A: Food grade wax so yes
A: The box says " . . made from a pitch-blend wood mixed with a small amount of food-grade wax."
A: Hi Marie-Yes, the Lightning Nugget Firestarters contain food grade parafin wax.
A: I have no idea. I use them to start my woodstove. The ingredients says: pitch wood, pine scent and food-grade wax. Since the combustible is food grade, I'd think it would be fine to use for a pizza oven. I would check with the directions you got with you pizza oven, first. Make sure you follow the manufacturer's directions, since any warrantee you have on the oven will no longer be valid if you do something contrary to their instructions.
A: Yes, non toxic. Clean burning.
A: They are made of wood chips. Not sure of the bonding agent that holds it together. The wood chip are small, but when look at the item all you see is the chips. The size is about the size of a golf ball cut in half. They work great. Recommend them.
A: Looks like wax and sawdust/wood chips
A: I believe it is made from compressed sawdust. I have used them for many years and wouldn't know how to start a fire without them. They burn for at least 15 minutes and will always get to fire in my wood stove going very well.
A: Made from sawdust and wax
A: These are basically sawed wood remnants with some sort of wax or paraffin compressed into half golf ball sized pieces. They seem to work fairly well but if you have a window I would keep them in the middle of your fire box as they will turn your window black if placed too close. Not a big deal as it cleans off the window easily but who want a blackened window. I also spread a mound of my shredded paper docs in there and place this on top and start it with a propane or map gas torch as you will burn your fingers is you use a Bic lighter. This works the best for my insert..
A: 2 or3 will have the fire roaring in minutes.
A: We don't have a wood stove...just a standard fireplace insert. But 99% of the time we use only one firestarter nugget and 3-4 thin pieces of kindling. Depending on how dry your wood is, you may be able to get buy with just one firestarter and no kindling.
A: Customer reviews indicate that most people use 2 in a wood burning stove.
