Best Fireplace Bellows

Last Updated: December 18 2016

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep a fire going or get your charcoal grill heated up quickly. This is where a bellows comes in.

Used for centuries in blacksmith shops, bellows blow a steady direct stream of air wherever you point it. Since fires depend on oxygen, a blast of air from a bellows gets your fire going in a hurry.

No more fanning newspaper, or getting light-headed from trying to blow on a weak fire!
