Product Description

A pellet basket is a metal basket that sits inside a woodstove and burns wood pellets; eliminating the need for electric and natural gas. Pellet baskets are a lower - cost alternative to pellet stoves. Simply place the basket in your wood stove, fill it with wood pellets, light the pellets with gel firestarter. Add more pellets, when needed. Scoop the hot pellets to one side with a metal scoop, add new pellets next to the hot pellets. The hot pellets will ignite the new pellets. Always adjust your flue for a safe working temperature.

It works great and is easy to clean out.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to buying a pellet stove (and less expensive!)

With wood I get a good hot fire that heats the large open room where the stove is located.

First response: There's too much space between the bars. The pellets fall through. It should have been designed with ribs closer together or some kind of screening insert.

Second response: I'm adding a star.
I'm not sure, but the spacing may be necessary for air flow. Besides once the insert sits in the wood stove, the pellets falling through are no big deal. It was my mistake to start by filling the insert outside of the stove. Once it's in, it's meant to stay there to be filled.

I'm satisfied I made the right choice of insert because this one is well made and sturdy. My only complaint is that pellets burn on the low end of my Chimgard thermometer so the heat output is minimal. With wood I get a good hot fire that heats the large open room where the stove is located. So an insert does not equal a pellet stove (which I had in my former house) for heat output.

I bought this to try out in my conventional wood burning stove. I ran about 80 lbs of pellets through it and it did work. It wasn't difficult to light, but sometimes I had to make a second attempt. I wasn't impressed with the heat output for the amount of pellets used, nor the amount of time they would last. If you need to convert to pellets, this will do the job, but if you have access to firewood, I'd stick with that.

Ok, first off I wanted to give an honest review. If you own a woodstove and are on the fence as to buying a pellet stove and dropping $1500+ like I was and hoping for a good honest review before I paid $150 for a basket. I live in an area without alot of trees, my wood supply is sketchy at best, I still want to be able to burn wood when I can get it but want the multifuel option when I can't and I wanted a clean wood supply that my wife does not have to go out and bring in the wood if she does not want to and I am at work.
#1 For those who said this does not produce enough heat, you obviously never really got it going.
#2 Wood pellets in my experience burn HOT and with little ash and NO popping of embers (this is important later).
#3 The pellets are a little harder to get going at first, they rely on the smoke when they burn to help with the combustion (I actually put them out by running the exhaust fan and removing the smoke from the pellets.Remember the smoke is flamable,you have to have an open flame in the stove or you may get a low key but exciting flashover whoosh. Just fyi.
#4 Once you have the top burning you have to STIR the burning ones into the ones under or it will just burn at around 250 degrees from the top down and not make the heat you want, I think this is the step where some give up and say it doesnt work, trust me once the first basket burns down and leaves a glowing set of coals you will have good heat coming from them.
#5 Once you have the coals at the bottom just add a few scoops every hour or so to maintain the burn, again stirring if they do not light off immediately.

Loading it is easy and it holds enough pellets for a good 4 to 5 hour fire. Lighting it was also easy by place fire starter on top.

in my wood burning insert, the pellets require a little extra help from kindling that i lite on top of the pellets for starting a successful burn.
puts a lot of btu s out and achieves 3-4 hour burns.
no melting or warping of steel or welds. very strong.

excellent 10/10 highly recommend!

Not as good as a wood burning stove or an actual pellet stove, this pellet basket was amazing in our fireplace. It did fine by itself. Then, we actually added wood to it once it was going and it performed quite nicely. I wouldn't want to count on it for whole house heating but it was nice to look at and our living room was adequately warmed during a cold spell.
