The Folding Chimney Starter Review – Start charcoal without lighter fluid.

As I have discussed in one of my previous posts, to start charcoal without lighter fluid is very simple and very easy.

A Chimney Starter is always doing the job..

In another post on my website, I discussed and reviewed the TOMSHOO Chimney Starter, which is a round shaped chimney and therefore it cannot fold up. It does a wonderful job in getting your charcoal ready in a few minutes, but you need some space to store it, and it is not made from stainless steel.

On the other hand, the Stainless Steel Folding Charcoal Starter is a more advanced and a better-designed chimney. It is in a class of its own when we talk about Chimney Starters.


Product description and features:
  • This is a high-quality product made from Stainless Steel.
  • Simple rectangular shaped structure, easy to clean and safe to use.
  • It can shrink or fold up using less storage space.
  • After folding up it is easy to carry in its storage bag.
  • For outdoor recreation or home use.
  • Using charcoal or briquettes.

Bying Advice…

The Folding Chimney Starter is a beautiful designed high-quality stainless steel item wich will surely last you for a long time. These folding chimneys can do the job effectively.

Another great tool to start charcoal fast and safely, but the price is a bit steep.

In my opinion, it might be the ideal buy if you do a lot of outdoor recreation and camping, as it is easy to clean and easy to carry when folded.

I personally, would go for one of the cheaper round Chimney Starters, like a TOMSHOO Chimney Starter, because I grill mostly at home and the rigid round chimney starter works great for me at home.


So, there you have another brief review on one of the best tools to use to start your charcoal. I hope you enjoyed my review on this Folding Chimney Starter.

To start charcoal without lighter fluid, or without any other chemicals, is an easy task if you have one of these tools.

  1. Oh wow! I didn’t know there was such a thing as a folding chimney for a barbeque. The truth is we were using regular lighter fuel until recently when we learned about the chimney method which is so much better and avoids the smell of the lighter fluid. We do a lot of barbeques on the beach and in the forest so this would be perfect. I love the fact that it has a storage bag too. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi there!! Tank you for reading my review on the folding chimney starter. Now you can get one of these for those beach barbecues, ideal! Cheers, Jacob
