Great chimney while it lasts

Top rivet pulled out in under a year and of course this happened while I had it full of hot coals, causing it to dump everywhere. I've owned these before and they worked great. Both ones of this new design seem to fail prematurely. What I wouldn't give to have the one back I bought about 15 years ago. It does get the coals ready faster than the cheaper ones.

Hi Mark! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! I'm sorry to hear that happened to your chimney starter. Our Customer Service team will reach out to you regarding the warranty on your chimney starter and to offer assistance. Thanks and grill on!

No lighter fluid here.

These are great for starting the grill. Just ball up some newspaper or use one of the Weber lighter cubes, that's right you only need one, and within 10 minutes the coals are good to go. These last for years of use(unlike the ones that are $5 less and only last a year) and save your food from the awful taste of lighter fluid. Another top notch Weber product.

A great tool, and a use for junk mail

I have several weber grills, and use these lighters exclusively. I use "junk mail" as a substitute for newspaper. I recently discontinued home delivery of our newspaper (opted for on-line access).

Awesome product

Just purchased this one after I accidently ran over my old chimney. I owned a wood handle chimney that has lasted me for years! It was super awesome but my only problem with it was that it did not hold enough charcoal and took awhile to get everything well lit. After using the weber chimney that I have been eying for some time but could not justify getting another accessory when I already had an operable one. I was impressed on how much more fuel it held and the overall ignition time of the fuel being evenly well lit. Of course I used the lighter cubes because in my opinion those are the best. The air flow of the chimney goes up it allowing air flow and an even distribution of heat through the entire chimney. I have used other I the past where only the bottom has ignited and the top remained untouched. With this you will not have this issue and the handle give great control for dumping the coals either on the grate or in the baskets.

Yeah, this rocks!

Hey. Bought my first one 2007 or so, that made it to the 2016 grilling season. I received a xmas gift 2015 of a chimney with a wood handle. That made it from May 16' to July 16' before the wood handle cracked. The wood handle chimney took every bit of 20-25 min to get the coals ready vs. 15-20 with this product. I'll never try another product.

Only chimney starter where you need gloves

I have several chimney starters, but this is the only one that burns my hands. The metal holder and the plastic handle gets very hot. On other products they have used wood, which don't carry the heat.

Hi Lars! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback regarding our Chimney Starter 307416! For safety, we strongly recommend that barbecue mitts should always be worn when handling the Chimney Starter. Thanks and grill on!

Decades of awesome

So probably 25 years ago, my lovely wife splurged and bought me a Weber Rapidfire Chimney charcoal lighter. That thing has been lighting our grill non-stop (summer AND winter) ever since. It's always left outside, with no particular care, and it has been flawlessly lighting coals with only 2 sheets of paper for decades. It has finally reached the end of its useful life. I could probably repair it, but honestly, I can afford a new one. So Karen brought one home yesterday to replace it. To my surprise, NOTHING has changed - same gauge of steel, same handle, same grate! Even better, on the label (which has instructions in 22 languages), it says "Made in the USA". Way to go, Weber. Beautifully done. Thrilled to own you. (by the way, we use it with our Webber kettle grill, which is also our second in 33 years of marriage)

Hi Kevin! Thanks for being such a loyal Weber fan! We are thrilled to hear that you have a new chimney starter, we are sure you will enjoy it! Be sure to check out our lighter cubes, they make lighting the chimney starter so much easier: https://store.weber.com/accessories/category/cook/tools/1324. Enjoy and grill on!

Fantastic

Having had a different brand of chimney starter in the past and sworn them off, I was skeptical. Using it the first few times I used newspaper to start it, and it worked great, but what wasn't great was all the ash around my patio from the newspaper. Found weber lighter cubes and gave them a try. Lets just say I won't grill without either anymore. They work awesome together! One cube and 3/4 full chimney and you are cooking in 20 25 minutes, yes really. Just another great product from the best grill maker in the world.

Hi, Thanks for your great feedback! Most people never go back to lighter fluid or newspaper after using our lighter cubes and chimney starter! The lighter cubes even burn in the rain! Thanks!

Goodbye Fluid

I recall when I was a kid we would wait forever for the coals to first ignite, after dousing with starter fluid, then get hot enough to cook on. This chimney has you ready to cook in ten minutes! Paper in the bottom, coals in the top. Light paper. As soon as the coals on top start to turn grey, pour them in the kettle. Add meat. Awesome product.

Rapidfire Starter

The chimney starter worked great for about 9 mos., then while picking up a hot chimney full of charcoal...the center grid fell out...scattering hot coals, ouch...no more flipflops while using the Weber chimney! The aluminized barrel is barely discolored, the handle is cool to the touch, the bail handle works perfectly. However, if you can't keep redhot charcoal contained...I mean dropping out the bottom! It's not worth a flip. Sorry Weber diehards....this is a big thumbs down. My $6 chimney from the Dollar store lasts longer and is a third the price.

Hello, We're sorry to learn of the issue you experienced with your Chimney Starter. We'll be sure to pass the feedback along to the approprite people. Our Chimney Starters carry a two year warranty. We'll be in touch to get you a replacement. Thanks!
