Possible 5 Star Rating
Because we had been using an Ecofan on our wood stove for over a year and had good results, we decided to purchase another one to use on our ventless propane stove. It took us awhile to figure out where to place the fan so it would work properly, but we finally figured it out - setting it diagonally and backwards in front of the grill vents. Just a light tap on the blades got it going. I would give this a high rating – 5 stars – if we didn’t have so much difficulty in determining where to place the fan so it would work.

Moves Air Quietly
It is important that you do not approach this fan with the expectation that it will blow air like a regular fan does. It moves it, but it does so silently, and is fascinating to watch.

Pleasant Surprise
I was skeptical about this product, but it really performs as advertised. And it's quiet, too! I have been very happy with my purchase and the way it spreads heat around the room.

Impressive, Energy-Saving Performance
I had a great experience ordering my Ecofan GS and have been more than impressed with what this fan does. It keeps cabin and house rooms warm and saves lots of energy in the process. I would recommend this to anyone.

Uses No Energy to Function
I made the decision to purchase and install this on the gas stove in my sun room to help facilitate the air movement. The room is a good size, with the length measuring twenty feet. To date, the fan has vastly improved the circulation of the room, making it much more comfortable to move about. What amazes me about the Ecofan is that it does not require any energy to run.

Would NEVER recommend it!
It starts by itself SOMETIMES, but NOT often! I cannot tell if it is actually doing what it was suppose to do when it does start.

Does Adequate Job
When weighing the effectiveness of this fan in comparison to the costs of other fans, the lone conclusion one can reach is that it provides good value for the price. I am amazed at how well it works. It requires neither batteries nor electricity; what a bargain!

Can't Recommend It
I’m sorry to say that I can’t recommend this Caframo Ecofan as it isn’t performing the way I thought it would. I can’t tell if the air is circulating. It’s possible my gas stove isn’t getting hot enough for the warm air to circulate.

Works Great 3 Years and Running
I love the reliability of this product. For the last 3 years, it snaps on every time the stove exceeds 100 degrees. It works great, and it's fun to watch the cordless, battery-free wonder do its job.

Perfect For Our Home
Because of the layout of our home, we decided that the most effective way to keep our home warmed would be through a combination of an air tight stove using an electric fan. We had decided to go with this product so that the fan would shut itself down as the fire was in the process of dying out. Even though it does not seem to move a great deal of air, on a whole, the house does seem to be a good bit warmer with it. If you own a stove that gets warmer than 300 degrees, then this fan is not for you.

Good Electric Fan Substitute
When we were in the process of trying to decide what type of blower to get and install it on our free standing gas stove, I decided to go with the Ecofan because it tends to be quieter, as well as is electricity free. I am quite happy to say that it does the job well and has proven itself to be a worthwhile investment.

Runs Very Quiet
What a great fan - especially since it doesn’t need electricity to make it work. We use it on our wood stove and it circulates the heat around the room very well. The only minor problem we have is that it sometimes starts to shake and causes the little loop handle on the back to rattle. Otherwise, it runs very quiet.

Very Quiet Fan
I am amazed at how quiet this fan is while it is running, as well as how it is able to move air out as opposed to up.

Little Pricey
I am quite satisfied with the performance of this product, but it does tend to get a little bit on the expensive side.

Works Wonders
After comparing all the models, my husband chose the Caframo Ecofan to help increase the heat emitted from the small gas stove in our kitchen/family room. Installation was easy as all we needed to do was put the fan on top of the stove and it worked wonders – exactly as described online. It is warming the room by about 10 degrees and is very quiet. My husband is ecstatic and telling everyone that the Caframo Ecofan is now his “favorite gadget.”

Gets the Job Done
We use an oil-drip stove to heat our cabin, so we needed a product for the 150-300 degree heat range. This works great, and you can definitely feel the heat moving throughout the room. Be sure you don't use it with temperatures higher than it was designed for!

Not Enough Air Circulation
Our wood stove is inside a brick enclosure with vents in the brick on either side. Even though the fan is working well on our wood stove, it still doesn’t circulate enough air towards the front as we’d like it to.

Good Performance at Lower Temperatures
I can use my GS model on kerosene heaters, my nordic pot stove, and even and Alladin kerosene lamp because it doesn't need 400 degree heat to work properly. Very practical; check to see what temperature your appliances need.

Worth the Price
My EcoFan GS was a great replacement for the small fan I had tried previously. I can sit 20 feet away from my 150 degree stove and feel perfectly comfortable. While there is not much perceived air flow directly in front of the fan, you know it does its job when you move around the room. I always use the wire handle when moving the fan, since the blades are somewhat fragile. The fan continues to run for 20 minutes after my stove shuts off, spreading the remaining heat. This was a great product, and definitely worth the money.

Beware Heat Limits
This is a great product, but I would recommend two of them, depending on how many cubic feet of air you are trying to heat. Absolutely do NOT use this with temperatures above its label or on a wood burning stove.
