Definitely Works
Haven’t used it much yet because the weather warmed up as soon as we got it, but it does make logs and it makes them well. We look forward to using it again.

What’s So Special About It?
To me, I’m better off just rolling up my newspapers manually. It takes a lot less time than rolling them up with this product.

Can’t Get It to Roll Tightly
Overall the product does what it’s designed to do, and it’s easy to use. Yet no matter what I do, I can’t get it to roll the log as tightly as I think it should. I’ve tried wetting the paper and folding it. These things help, but I’m still not totally satisfied. Make sure you soak the paper and let it dry completely before you roll it, or you’ll get a TON of smoke in your fire!

Still Getting Used To
I just started using this. The instructions were somewhat confusing, but I managed. The first time I tried to start a piece of newspaper I had some trouble, but I’ll get used to it.

So Easy a Senior Citizen Can Use It!
This roller is easy to put together and use, and the delivery and service of the company was great. I'm disabled and advanced in years, but I have had no problem using this thing. It takes a little patience and experimentation, but you can quickly learn the optimal way to use the roller. I recommend folding the paper over about an inch and then sliding that segment into the roller. When I’ve got most of that sheet rolled in, I do the same to the next sheet and insert that one. Once the log is finished, it’s not hard to get off the roller. You simply need to wriggle it back and forth if it’s on there tighter. I recommend wearing gloves to keep your hands clean, and I also find soaking the paper in water to be unnecessary. You can use dry paper. If you go that route, you should use string, tape or something similar to hold the log together until you’re ready to burn it. If I can use this contraption, so can you!

Giving Me Fits
Based on the reviews I read, I figured I could figure this thing out without a problem. Assembly was a piece of cake and the instructions were adequate. (By the way, don't just force the spindle into the handle. Make sure you use the screw in handle to attach the spindle.) But when it came to using this thing, what a disaster! The spindle twisted and collapsed on me! The device is completely unusable now, and I’m going to have to find a way to replace the spindle. I’ll give it another try since the rest of the device is sturdy. But I can’t believe the main feature just malfunctioned like that on my first try!

How to Use
I love the way this recycles paper into something that keeps people warm. I recommend creasing an edge of the paper a couple of inches when inserting it into the roller slot. Then wind that sheet until you’ve got about 6 inches of paper left and insert a thin stack of papers (maybe 3-6 sheets thick) into the fold of the original paper. Continue this pattern. (Actually, any kind of paper works in this roller, including regular printing and copy paper.) At points, during the process you should tug firmly on the end of your paper roll, and crank the roller while holding the edge so that the log gets even tighter. When you’ve completed your log, take the spindle out of the device, and turn it back about a half turn to loosen the paper that’s in the slot. This will ease the removal of the log from the spindle.

Takes Some Getting Used To
It’s not hard to use, but doing it right takes some practice (thought it’s not the roller’s fault). The logs I’ve made so far turned out alright, but I’d like to get better at making them tighter. The logs I’ve made work well in an outdoor fire, but I want to get better at this before I start trying to use them in my home fireplace.

Spindle Is Lacking
The spindle that you use to roll the paper isn’t very sturdy. It gets contorted and bent easily, so that makes this roller hard to use.

Passing Grade
Didn’t take much to put it together—was able to do it in one evening. However, the directions aren’t very clear. The metal plate fits under the rods—not in between them. Don’t force it! It’s not necessary. It took us five-ish minutes to make a log, and it took two people. Works well. I also recommend that you soak the log with water after you finish making it and let it dry. This will meld the paper together completely and help it burn better.

Easy and Enjoyable
The price is reasonable. This is the first one I’ve ever bought, but I found it easy to assemble and easy to use. It works really well, and it’s even kind of fun transforming my old newspapers into “wood.”

Phone a Friend!
The directions are a bit lacking, but adequate. I can see where some people would get confused, but on the whole it assembles easily enough. The roller works great, but you really need a friend to help you. It’s best if they feed while you roll. I find that these logs burn best when the fire is hot, so I suggest starting the fire with real wood and letting it burn hot; then add these.

No Problems for Me
The device is easy to put together with the instructions given. I recommend using a spray bottle to wet the paper when you make the logs.

I had a dickens of a time putting the thing together. For instance, I had to bend the rounded bottom piece really hard in order to fit it into the grooves. Getting the newspaper wet to catch the sheet wasn't working well, so I folded the pieces together instead. That worked okay, but the paper logs don’t burn completely. (You’d think paper would burn just fine!) I quickly decided this thing wasn’t worth my time and unloaded it at a consignment store.

Slight Assembly Modification Necessary
Here’s what I did. I used a drill to make some pilot holes in the handles ends so it would be easier to start the screws. Then I slackly attached the rods to the handle on both ends and inserted the tray (while keeping everything on a level surface). Finally, I tightened the handles and rods. Piece of cake.

Don’t Be Fooled
This thing looks great online, but it’s hard to put together, and the instructions are unhelpful. You definitely need someone else to help you. You have to force the bottom plate into place, and the other person can then tighten the screws. Then, the handle doesn’t have any kind of a stop to keep it from poking out on the other side. Rather disappointed.

Recycles Paper!
The instructions were missing, but we still managed to get it together after some misfires. I like the way it works, and I love recycling my paper into fire fuel!

Suggestion for Use
I’ve had one of these for a long time, but I’ve never really used it and I don’t have any instructions. One person told me to put paraffin oil in the bottom pan, and then as I rolled the paper together, it would moisten the logs. I think you’re also supposed to dry out the logs before you burn them. I’m looking forward to using mine to make some logs for the winter!

Instructions Are Fine but Could Be Slightly Better
This product really is quick and easy to put together. Other reviewers had me worried, but I didn’t have any trouble. The instructions are a reliable guide, but let me add a couple of minor things that should probably be there and that will make your assembly easier. First, when you’re inserting the bars in the frames, keep the nuts loosely attached. After you’ve inserted the plate, then tighten them (as the instructions indicate). Second, make sure you take the wooden plug out of the pipe before you insert it into the handle. I’m happy to have this thing since making paper logs by hand was irritating and time-consuming.
