Rapidfire Chimney Starter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skip the lighter fluid. Use this instead. This is the best way to start your charcoal. Just crumble up some newspaper and put it under the coals. Light it and in a few minutes the coals will be started. You can avoid that gassy smell of lighter fluid and have a nice clean fire to cook on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looking for a simple non chemical charcoal starter I wanted to get away from chemicals to light our Bar B Que, I remembered my father-in-law had a cylinder starter he placed newspaper underneath and then poured the charcoal inside the top. I bought this today and crumpled a few sheets of newspaper loosely just like I had remembered. It smoked excessively at first so much so I thought about getting a blanket and doing smoke signals seriously. The paper was gone it was still smoking I wasn't sure if this was a fail or not. I walked in the house a few minuets later I returned to find flames and the charcoal glowing. Oh yes it was perfect and in less time then the pile takes. I was so impressed I did it again only with a full load of charcoal same impressive results with no chemicals just a few sheets of crumpled newspaper. The cylinder is made heavy-duty it's well ventilated to get those coals heated incredibly fast. It is worth the money and saves time. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly designed chimney starter This starter is as described on the website and by other reviewers. It vents better than my previous chimney starter, feels better made, and is an ideal size. I have not owned it long enough to claim that it will last longer, but my previous starter had a thinner grate and walls, and literally burned out over 3 years. This starter costs $5 more and I suspect it will last an extra year for each extra dollar.
