I have used these before and when I went to the hardware store here in CA to get more they were out. It seems that they only carry them in the Winter time. So I got frantic because these things work great. I found them on Amazon and ordered 3 boxes! One square lights a fire almost everytime in my Lopi wood stove. I have used them to light fires in my fireplace too. They light very quickly and burn long enough to get dry wood blazing. I highly recommend these to anyone who has a wood stove or fireplace and hates getting a stubborn fire started. This product is guaranteed to give you a 99% shot as success in starting your fire the first time everytime.

I have actually tried every fire starter product on the market. This one is the one to use. They light easily everytime. Unlike some of the others, they are small enough to wedge between logs without falling off the fire stack before they are consumed. I build my fire using two of the squares approximately 4 inches from each end of my fire stack. Stack the secondary logs on top of the primary logs, light the starters and walk away. If you are looking for a clean effort free way to start a fire, you can't go wrong with these.

Please see user Pix

I bought this product because I wanted a fast way to start a log fire in my fireplace. I was tired of using newspaper to light up my fire logs and those "anytime log" can be expensive.
The bottom line is that this product works and I am very satisfied. However, I gave it a 4 star due to the Pros and Cons and I am listing below (in no particular order).

Pros:
-Affordable when compared to different fire starter methods
-Individual Pieces are breakable. You only use what you need.
-Plenty of material There are a total of 144 squares. there are 12 brick. Each brick has 6 squares by 2 squares pieces

Cons.
-Packaging Material can be better. Since this item will last you for several months, it should come in a plastic or metal box. instead it came with a thin paper box. it will fall apart after a few uses
-Each square is thin. it is about .33 inches thick
-Each Square will only last 2-3 minutes

In Summary this product is exactly what I wanted. It works and is affordable. Due to the fast burn time, I usually use 2 squares and this is more than enough to get a fire started on my firewood. Also it helps to stack your firewood in a manner that you will promote a "chimney effect" so that air can be rushed/drawn from the bottom to the top of the firelogs. I put the squares on the bottom of the fireplace and stacked my firewood like a pyramid.

I hope this helps

I bought a BIG GREEN EGG a couple months back but really wasn't happy about the way I had to start it. I thought I'd try these RUTLAND FIRE STARTERS after reading multiple reviews, and I am absolutely satisfied with them. I actually only use one square and break it up in three pieces, nestle them in the lump charcoal and the fire is ready in no time. This is the only reason I bought them but this is what I'll continue to use. I have recommended these to several co-workers and they were all impressed as well. One other comment, these have "NO FUEL SMELL" before you light them or even after they're burning.....GREAT PRODUCT. Will buy again.

The title says it all. I prefer "fatwood" because it works really well and is only wood.

The Rutland fire starter is the same as the Green Egg's starter at about 1/3 the price. I can tell no difference.

...for my corn stove. Sometimes they are hard to find, so I buy 5 or 6 boxes to get through the winter! Other products I have tried (such as gel) don't get hot enough to trigger the feed mechanism; or they leave too much residue and clog the air holes in the burn box; or they are too big & chunky, and end up blocking the feed chute and the fire gets smothered; or they are crumbly and messy (cedar starters and coffee logs). Fatwood is too long for the burn box, expensive, and doesn't stay lit when I turn on the stove fan. I haven't used the Rutland starters much for camping and I don't have a wood stove, but I kept a box in my car last year and several times I was able to give a dozen or so to friends--they loved them too! I usually need 5 squares to start my stove, but (without shipping) it's still the most economical option I've found, and you probably only need one or two for a wood fire. A friend of mine splits his squares with a knife, so they're even more economical, and he can get the fire going in several places at once. You can do that, fray a corner or even twist the square so there is more rough surface, and it will catch more easily esp. under wet or windy conditions. These will save you lots of bother with paper and kindling. Good survival/emergency item.
