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.
Cooks the coals evenly, and a little quicker than just making a pile in the grill. Also it has a nice pocket below where the coals sit, where you have place paper to help start the coals. The holes along the side of the coal chimney help it breath through a thick layer of coals.
It is amazing, and it really is as simple as it looks. I poured in some of the one-match (generic brand) charcoal, lit it, and in very short order had charcoals ready to cook with. The design of the two handles is absolutely perfect. I stood this chimney in a fire ring (that wasn't being used yet), poured in the charcoal, lit it, and then waited a few minutes until I thought it was ready for cooking. Meanwhile, I got my dutch oven ready too, and had it sitting in the fire ring too. Then I lifted the chimney using the fixed handle (like a beer mug), and used the other movable handle to coordinate a pouring motion, leaving the hot coals on the ground inside the fire ring and ready for use. I used tongs to arrange the coals for cooking, and then moved the chimney away.
I did need to light some fresh charcoal during my cook too, and was confident about how quickly it would work. This is just the tool for anyone who wants to get charcoal going quickly and easily.
