Garrison Oil Heater
Not enough Heated Space
I really did not like this product. I am not a fan of any oil based Electric Heater since the heat they generate is just not enough compared to that of a coil heater. For that cozy feeling I may as well just use the fireplace and conserve my electricity.

I bought this in 2003 and it works like a charm. The price has dropped considerably since then as I paid $80 with tax. Just dust it off after it's been sitting all summer. Easy to move around, even on carpets.

I purchased this from Canadian Tire a couple of winters ago and it is not only still working but still working as well as the day I bought it. It is a total workhorse and has helped keep my oil bill in check. Nice being warm in the winter and this heater does the job. When the weather is above the freezing point (but still cold) I don't even need to use oil, since I just keep it in the room with me. When the outside temp dips below zero, I still keep it on to warm the room I'm in but the oil furnace is on to keep the pipes in the rest of the house from freezing. My electric bill went up but not as much as it would have cost to heat my home to a comfortable level with oil. Would recommend this to a friend.

stay away from this product
The first one broke within one year, the exchanged one broke again within one year. I had two of these and none of them was working more than a season. Now I am out of warranty.
Don't buy anything from this brand. A manufacturer who is unable to make a product that would last a year should not survive in the market.

A lot of heat!
I bought this to heat my addition to my mobile home-was impressed at how it warmed up the unit within 24 hours after being closed up for the winter. Quiet and had no trouble with odor. We had -14 with the windchill here the first night and my only other heat source was a small ceramic heater.

Worst heater purchase ever
I purchased this heater about 2 years ago and it has already stopped working. Would highly recommend a similar heater made by KAZ for Honeywell. Paid about the same $ for it and it is still going strong 5 years later

Very Good Heater. Set it and go.
Over many years I have used long electric heaters, ceramic heaters, electric heaters with fans and finally this oil filled convection heater. The convection heat is the best of all. In spite of a few reviews mensioning an oil leak, I've had 2 that never leaked. I found the controls easy to understand and use. The heater is used to suppliment heat in my insulated sun room that is left open to the house but the sunroom has no heating from the furnace. Once in a while when the weather gets warmer or colder for a prolonged spell the heater is adjusted otherwise it is just left alone. My first oil filled heater lasted 3 years, which is less than I had hoped but that is longer than any of the other electric heaters that I,ve tried.

Canadian Tire replaced no problem
My local store replaced unit no problem even though I didn't have receipt. They looked up purchase using my bank card. With this one I will not use the OFF l,ll,lll dial to turn unit off but rather will unplug it. That dial does seem fine on this one. Got to give Canadian Tire credit for their ease of exchange.

Frapped after 3 months
Wattage dial got grindy and few days later smoked up (fuse?) and whole unit failed. What is it with these Chinese built heaters? Last year my Chinese built electric fireplace only lasted 6 months. Sad but I have to pull out my 25 year old American built heaters to fill in the gap. Avoid like the plague.

Terrible Product - broke within a year
This is a cheap heater for a reason.
It worked alright for one winter, and was no longer working by the start of the next winter. So in total, got about 5 months of use out of this terrible heater. And with a one-year warranty, they kind of know it's a terrible product. Don't buy this - spend more, get a better product. Also, when it's hot, it's actually quite difficult to move because the handle isn't very deep and puts the whole thing off balance when you move it.
