I use this grate in my small fireplace at home and LOVE it! It is great at getting a fire going and keeping it going. I have another grate that has large spaces and couldn't get a fire to keep going with that one. Yes, you have to push the ash through, but the fact that this grate seems to keep a fire going longer and hotter far outweighs that itty bitty downside in my opinion!

The slots in this grate are too small to allow the ashes to fall through on their own. You have to push them through when you put more wood in. The photo shows only one angle with little detail of the important bottom of the grate and their is no description of how far apart the bars are. This is not the same design as the larger grates on display in the [...] store, which have wider slots and would probably work OK. [...]

Replacement grate for Majestic 36 inch insert

      Comments about Vestal Cast Iron Grate (J18):

      After 20 years the grate in my Majestic wood burning insert got a little thin and I replaced it with this grate. My first observation is that the wood burns more fully to ashes with this grate. The grate is shallow and fits the firebox well. It is substantial and I imagine it will last for many years

            Comments about Vestal Cast Iron Grate (J18):

            We bought this to replace an almost 9 year old original that had finally burned up. That one had just 4 big pieces of metal to hold the logs. This one has a lot less air circulation so we have to build the fire differently. And it is a little bit more difficult to get the fire started. We have only used it for a few fires, so cannot speak to durability. It was inexpensive.

                Comments about Vestal Cast Iron Grate (J18):

                We have a wood stove and this grate works perfectly. It has shorter legs than most grates and the slots are smaller than most grates, so the coals stay on the grate long enough so that new logs put onto the coals will flare up pretty quickly.

                We had a grate like this that lasted a few years and when we needed to buy a new one, we could not find one like this in our local stores. We ended up getting the more traditional kind, which had longer legs and wider slots, but we had a heck of a time keeping a fire going with that grate because all the large coals would fall through the grate onto the floor of the wood stove and the length of the legs, any new wood put onto the fire would just sit there because it would be too far from the coals to heat up enough to flare up.

                I went online and found this one, listed at ACE Hardware although our local ACE did not carry it. They told me to order it and have it shipped to the store for no charge, which I did. It came in about three days.

                Our fires now are much easier to maintain -- they stay hotter and we are better able to regulate them and keep wood at a low, smoldering level, keeping our house comfortable but not too hot. Because the coals that fall through are still pretty close to the grate, we can put in a new log and it will light pretty easily.

                Love it!

                  In the past I purchased wrought iron grates that would only last a few seasons before the mesh would burn through. After reading many positive reviews about Vestal Cast Iron Grates I decided to give one a try and I am totally satisfied!

                    This is the best grate that I have found for my small manufactured fireplace. It's great that free shipping is offered to my local Ace Hardware store. It is far superior to the grate that came with my original fireplace. I have been using the Vestal Mfg J-18 grate for several years & they really do a great job & it is really tough & long lasting. I don't think there is a better product on the market.

                      It's hard to find a grate with shorter legs, that hover over the gas flames just right, plus I have a smaller fireplace. This grate is perfect, and the price is half of what the "fireplace" stores charge for grates. I love the option of buying online, having the item shipped to the store for pickup with NO shipping charge! And less time than having it shipped to my house!

                      This grating is heavy duty, great quality. We have purchased several gratings in the past and none would hold up to high heat very long, they pretty much melted down. Give me about a year of use and then I will be glad to comment further and/or increase the rating status on this particular grating. The pricing was reasonable as well.

                                  I use this grate in my small fireplace at home and LOVE it! It is great at getting a fire going and keeping it going. I have another grate that has large spaces and couldn't get a fire to keep going with that one. Yes, you have to push the ash through, but the fact that this grate seems to keep a fire going longer and hotter far outweighs that itty bitty downside in my opinion!

                                      I have a 1980's heatilator fireplace in my townhouse. The big box stores do not have a good grate. I ordered the grate from my local Ace on a monday and the grate was in by friday morning. The grate that this replaced was half the weight and had a 6 inch hole in the center. I burn only hardwood, and a little hard coal. I have built 2 "HOT" fires, Hot enough to make the entire grate GLOW, no problems no deforming.

                                        The slots in this grate are too small to allow the ashes to fall through on their own. You have to push them through when you put more wood in. The photo shows only one angle with little detail of the important bottom of the grate and their is no description of how far apart the bars are. This is not the same design as the larger grates on display in the [...] store, which have wider slots and would probably work OK. [...]
