Travelmate portable fireplace

travelmatefireplace.jpg

The Travelmate fireplace is shaped like a briefcase to impart the notion of portability, complete with handle. Wherever you need a smokeless fire, the Travelmate is there: the dentist’s office; a picnic on an oil-sodden beach; trudging up a craggy castle’s approach with your fellow villagers, fashionable pitchfork in hand.

Although the product page does not specify, I suspect the Travelmate uses the same alcohol gel used by other smokeless fireplaces. Magnets hold glass sides in place; remove the glass to light the fire, then replace it for safety’s sake.

Unica Home will part with one for just $3,300, plus shipping.

    i like how the handle is directly above the flame for maximum hand burnery if you pick it up after it’s been on a while
