What Are Pellet Baskets?

A pellet basket is a fireplace accessory in the form of a metal basket. You place the basket inside a wood stove or fireplace; allowing you to heat your home by burning wood pellets.

Metal pellet baskets are great alternatives to costly wood pellet stoves.

Requirements

There are very few requirements for using pellet baskets for heating. If you already have a wood stove or fireplace, you're pretty much set.

You don't need a special wood pellet stove to burn wood pellets. A pellet basket can be used with any wood-burning stove or fireplace, so it does not require a special electric fan or blower.

No installation required—just place the basket in your stove. If later, for some reason, you want to build a regular log fire, the pellet basket can simply be lifted out—it's as easy as that.

Testimonials

I have to say it is wonderful. We have used it and what a difference it makes in our house. I have given your information out to at least 3 of my friends so far. This allows us to burn wood pellets without the high cost of a pellet stove. Thank you for the great product. Melini from Vermont

Got my pellet basket today and wanted to say thank you—looks great! Your workmanship is top notch and I really appreciate you modifying the legs for me. It turned out beyond excellent! Heavy duty product—pictures do not do it justice. John from Illinois
You are awesome. Thanks for your consideration and prompt attention and glad you would answer my questions. Kathie from Iowa

Benefits of Heating With Wood Pellets

There are many reasons people choose to heat their homes with wood pellets instead of firewood.

Burns hotter & more efficiently than conventional logs

Our single-bay pellet baskets can hold 12 lbs (5.4 kg) of pellets and can produce 35,000 BTUs per hour over the course of 3 to 4 hours—enough heat to keep your house comfortably warm.

Our 3-bay pellet baskets can hold 16 lbs (7.25 kg) of pellets.

Fraction of the price of oil & electric heat

Pellet prices are more stable and are not as greatly affected by foreign price fluctuations since they can be bought from companies within your own country or continent.

Buy Wood Pellets at Retail Stores

You can buy wood pellets at retail stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards, Ace, TSC, Blain's, Farm & Fleet, and Rural King.

Search For an Area Wood Pellet Dealer

If you live in the United States or Canada, the Pellet Fuels Institute has a great list of wood pellet dealers, broken down into regions.

Burns cleaner, safer & leaves less residue

Pellets contain only 3% - 6% moisture, compared to 15% - 30% in firewood.

Wood pellets greatly lessen creosote buildup and the chance of flue fires since they burn cleaner than regular firewood.

Only 1 coffee cup of ash is left at the end of the day.

Easier to store than conventional firewood

Pellets are easier to store than conventional firewood, with no household litter from bark or bugs.

Wood pellets come in bags which may be bought singly, or an entire season's fuel can be purchased all at once.

Using Pellet Baskets

How To Light Wood Pellets



  1. Place the pellet basket in your wood stove or fireplace & then fill the basket with pellets
  2. Have your damper (or air intake) set for maximum air flow
  3. Light pellets with a gelled fire starter
  4. Enjoy the efficient heat of wood pellets

Adjusting the Temperature

Use your stove's damper to choke your airflow down and regulate the temperature.

Unlike pellet stoves, no fan is needed to circulate air within the stove. There is enough air flow through the basket itself to allow the pellets to burn with a flame.

You can always add more pellets, when needed, with hot pellets. Simply move the hot pellets with a metal scoop to one side of the basket. Add fresh pellets beside the hot pellets. The hot pellets will ignite the fresh pellets and will not smolder as much as putting them directly on top of the hot pellets.

Readjust your air settings for a safe working temperature.

Fireplaces need some kind of door, like wood stoves, for optimal results to help retain heat.
