Pres-to-logs Wood Pellets Lignetics

(15 votes)

Lignetics wood pellets are made from recycled, renewable sawmill waste. Our wood pellets contain all-natural biomass products and are manufactured at the highest quality control levels, designating our wood pellet fuel as premium grade. Lignetics premium wood pellets produce a consistent, high BTU output and produce less than one percent ash. This translates to a hotter, more efficient burn, which means less wood pellets burned, fewer wood pellets purchased, less space needed for storage, fewer trips to the wood pellet hopper and less waste to clean up.

    Prest-O-Log wood pellets are the WORST I have ever used in 5 years of owning my englander stove. Stove is clean and all internal passages are clean and free of ash. These pellets would not stay lit and I tried calling the Lignetics company in Idaho to ask what was the problem and was met with a very rude women who told me to call Home Depot and stated I needed to buy a prest-o-log fire starter log to start these pellets which was not stated on the bag and then she hung up the phone on me. Very rude customer service from Lignetics and I have since informed the CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS OF HOME DEPOT to inform them of the harsh nasty treatment I received from this company. I returned all 6 bags to home depot and purchased GREEN supreme pellets from Lowes WHICH BURN FINE and you don't need a fire starter log to start them.

    Stay clear from PREST-O-LOGS - The company is very rude and the product does not work and will only cause you to waste time and money returning these DEFECTIVE PELLETS.

    This is my first year with a pellet stove. I purchased it to save us money on our heating bills this winter. We live in North Central Montana where it gets very cold, below zero temps are not uncommon. I purchased a KOZI XL pellet stove and have tried many brands of pellets, some of them have been pretty good and others have been absolutely terrible. I ran into the Press-to-Logs brand by accident and bought them out of necessity than on trial but needed them as we had run out. I must say that the Press-to-Logs brand has by far been the best we have had thus far... they burn cleaner and put out more heat than any others thus far. Also, I have had to clean my stove less as they create less ash and far fewer clinkers in my pellet pot. I am truly impressed with this product and will be buying them for now on!

    Went from lignetics (green) to these pres-to-logs pellets out of necessity.

    I am the engineering type, and have a thermometer on the output plenum of my Drolet Eco-65. First thing I noticed is that plenum temp dropped from a norm of 188F down to about 160F (both on setting 6, maximum).

    Ash accumulation seems to have at least tripled. Burn pot clogs, cannot run stove on high (setting 6) anything over setting 4 causes issues in burn pot. Lots of clinkers.

    I did an entire cleaning of stove (including internal passages) and did not notice any increase in heat output.

    Conclusion: low heat output, high ash, stove does not like.

    I have used this year lignetics (green), stove chow and green supreme without issues. Will not purchase pres-to-logs again. Maybe its just my stove.

    Purchased a few bags to try at HD for my Quadrafire Mt. Vernon... Never again!!! My stove is agreeable with many brands of pellets I've tried but this one jams the auger like nothing. These pellets burn warm, not hot, and they clog the fire pot and turn the box black like a previous poster mentioned. My stove also had trouble igniting these pellets, stay away.

    Two tons of Presto-Logs in my 25-PAH Englander. Thinking Lignetics was a great brand, well these give Lignetics a bad name. Clinkers in the burnpot every 45 minutes choking out the stove. Black soot throughout the inards of the firebox. Required a thorough cleaning every day.. Unacceptable product. Using the remaining pellets in the spring as mulch.

    So far these are performing like any of the uber premium pellets. Low ash, high heat, and and a clean burn pot.

    I spent the night at my mother's house this weekend in PA and she and her husband burn this product in their pellet stove in the living room through the day and night.

    Initially, I didn't think much of it, but as the night progressed I kept waking up gasping for air because I couldn't breathe.

    Does anyone know what this lets off as it's burning, or if it's only meant for larger spaces? I have a younger brother and sister still living in the home, and of course my mother, and would hate it if they were constantly inhaling something dangerous.

