone massage, decorating the inside of the fireplace (yet not on the fire vents), just to give the fireplace a more "zen-like" appearance. If not the black stones, what about small white quartz? Regardless, I am buying one of these today! Just as another follow up question, do you have any idea how many BTUs the Gramercy delivers?

  • Katherine
    Katherine – Grommet Team
    6/4/2010 9:14 AM

    @Nancy - great questions! I am forwarding to Peter so that he can let us all know the answer!

  • Peter
    6/4/2010 1:11 PM

    @Nancy - The Gramercy can definitely use rocks to decorate the top of it. It is not

    advised and you should never place any rocks or any other items on the steel

    burner or over the flame opening slot as this will affect the oxygen intake

    for the fuel and items can fall into the fuel. Should anyone choose to add

    decorative items to the fireplace surrounding, it must be non-flammable. If

    someone wants to use something like glass, they should use fibreglass which

    is tempered and can withstand the heat.

    Due to the ventless nature of the fireplaces themselves, no heat is lost up the flu or vent. Basically each bottle has about 21,000

    BTU of burn, so depending on how much flame you have and how open you adjust

    the dampener the flame will last between 2.5 - 5 hours so you divide the

    amount of time it burns into the 21,000 and you get the BTU output per hour.

    So with the damper fully open and the fuel lasting 2.5 hours, you will get

    8,400 BTU/hour or 4,200/hour if you close the damper a little so the fuel

    burns for 5 hours. These times will vary but these are average times.

  • 7/20/2010 3:40 AM

    does the fire produced by the bio fuel generates heat like to warm a room for winter? and how much does the fire place cost and the bio fuel?

  • vickey navarro

    7/20/2010 3:47 AM

    why the bio fuel is so expensive!

  • Katherine
    Katherine – Grommet Team
    7/20/2010 8:29 AM

    @anonymous - the fireplace will warm a room that is up to 375 sq feet large. @vickey - bio fuel is a clean burning fuel that doesn't give off any ash, smoke or soot.

  • janet
    2/12/2013 9:46 PM

    @Katherine - Daily Grommet Team You conveniently did not answer vickey navarro's question as to why the bio fuel is so expensive...I would like to know too.

  • steve
    8/25/2010 12:18 AM

    **This post has been edited to have a more respectful tone. The concerns the commenter made remain intact:

    It is my understanding that no matter what kind of 'clean-burning' fuel you use, in order for it to combust it requires oxygen which it consumes creating a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Is this approved for sale in this country? What are you using, butane or propane? The open flame is also of a safety concern to me.

  • Peter
    8/25/2010 9:29 PM

    Dear Steve,

    We appreciate getting comments, but we are afraid that you are not familiar with the technology or this product and your comments are totally erroneous and misleading. The recommended fuel, OZOFire™ for the Anywhere Fireplaces is totally clean burning and the only byproduct created when burning OZOFire are water vapor and CO2 (same as given off by plants). There are NO toxins, NO odor, and NO offensive fumes emitted. OZOFire™ was created especially for Indoor bio-ethanol ventless fireplaces and is the safest fuel for you and green for the planet. It is a sustainable Bio-Ethanol fuel specially formulated to provide the cleanest fire possible and complies with all regulations required by U.S. Government Agencies. It has been tested and approved by The Department of Transportation (DOT) and The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) The flame is clean and odorless. OZOFire™ burns efficiently. There is no oily residue left in the tank. Ozofire is a formulated denatured alcohol, not an oil derivative. It even contains an agent called Bitrex™* for Child Safety.

    When open flames are present, whether they are from a candle, gas stove, cigarette lighter or a fireplace, you are correct that caution must be used. We have very explicit directions of what precautions need to be observed. When properly followed, no one needs to worry about the safety of the OZOfire and the Anywhere Fireplaces.

    I looked into your product a little deeper after Steve's little rant. To bad people like him are able to post thing's so easily. But I can say after looking deeper I with out a doubt want one. I am going to get one for my basement, and my bedroom. It would have been better if you listed the price on

    @Robert - I'm absolutely enamored with these fireplaces as well! The price can be seen when you click on the pull-down options...the 'Free Shipping' announcement is taking up the space we usually reserve for displaying the price range. We are excited to be moving, soon, to a new system that won't have these same display limitations, stay tuned!!

