Light a Roaring Fire — No Kindling Required!

  • Portable pot with carrying handle
  • Ideal for the hearth, deck, summer torches and fire pits
  • Use with Lamp Oil, sold separately

The Cape Cod Firestarter is a piece of Yankee ingenuity from the days when wood fires were a necessity. Simply fill the cast iron pot half way with Lamp Oil, (sold separately, and let the soapstone soak. When lit, it will burn for about ten minutes — plenty of time for the fire to get going without kindling or newspaper. Works the first time, every time. Great for charcoal cooking, too.

  • Cast steel
  • 6-1/2" W x 9-1/2" H
  • 5" in diameter
  • Holds 16 oz. of oil

    Comments about Cape Cod Fire Starter:

    Finally found what I've been looking for! This product works great for starting our fires in the fireplace as well as the fire pit in the backyard. I use lamp oil rather than kerosene and it stays lit between 5 - 10 minutes. Plenty of time to ignite a 2-3" piece of wood. Don't need messy paper, leaves or small kindling anymore!

    Comments about Cape Cod Fire Starter:

    Instructions say to use kerosene which I have and it works great at less cost. It starts wood in the 2 inch range with no problem. Nothing else needed. The only draw back I've found is the lack of a place to put the hot rod & rock to cool before putting it back into the flamable liquid.

    I have been looking all over for one of these! I needed to replace a worn out one from years ago. Finally found it and just what I needed. I will be ordering another for a friend. This is the only place on the net I have found one of these.

    Comments about Cape Cod Fire Starter:

    We searched several companies for this particular style fire starter. No one else we searched still carried this item. It works great. One thing is for sure kindling is required as it is not a large enou long burning ball to light a full length fireplace or Woodstock log. For us the handle could be a little longer as we are using it in our older model wood stove. I would recommend it to anyone who has a fireplace or wood stove.

    Low Stone Porosity

          Comments about Cape Cod Fire Starter:

          I have an old cape cod lighter that I was looking to replace when the container started to leak. This stone isn't porous enough, and thus doesn't soak up enough oil. It's hard to light and keep lit, and it doesn't stay lit long enough to get the fire going.

          I'm going to use my old stone, but it's hardly worth the price just for a vessel that doesn't leak.

          My son loves it. Uses it for his mountain wood burning stove.
          My husband still uses paper..what a mess. I love the idea of not having to save and have to use crumpled papers.

                  I've seen these in the past at friend's houses and was trying to find something of equal quality. Unfortunately the two that I ordered as gifts arrived and did not meet my expectations. The pot itself is sturdy and seems well made. The lid however does not fit very well and tends to slide around the top of the pot. The handle for the pumice stone is too short and gets hot very quickly.

                  I purchased as a gift for my son. He said he has not had much luck using it to start fires in his fireplace.

                      I have a Gas Fire place and I needed something to cover the gas line and cut off valve. This is perfect. Did not need the oil, it is strictly decorative Very Happy....
