Remote should be required for rotating fireplace

It would be just wrong to turn it manually.


As we were saying the other day, we're pretty much suckers for anything with a remote. And when the object it's controlling is a rotating fireplace, it immediately jumps to the top of the list.

But the aptly named "Diva" from Germany's Spartherm simply won't be denied the spotlight as it rotates at will to whatever position desired. Trender says the remote is optional, but come on. Can you imagine having to get up and turn this thing manually? Talk about ruining a Barry White moment.
