These burn well and do what I need them to do. They last about 3 hours and 30 minutes without salt and 4 hours and 20 minutes if I add a pinch of salt, They are a great price and good quality. I've used them mainly around my fireplace and also in various tea light holders around my home. They do look lovely in tea light holders scattered around the room, they burn clean and for me that's an added bonus.
I would certainly recommend these for day to day use or events. They are reliable.
