Weber's chimney starter makes starting your charcoal a snap. It also cuts down the amount of time it takes for the coals to get ready. Just load up our extra large cannister full of coals, light up a fire starter or crinkled up newspaper, and set the cannister over the flame. In a matter of minutes the coals will be red hot. Who ever thought it could be so easy?

Tell me if this sounds familiar, I stack a mountain of charcoal over a napkin in a shape of a pyramid. I then douse lighter fluid from the top. I let it rest for a few minutes and then light the napkin. After the initial smoke is gone, I get a large piece of cardboard to fan the pyramid until the top briquette catches fire. Process takes 20 minutes. When I flatten out the briquettes so I can put my grate on, not all the briquettes are burned uniformly so I wait another few minutes for the top large pieces to burn to gray, because I don't want cancer.
No lighter fluid.
No fanning for 20 minutes. The chimney forces air up. I go drink a soda (hate beer) and come back in 20 minutes.
No problems with uniformity. When I dump the coals, they are all equally gray. Every "spot" in my weber is burning equally hot.
Verdict: Weber is known to be the best mainstream brand there is to bbqing. They did not disappoint on their Chimney quality. This will actually save you money because you burn away way fewer briquettes to get a good fire. And you don't ever need fluid again.
It's held up very well over the last year. It's gotten a bit black (as would be expected) but it has not rusted or otherwise corroded. The coil at the bottom that hold separates the paper from the briquettes is in excellent shape and the tube/chimney is just discolored from use but otherwise looks amazing. Weber quality is evident and I'd expect this thing to last just as long as my grill.
Since the product is literally made to hold lit charcoal, this may go without saying, but I figured I’d mention it for those that didn’t think about it. When you’re holding the handles getting ready to dump the lit charcoal into your grill, it can get really hot and if you are not wearing gloves, you run the risk of getting burned. They do have a metal plate between your hand and the actual chimney wall to minimize the heat transfer, though, so unless your hand actually touches the metal, you should be ok.
