Duralabs Mission: A better firelog. Duraflame has long been known for manufacturing the best performing firelogs on the market. One of the important benefits of replacing the petroleum waxes with an all natural wax formulation is that now Duraflame firelogs perform even better. They light faster and burn with better flames than any other brand. Duraflame scientists are constantly evaluating new raw material resources and engineering solutions to improve the quality of our products, and is one of the few companies in the hearth products industry that uses sophisticated in-house emissions testing equipment to regularly evaluate and reduce emissions from its products.

I love Duraflame logs, and have many happy memories from childhood of a crackling fire made from Duraflame color logs (burns with festive, colorful flames). We'd all snuggle up by the fireplace and talk about our day, or just kick back and be lazy and enjoy the warmth and colors of the fire. Duraflame color logs are now "Pink with a Purpose" - 2% of all sales, up to $75,000.00, will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Duraflame is a privately held, family owned company that has been in the firelog business for more than 40 years.
Duraflame offers a variety of firelogs - 6 and 5 pound firelogs, crackling firelogs (more robust flames with crackling sounds), Color Logs and Any Fire (the most versatile at 3 pounds, can be used indoors or out). They also offer a variety of fire starters, charcoal, and specialty products (lighters and matches).
I had the chance to review (OK, technically, since I don't have a fireplace and my mom does, I guess I should actually say "we all crashed in on mom and said, hey, know what we should do :) the newest Duraflame addition - Duraflame Stax, "The Next Generation of Fire". Duraflame Stax are stackable, crackling firelogs that light easier and burn better than wood. Stax can be assembled quickly and easily by placing two logs on the center of your grate in an "X". More logs can be added (just wait about two hours before adding another). I really like the Stax as it puts out quite a bit of heat. You can see Stax on Youtube for instructions and to watch it burn :)

Check out Duraflame's Hot Promos to register to print valuable coupon offers (new ones added monthly), and check your local newspaper on January 17 for savings on Stax Logs in the Smart Source Magazine insert.
