We went skiing in Utah last March, and stayed at a fabulous hotel. We had 2 fireplaces in our suite and the hotel staff would come in and light them upon request. They always got a blazing fire going immediately and the secret to their success was... EZ fire starters.
It is the most amazing product, and we as well as many of our friends are now using it. If you have real fires at home then I highly recommend that you try it.
