  • Admin Review: Oct 2014: Somerset pellets have always been on top of my list. I miss the days I could find these at the Lowes in Woburn for less than $200 / ton. Those days are over however the quality of these pellets live on. Great pellet and a very safe bet for this season. August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets
    Nov 13th 2017 - Awesome burn and heat. You know that smell of a new laid hardwood floor in your house? well that is the smell when you cut into one of these bags! Super Job guys, keep it up.

    We have burnt lignetics, boo to them. Clinkers with a terrible burn. We have been burning Okanogan, very nice hot clean pellet to burn,can run the pellet stove for a 14 day cycle before cleaning to stove. The glass door is a tad ashey, but for the constant filling of it, not a worry in the world.Cannot get Okanogan pellets on the east coast right now. So, Trying these somerset pellets out, we will see.

    Bought a used Hastings St. Croix the season befor this. Had all kinds of problems with soot and clinkers. Had to do a serious cleaning every day. Stove repair expert told me they're a tempermental stove. Was burning Green Supreme pellets from Lowe's. This year bought 4 tons of pellets from Lowe's and discovered they were Somerset. Hadn't heard of them but now can go 3-4 days between cleanings. My stove guy affirmed that Somerset is the best and I was lucky to get them. Hope Lowe's has them again next season. Plan to buy a Harman P68 (new) this summer so I don't have to worry so much about a finicky stove and can go longer without filling the hopper. Hastings is working fine now but I don't know what I did to make it so. Think when I closed the air intake slightly the stove started burning clean and for long periods of time, but not sure. Just the blind squirrel thing. Did discover almost inaccessible air passages to clean with bent dairy brush.
    Anyhow, I'm loving the Somerset pellets.

    I am new to the pellet world, I have a Breckwell P23 Insert, I have read the manual through and through and would have to say I have a small case of OCD when it comes to maintenance of my pellet stove.

    I started the season off with Somerset Pellets and was spoiled, loved them, burnt very hot and clean, very little fines if any. Due to local store having New England and no one having Somerset anymore I went with a ton of the New England. Wish I would of searched out and purchased more of the somerset.

    I will definitely be looking for Somerset come next season. Great Pellet

    We have always used Somerset pellet and had great heat and limited ash but this year there is so much ash. We have a Quadrafire stove which we clean daily and the amount of ash is unbelievable. We are very disappointed in the quality of the product this year.

    I have an Englander Summer's Heat. Didn't like the Somerset precisely because they are so small, I got what I call pot creep, where the fire starts out small and lively, but after several hours, the pot is full and pellets don't seem to burn completely. Have to keep removing ash and clinkers, then finally shut stove down so it burns what's in the pot (doesn't burn completely). Have the opening in the hopper adjusted as small as possible. Other brands from Lowe's are much longer, thought this would help with the creep problem, but doesn't seem to matter what brand I use. And, this is on the lowest setting. Didn't notice any more heat with Somerset, either.

    Tractor Supply Sells Somerset in Marysville and Bellefontaine Ohio. So if you have one near you, inquire there.

    We have a Amaizablze, Model 7100 corn/pellet stove. I clean my stove regularly. I never had a problem with my stove until I tried Lee Energy pellets. Somersets are by far the best wood pellets we have used. I was getting ours at Menards and they dropped the Somersets. I bought the pellets they switched to, Lee Energy, and they are terrible. I took the left over bags back. 38 in all. TSC now has the Somersets and I drove there directly and purchased a ton. Boy am I glad we are back to the Somersets again. The heat they give off and the minimal ash is second to none. I learned the hard way.

    Somerset pellets are easily the best pellet I have ever burned since getting my Quadrafire Castille in 2007. Amazing heat output, nearly zero ash and they were priced fair. I would be burning them right now if my local retailers chose to sell them.

    As good as ever! Low ash, high heat, few fines. The best part is the great small and consistent size of the pellets.
