Take the stress out of lighting the stove or BBQ - so good I have since re-ordered!
14 September 2017
These firelighters are great (I even re-ordered)!
If you have a log burner/wood stove or BBQ, natural firelighters are the way to go. You shouldn't use chemical lighters in BBQ's or near food and personally I hate the toxic smell of lighting the wood stove with chemical lighters and can't imagine it's 'healthy' to have such fumes in your house.
These all natural lighters are made with a straw-like/wood strip material, wound and wax coated.
It's worth noting, I have found cheaper versions of 'eco' firelighters from Home Bargains and B&M, however, before you rush out and buy them, the quality difference plays an important role in whether to choose this product.
Whilst the Home Bargains version is £1.99 for 40, they are very loosely wound and less dense - therefore they burn for a shorter time. This results in the need to use more of them to get your fire going (especially if you have anything other than 'bone dry' kindling).
Last night, I used 6-7 to light our stove at home whereas with the Feniks lighters, I would use 2 at most (which is why I re-ordered the feniks lighters and am writing this review)!
Therefore, these firelighters, whilst more expensive per box, are actually cheaper in the long run as to how many fires you can light with them.
