"It works good and is easy to use. Restarting a new fire with the hot coals is a breeze. Just don't try to scoop too much ash at a time."

"Great addition to your fireplace. Would be better with a longer handle and a deeper shovel, but a great tool none the less."

"This is a nice little tool, but it would be a lot more effective if it were much deeper. It takes a lot of time and shaking to go through a stove-full of ashes, and the coals fall over the edges of the scoop just as quickly as the ashes fall through. It's often more of a hassle to use than it's worth. If and when a 3-4 inch-deep model is available, I'll buy it."

"It's worth the money. It's more lightweight than I thought it would be. Works great if you clean your woodstove more often in small batches. It's very helpfull in that I don't have shovel everything out each morning just to start a fire from scratch. (tender, kindling, small wood etc.) The coals are right there ready to start my next fire for the day."

"I agree with the other reviewers--deeper would be nicer. This is a bit labor intensive. On the other hand, I've been looking for an ember recovery tool for years, so this is better than what I had before, which was trying to move embers around with a regular shovel."

"KoalKeeper users, we have heard your comments and appreciate your opinions. Unfortunately, a radical retooling of the KoalKeeper configuration, such as longer handle and/or larger scoop would force us to have it made in China and would drive up the price dramatically. You can cheaply lengthen the handle by adding a paint roller extension and as for the scoop size we recommend that you take your time and sift smaller amounts and only collect as many embers as you need to restart the fire. Thank you for your purchase and support. Paul Marley Inventor and Manufacturer or the KoalKeeper koalkeeper.com "
