the concept works; I physically fanned a bit the balled up newspaper fuel in bottom chamber & needed to add more newpaper; nesting chamber above holds 4 lbs charcoal; need some patience to allow heated charcoal surfaces properly burn to hot before spreading. China [bought with syw points]
I just love this charcoal starter it cut my bbq time in half this is a must have tool for any bbq fanatic .It only takes about 15 to 20 minutes and you have hot coals.I have used it almost every weekend it has heled up nicely.Its a.great buy too the prices where reasonable.I will be buying another for bigger bbq jobs thanks kmart.
bought this hoping I wouldn't have to mess with fuel and the smell but am un impressed all it did was smoke and I ended up waiting three times longer than If I just used the lighter fluid. now I just use it and lighter fluid and it works good that way but not as intended
