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.

#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. DO NOT REFILL THE BASKET unless you want ALOT of heat, I did this the first time I had coals and I had an orange stovepipe 3' above the stove, I had to open the stove door and let it cool down (where the no popping of embers like wood does comes in handy,) Now I just put 2-3 scoops in, stir and let her burn.
#6 I think this is a very viable option for us to burn wood pellets when we want a clean source of fuel without having to go drudge the firewood in full of bugs and snow and ice. Bear in mind I really WANTED this to work so I did not have to pay BIG $ for a new pellet stove that would not work if the power is out. Wood pellets DO take more pampering to make it work effectively so if you just want to throw some logs in and walk away it may not be a good option for you but I only burn on weekends and at night if I am motivated so it works very well for me.
On edit, after 3 months of use my basket is as it was when unboxed, I dont know what the reviewers that said theirs melted or "fell apart" were using to start the fire with, possibly an acetlyene torch? Anyway works great for me, I leave the woodstove door open as these do not pop embers like firewood and the radiant heat warms the area nicely.
Pros: no dragging dirty wood in the house, much cleaner, stacks easily.
Cons: would like it to be a little deeper so it holds more pellets.
Other: It takes some trial and error to figure out the right damper settings and loading for your particular stove. Once you get that figured out, it's good.
Very pleased with this and wish I'd seen it years ago. If you don't have a pellet stove, this is a good alternative.
