Positive Reviews

Hamers are my go-to pellet. They are a hardwood but burn hot and clean like a softwood and prices line up with the “junk” pellets from the big box stores , and as pellets go , the Hamers blow away all the other pellets at the price point.

I have been burning Hamers Hot Ones pellets for the past 3 years and have no complaints. They burn hot with very little ash. I noticed that I hardly ever get any clinkers with Hamers as apposed to the hardwood pellet brand I use to get at the big box stores

We have burned the hamers pellets in our harmon pellet stove for 2 years now. We love them! They burn hot and slow. Every once in awhile we hear a big chunk dropping but not very often. Would definitely recommend!

Love these pellets. Super dense and hot pellets. Low ash with an amazing hardwood floor smell. Super nice! Keep up the good work guys! Love your product

Negative Reviews

Used these for the last 2 years. This year there seemed to be more ash and burned dirty compared to Easy Blaze. Still better than box store brand.

Significantly more ash compared to other ‘premium’ brands, Hamer’s Hot Ones are moving down on my list of options.
