I tried these as the other brand I wanted was out of stock. They work well and don't smell when burning, but handling them is not great as they leave a weird smell on your hands (presumably from the vegetable oil used). So I'll go back to my usual brand instead.

I have tried other natural fire lighters overseas and these are not nearly as good. was disappointed.

Easy to use and efficient.

Shape has changed from big blocks to flatter rectangles since I last bought them (I like the change). We don't use any other firelighters; one rectangular piece is enough to start a fire in our fireplace.

There are no other type of firelighter in my house anymore!

Bought this for my Dad for Father's Day as he loves to braai. He has asthma and now much prefers this product to chemical firelighters. Highly recommend.

These are friendly on the budget, friendly to the earth, and friendly to my lungs since it doesn’t make my throat feel like it has has chemical burns!

Excellent. Will definitely buy again. I always cough when my husband uses chemical firelighters. So it was fantastic not to experience the nasty smell and resultant coughing when we used these. These are definitely a permanent on my monthly list.

A really nice product - works just as well as "traditional" firelighters. Also a nice gift for male friends who might not otherwise be "into" green gifts. Affordable price too.

Brilliant product, stays lit for ages! Great for a braai or wood fired pizza oven

I love these firelighters. This is the second time I've bought them and I will keep buying them over traditional firelighters. They have no smell and they work just as well as regular ones.

I brought these for my dad and he loves them. They are a must have if you love braaiing often, no harm done to the environment.
13/07/2018, By Jenny
Only one block needed to start our fire and no horrible smells.
12/07/2018, By Jane
Difficult to light, but once it is lit it doesn't go out. I'll definitely repurchase
02/07/2018, By Beudene
To my surprise, these little blocks can light a fire. We thought we had to use 3 blocks to light our wood, but 1 is actually enough.

Best firefighters work well and your hands won’t smell after using them. Love them!

The best green product I ever bought.

We only use these fierlighters now - no more stinky braai start ups!
25/04/2018, By MERCO
practical, burns well and no unpleasant smell
13/03/2018, By Dillon
Such a great product to use at home and for the braai as well as for gifts! No pesky chemicals and it burns like crazy!
08/03/2018, By Jeannie
I love tht I no longer have to feel nauseous at the parafin smell from normal firelighters and what it may be doing to my food and the air. Will buy again!

THIS!!! I love this product so much!! I buy this all the time but the first few times here was the only place I could get it. It started with a free sample which I fell in love with. I now use this to start my winter fires all winter. There is no greasy touch on your hands, no yucky smell when you light it (or from the box), the box is compostible too, and it works VERY well. I am amazed and really recommend this as a fire lighter!
