Burns well, but too much ash

No, I do not recommend this product.
I am surprised that several other reviewers have reported low ash content with this brand of pellet. I have experienced quite the opposite. In my experience burning about a half a ton of these, I have seen a large amount of ash from these pellets. I have had to empty the ash dump once already, when I would have emptied it only twice the whole season versus the Turman brand pellet. Along with that, I have had to turn up the heat an extra notch to produce the same amount of heat as the other brand I have used. Pricing is a bit lower, but I have to consider if it is worth the extra cleaning and maintenance for the 25 cents in savings per bag.
I ordered these pellets for pickup at store and when picking up was given another brand when I explained that is not what was advertised on your web site "Presto-to Log" I was told that any picture is placed there and not necessarly the brand name as shown. What is shown on your site should represent what is going to be provided to the coustomer not some other brand name
I purchased a half ton of the Presto pellets and I am very satisfied with their heat output and amount of ash produced. They do not have the resin content of Stove Chow pellets and as such don't build up residue in the burn pot like Stove Chow did. They burn clean and consistent.
I would not hesitate to recommend these and at the price Home Depot is selling at they are a bargain.
I was only able to get about 6 bags of these and they worked out great. Burned hot and very little ash. But when it came time to order a ton these were not available and ended up with Bayou brand which are horrendous. They were the same price but worlds apart in quality & value. These I'd definately buy again. This is the nature of wood pellets, every year the quality changes and you never know what you are getting. I should have ordered a ton of these when they were available. Lesson learned.

Very disappointed with the new pellets Home Depot is selling. Makes a ton of ash which requires the burn pot to be cleaned every 1/2 of bag. Heat'rs are not worth the savings.
the pellets you had online are not available in my Littleton n.h. store. no big deal I got the same pellets that I got in august (green supreme) which burn very well 18-20 hours per bag. the( fire side pellets) I think are much better you get about 18-22 hours per bag and cost the same but burn slower
I have used these pellets for the past 3 years and I have found them to be of high quality with little clinker. I will be continuing to use them. The price is better than most and they burn hot. My stove is large and I use at least one bag every 24 hours. I am an HVAC tech for a living and, I can certify that these pellets are as good or bettter than other preimum grade pellets like "Golden Fire" and are less expensive.
We bought 5 bags. 1st bag the pellets were not of uniform size, nor did they smell like wood. In fact they smelled like garbage! They jammed up the auger. Pellets were up to 4 inches long! The 2nd bag was no better. We will be returning the unused bags.
I tried the home depot brand of pellets, The HDX pellets. They are terrible, They leave a heavy amount of carbon deposit all over the stove, the only thing I could say good about them was, very little fines. They dont burn very hot, and they burn very quick. The heats pellets at home depot are a much better buy at the same price.
We just installed our pellet stove and before purchasing a ton of pellets, we bought several different brands. Some fell apart and clogged the auger, others did not burn consistantly resulting in the flame going up and down, which kicks on the combustion blower. These seem to burn just fine, not a lot of ash, and consistant. We will be buying a ton of these this weekend!
Excellent product....come back every year to buy---(for two years since i bought my home with a pellet stove). This year I am buying a pallet. Very cost effective and efficient. Does burn less ash (meaning, less clean up). Would reccomend to anyone using a pellet stove. Thx Home Depot.
