Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Effective fire starter These fire starters are quite effective in my wood stove. No accelerant for using e inside makes it nice. I actually use these, some crumpled up papers and kindling to start my stove. The firestarters last longer than the crumpled papers to give the kindling a longer heating up time. There are 144 squares in the package, and I use 2 per fire, so a good deal! I'll definitely get these again. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Time saver We use just one "square" to help start the fire in our wood stove. We still use newspaper to get the draft going, but we use the Safe-Lite under some small sticks and the front edge of the larger wood. We can go and do other morning tasks, confident that the Safe-lite is going to get the fire going. May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Little Squares These little squares have out performed the others I have tried. They light a lot easier and you use less to get your fire started. With very dry wood I only needed to use one. on a little wetter wood I needed two. I will be using these from now on. a plus side is they actually cost less and you get more which puts a greater savings in your pocket. At first I had my doubts figuring I would use more but actually you use less. You won't be disappointed in these. From now on I will only buy these. Thanks for such a great product January 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome and cheap I use 3 per fire to ensure it starts quick and lights evenly (Could get away with 2 no problem). They light easily, burn well, and get things going. Oh, also 7 dollars cheaper than Amazon. Great deal when you can find them. One more thing - In the time it took me to write this on my phone, I went from lighting too a nice looking fire. Granted, I type slow, but you get the idea. December 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Luck I really like these things and would highly recommend. However, I would call the store and make sure they have them in hand. The website said there were 15 in stock where I usually purchase but when I went to pick up the two boxes they were no where to be found. After 30 minutes of 3 staff and me looking - everyone threw in the towel. January 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! Have tried many fire starters and this works great. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lights easily & burns long enough to start scrap lumber burning. The 3/8" thick x 1-1/2" squares break apart easily, burn long enough to start my scrap dimensional lumber burning with little or no kindling. I actually got one to light, one time, with just a spark when my long-reach lighter didn't light. I use them in my wood shop box stove that takes up to 20" long pieces. February 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great when you can get them they work great if you can get them my store in Poulsbo is out and they have not been able to get more and its winter January 10, 2013
