I think Aldi is ok, but I prefer lidl
I normally pass heat logs free of charge if anyone can collect...
I usually burn wood, but last year I got a bit obsessed with smokeless house coal. What are these heat logs like in a multifuel stove/log burner?

Very good - I put a few through over the weekend and was impressed - last well and give out a decent amount of heat.

I find them to be great when mixed with real hardwood logs, these are really dry with moisture content below 15, so reasonably easy to light and once they get going burn well which then allow the hardwood to burn well as they really get the heat in the stove. Also really good alongside smokeless fuels, I only use anthracite and when burning wood alongside you need to be careful not to have much moisture in the wood, luckily these do not have alot of moisture so they go well together with smokeless fuels without causing any chimney damage.

At this price worth a try, I have been using them past 4 years in my stove, if you want to buy in bulk then ebay works out cheaper with delivery to the door
mine not kicking out much heat, will have to wait and see. Worth pointing out mine are measuring 5,6,7% on the moisture meter so crazy dry, but bought straight after going onsale and before any rain, how these stay dry being in cardboard boxes uncovered outside the store is beyond me they are popular and efficient because they are dry surely some british weather and thats any advantage gone, soggy boxes and damp wood?

did he actually listen? I'd get the guy just looking at me like i was mad, they have no room inside so i guessed thats the reason aka not really caring too much of the end product. Bought firelights soaked to bone before same store.

Yes, he actually thanked me as well which was a little surprising. Will no doubt differ from store to store. It infuriates me sometimes when I see their plants, unless you get them on the day they come in, they'll be dead as no one bothers to water them.
I've bought a load of these (Yesterday and Today). Tried last night and they're brilliant. House was baking hot. Tip is get a nice ash base first from the wood. So have an established fire before you put them in. If the stove isnt hot with a nice hot ash base they'll not burn well. Just to add also, If you buy a box of these "direct from the supplier" they're £4. So this is a great deal! You will not get these cheaper!

I use a combination of mostly hardwood, topped up with a heat log for or two in the day and some smokeless coal here and there. Usually I put some coal in before bed to keep the stove roasting for a few extra hours.
These were £2.49 at HOME BARGAINS last year, unfortunately this year they do not Stock them But the are stocking the VERDO Heat Logs @ £2.79 for 10KG.
These logs are back in stock at Aldi today (17th December) as part of the day's special buys. bought them last year after seeing a post on hukd - great value, incredibly dry and put out tons of heat.
