  1. 5 out of 5 stars.

    Excellent performance for its value!

    It took me less than twenty minutes to install. Lighting procedure is relatively easy thanks to its piezo-electric spark generator (like the one found on most gas grills) and its easy- view glass window. Also lighting instructions are easy to follow. The whole system is light in weight needing just to people to move around and install.

  2. 4 out of 5 stars.

    This product is reliable.

    I have just had this product installed and so far it is working great. I trust that this product will sufficiently last it's full warranty period and beyond. It will be a number of years before I need to comment again, I trust.

  3. 5 out of 5 stars.
