So now in our new home, I was thrilled when SKG Group asked me to review a few Epica products including the Epica Bellows and Fireplace Tongs. I am set to create the perfect fire in the fireplace, out back in the firepit, or while camping using these new tools.
Using a scissor action and looped grips, the Fireplace Tongs make it super easy to move, adjust, or add wood in any fire. Made of a 26" long metal alloy, the tongs are sure to last and keep you a safe distance from the flames. You can even fold them down to 17" for storage (or easy transportation to campsites).
While I love fires of all kinds, I'm not exactly the best at starting them. It usually takes quite a bit of effort or my husbands help in starting anything more than a tiny flame. The Epica Bellows is perfect for small to medium fires with no plastic parts which could melt. I love using this and especially for camping.
I love displaying this next to my fireplace as the wood and leather design is beautiful in my opinion. It literally only takes me a few pumps to get my fires going and I don't have to worry about loading the fire with a ton of newspaper to get it started. You can tell almost immediately that both products are of a high quality and are built to last for quite some time.
Cost/Available to purchase: $19.50 Astor Bellows for Wood and Coal Fires
$11.95 Epica Fireplace Tongs, 26" Long, Log Grabber
Recommendation: These are quality made products sure to last a lifetime and more. I've been using these both a ton since they arrived and plan to look into more products from Epica. I love how easy both are to use and the cost is extremely reasonable.
