      42" Sideline Elite Fireplace

      We purchased the 42" Sideline Elite because it had the features we wanted and fit the opening for our existing gas fireplace. The unit arrived quickly, but had a problem with the glass panel that wouldn't easily come out. They immediately replaced the unit. I installed the replacement unit and we're completely pleased with both Touchstone as a company and with their fireplace.
