Pilgrim Named Best Overall Fireplace Tools by Better Homes & Gardens
To get the most out of your cozy wood-burning fireplace, you need a great set of fireplace tools nearby to move logs around and help add more fuel if needed. They are also useful for cleaning ash. “If you have a wood-burning fireplace inside the home, fire tools are a necessity. You will need a minimum of a poker stick, ash shovel, ashtray, tongs and possibly even a broom. These tools help you to reposition the logs within the fire and remove excess ash and soot that can work its way into the air in the home” says Glenn Wiseman, sales manager at Top Hat Home

Pilgrim Named Among the Best Fireplace Tools and Accessories for 2024 by Better Homes & Gardens
Thick, heavy-duty handle handles and a double wall make the Pilgrim Home Hearth Ash Bucket the best fireplace tool for cleaning debris. It’s made from heavy gauge steel and weighs 5.5 pounds, so it’s already pretty heavy before you put ashes inside. The double wall also traps heat and keeps the bucket cool so you can pick it up without burning yourself. The bucket is 14 inches tall with a capacity of 7 quarts. It has a lid on the top which ensures the ashes do not spill out and prevents warm ashes from being a fire hazard. For safety reasons, it’s best to store the ashes in the bucket until they’ve completely cooled and are ready to be disposed of. You risk combustion by dumping hot ashes straight into the trash. Since it looks classy, you can set it by your fireplace for easy access without ruining the look of your living room. It comes with a lifetime warranty. Note that the bucket is only available in black.
