Fabulous....if you like smoke without fire!

Dreadful idea, they just don't get hot, just a lot of smoke. We ended up tipping real coals on top to get it going. Won't buy again, in fact only bought in error

Rubbish, low heat and didn't last

I've used this style of instant lighting bags for years and this is by far the worst I've ever used! Had to use 3 bags and still didn't get much heat from the barbie. Will be going back to the previous supermarket for the ones I normally buy

Always works well but

but you really need two bags even for a teeny barbie as they burn down to very little very quickly

Great stuff!

I am an avid BBQ-er and this gives a nice even heat - sometimes you need two bags though to make it last for longer. Gets very hot and obviously once the coals have died down, cooks food well or is that just my superb cooking skills......

Convenient and quick

One of these charcoal bags lit in my smallish kettle BBQ means I'm all set to cook in 15 minutes. Very convenient, but now I'm thinking I could just buy loose charcoal and shovel it into old brown paper bags myself for the same effect.
