Good spot, reduced again from the £12 I paid a couple of weeks ago. Can't see any further discounts on other stock yet apart from the Q2000

I got this one in June, used it a few times but I will be surprised if the quality of it will last till next year. The reviews of the Weber ones say they last a few years.

I have one of these! Haven't been able to use it yet due to the usual Scottish weather

This is one of my best purchases, I paid RRP and think it was good value then, this is a steal!

These are great. Everyone needs one.

Same as the homebase ones. I've got 3, handles melted on all of them and handle has fell off one because the revits melted. Worth spending the extra for something that will hopefully last. Going to see if I can get a couple of these, but my store says low stock, so not looking good.

this is essential for a bbq imo, i love mine

honestly don't know how I survived before i had one. Essential if you like a proper bbq, makes it as easy as gas to start.

Had mine for years, at least 10 and probably more money then. Bargain price.

I bought a Tesco Generic one last year for £3. It was ok but the finish was like using a razor blade with hot coals in it.
Bought one of these a few weeks ago, the difference is night and day. I'll keep the generic one for something, some day but until then the Weber will do everything, with a greater capacity and with a greater level of safety.

Nonsense I'm in the NE and my BBQ has been on. Nothing wrong with a big umbrella and a raincoat

Wait until the metal warps out of the handle & you get hot charcoal all over the floor.
wasted charcoal & a mess to clean up, for trying to save £5.
Go to B&Q look at their own brand one, then look at the weber. You will see how much better quality the weber is.

Don't chuck it out just yet, with global warming you may reach 10c by 2050

I purchased ours in 2006, used every summer and still going strong. £10 is a bargain have some speedy heat OP.

That's crap to me to honest.
These are equally good.

We've used ours 10+ times so far and no sign of any issues, we added a few extra air holes like the Weber has but it seems solid enough.

Glad to see someone talking sense.

These are far superior to the el-cheapo ones but the aluminium coating came off after a couple of uses

... I don't even have a barbecue, but I think I'll still get one of these!

...i'm vegan, but i think i'll still get one!

These things are a must have for charcoal cooking.

No need for one of these if you have a garden blower. Mine gets the charcoal roaring in no time, so long as you can put up with the collateral damage to anyone or anything in the line of fire!

I actually bought one of these for the neighbour as I got sick of my house being filled with the smell of their BBQ firelighters every weekend. Anyone who uses firelighters or liquid fuel to get their BBQs going are complete nobs IMO.

Not sure that was meant as a joke or not, but made me chuckle. I had an image of the whole house burnt down and you smiling because you got your BBQ'd wing X)

I had no idea these were a thing. So its just used to light BBQ charcoal? I've always bought my coal that comes in little bags and you just light the bag, takes all of 3 seconds to get going... Would this be better?

I like mine but rarely get it started first time and that's after using it for a few years. Usually takes hold second time and that's still better/more efficient that using other methods.

Heat. My experience of B&Q stock systems is that although it shows out of stock items may be present in stores. Sadly it worked the other way for me where items were in stock according to the data but out of stock in store.

That's a very expensive way of doing it.

I had a generic one and now have this one - my word, this is better. I don't even use firelighters now.

with this you either stuff the bottom with paper or dump a fire lighter under it, bbq ready in 20 mins, pretty much the same as the bags you buy but all the coal stays in place until you pour it into the bbq

I had a generic starter, then bought the weber one. Much better quality, The coals sit on a wire grill rather than a plate with holes in it. Easier to start, faster to heat up. Well worth the extra money

My B&Q (Bury store) also had the same webber chimney starter with a package including 2KG briquettes and 6x lighter cubes for a total of £14.

Like many others on this thread, I have this chimney starter and can't fault the quality, its brilliant and gets your charcoal lit and hot very quick.

A blower(old Hairdryer will do) can make the charcoal starting process quicker and reliable with or without one of these,

You still need to wait till the coals settle.

Haha got to agree with this. Went in there some time ago for some stuff that the computer said was in stock but it wasn't to be seen in store anywhere. Asked if they could order some then, and was told no, because the computer says they have it in stock! Must have been an empty shelf for years then! You'd think after 20+ years of knowing stock control is their problem that Kingfisher might have sorted it out by now!

Bought on Thursday for 12. Think the starter packs will go under 10 as they never shift

Works much better than my generic one. Coals ready in about 20 minutes
