A Very Happy Customer
I have two grills and have a Weber chimney starter that I really like for my larger grill. I bought the Weber Compact chimney starter for my smaller kettle grill because it uses less charcoal. This is exactly what I needed. I wish I had bought it sooner. This starter is excelent quality I would highly recommend it for lighting smaller amounts of charcoal.

too small, the area underneath is too small to ignite regular briquettes, the area above doesn't hold enough briquettes, construction is okay (they used screws to hold the handle and unit together instead of pop rivets which rusted), design is poor!

Hello! We're sorry to learn of your disappointment with our compact chimney starter. It sounds like you may be more interested in our regular sized chimney starter, part # 7416. Thanks.

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.

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..

Nice but much smaller than expected. I hope because it is Weber brand that it will last longer than the last one we had.
