I have looked everywhere for this item. Thank goodness I finally found it. Have had one for years and wanted to replace it and did not know where to look. Ask every where, can't wait for my new one to arrive. Perfect size!

My last one bit the dust recently, so I ordered this one. Seems nice and heavy duty and does the job of keeping the embers where I want them. Only wish that it came wider.

I ordered this and fireplace mortar. The order came quickly and intact. We had to buy a different grate for our fireplace and it was too big so I ordered this retainer hoping to make the expensive grate we bought work. I was so happy to see the retainer did just that! Now we are burning less wood! I am so happy I decided to give this product a try, I do not regret it! Thanks Northline Express for the starter gift that was with our order, it works great also!

Wonderful product...all that we expected....thank you,,,recommend highly AAA+++
The retainer pattern should be smaller so the openings are smaller retaining more of the hot embers. Otherwise the retainer is above average.

We had never heard of an ember retainer. We have only used it twice but we love it. It saves wood by keeping the embers on the grate and insuring a more even burn. I ordered two not knowing how long they will last so I'll update on durability later.
This was a great find!! This ember retainer has made a world of difference by keeping fires burning steadily.I bought two of these and placed slightly offset on the grate. Now the embers stay in place - no longer falling thru as before and all that is necessary is to add a log or two if preferred to keep the fire going.Fires are burning longer, slower, and hotter as the fire is consistent while making the most of our wood supply, in fact now burning less because previously it took 3-4 times more wood as fires weren't staying lit. Thank you Northline!
