How the Hot Box Firestarter was created

Firelighters reimagined

Firelighting has been one of the mainstays of our civilisation for over 50,000 years.

The warmth, as created by fire, is a physiological need.

Over the centuries, the processes by which man makes fire have evolved. Hot Box ® Firestarter is a part of this evolution.

In a world where convenience is king, yet the basic need for the warmth that only fire brings prevails, our little natural firelighter is right on trend.

Our patented combination of all natural components, inventively stacked inside a combustible carton, take the effort away from lighting a fire, especially in a wood burning stove. 

By packaging the best way to light a fire in a handy box, providing enough of them for a week or a month inside a further box, and making them available online, we have created the most convenient natural firelighter ever.

Let us explain…Hot Box ® Firestarter will light logs without using kindling, paper or other firelighting products.It takes less than 20 seconds to prepare the firestarter for use and light it.

Further, In around 5 minutes, when used in a wood stove, you will have a fire that is hot enough to start adding further fuel.

This is a claim that only our Fire-lighter can make.

Moreover, the initial burn phases are crucial when it comes to reducing air pollution.

By generating more heat faster, and standardising the way in which we light our fires, the level of harmful emissions produced during the initial combustion phases will be significantly reduced.

Without question, when it comes to lighting your wood stove, Hot Box ® Firestarter is the most effective and convenient means of doing so.

Convenience Packs

Let us consider the price. The two pack of natural firelighters comprises enough for a weekend break, perfect for a stay in a holiday cottage with a wood burner for example. However, due to postage, the price point gets a little hefty, is there a price on convenience however?

Moreover, our 27 pack of firelighters provides enough for month and offers superb value overall. In fact, our 27 pack of kindling replacement firelighters has proved to be is our best seller.
