A chimney starter is essentially a metal cylinder with a grate near the bottom and a handle mounted on the side. Unlit charcoal is placed inside the cylinder and newspaper or other flammable material is placed under the grate and lit. The charcoal at the bottom of the cylinder lights first and the "chimney effect" ignites the remaining charcoal above.
The chimney starter is efficient and avoids using fire petroleum fire starter.
The wooden handle of our chimney starter is FSC labeled.
