This one really works. Every time! 2 sheets of newspaper will start your charcoal in record time. It is much bigger than the ones I have used in the past and is made of heavier metal. The design draws the fire up into the charcoal and they are ready to cook on in about 20 minutes. I cook out 3-5 times a week (or more) so I will be using it a lot. It will pay for itself many times over.
Why didn't I buy this thing sooner?!?!?!?! Not only does my food NOT taste like lighter fluid but the charcoal is ready in like 10 minutes!! The first time I used it I had to add more charcoal because I was used to having to wait like 1/2 hour for the lighter fluid to burn off and the charcoal to be "ready" AWESOME PRODUCT!!! Highly recommend to anyone that will listen :)
Super product every BBQer should own. Makes starting and getting great coals very easy, with no lighter fluid!
What a fantastic purchase, this makes grilling so much more enjoyable and by making it faster and having the coals evenly distributed temperatures. I would highly recommend this for the upcoming grilling season. O yes one more thing this completely eliminates lighter fluid and the taste of it as well!
good product at a good price.......... used it several times used two sheets of newspaper as directed, charcoal was burning in less than ten minutes, great product, easy to use.
Rolled two sheets of newspaper and put paper under chimney. Poured charcoal in then lite with two matches.The chimney worked great!
A lot of years I dealt with the lighter fluid smell and taste,Not anymore! The Weber Chimney is Awesome! At first I didn't think it was going to work with just 2 sheets of a small town news paper,I stuffed it in the bottom and poured charcoal in the top and lit it up. Smoked a bit and I thought I may have to try again but no it had lit the charcoal and was all ready to use in 10 minutes. Very impressed with this,Seen the littler ones for less but they matched the price CHEAP! Paid an little extra and got a well made and Weber quality Chimney was well worth it plus. Who needs Lighter Fluid again? Not this one! Urged for anyone who uses Charcoal to get one of these. The Taste of the food is way better too.
Works well for getting coals ready for my Weber Smokey Mountain but I need another one for when I light charcoal for my grill, since this chimney only holds so much...and I usually use more coal with the grill. Yes, I'm going to buy a second chimney Most any paper will work in the bottom. I have used the paper used to hold the charcoal (charcoal bag)... beats recycling, since you use the charcoal bag (after it's empty) to get the chimney lit Weber also makes some nifty paraffin cubes you light and set under the chimney instead of using paper, to get the coals lit. I used one the other day and highly recommend you have some in arrears, in the event you don't have paper to start the chimney
I don't grill very often so having a hulking propane thing around has no appeal. I was skeptical about having the coals ready in 20 minutes and was pleasantly surprised that a few sheets of newspaper and one match turned into a heap of hot coals in about 15 minutes. I use wood coals instead of charcoal, not sure if that makes any difference.
A chimney starter gets rid of the need for lighter fluid, avoiding that nasty taste. Just put it on the grill as the picture shows, stuff newspaper underneath, fill the top part with coals, and light it up. Reduces wait time as well.
This product works. I am very satisfied with this item. Why pour petroleum over your food cooking source? Use good charcoal.
This product is great. With only two sheets of newspaper the charcoals are ready in 5 minutes!! I wish I had known about this product a long time ago. Now I need to figure out what to do with the two bottles of starter fluid I have left and will never use.
Price was excellent for such a well constructed product. Not flimsy and is very safe to use. Works exactly per instructions and charcoal is lit completely giving you an even cooking and even heat. Price is halt of what you expect to pay for this brand name and quality. GET ONE OR TWO NOW, YOU WON;T REGRET IT!
We have the weber one touch silver grill and this chimney is the complement for the grill, just put some newspaper in the bottom and the charcoal, in 20 min you going to have charcoal ready to cook...
Weber is high quality, and the chimney starter just makes grilling that much better and easier. No need for lighter fluid anymore! Gets the charcoal going quicker and more evenly. Definitely worth the small amount of money for this item.
Works great for fast coal starting and if u have a side burner on grill it works easier then newspaper!
This unit brings charcoal to a "ready" status faster even than lighter fluid! Load the chimney with as many coals as you like, stuff a little newspaper, tinder, or what-have-you under the thing to light, strike a match and within a few minutes, you have a whole batch of perfectly-lit coals ready to pour into your grill. We use it camping; it makes perfect coals to use with our dutch oven. Top quality, sturdy & built to last.
This item will pay for itself by the end of summer by not buying lighter fluid. Starts coal simply by placing wadded newspaper under starter and within 20-30 min coals are ready to use.
I would have never believed that this thing would ignite charcoal with some crumpled up news paper shoved in the bottom. No chemicals to start fire AMAZING
This chimney starter is very easy to use and takes the worry away about struggling to get the charcoal to burn. It is ready in about 5-10 minutes.
My only disappointment was that the chimney was dented. I had driven out of my way to pick it up and did not want to come back for a replacement so just went ahead and accepted it.
