Excellent & no chemicals by Rachel Carpenter

5 stars out of 5

Chef's Candle

I've found the chef's candles to be very useful and they do work (I wasn't sure they would when I first saw them).
These candles are excellent value compared to odour-elimintaing sprays and there are no nasty chemicals that can cause/exacerbate asthma and lung problems.
Depending on how long they're used for, the wick can burn out before all the wax is used (this happens with the tealights too) but left-over wax can be reused:-
If you collect the left-over wax it can be melted in a metal bowl or an old saucepan placed inside another pan of simmering water. Ready-made wicks for containers can be bought cheaply in craft stores and placed in the original candle tin or another suitable candle container (tealight containers and short wicks are also available in shops). Then simply pour in the melted wax and allow to get completely cold before use.
I've been using the tealights recently but have used the tins before and I've found that excess wax can be re-used about twice before it loses its effectiveness.

It Works! by Catherine

Chef's Candle

The candle has a lovely scent and it really does remove cooking smells. I also noticed not all the wax was gone after one burned out, so it was useful to have Rachel's tip about reusing it.

At last - one that works! by Sheena

5 stars out of 5

Chef's Candle

Great candle! I've used various odour dispelling candles in the past but none of them has really worked. This one is great - it really does eliminate odours, even fish and a particularly whiffy cat food that Oscar likes!
My husband bought this candle so this is the first time I've read the reviews. On the face of it the tea lights look better value - 5 hours longer for around £1 less, but I've been using this tin for ages and it's still going strong. I might try the tea lights next though to compare.
