If you barbeque or cook at all with charcoal you'll wonder what you did without one of these. Makes hot coals fast. Produces hot coals in 10 to 15 minutes. Made of galvanized steel. 6 1/2" diameter and 12" high
Barbecuing has never been easier with the Lodge charcoal chimney starter. Rather than spending time standing over the grill trying to maintain a fire, this efficient tool allows the outdoor chef to ready the barbeque in about 15 minutes. Simply place two crumpled pieces of newspaper in the bottom section below the grate, fill the top section with the desired number of briquettes, and light the paper through the vents at the bottom. Once the coals are hot, pour them into a charcoal grill or Dutch oven, and get ready to barbeque. This quick and easy method eliminates the need for lighter fluid, a dangerous pollutant that also leaves food tasting of the substance. Made from durable, heavy-gauge aluminized steel, the 12-inch tall, 6-1/2-inch wide starter has a heat shield to protect the wooden handle from getting hot. No assembly necessary; one-year warranty. --Lea Werbel

It fits enough coals to completely cover the lid of a larger, 12" dutch oven - with a small pile for the underside as well. For most ordinary dinner "grillings" on a standard-sized grill, this probably provides the perfect number of coals for cooking a half-dozen burgers and a few hot dogs.
You have to pay attention as your coals are getting lit...the paper burns off quickly...then not much activity for about 4-5 minutes...then steady heating/ashing for 4-5 minutes...then if you let it go too long, the next 5 minutes or so will see your bottom coals pretty much incinerated and wasted. Not a big deal...you just have to pay some attention to it and not walk away for 15+ minutes.
