Review 1 for Weber-Stephen Rapidfire Chimney Starter

What a difference!

What a fantastic purchase, this makes grilling so much more enjoyable and by making it faster and having the coals evenly distributed temperatures. I would highly recommend this for the upcoming grilling season. O yes one more thing this completely eliminates lighter fluid and the taste of it as well!

Best Chimney Fire Starter

This one really works. Every time! 2 sheets of newspaper will start your charcoal in record time. It is much bigger than the ones I have used in the past and is made of heavier metal. The design draws the fire up into the charcoal and they are ready to cook on in about 20 minutes. I cook out 3-5 times a week (or more) so I will be using it a lot. It will pay for itself many times over.

Why didn't I buy this thing sooner?!?!?!?! Not only does my food NOT taste like lighter fluid but the charcoal is ready in like 10 minutes!! The first time I used it I had to add more charcoal because I was used to having to wait like 1/2 hour for the lighter fluid to burn off and the charcoal to be "ready" AWESOME PRODUCT!!! Highly recommend to anyone that will listen :)

A lot of years I dealt with the lighter fluid smell and taste,Not anymore! The Weber Chimney is Awesome! At first I didn't think it was going to work with just 2 sheets of a small town news paper,I stuffed it in the bottom and poured charcoal in the top and lit it up. Smoked a bit and I thought I may have to try again but no it had lit the charcoal and was all ready to use in 10 minutes. Very impressed with this,Seen the littler ones for less but they matched the price CHEAP! Paid an little extra and got a well made and Weber quality Chimney was well worth it plus. Who needs Lighter Fluid again? Not this one! Urged for anyone who uses Charcoal to get one of these. The Taste of the food is way better too.

A chimney starter gets rid of the need for lighter fluid, avoiding that nasty taste. Just put it on the grill as the picture shows, stuff newspaper underneath, fill the top part with coals, and light it up. Reduces wait time as well.

Weber is high quality, and the chimney starter just makes grilling that much better and easier. No need for lighter fluid anymore! Gets the charcoal going quicker and more evenly. Definitely worth the small amount of money for this item.

The Weber Chimney Stater is just great! You get quick coals in no time without the nasty chemical flavor you get from the liquid or instant coals to start a fire for grilling.
It's all about keeping as many chemiclas out as possible and the lighter fluid seems to never go away to me.
This is the only way to start a fire that I will ever use again.

This item will pay for itself by the end of summer by not buying lighter fluid. Starts coal simply by placing wadded newspaper under starter and within 20-30 min coals are ready to use.

Under 20 minutes my coals are ready to go. The only thing I can say that is bad about this is after one use the metal has changed colors so if you are buying it for cosmetic appeal do not bother.

I would have never believed that this thing would ignite charcoal with some crumpled up news paper shoved in the bottom. No chemicals to start fire AMAZING

Weber products are the best. Use newspaper instead of lighter fluid and the charcoal briquettes are ready in 10 minutes or so.

This chimney starter is very easy to use and takes the worry away about struggling to get the charcoal to burn. It is ready in about 5-10 minutes.
My only disappointment was that the chimney was dented. I had driven out of my way to pick it up and did not want to come back for a replacement so just went ahead and accepted it.

I never thought this product was going to be so good. It was really easy just need some paper and that's it. You can taste the difference when you use 100% natural charcoal and the other that has chemicals.

Fast Coals

This unit brings charcoal to a "ready" status faster even than lighter fluid! Load the chimney with as many coals as you like, stuff a little newspaper, tinder, or what-have-you under the thing to light, strike a match and within a few minutes, you have a whole batch of perfectly-lit coals ready to pour into your grill. We use it camping; it makes perfect coals to use with our dutch oven. Top quality, sturdy & built to last.
