Over the last 125,000 years humanity has bested its foes, warmed its filthy extremities and cooked its delicious meats using fire. However, Zip firelighters are only a very recent invention, prompting the question, 'How the hell were people lighting fires for that long?' The answer, my friends, is that they were having a pretty crappy time of it all, dicking around with various grades of tinder and kindling before they could get to burning actual sticks. Zip firelighters eliminate the first 3 grades of ignition material and jumps you straight in to stick burning territory on the double.

Such superb value buying in bulk!

I've recently discovered the joys of a multi-fuel burner and was delighted when I saw this bulk buy of a premium fire lighter here for delivery to my door. The price here beat my local supermarket hands down!

These are great at starting my smokeless coal or logs almost immediately. Its quite neat that they come in little plastic type wrappings, all individually wrapped and all you have to do is light the corner of the plastic wrapping and off it goes! They light immediately and with no fuss and get my fire going brilliantly.

Superb! I really do think these are the best I've tried so far, so I heartily recommend them for wood burning stoves and real fires. Very economical and sensibly priced here when buying in bulk.

RECOMMENDED!

Word of warning these burn quick once you set fire too. I bought these for my incinerator, because I needed to get rid of my garden waste, cardboard and other stuff that can't be recycled. These light up very well and can burn lot longer than other brands I have tried. Very good brand, burns well and not bad value either.

I have a smokeless fuel stove to light and wanted firelighters because of the amount of kindling I need to light it. These firelighters work beautifully and I use a lot less kindling to light the stove.

I received my order on time, and with 120 firelighters in it, but they were in 3, not 4 packs as they were stock from a 'special deal'. The outer packing was a larger box that had been cut down. It was not up to Amazon's normal standard. I wrote a review before, but it was not published.

These firelighters definitely do the job they are supposed to do but I do wonder at what price to our health. I am allergic to formaldehyde, and being quite ignorant about chemicals bought these and lit the fire with them. Within a couple of hours my eyelids started to swell and I felt as though I had rubbed chilli powder around them. It happened twice before I finally clicked what it could be, so I did some research and discovered that these type of firelighters release formaldehyde when lit. I have a fairly large airy house and I wasn't sitting on top of the fire once I'd lit it, so I reckon it must release a fair bit. Allergy or not, is that really good for us?

Notwithstanding the above they were dispatched very promptly by the seller and the fire was roaring withing seconds. Just a shame my eyes were also....
