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

"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."

"Great tool for continuous burning stoves. Other brands don't compare because they have holes instead of the more open grate. I would also agree though that a deeper/wider shovel would be helpful. I would also like a longer handle because I have a deep stove."

"I love this tool - makes using my warm ash vac a lot easier. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the tool would be better if made deeper because when you shake it to allow the ash to fall through, some of the coals fall off into the ash pile I am trying to create which makes it take longer to use. But, I'll keep using it as it's better than shoveling everything into a bucket getting ash everywhere."

"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."

"This needs to be at least twice the size it currently is and the openings need to be bigger so only larger coals are left in the stove. we light the stove in late October & keep it going until May going through about 7 cords. I cut some of the mesh out but the overall size is just too small. As for the handle, yes it is short but we use a pair of welding gloves anytime we work with the fire so that wasn't an issue. We found it FAR easier to just move the coals to one side, then back to the other (takes 15 seconds) and then use a large shovel we got from plow & hearth to remove the ashes, cleaning out the insert every 24-36 hrs. Our insert takes 20" logs & we've been burning for 3 winters. "
