the smell!!

These are great for starting your fire but the smell off them is awful so they have to be kept in the garage or the entire house will stink of fire lighters. Mine always seem to come packed in with my food too

Perfect firelighters

I have a multi-fuel stove that needs nothing but a few bits of scrunched up paper, a couple of bits of kindling and a log to get going. These firelighters would be a complete waste in such a stove. Elsewhere in the house I have small open fireplace that is barely big enough to put kindling on and can only really be used with coal. These Quickstart firelighters are absolutely ideal for this open fire. A bed of coal, firelighters and a bit more coal on top, light and leave to get going. No hassle at all. I've bought five of these firelighters so far and each time they got the fire going with zero hassle. I don't recognise the issue that another reviewer mentioned about the smell. I haven't noticed any issues with contamination of anything else.

Cleanest, fastest, easiest, foolproof!

Excellent product. I can quickly light a fire every time with just one of these and some wood in our wood burner. I don't even chop or buy small kindling anymore as these burn for 30/45mins. Just put into the stove, stack wood around & on top and light the wrapper..easy. Works every time. Reasonably priced for what it is. Pity it is out of stock!

excellent but beware!

These small firelighters work every time. No fuss no mess no bother. Only bugbear was they were delivered in carrier bags that also contained food!! Made my bread smell like bonfire and even made a bag of crisps stinky too! I contacted Ocado and they refunded cost of food items that were contaminated. Hopefully it won't happen again as i would definitely use these firelighters again.
