  • Admin Review: Aug 2017 -one of my favorites and best in the northeast! keep your eyes out for these. The bag is crap but the pellets are the Sh#@
    Nov 2017 - OK, the bag is not really that bad. Super awesome this year! highly recommend if you are a fan of the softwoods. These pellets burn super hot and low ash! Very nice, keep up the good work on these. Love the product.

    I used a little over three tons of La Crete pellets this past season (2014-2015). The are very good pellets. I have been burning Vermont Pellets for three previous seasons. Vermont Pellets were sold out early this past year and the dealer suggested La Crete. They are very good pellets but they do have more ash left after burning then the Vermont. For no other reason that the ash is less with the Vermont I am going back to the Vermont Pellets. I think most people would be satisfied with these pellets. The quote I got for pellets this year ((2015-2016) is $295.00 a ton for La Crete and $300.00 a ton for Vermont. If the Vermont Pellets are not as good as they have been in the past, I will start using La Crete. Unfortunately I have found out with most products that once they get a good hold on the market, the quality goes down.

    Bought Half Ton this year. No Odor as mentioned in other posts, but way too much sawdust. Burns Hot and Clean but a Lot of very Fine Ash. Filled up my Accentra Insert Ash Pan in a little over three days.
    Use them toward the weekend when I clean the stove.

    ordered theses at start of season, back ordered so went with ambience instead, wish I waited for them, just went and picked up some, heat is far better than ambience, ash isn't too bad. these will be my choice next heating season, going to order early, I use a Harman xxv to burn.

    I am a new pellet stove user, Comfortbilt HP22.

    I had been using a big box store brand. Yesterday I bought a couple of Crete bags. My initial impression: More heat, more thorough burn, fewer clinkers. The only downside I note is a more pronounced odor in the house.

    Bought 3 metric tons, they were pricey but had no choice as pre buy was backed up severely. They are good pellets and I am very happy with them. Few bags had holes and had some big chunks in them but otherwise I am very satisfied. Would buy them again.

    I decided to get some of these pellets to as an experiment for my stove. I recently bought an old 1500 sq cape that had a Napolean pellet stove already installed. The previous owner used NewEngland Pellets, unfortunately I didn't buy in time. I'm currently running experiments to see which pellet burns hottest and less ash so that I can buy in time next year. LaCrete's are nice and hot, hotter than the Okanagan Platinum pellets I tried, however they do produce a fair amount of ash.

    I got 5 tons for this year as a substitute for LG(they didn't have them on my delivery date). Not really cold yet but I can say for sure they do not create clinkers like some other brands I have used in the past. When my stove isn't going full power to heat my 2200sf two story home, clinkers tend to form on the sides of the pot. So far about 5 bags in and nothing but some light fine ash. Based on this minimal use and prior comments I'm quite confident that I'll have a nice warm hassle free winter.

    I echo what was said above with the added caveat that cleaning my stove was so much easier with La Crete Pellets than with the previous brands I had been using.

    Burned a 1/2 ton so far in my Quad CB1200. They do indeed burn very hot! Only pellet that I've found to be hotter is the Okies Douglas Fir. They have way more ash than I expected, where I have to clean ash pan every 5-6 days. There are also more fines in these pellets than any other pellets that I've tried. My auger jammed and stove shut down after about 15 bags so I cleaned out the hopper and was amazed at the amount of fines and sawdust that was at the auger feed.....completely clogged up! Once vacuumed and refilled, stove loves to burn these hot pellets! No clinkers, but a lot of fly ash to deal with. They are pricey at $295/ton at Dodge Grain in Salem, NH. I will use them again, just need to be more willing to keep an eye on/clean stove more often.
