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.
If you own a grill, then this is a must have product. Stop using harmful fluids and buy this. You won't regret it. I take this everywhere I go and it works wonderfully. At around 20 minutes, you will have hot coals ready to cook. Another side effect of using this is that the smoke from the burning newspaper seems to keep the mosquitos away!
Do be careful when you dump the hot coal though.
Before getting serious about grilling this spring, I used the "pyramid method" to light my charcoal. I bought Matchlight and usually had to dump a generous amount of lighter fluid on the self-lighting charcoal to get it to stay lit long enough to be usable. Now that I've switched to the Weber charcoal chimney, all I need are regular charcoal briquettes (Kingsford Competition) or lump charcoal and a couple sheets of newspaper. My charcoal is ready faster and burns more evenly, my food doesn't taste like accelerant, and I'm saving easily 40% by using regular charcoal and no accelerant.
My only complaint (and this is quite minor considering the price) is that Weber doesn't have a deluxe version of this product with a better finish. The finish on the chimney will start burning off the first time it is used, leaving the unprotected metal exposed. If you're in a humid or damp area, the chimney will begin rusting pretty quickly. This is largely an aesthetic issue and I expect the chimney to last several seasons, but I'd love to have an option to buy a chimney with the same porcelain enamel finish that is used on Weber's grills!
