  • Admin Review: Oct 2014: Somerset pellets have always been on top of my list. I miss the days I could find these at the Lowes in Woburn for less than $200 / ton. Those days are over however the quality of these pellets live on. Great pellet and a very safe bet for this season. August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets

    Am interested in becoming a wholesale/retail dealer in Walton New York. We would be interested in buying 40 ton per wk this summer. Please let us know if this is possible. We also have shown interest in Ligistic pellets and are awaiting their replay. However, we feel that two and three different types of pellets would be beneficial. We have tested the temp of different pellets and ash and your pellets have our intrest. Thank You. Clayton Stanton, 6074348092

    I use a Magnum corn/pellet stove for the last 5 years. I used Kentucky Kernel pellets at first. They burn very good, but expensive. The pellets burned great till it warmed up in January at everything sweat and then they didn't burn at good. The following 2 years I burned corn and then ended up blending corn and pellets where I found that was the best for me. Corn prices went too high so I went to straight wood pellets. Burned a brand from Big "R" and Tractor Supply, reasonably priced, can't remember the brand name. Came in white bag. Didn't like that brand. Very dirty, sooty, and didn't burn good no matter the amount of air and didn't get the heat. Tried a few bags of Starlight from Lowes and didn't care for them either. This year I found the local Tractor Supply selling Somerset wood pellets and bought 3 pallets after checking out the reviews and haven't regretted it. I just bought the fourth and last pallet today from Tractor Supply. Somerset burns hotter and cleaner. I get more heat from these pellets compared to the others used. I feel I get the usual ash build up. I still clean stove once a week, two at the most to get the most heat from my stove. Clean fire box every 12-14 hours on number 3 setting where I was emptying fire box last year every 6-8 hours at the number two setting. Somerset may be a little more expensive than what I used last year, but its been worth it. I hope Tractor Supply gets them back next year.

    I have a King/Ashley 551M pellet stove that I purchased last year. Used pellets from TSC and they were horrible didn't burn good and had so much ash had to clean the stove every day! I found Somerset pellets at Lowes and loved them. they burn so clean and hot. this year went to TSC and they had Somerset pellets and I bought what they had. They don't have anymore and I don't know anyone in this area that is a distributor. We are now using Greenway Oak pellets and they don't burn good and the ash is horrible. The stove has to be cleaned every 2 to 3 days. Sure do miss the Somerset pellets only had to clean once or twice a month and they lasted longer. Is there a dist. in this area please let me know! I love your pellets they are the best!

    Have an Englander Sumner's Heat stove. I get pellt creep, even on the lowest setting, no matter what brand of pellet I use. The only difference is, how long it tajes, and with Somersets, it takes significantly longer. They are (in 2013, at least) all hardwood, and yet lower priced than Lowe's other hardwoid pellets. Burn pretty hot, too. Best pellet for tge price, by far.

    I have a new englander pellet dove that I've use for 3 seasons. I purchased it new on a spring close out. It heats decent but does not light every time on its own. I've also replaced the bottom motor and auger the second season. I like the stove but I would look for a better brand if I were to buy again. I got it for 1/2 price so I'm not going to complain. I thought I might have gotten a lemon but my dad has had the same problems with his.

    I started using these in 2009 here in Indiana. They were at Menards. I loved them. Hands down the best . They beat soft woods any day. My stove would get so hot I was scared. My neighbor used them in his and it tripped off on hi limit (HI TEMP) I burned them with corn and the flame was great. The heat was sometimes UNBEARABLE. Cant get them any more. No dealers here

    This is our 3rd year buying and using somerset pellets. The first 2 year they burnt great. This year they are AWEFUL! I have contacted the company to see if they stand behind their product. We are having to clean the stove and ash pot daily where in the past we easily went 4-5 days. Very disappointing.

    I've burned Somerset for the last three years and think they are the
    best. Agree with the poster that said this years batch is worse than
    past years. This is the first year I've had buildup in the burn pot
    and more ash than past years. Still good though but not super
    this year. Burn in a Breckwell insert.

    We have burnt lignetics, boo to them. Clinkers with a terrible burn. We have been burning Okanogan, very nice hot clean pellet to burn,can run the pellet stove for a 14 day cycle before cleaning to stove. The glass door is a tad ashey, but for the constant filling of it, not a worry in the world.Cannot get Okanogan pellets on the east coast right now. So, Trying these somerset pellets out, we will see.
