Where do I light it?

Press out the hole on the top of the box to form the chimney, press out one or both the the perforated holes at the base. Light via the holes at the base with a match or lighter, watch it burn…

It’s smoking!

There is no smoke without fire! Once your Hot Box ® Firestarter is alight, some smoke will be produced, this should subside in under 1 minute, if using in a stove please ensure air vents are open during initial combustion phases,

Can I pick it up once lit?

For safety we don’t recommend touching the firestarter once lit it will be hot, only approach if you are confident that it has extinguished.

I left it over 10 minutes and nothing?

If you have had it lit for 10 or more minutes and the Firestarter does not show signs of flames or burning then it may of not been lit correctly. Use a match or lighter at the base and allow more air. In stoves, leave the appliance door ajar.

I can’t see any flames?

As the components inside start to burn the flames will intensify. Eventually, the flames will start to come from the chimney before the outer box burns away.

I added fuel and now it’s gone out?

Ensure you have allowed time for the firestarter to provide a bed of embers, Then, build your fuel up slowly so as not to extinguish the fire. Ensure you have used dry logs, start small and build.
