Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Oct 2014: High heat, low ash and great looking bag that is solid and thick. What else do you want from a pellet. These pellets burned great so they are absolutely added to the "best" list.

    Awesome pellets. I would Rank them right up there with Somerset pellets, very clean burning with little ash.

    These pellets work great in my Englander Pellet Stove Insert. Very pleased with them. I only had to clean out the ashes twice for a whole ton. I could still see the flame through the glass window and it was easy to clean off. I hope I can get them next season but my supplier said he was trying other brands due to the long trip from south central PA to nearly the TN border. If not available I will defiantly only try a few bags of a different pellet before buying a whole ton. Know from experience not to buy a whole ton without trying a few bags first.

    Wish I'd read these reviews before buying a ton of the American Wood Fibers Premium hardwood pellets. The bag looks just like the picture above. Lots of dust/fines.

    I have a Breckwell P4000, now 10 years old. I know how to use it well and am a maintenance fanatic, which comes from 20 years spent as a Master Auto Tech. Everything is cleaned regularly, right down to the blades on the combustion and convection blowers. I have burned many brands of pellets over the years and can safely say I have NEVER used a pellet that sucks as bad as these do. For the first time ever the stove does not produce enough heat to maintain home temperature and keep the central heat from kicking on. The ash and clinker buildup is so significant the burn pot is partially clogged within 8 hours. It can't make it a full 24 hours before I need to shut off the stove to scrape the burn pot and dump the ash out of the base of the burn pot. The ash is darker, thicker, and heavier than the ash from any pellet I've ever burned. I am disappointed that they are able to market and sell this crap as a quality pellet, I am disappointed in the local feed store that has otherwise done their homework to supply good quality pellets over the years, but I am thankful I only bought one ton instead of the three tons I was initially going to buy. From now on I'll do my homework before I hand over the credit card!

    Have a Harman accentra insert 4 yrs old and usually burn, Hammers, Greene team, and all was gone so I purchased 20 bags of these White Pine pellets and at first was great. Huge heat, nice small pellets that fed great, and a nice pine smell. Well, after burning 20 bags in a cleaned stove, soot was horrible, kinda sticky black residue inside the heat exchanges, and really gummed up.. Maybe from the pine softwood? Anyway, cleaned the stove and a real mess. I will be going back to the hardwoods from now on. Shame, liked at first especially very hot.

    These are the worst pellets I have ever bought. I got 3 tons at HD without trying out first thinking they would be good. Last year with O'Malley Pellets I was cleaning my burn-pot out once to twice a week. I need to do it in excess of twice a day now. These pellets have a ton of clinker buildup in the burn-pot and plug my burn-pot on the high setting. I'm never going to buy this brand again.

    I bought ten bags to try them. I immediately bought a ton. Much better than the cubix I was using. Smell great. Very little ash. Burn hot! Ultra premium white pine

    I bought a ton of American Wood Fiber brand pellets from my Lowes store here in Hatfield PA as they did not carry the Cheat River brand as they did last year. From having used my Breckwell pellet stove for over 18 years, these are the worst pellets leaving so much ash. I will never buy these again. I have used Cheat River and Lignetics and they are good.

    i purchased 4 tons of AWF PELLETS BURNED WELL, ABOUT I GALLON OF ASH PER TON.

    1 1/2 BAGS OF DAMP PELLETS OUT OF 4 TONS NOT TO BAD, ONCE YOU DRY THEM, I ADDED THEM TO THE HOPPER A LITTLE AT A TIME NO WASTE

    I READ THESE CRAZY STORIES ABOUT HOW EVERY PELLET PURCHASED IS BAD. MAYBE IT IS YOUR STOVE, OR IT IS NOT ADJUSTED RIGHT.

    I HAVE ONLY USED THREE TYPES OF PELLETS

    1. Lignetics: (5stars) great pellet little or no ash (priced out of my league in NY
    2. American Wood Fibers:(4+stars) I rate it as good as Lignetics because it is so much cheaper in NY. I can live with the little ash I get, and it also does not burn as hot as #1.
    3. New England Wood: (3 stars) Not as good lots of ash could not run stove on low or medium settings, would shut off due to ash buildup. if it was the only pellet I could buy then i would use it.
    Again, for the money A.W.F. does well in my stove I will be purchasing another 5 tons again this year
    I have a Quadra-Fire stove (I like the Round Fire Box, easy to clean)

    The worst pellets I have used so far. I have a US Stove Hearth Focus, and burn about 4-5 ton a year, usually use Michigan Wood Pellets, but since they are all sold out, I got these. The ash is very course and abundant, sticks to the inside of my stove and clogs everything up. I was doing bi-weeky maintenance once or twice a day, and annual major maintenance weekly.