    There is very little ventilation in the house. My mother for some reason has never been a big fan of proper air flow. I was surely scolded for cracking a window.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    I have a US Stove company 5500M Cleaned once to twice a week as needed. I find that these pellets work well when the stove has had its pre season cleaning and after about 1500 pounds starts to have burn issues unless you get the leaf blower out and do a full cleaning. I tried mixing these with another brand because we had a few bags left over and had bought a less expensive brand. That was not a good idea at all.

    These pellets when the stove is very clean burn extra hot and will warm the house nicely for very little pellet use. I can heat an 1800 swft cape cod with this pellet and the stove set on 2/3 when it is in the 30s outside. Once the stove starts to get dirty from normal burning season these pellets build up in the burn pot and leave the glass on the stove very dirty and then begin to produce large amounts of ash.

    All in all these are a dirty burning pellet and require frequent full clean outs of the stove to work at their best. I would recommend another brand of pellet if you can get it.

    Bought 10 tons of these at Lowes, with a special by the ton sale coupon and my military discount the price worked out to $165.oo per ton.

    They burn very well in both the England 25PDVC & also the Travis Pioneer Bay.

    GREAT HEAT & little ash.

    This may be the "sleeper" pellet for this heating season.

    I burn these in an Englander insert. Burned 80 lbs with stove set on 2 and 5 (fan speed), did a shut down to evaluate. Pot was clear, minimal ash in the areas that normally collect. Size of pellets was very consistent, .75 to 1.5 inches. I returned to Home Depot and bought 16 bags, there was one pallet left and others were in need too, share and share alike. I'll pick some up to complete our stock up for the winter in a few weeks. Cost was fair with my military discount, paid $3.73 / 40 lbs bag.

    I usually buy pellets by the ton but due to an injury I bought ten bags of Presto pellets at Home Depot in Helena, MT. They burned clean and produced really good heat in my Quadra Fire Mount Vernon. Less ash and cleaner glass. With my injury resolved, I purchased a ton today only to discover my first complaint. The yellow plastic cover was poorly secured (1 string in the middle, no staples on the bottom) requiring me to stop twice during my 20 mile journey home. The pallet was so old and beat up that the nails had come loose and even penetrated the heavy paper causing three of the five bottom bags to be holed. What good is it if you have good pellets and they can't make a trip of reasonable distance in good condition?

    Have Quadrafire Castile stove.
    Bought these pellets at Lowes tried 10 bags which were worst I have used in five years. Lots of dust, worst buildup in firepot ever. Buildup actually caused stove to fail to start; first time ever happened since stove was purchased. Follow cleaning instruction, maintenance instructions religiously. We burn 1.5 to 2 tons of pellets per year. I have learned to try a few bags of any pellet before buying a whole ton.

    These pellets are by for the best I've used. I have an austroflam stove. Very little ash compared to other brands. I usually have to clean out the bowl daily because of clinkers, but not with this pellet. I can literally go days without having to dump ash. I burn 24 hrs a day...

    I purchased these pellets from Home Depot in Aug of 2011 at $4.00 a bag for my Harman XXV stove. I have found these to work very well and actually do not notice any difference with the heat output between them and the Hamer "Hot Ones". My wife actually noticed the difference when I burned another brand "American" without telling her that I switched.

  • Comment Link Rick Sunday, 19 February 2012 04:23 posted by Rick

    I just purchased a ton of these, they are so much better than the Nation's Choice that I got at the beginning of winter. They burn cleaners and hotter. I have an Englander Stove, before I was running it at 5/5 or higher and my temperature was around 65-68 degrees. With these pellets I dropped the feed down to 1 and keep fan between 1-6 and the house is staying around 72 degrees.

    thought these pellets were great low fines and very good heat bought at depot for 200 what a deal

  • Comment Link Rick Wednesday, 30 March 2011 22:37 posted by Rick

    I thought these pellets were very good as well. I use an Englander 55-shp10. I got my pellets from HD for $199/t in Nov'10. I wish I had bought 4 ton but only bought 1. I then got Turmans which were't nearly as good this year as last year. The Turmans had VERY high ash this year. Had to clean my stove once a week! I usually clean it every six weeks with a low ash pellet.
