    Wow! Just goes to show how every stove is different. We burned these as a last resort with this past long, long winter (2017-18) and were shocked at how they burned down to nothing...almost nothing to remove...and also burned nice and warm. We loved them so much we plan to burn them next season. We use a "Summer's Heat" stove (England's Stove Works); 2,200sq. ft. coverage.

    To be fair to all the pellets I test, I thoroughly clean my stove before starting the test. This time I really cleaned it. It took me over an hour. It took 9 days of straight burning before my ash pot was full. The pros? Well, I didn't think my glass was any dirtier from these than several others. Also, it seemed I got very little build up in my firepot. The cons? An awful lot of ash it seems. And, they don't burn as hot. The room was 4-5 degrees colder burning these when the temperature outside was in the 20's. Also, they have quite a smell when burning. Some say it's the binder they use. All I know is when I'm outside you can surely smell that the pellet stove is on. I never had this with any other pellet. I wouldn't recommend these unless there was nothing else, which there wasn't when I bought them. They certainly wouldn't be good with a heavy cold spell. I had to set the stove on a higher setting just to get the same amount of heat as other pellets do on the lowest setting. Luckily, it's the end of March and Lowes sold me these for $4 a bag.

    Was not impressed. Lots of ash. Will not buy again, unless nothing else is available. I heat with an EcoHeat Solutions EcoBoiler for central heat.

    Very dirty pellets, never seen so much black ash in the stove. I have run about 10 bags and haven't had to clean yet but I will when these last 3 are gone, glad I didn't buy too many. Never had a clog/jam or shutdown from these like a lot of other people are saying though, they run overnight fine and they heat fine, just had to adjust the feed rate to compensate for the size of the pellets. Definitely not worth buying, they weren't even the cheapest pellets out there.

    With the first bag I used my Lopi Leyden stove started having issues. I would find that the stove would go out. The hopper would appear somewhat full but when I would check the pot it would be empty. At first I thought the auger was not working right. After fighting with the stove I found that the pellets did not flow right. If I pushed down on the pellets in the hopper it would suddenly go from looking almost full to almost empty. By not flowing properly there would be an empty void tricking the stove to think it was empty and shutting it down. Switched back to my other pellets and problem went away.
    Also found the heat to be very poor!

    Total waste of time, Very little output, black carbon build up quickly on glass door. Put it this way, if they were giving tons away free with home delivery, I'd pass.

    When I asked at Lowes about the quality of the pellets, they said they had not heard any complaints. So I bought a ton. However, I agree with all the others. The pellets burn quickly (using two bags when I usually use one), the heat is poor, and there is an extraordinary amount of ash.
