Hamer's Hot Ones Wood Pellet Fuel

Hamers Hot Ones pellet fuel is made from clean sawdust, much of which comes from our own lumber operations in the heart of the Appalachian Region of the United States in West Virginia. Distribution area is in the mid Atlantic and NorthEast States (WV, VA, PA, MD, NJ, OH, CT, Del, NC and Mass.)

Why Choose Hamer's Hot Ones? The dust is compressed into pellets that produce clean, reliable heat with low emissions and an extremely small amount of ash.
Experience - We are the oldest residential pellet manufacturer in the Eastern United States. We know how to provide quality pellets consistently.

    I have used Hamer Hot Ones in my Harman Accentra and am now using them in my Harman Hydro Flex 60. They burn hot, have low ash,and have few clinkers. I have experimented with Appling (very bad, don't use these), Turman (good pellet), O'Malley (good pellet). I have concluded the Hamer Hot ones are the best. Highly recommend!

    I have been using Hamers pellets for several years and have considered them to be better than any I had used before. I didn't realize just how good they are until I made the HUGE mistake of buying some Greeat American Pellets to use in warmer weather. The fact is that Hamers put out so much heat I have to shut the stove down when it gets into the 50's not to overheat the house. As it turned out I had to set my Whitfield stove to 3 (of 5) using the Great American pellets to equal the heat that I get from Hamers set on 1.

    Picked up a few bags of these to see what the hype was about, these burned as hot as any other hardwood pellet, soot /ash low,
    Very dusty lots of smalls, few oversized pellets, to me these are not a magical pellet for my stove and are not worth the overpriced $6.00 a bag in my area.

    I used to be a fan of Hamer's Hot Ones. However, they have become too dusty out of the bag, and they leave too many clinkers. I no longer buy Hamer's, and my daughter and son in law will not buy them either, as they have experienced the same problems, and our stoves are of different types and manufacturers.

    I have a Quadra Classic Bay 1200 insert that I purchased in October 2004. I have used Hamer's pellets from the beginning, except a short period when I ran out and my neighbor gave me some of his pellets that were not Hamer's. I don't believe, to me that these pellets performed like Hamer's had up to this point. I have never used anything since then and I don't intend to do so either unless I can't find them around where I live. Then I would have no choice. As far as Hamer's burning clean, I have only had to routinely clean my unit, which is every month in the winter and before the summer months when we don't use it. When I find a product that I am pleased with I am faithful to it. From the beginning to now I have used Hamer's and am very happy with the product. I get my Hamer's at Ace Hardware which is less than 1 mile from me, I hope they don't quit carrying them.

    Simply the best wood pellets I have ever used in my Brickwell Big E. High heat, low ash. Only problem as they are super expensive in CT. Right now they go for $285 a ton. When I can go to lowe's and get a ton of average pellets for $219 it makes more sense for the cheaper pellets. I might pay $20 more a ton for them but not $65.

    I have a Lopi Yankee Bay stove (Travis Industries), and have tried numerous brands of pellets over the years, including Okanagan, Barefoot, New England, Turman, and Cubex.

    Hamer's are unmatchable in my experience for heat output. My stove has six auger settings: at setting 1 these put out enough heat for late fall/early spring. At 2 they get me through the bulk of the winter. At 3 you can't stand near the stove for more than a few seconds.

    Ash is generally pretty low, and while I have had occasional exerience with clinkers and blocked airflow, I think it was only with one particular batch. Some batches produced no clinkers at all.

    Of course, your mileage may vary; for my stove, I'm done experimenting and this is my only pellet going forward.

    Burnt 1.5 tons this season. Great heat and the lowest ash in my stove. They did clinker in the pot some but I was tripling my burn time between cleanings. A little scrape of the pot-no big deal. I liked these pellets alot. The short pellet length was great for my Enviro FPI. The hopper can be a pain to fill at times but the Hamers packed in it real well.
