This is the best charcoal starter thingy out there.
At this price (R249 or R299) it's the best value too.

Use fire starters, instead of paper, to start fire.

Fantastic product - Coals ready in 15 minutes, using much less Blitz!

Jucinda, South Africa. 25 April 2017

It a quick and handy product easy to use, only problem is where they stick the label, when using it for the first time the glue burnt onto the unit and product. Suggestion is for the label to be removed or not to be applied with glue.

Brinton, South Africa. 12 December 2015

This is a great product and worth the price. Coal is evenly heated in 10 minutes. It is really effortless. No more fanning the over the coal with this product :)

This product is the easy to use and is a must for any braai

Gerhard, South Africa. 20 May 2014

Absolutely brilliant little device.
All I did was take the empty charcoal bag, stuck it underneath and lit it, the charcoal was ready to go in 10mins or less.
I was braaing in about 15mins time, painless.

Awesome Product. Easy to use

Johannes, South Africa. 17 April 2015

I have bought from different online websites in the past, but i have never seen such good quality packaging like yours before. I can see that you take pride in your job and that customer satisfaction come first. This Weber Rapid fire Chimney is from high quality and it is very big in comparison with other makes.

Joe, South Africa. 25 June 2017

This is a must have for braai enthusiasts...starts a fire really quickly and efficiently.

Angela, South Africa. 12 July 2017

Fantastic product. It works very very well. Love it

Thurston, South Africa. 7 January 2015

Great product, very easy way to get your coals burning. You are able to throw the firelighter at the bottom and load the coals later and light the the chimney from the bottom.

Ken, South Africa. 22 December 2014

Brilliantly simple product. Well made, sturdy and works just as claimed. Charcoal or briquettes, two sheets of newpaper, a match and we've had a jug full of glowing coals without fail in less than 20 minutes from lighting. Just remember to use those heavy leather gloves when emptying the contents into the braai. It's all in the instructions.

Moosa, South Africa. 7 November 2016

Used it once
Saves time and firefighters
Highly recommended

Gerda, South Africa. 14 April 2015

Great service and great product. very well priced compared to the shops.

Gary, South Africa. 5 April 2017

Best invention ever

Stephen, South Africa. 21 June 2017

Brilliant product! Very cleverly engineered and well constructed. Very efficiently lights briquettes in sufficient quantity to use the Weber properly. Aluminium so it won't rust either. Money well spent.

Koos, South Africa. 10 August 2017

This is the best invention ever. 10-15 minutes and coals are ready

Marcel, South Africa. 31 July 2015

This product is very good. I use fire lighters to start the fire, as it's clean and fast. It works better than newspaper. You just place this product with coals over some burning fire lighters and you are good to go! As you start the fire it makes thick black smoke for a few minutes. Briquettes are ready for use in about 15 - 20 minutes. You will notice a nice flame at the top (above the coals) when the coals are ready for use. As it's made of aluminum it doesn't rust. It takes about 2kg or half a bag of briquettes. It will amaze your quests how fast the fire is ready for use. Don't even hesitate to buy it, just go for it! It makes a great gift at a reasonable price.

Rens, South Africa. 22 November 2016

Great product and good quality

Pieter, South Africa. 25 January 2017

Solid, lasts for years

Marwicke, South Africa. 7 December 2016

This product works really well. You will have red hot coals in 20min.
