Rapidfire Chimney Starter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I bought a cheapo chimney starter before I sprung for this one and the cheapo starter almost burned me. Beware of chimney starters with cheap handles that are just pressure fit into wood, instead of screwed on tight like this one. The cheap one I bought was a safety hazard as the handle came apart while I was trying to dump the coals. Be safe with your coals and get a chimney with a sturdy handle. Plus you can flip it upside down to light a small amount of coals for smoking. The wire thingy that you are supposed to grab with your other hand to help tilt is good if you are not comfortable flipping it with one hand. I removed it as I light this thing upside down all the time and it gets in the way. All you need to light it is 1 match and some newsprint or brown paper bag. The paper is honestly faster than just about anything else and can be acquired for free. Most importantly, be safe everybody! Happy grilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handle Failure Very good but the rivet holding the top of the handle to the body has popped out. Of course, I have used the heck out of it so it would be expected that something would wear out, eventually.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts the fire, lol It works great but it dosent hold enough charcoal to finish a cook. You would need two of them to have enough charcoal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great if you have newspaper I love these things! They are simple to use and work great to get the coals going quickly, just crumple a few sheets of paper, set them a blaze and come back in a short while to grilling ready charcoal. My only complaint (not against Weber) I am finding it harder and harder to get a newspaper these days. Our local has gone electronic only now and the larger "regional" papers are no longer delivering to our town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy! Purchased as a Christmas gift and was surprised at the quality of the product. We are not new to the Weber Grill Chimney but man, I think this is one company that has actually increased quality unlike so many others. I really was not expecting that considering the price was so affordable. Very happy with the purchase and will continue to be a loyal Weber customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than competition I bought this about 9 years ago and it has never let me down. I know other people who bought other chimney starters and they just did not hold up. Easy to use and I use drink trays that we get from drive throughs. Based on how it has worn over the years, I expect my grandchildren will be using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Solid Built Bought this to replace my cheaper chimney stater that broke ofter a few uses. The Weber Rapid Fire is much better built and will stand up too many uses. Well worth the few extra dollars to purchase. Wish I had bought this in the first place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tool! Got it for Father’s Day. I have been using it consistently since. It is sturdy and the extra handle gives you confidence and an extra safety measure when dropping the lighted charcoal into the grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Weber product, but... The other night I went out to dump the coals, and the handle had completely burned off! No replacements available. Oh well, it's still usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Makes lighting charcoal easy! No lighter fluid or weird fuels needed. Just some newspaper and a lighter and you’re off!
