Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Not very good.
I bought two bottles of this starter. I might have purchased a bad batch. It takes a LOT of this stuff to get my pellet burning stove going. The Imperial Firestarter gel from Lowes is better, easier and uses less. Both my wife and daughter said the same thing. I've been using the pellet stove for 20 years so this is not my first time. Gel from both bottles performed the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaveSAR great for helping to start fires
I use gelled fire starter on a fire starter block or kindling to get the fire going. To provide enough flame for these materials to catch fire. It doesn't work well directly on a large log. It also needs a match or flame to catch fire. So for my hiking emergency fire starting kit I use a flint to ignite char cloth which ignites a cotton ball with gelled fire starter. This is when my Soto torch or matches to light fire starter on tinder fail.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cold Probably the least effective gel I've ever purchased.
Looks like you get a lot for the money, but you need to use more and even then it's not likely to work. Go buy something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ravy great for starting wood pellets
I use this to light my wood pellets in my fire place. easy to use and control. The only bad side I have found is that you can't put the gel on the pellets a head of time due to the fact it will soak in to the pellets and becomes useless. Besides that awesome product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jgoldsberry I just love this stuff.
The firewood I bought this year is just a littler green, making it hard to start. This makes it easy to start even wood that is not completely seasoned. It burns at a comparatively slow rate and does not just flame up the minute it hits a flame so it makes it safer to use. I split a cord of firewood with my neighbor and I bought them so too since the wood is not dry enough to make the fire easy to start.
Yes I would recommend this to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by genedude Works great to start coal fire.
This product, when mixed with cowboy charcoal (hardwood lump charcoal) burns hot enough to light anthracite coal in a coal stove. Anthracite coal has an ignition temperature of around 900 deg F.
Does not flare up, so is safe to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conkeeper89 Excellent product, lights fast and easy
Simply use a tablespoon or so and light. No flare ups or offensive odor. Works on all types of pellets, wood, etc.
