    I have been a burner for 5years now,&yes I have a New Englander pellet works great.had to change out air blower.for me,IH is the best pellet.BF is over rated,&price is leaves chalky soot, tar like stuff in stove,& exhaust pipe.some bags ran good,& then awful bags.I've burned alot of other pellets also. IH is the real deal. Like Manglos said....when you find what works best in your stove,stick with it. Also you want continuity,and IH does. THANKYOU IH for a GREAT consistent pellet.

    It has been my experience, after burning pellets for nearly ten years, (converted from wood burning) that the pellets that work for you will be exclusive to the stove you have. I have an Englander pellet stove, purchased from Home Depot..cheaper, yes, but they provide the information needed for the homeowner to maintain their stove, and my experience with the stove has been great. For me, the instant heat pellets work very well, and I look for them each year. You have to be able to adjust your airflow, etc, to meet the requirements of each pellet brand, and that is where it gets complicated. That said, I have burned Green Supreme, (pretty good, but won't stay lit on lowest setting), Instant Heat (works on low settings, burns good, relatively small ash load) Energex, (another soft-wood brand, not great for me) etc, etc, yada yada. The point is, for me it's clear that hardwood pellets are best for my system, even though I like the idea of higher heat from soft-wood, or combination pellets (such as Green Supreme.) The best pellets for my situation are Instant Heat. It is a process to find what works best for YOUR situation, and takes some adjustment, but when you find what works well, stick with it...of course, if you can't get those pellets anymore, as does happen, you've got to do the research again! Enjoy the research, and enjoy your pellet stove!

    Regard Instant heat pellets. There were too many long pellets causing stove to crack . I sleep on the other side of the wall from the stove and the noise is a constant nuisance. I have a P43 Harmon.

    I burnt two ton of these for 2013. Green suprem remain suprem. These had some very long pellets over 2" in lenghth. My MT Vernon seemed to handle them ok, but we did have one lone auger jam with them. The heat output is not great, at least not in my stove. And they are dirty. They made way more ash than the green suprem and they left a tar like stain all over the glass hours after cleaning. This year I got 4 ton of Green Suprem and a ton of something else. Next year i may get all green suprem. I would only use these on a bag by bag emergency basis. We didn't like them at all and honestly the 30$ we saved per ton over the green suprem was not worth it.

    I don't know if I got a bad batch because of high demand or what but mine was extremely high in ash content and did not produce near the heat as energex or green supreme. I have to say overall I was highly disappointed.

    I have read comments on Instant heat Pellets that are longer than most other pellets. these comments go back to 2010. I have burned these pellets and the heat output is good and the ash content compares to other hardwood pellets. Has there been any investigation on why these are various sizes..sometimes over 2 inches long. There are many who will not burn Instant heat pellets for just that reason. Please advise

    First Time pellet stove owner I have an Avalon Astoria Bay Insert that will heat up to 2300 square feet. My house is only 1300 square feet. I burned 3 tons of pellets this winter 2 of which were Instant Heat the other ton was lignetics because that was all Tractor Supply had. I like the Instant Heat better because there was very little dust. When we were home our programable thermostat for our pellet stove was set at 69 and it was comfortable. I live in Upstate NY 20 minutes from the Canadian Border and on -20 nights the house was warm. I clean my stove once a week. No clinkers no problems. I had to play with my stoves restrictor to get a good burn so i would recommend the people who have had issues with these pellets to check there stoves settings.

    After spending a little over $200 on a ton of Instant Heat pellets the only thing that ended up burning was my ass!
