  • Admin Review: Aug 2017 -one of my favorites and best in the northeast! keep your eyes out for these. The bag is crap but the pellets are the Sh#@
    Nov 2017 - OK, the bag is not really that bad. Super awesome this year! highly recommend if you are a fan of the softwoods. These pellets burn super hot and low ash! Very nice, keep up the good work on these. Love the product.

    Got 10 bags noticed this year they junk up my burn pot after 23 hours or so and get a lazy flame. Good heat but dirty. I use Olympus Doug fir. Soon as I switch hot small flame , not gunk in pot . Sabrina Piazzetta less than one year old with oak. Short pipe run. Wouldn’t recommend. Also they are granules not like the bigger normal size pellets. I think that makes them gunk up faster.

    I’d say the quality has gone down. The bag still isn’t great. It leaves dust all over the house. We have a top feed stove and today I turned it off at 10am to clean it. Once cooled & cleaned I turned it back on. After 1.5hrs the house wasn’t warming up so I turned it up to level 2. By 3pm my flame is lazy and I should be turning it off again. We used Pinnacle (blue bag) pellets following the LaCrete fire and they actually are low ash, burn hot and we can go 36hrs without a lazy flame! The LaCrete pellets are crumb-med sized. I’d include a photo for prom but it won’t let me

    Inconsistent is the best adjective for these. In 2014, they were great--burned hot and did not foul the burner-- Could run all week without cleaning. My wife loved how they smelled. In 2015, the same brand would junk up the burner so I had to clean it out every 3 days. I use a EcoHeat Solutions EcoBoiler for central heat.

    In my experience, only Okanagans are better. La Crete burns nearly as hot as OKies and is as clean as Okanagans.

    We used LaCrete pellets for two years and found they were excellent for heat but had a lot of ash. Now considering going back to Turman which is also excellent for heat but has low ash.

    I've used roughly 3 tons of La Crete the past 2 winters. They are my favorite on extremely cold days and nights. They are the hottest pellet I've purchased out of roughly 10 different brands.

    The only thing I dislike about them is they seem to have a hard time igniting when my stove is set to temp mode and hasn't been cleaned in a few days to a week.

    I bought 4 ton in August 2015. Easily the best pellet I've burned. No odor or excessive dust that others have mentioned.

    I bought three pallets with 60 bags each. Quite disappointed so far. most of the bags I have opened have a lot of raw sawdust as if moisture was in the bag when sealed so I started sifting the pellets before using but my dealer said he would replace any more of the bags with another brand and that's what I will do. i won't be buying anymore of this brand. i sent a message about my concern to LaCrete but they never aknowledged me . I'm sure I can purchase a less expensive and cleaner pellet

    I used a little over three tons of La Crete pellets this past season (2014-2015). The are very good pellets. I have been burning Vermont Pellets for three previous seasons. Vermont Pellets were sold out early this past year and the dealer suggested La Crete. They are very good pellets but they do have more ash left after burning then the Vermont. For no other reason that the ash is less with the Vermont I am going back to the Vermont Pellets. I think most people would be satisfied with these pellets. The quote I got for pellets this year ((2015-2016) is $295.00 a ton for La Crete and $300.00 a ton for Vermont. If the Vermont Pellets are not as good as they have been in the past, I will start using La Crete. Unfortunately I have found out with most products that once they get a good hold on the market, the quality goes down.
