I would recommend this item to a friend.
Had one in 1972 - and used for 10 years - marvelous, easy to start a fire in the wood stove.
Daughter and son-in-law with new wood stove need one, so this will be a great gift.
Nothing I've seen in 40 years is a better idea than this one for frequent fire startups.
ProsLasts forever, nothing wears out, just add some kerosene, and it always works the first time.
ConsAn initial investment in making wood fires easy to start, but well worth it.
