I would recommend this item to a friend.
Great Grate and Great On-line Store
This was my first visit to this store and just one of several web searches I made. But I kept coming back both for the pricing and variety of options. This grate has been a wonderful replacement for our antiquated one. But if it wasn't for the professional customer service during a phone call I might have passed this product by because the image shows 8 bars while the knowledgeable rep confirmed it was 7. My wife takes credit for giving this one a try and we couldn't be more pleased. It arrived quickly and precisely when promised. The packaging was first rate and the fit in our fireplace perfect. More important the 6" height results in a fantastic draft and burn. The heavy gauge wire mesh welded to the massive steel bars efficiently drops ash but retains a hot ember bed. And the 6" height makes shoveling leftover ash quick and easy. A great price, free shipping, timely delivery and above all quality service made this a satisfying purchase.
ProsThe steel grates and frame are substantially thicker than our old grate. The mesh retains a hot ember bed. The height of the grates yields efficient air flow with almost non-existent smoking during the entire burn.
ConsNeed to replace the picture but buy this one - seven grates is quite sufficient.
