I have used the brick type fire starters up till now, usually breaking them into thirds. They almost always worked well in my wood stove, lighting 6 inch diameter split logs with no kindling.

These nuggets seemed to be too small and too light to match that performance. But they are at least as good as my previous fire starters, needing no kindling to start fires in my stove. I place two split logs parallel to each other with an inch or two between them where I place one of these fire starters. On top of these I place one or two more split logs at an angle. So far only one fire starter has been all I need to get a good fire going.

*** Update 1/20/2012 *** I've now used these while camping in addition to in my woodstove. And they still consistently start a fire with little or no kindling. They burn long enough to start reasonably dry split logs which are properly stacked. Once in awhile I've needed two but usually one is enough.

These have worked fantastic for me. This past winter I started burning a fire about every week in a firepit. After being frustrated with wood that wasn't totally dry and running through piles of newspaper and cardboard, I broke down and bought a case of these firestarters.

These things are really nice. They take a little while to get lit while holding them, but once lit they don't go out and they burn a really long time (at least 10 minutes, seems like more). They smell just like candles when you light them which is nice (no chemical smell).

The shape is really smart too. The half-sphere allows you to light the "edge", tilt it down a little to make sure it is caught, and then set it round-side-down. You can't smother the flame this way.

Because the wood I'm using isn't totally dry, I usually require one to get the kindling started and then another later to get it roaring. But it sure beats the heck out of running through all that newspaper and cardboard! And with dry wood you would have no problem getting it roaring with just one.

Great product, great price.

I bought these mainly because I read on the box of firestarters I was currently using (bought them at Walmart) that they weren't to be used indoors! I was using them to start my woodstove! These little domed nuggets are nice. I do have to say that they don't start up in a flash. You have to give them a good 10 seconds to ignite. I use kindling in a tee-pee fashion on top of the nugget and I have a fire in no time!

How to start a fire in a wood stove:
1. Scoop a line of ash from the middle of the stove (for air circulation)
2. Add a single nugget and light it
3. Add a log behind the nugget; in front of it and one diagonally across the top (careful not to put out the nugget)
4. Leave the stove door cracked for the first 10-20 minutes

Be warm...

I've used Lightning Nuggets for a couple of years now and they work great both for an indoor fireplace, and an outdoor fireplace. For a standard fireplace, probably 30" wide or so, you'll need two. A few pieces of kindling on top, your hardwood, and you're all set. Just remember to position them flat side up, or they'll take a little bit longer to light. All around, a good product worth the money.

These work quite well and I've used them for a long time. They're better than sooty fatwood starters, or those stinky chemical packs.

Lightning Nuggets are a must for a cold start on a high efficiency wood stove. When placed properly in a cocoon of splits, the nuggets produce a strong blaze in minutes, without needing kindling, bellows, or relights. Plus, there is no chemical-laden newspaper smoke. With a high burning temperature, they make a draft that pushes through negative pressure in a chimney that would crush a lesser fire starter. They even will start poorly-seasoned wood with aplomb. Finally, starting with the the nuggets will help get your stove up to temperature quickly, producing the most efficient burn. If you love Jack Frost, do not buy Lightning Nuggets.

I have tried various ways of starting fires in my fireplace & these little nuggets are my favorite. They're quick, too. I place 2 of them right on the grate spaced evenly in between 2 pieces of wood & light them.(Note: if your grate has really wide spaces then these will fall through!) Then I place another piece of wood at an angle across the 1st 2 pieces of wood where the flames from the nuggets can reach it. That's it...nice fire in minutes. (Note: place the nuggets round side down or you won't be able to light them easily!) The most important factor in how easy your fire will be to get going is the dryness of the wood. Don't expect these little starters or any others to get a good fire going if your wood is too damp!
