Just wondering if anyone has used a wood pellet basket? It is a manually loaded wood pellet burning device for use in place of ordinary firewood in a slow combustion heater.

In short, it's basically a metal box with a grate on all sides. You fill it up with pellets then light it.

Obviously it's not suitable for everyone, wood pellets are more expensive than ordinary firewood, but I'm curious nonetheless.

Like these examples from the US. A quick internet search finds that they are also available quite easily in NZ from various manufacturers.
