This was much more effective than the homemade starter I had crafted. Lights quickly and stays lit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AJ Great Charoal Starter for Small Grills
Being single, I wanted a quality charcoal starter for my small grill.
Followed directions and worked great first time.
Love the fact of being able to use regular charcoal with none of the petroleum odor or taste of the easy to light briquettes.
Ordered on line and had shipped free to my local store. Couldn't have been easierA

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DutchOven A simply awesome tool, just got better!
The ease of use, simplicity and convenience of the Original charcoal Chimney Starter, is well known, and has been around for years. With the latest creation of the COMPACT Charcoal Chimney, cooking life is even better. It is an ideal size for traveling, or using around the house, when you don't really need 100 pieces of charcoal burning. It is the perfect size for my Weber, Little Smokey grill, which we use camping. It is an ideal tool, when cooking on your Camp Dutch Ovens. Or if you are grilling on the bigger grills, but really don't need allot of coals to do the job. Compact is the way to go. When pack space is a concern, and you don't need a ton of charcoal to cook your meals, this is perfect tool for the job. I highly recommend it. The compact model is about 1/3 the size of the original chimney starter, and half the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mary Great little item
I can't imagine how I have made it through my entire grilling life so far without one of these little chimney starters. It works amazing and the size is perfect for my mid-sized weber kettle. I have been able to switch from charcoal pre-soaked with lighter fluid to standard coals, a big savings and much healthier. I like to light the paper in the bottom and feed the coals a few at a time. A few handfuls and it quickly lights all of the coals and they're ready to go in no time. It has seriously diminished my desire for a propane grill because this has made it so easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rbalbro Ideal size for starting charcoal for Camp Dutch Ovens.
I already have the Big Daddy Chimney starter, but I wanted a smaller version so as to carry in a toolbag.
This small version is ideal, just as easy to start the charcoal, it doesn't require too much newspaper to fuel the fire.
I did't have to buy a minimum to get free shipping like at Amazon. I picked it up at my local Homedepot.
Would definitely recommend the tool and HomeDepot as a source for this Chimney..
