There is no smoke without fire! Once your Hot Box ® Firestarter is alight, some smoke will be produced, this should subside in under 1 minute, if using in a stove please ensure air vents are open during initial combustion phases,
Once the components inside the box start to burn, the flue of your appliance will get warm. Thereafter, the smoke produced will move up the chimney.
Within only a few minutes, our patented firelighter will start to produce flames and the heat produced is greater than any other natural firelighter currently available.
For safety we don’t recommend touching the firestarter once lit it will be hot, only approach if you are confident that it has extinguished.
If you have had it lit for 10 or more minutes and the Firestarter does not show signs of flames or burning then it may of not been lit correctly. Use a match or lighter at the base and allow more air. In stoves, leave the appliance door ajar.
As the components inside start to burn the flames will intensify. Eventually, the flames will start to come from the chimney before the outer box burns away.
Ensure you have allowed time for the firestarter to provide a bed of embers, Then, build your fuel up slowly so as not to extinguish the fire. Ensure you have used dry logs, start small and build.
Alternatively, place our firelighter on top of your fuel using “the top down method”
This method ensures the flue gets warm quickly and draw is created.
Further, the air inlets in our fire-lighter will then be unrestricted and the combustion process will be aided.
Absolutely, Hot Box ® Firestarter is perfect for lighting wood fire pizza ovens. We recommend stacking some log around it for the ultimate in firelighting convenience.
