    That is the question.

    I have the log set but I think I like the look of the stove better without them. I have never burned the stove without the logs and I am wondering if they make any kind of operational difference. I guess time will tell.

    Decoration only.

    They look good for about 4 hours, then just get loaded with ash and make it harder to clean.

    Johnny....
    One of the nice things about the way that you "pellet" is that you have a kick-ass stove with a kick-ass pellet. You put your pellets in and enjoy the stove without any real issues and/or mess. When your stove is running, you have a nice strong, vibrant flame that moves and shakes like Shakira's hips. That kind of flame is beautiful and something that is worthy of just sitting there and admiring. Do not hide it behind a $250 "fake log option." Just keep that stove clean and your flame will be a flame for others to envy. Log sets are to pellet stoves what pastic surgery is to women.....They are unnatural and unnecessary.

    I use them for decoration only, in the Summer. Otherwise, they just get in the way and the ceramic of the Quad set, eventually fades and cracks. Keep them nice and put them in for Summer curb appeal.