    Regarding Steve's post - we do have a policy in place that says that posts disrespectful in tone risk being deleted. We don't want to give an open forum to those making their point in an unpleasant way, I am going to go back and edit his post but rephrase it to keep his concerns intact. Thank you for posting!

    silly question but I'll ask anyway..

    think i can roast marshmallows with these fireplaces?

  • Katherine
    Katherine – Grommet Team
    5/15/2011 11:17 PM

    @roz: That's a fun question! I will reach out to Peter to get his insight, but my instinct is that it wouldn't be ideal for roasting marshmallows. When you're roasting marshmallows you find that hot ember away from the flame to do the job.

  • Peter
    5/17/2011 12:57 PM

    @roz: The fire is safe for this since its only byproducts are water vapor and CO2. It will not do anything bad to your marshmallows or make anyone sick however since these are decorative fireplaces and the stainless steel burners can be hard to clean inside should something drop in it, you may want to avoid doing this since melted marshmallow tends to drip and drop.

  • kathleen
    11/3/2011 12:49 PM

    Am I correct in assuming you can add as much or as little of the fuel as you want, depending on the amount of time you want the fire to burn? If the fire is burning and you choose to extinguish it, will the remaining fuel burn again?

  • Peter
    11/3/2011 3:06 PM

    @kathleen grieve: Yes that is correct however if the fuel is too low you may have a hard time lighting it. If you do extinguish it the fuel does slowly evaporate but can be burned again if there is enough inside it. Please note however because one of the emissions of the burning fire is water vapor, if you extinguish it, there may be the water vapor condensation that forms inside the burner that never escaped and if it falls back down in the fuel, it may dilute the fuel making it hard to re-light if not enough fuel is in the burner.

    Hi Robyn,

    Yes, this a great idea. You should indeed be able to fit the tabletop models inside a regular fireplace, however we suggest that you measure your fireplace first to ensure it will fit.

    Be sure to let us know how it goes. We'd love to hear.

  • Kylee

    The video states the fire gets hot but not too hot. Can this be mounted on a wood paneled wall or is the heat stong enough to cause a fire/ damage?

    Do you know how heavy the mounted version is and if it could be mounted to a partition in a room?


  • Amy
    Amy – Special Guest
    2/12/2013 12:24 PM


    Hi Shoegal,

    Yes, you could hang it on a partition. One of our testers said he could lift it with one hand! The weight is 25 lbs in packaging.

    As far as hanging it on a wooden wall, we wouldn't recommend it as while it's not too hot, it's probably better to stay on the side of caution with an open flame.

  • Jane
    2/12/2013 12:50 PM

    Would you ask the manufacturers what's exactly meant by these fireplaces burning a "biofuel?" if it's plant based, does that mean it's made from corn? I ask because corn, raised by industrial farming techniques that care nothing for topsoil, is being touted as one of the answers to our energy problems when Industrial Corn and Industrial Soy are both a big part of our ever-enlarging problem.


  •  Coleen
    2/12/2013 1:06 PM

    @Jane Vandenburgh Great question and agree with your concerns. Of course, add to that the industrial farming probably means genetically modified and/or Monsanto products which are ruining our environment and they are using unethical practices to harass other farmers. I certainly do not want to support ANY of this. So touting something as eco-friendly needs to address whether it is truly eco-friendly or not, not just non-toxic when you use it.

    Hi Cindy,

    The tabletop fireplaces come in pieces, so you would be able to assemble them without the glass panels. You can also find the installation instructions in the details portion with each fireplace model.

    It's probably ok to use if you have a glass screen as you say in your fireplace, but be sure to have something blocking the flames.

    Hi Sabrina,

    The fire is safe for toasting marshmallows yet since these are decorative fireplaces and the stainless steel burners can be hard to clean inside should something drop in it, you may want to avoid doing this since melted marshmallow tends to drip and drop.

    I would recommend using a regular fireplace for better taste and texture of the marshmallows as well.
