This is the first time we have tried this coal and it is excellent, so easy to use and amazing value for money, I hope they keep this in stock
They burn well - with good ventilation

Despite what other reviewers have said, I find these bags burn well. Yes they do go up in an impressive ball of fire when first lit, and then die right down, but they smoulder on for hours and have found glowing embers the next day. There is a big caveat here though... your fireplace MUST have good ventilation from underneath the grate. If it hasn’t, or you’re being lazy like me sometimes and haven’t cleared it, it struggles to take.
Out of date old item - not fit for purpose

Do not purchase these reduced fire bags. They fail to light and after purchasing 20 bags on click and collect the store have now advised its pot luck if they work as are in excess of 2 years old, hence reduction! I now need to return the remaining bags to get a refund and advised they will not refund the bags that failed to light!

these really are not the answer to a quick fire..no magic here,the package is basically a flamable bag with fire lighters in the bottom and smokeless coal on top which sounds fine but the coal itself simply doesn't burn very well,on first light up it seem pretty impressive..a big glow and good flames for a while but the flames are from the accelerent and not the coal..as soon as the accelerent has burnt and the coal is left to its own devices the flames dye down almost to nothing and continue like that,after an hour there is very little noticable heat from the fire unless i get within a foot from it,another hour later the coals are all red and producing more heat,however there is little with these coals that justifies lighting them,they really are pretty rubbish at burning,they are very similar to barbaque coals which you burn until red and no flames then cook on them but the instructions on these say not for cooking so can't even use them for that,overall..not worth the money! i do want to add though..i've only tried these in an outside small fire pit with lots of air holes bottom and sides,maybe they do better in an enclosed indoor fire place,as far as smokeless goes..yes there is reduced smoke but in this day and age of political correctness they shouldn't be aloud by law to call these smokeless..there is still noticable smoke from the point you light them to when they go out
A brilliant product

Easy to use just light the corners of the bag and you have got yourself an instant fire. Brilliant product, burns really hot and for a very long time, would recommend it to anyone.
