I have a fireplace insert that I burn for heat all winter long. About once a week I have to empty the built up hot ashes in it and start over. This can create a big mess of ash dust everywhere. I have tried a lot of things to solve this problem including ash cans with lids, a towel over the bucket as I put the ashes in etc. etc. I thought this was a good idea and I looked at this one (about $37 with tax) and the Ash Dragon which is about $80. Both seemed like a lot of money since the metal dust pan I have been using is only about $7 at Smart and Final but I decided to try this one.
On the plus side:
1. The metal of the ash box itself seems sturdy enough.
2. The shape about 3 inches high and 12 inches wide is a good size and shape for most wood stoves, fireplaces ans inserts.
3. With the lid open the height is about 6 inches but that is towards the back of the box so that also works and it has a little wood handle for closing the lid when its full. Also good.
4. The size minimizes the number of scoops required to clean out all the built up ashes.
5. Since it is metal the ashes can be hot when removed and you don't have to wait for them to be completely cold.
6. It minimizes ash dust but does not totally eliminate it.

On the down side:
1. The handle screws into the box metal that is only reinforced with a washer. This does not feel very sturdy to me.
2. Where a dustpan is balanced when full by placing the handle at the top and tapering to the sides of the pan to reinforce the pan, this ash box has the handle in the back center of the weight with nothing to balance it and hold the weight except the handle and metal washer. This makes it very awkward to use.

This ash box fits perfectly in our fireplace insert to safely clean the ashes with no mess. Before this, we would shovel the ashes in a bucket and then get dust all over the walls, mantle and ceiling. Now there is no need for the bucket, as the ash box contains all the ashes and we carry it safely and cleanly outside the house.

I love the concept. The handle does not stay tight and also bends. Can't see it lasting very long. The concept is fantastic. BUT, it needs to be higher/taller/larger. I end up having to pull it back and using the shovel to push the ash back into the box. Then the handle bends.

Works as advertised, taking a huge bite of ash and coals and keeping the dust inside the stove. I can usually clean the QuadraFire 4300 Step Top stove in one or two scoops, and that's after burning for three or four days. Very happy with this product.

Cleaning ashes out of our woodstove used to spread ashes all over the house. This ash box eliminated that problem. I use a small metal hand/garden rake to gently push the ashes and coals to the back of the stove, then scoop up a box full of ashes and take them outside to dump them into my ash container. No more ashes in the air or house. My only issue was that the handle connection point is not heavy enough metal to keep from bending. I would suggest large fender washers to replace the smaller washers provided, to spread out the weight stress, however I have not made that alteration because the ash box is working well for me using caution to keep it from bending further.

We have an old stove that doesn't have an ash trap so we have to scoop all the ash out. When we scooped it out and dumped it in the bucket, ash went everywhere and covered everything! We've been using this for a few weeks and I definitely notice the difference. There is still some ash but it is mostly just in the room where the stove is, not all over the house.

I scoop the ash up, close the lid inside the stove, and then step outside to dump the ashes in the bucket.

For the price you can not go wrong. Works great. Helped reduce the dust created when removing ashes. We now scoop the ashes closed the little door and dump the ashes in the ash bucket outside.
