    I tried the Geneva pellets for the 2012/2013 winter. They produced good heat. However, the dust, the ash and the clunkers were a turnoff. I have had my stove for over six years and I have tried different brands. Even though these pellets are more expensive, I am going back to the softwood, low ash products. I like the Canadian pellets;
    LG Granules. In summary, a good pellet for the price. However, I am willing to pay more for less ash, dust, clunkers and reduced stove maintenance.

    I purchased a Quadra Fire stove in 2007 and have used it as my primary source of heat since. I've tried a lot of different brands of pellets always looking for the best deal. Some have been better than others over the years. I bought 3 tons last fall from a local distributer and the were great producing a low amount of ash. This allowed my stove to operate for longer periods of time between cleanings. However, I didn't bank on such a cold winter and found myself running low in mid FEB. I saw a ad for the Geneva pellet and decided they were a close to home and a decent deal so I got a ton. Bottom line they were the worst pellets I've ever purchased. Burning these has caused me to have to do constant maintenance on my stove. My stove went from a cleaning every 24 hrs to every 6!!!! The ash left from burning is outrageous. The pellets Themselves were extremely dusty and short little stubs. I will never buy this product again and advise anybody reading this comment to do the same. I'm just lucky I didn't get stuck with more than 50 bags of this garbage.

    I've now burned a ton and a half of these and I have to say, you get what you pay for! These were delivered for $225 per ton, the cheapest pellet I could find. Heat output is not bad, ash is high at over 0.5%, but the clinker is a killer. Without an auto cleaning burn chamber three bags will bring the 110,000 btu/hr furnace to a stop and the Enviro Mini will last less than one bag. Having been testing a number of pellets, we fully clean the furnace and stove each time AND perform a complete combustion analysis to ensure proper CO2, Draft and efficiency. We have been able to get settings on the furnace to burn through a complete ton without touching the system, but the stove will not. These came to us after a Harman stove user could not burn through two bags without a clinker shut down. That said, the size and consistency of the pellets looks fine. No fines to speak of, no off smells....just a lot of mineral content that leads to clinker.

    Put out good heat...but way way way too much ash and soot! Produced the hardest clinker that I have ever seen! That's ok if you like cleaning the entire stove and glass everyday. The amount of dust was unbearable also!However, they are reasonably priced and had good size consistancy.I would consider these again in a pinch! I found the Maine Woods too burn hotter, longer and way way cleaner!

    Ok pellet. Way too much ash and dust everywhere! Black soot on the glass after 1/2 bag. I clean my Quadra Fire CB 1200 at least once a week. Several miserable clinkers too chisel out of the firepot! In fairness, these are the first pellets I've tried so I have only one comparison and that is Maine woods pellets. Geneva is definitely second to the Maine woods. I burned a ton of Geneva and the. A ton of Maine woods. Geneva had good heat and I would use them again if Maine woods aren't available.

    I bought 4 ton of these in the fall, have been very disappointed in the quality, and the ash produced! Talk about a bird nest in the pot, I have to clean after every bag or I have ingnition problems. the fines and dust are excessive, and I have to date, 5 bags of crumbled, unusable pellets. I have a high end Hearthstone stove, and burned Logik E last year without these problems. I would not recommend these pellets.

    I have an Englander stove about 5 years old.... clean it every 4 days or so shut it down and vacuum it right out. First off wear a dusk mask when you dump a bag of Geneva pellets in...never had my stove and basement covered in so much dust! Pellets are tiny scrap "second quality" pieces. Smell like diesel fuel not wood, and my glass door is black within an hour. WILL NOT buy any of these again... I went and bought a 1 1/2 ton skid of Canadian brand GranulesLG and threw the Genevas under the deck for spares. Never will buy Geneva again unless they change their formula

    Now I have never left a comment on any prodct in my life and I'm not one to complain but, I have had nothing but bad luck with Geneva pellets. My entire stove is caked with soot and ash. My stove has not had a problem until I started burning Geneva pellets. New England pellets by far have been the best pellets to use. They burn hot with extremely low ash. The glass stays clean for days with New england also. Burning these Geneva pellets make my glass black within hours. Now I know about the air and what the flame should look like so that's not the case. Anyway, extremely disappointed with these pellets. Don't waste your money and pay an extra $85/ton for NE pellets.

    Heat output is good, price is good, BUT ash production is at least 25% more than WarmFront pellets. Means I have to clean the stove more frequesntly. I'm willing ot pay mor efor less ash.
