Need to go back to the old size and formula

By 

from Maynard, MA

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

I previously purchased several boxes of I guess what is the 'old style' starterloggs and was quite satisfied with their performance. I just purchased a new box and, as others have pointed out, the blocks are smaller for the same price and they do not light as well. I don't know when the switch was made, but I will be looking for another brand next time if these remain the same. Please go back to the old size/style and formulation.

We use Starter Loggs in our fireplace and wood stove!

By 

from Denver, PA

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

The Pioneer Starter Logg can be found in your local Wal*Mart stores and if you have never used them to start fires in your fireplace and wood stove, then you are missing out on the ease of getting a fire going to keep your family warm. The first year we used the wood stove to keep our home warm in the winter, we went out often to collect kindling to start our fires and we also collected newspapers to use for starting fires. This method was very difficult and it took a long time to get a fire hot. My husband decided to go out and purchase the Pioneer Starter Logg that comes with 24 logs. The first time I used these starter logs I found starting a fire in the wood stove and fireplace easier than ever before. These starter logs are also pleasantly scented and catch pretty easily, but not so easy that a child could set a match on them and have them burn the house down. Now, every fall and winter we make sure that we have a good supply of starter logs because they do work well and eases our burden of starting a hot fire.

The Packaging Stinks!!!

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

If these were packaged individually they would be great.  But, unfortunately, they are not.  If you've never seen them, each individual package contains a rectangular brick of 4 starter logs that have to be broken apart.  Number one, I would rather not handle the bare log when making a fire.  I would prefer to grab a pre-wrapped single log and toss it in the fireplace.  It's not a big deal but, having small children and not wanting to find out what effect the residue may have on them, I have to wash my hands immediately.

The big deal is breaking these things apart!  I've got a grip that can damage most people's hands if I choose but I can only break off one log from each brick.  The others are easy enough to pry apart using a but I don't need the hassle. 

These start and burn GREAT but I won't buy them again if I can find Dureflame firestart logs.  These are too messy!

LOVE product, but being made smaller for same price

By 

from Titusville, PA

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

I would like contact information for Pinn Mountain Starter Logg.  I really love your product and it has always worked for us.  My disappointment is that the product is being made smaller for the same price.  I don't really appreciate that... feeling like I am being riped off, if you will.

This is an AMAZING product that helps you start a roaring fire!

By 

from Gresham, OR

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

These starter logs are priced great and work just as good as the exspensive starter logs! I am SOLD on this product. Put one in the fire with a couple pieces of real wood...and you got yourself a roaring fire for the rest of the evening! I start the fire before my Hubby gets home and all he has to do is keep it stoked after he gets home!

 

Enjoy!

after so-called improvements this product wont hardly lite

By 

from Dix, IL

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

After their so called improvements this product is very difficult to light and you cannot get them to come apart easily.  I have to take my fire poker and wedge it between them to get them to come apart not mentioning all the matches to light it.  I usually have to put a little kerosene on it to get it going.  Had better luck with this product before the "improvements."

Easy to use and affordable.

By 

from Fort Lauderdale, FL

Comments about Pine Mountain Starter Logg:

Living in Florida for the past five years we have had few opportunities to start fires. My husband isn't the most outdoorsy person around. His idea of hiking is spending the day walking around Outdoor World looking at all the camping supplies. Last year we bought a vacation home in Tennessee and it just happened to have a fireplace. Our first winter visit to the house was, of course, cold so we decided we were going to start a fire and enjoy a nice warm living room.

We would have been lost without the Pine Mountain Starter Loggs. I guess that I could have reached back to my Girl Scout days or we could have simply Goggled fire starting but this was so much easier. We bought the logs, put a couple in the fireplace with some firewood and lite the fire. That simple. The starter logs burned until the firewood eventually caught on and my husband felt like a real outdoorsman.

We  bought a chiminia recently for the house in Florida and purchased the logs to use in it also. You can't go wrong with this little helper. It's easy to use, affordable and found at many major department stores, even in Florida.
