The Original Cook's Matches
Advantages: Long length and thicker wood means they don't burn as fast
Disadvantages: More expensive than other matches
I always buy matches for the house as I always think it is good to have some in just in case of power cuts etc so that I can light candles. I also use them to light the gas stove on my cooker as the electric power switch has been broken for ages so I go through quite a lot.
The ones that I buy 99% of the time are The Original Cooks Matches as I just think they are better quality and they always light first time and I find the length of them to be really good so that I don't burn my fingers.
They cost 75p a box but you get loads of matches in a box. They are about 2 inches long so are a lot longer than most matches and they are also thicken and less spindly than other matches. These ones don't snap in half when trying to strike them on the strip to light them.
When you light them you don't have to rush and light whatever it is your lighting in seconds so that they won't burn all the way to the bottom as these matches will burn a lot longer than most meaning that you can take your time with what you are lighting without worrying that you are going to burn your fingers.
Because of their good length they are ideal for using with my Yankee burner when I am trying to light a tea light that is already inside. I have tried with a lighter to do this and burnt my finger but because these matches are longer I can get the flame inside the burner and light the tea light without the flame going near my fingers.
They would be great for taking away on a camping or fishing trip as the box is really sturdy and although it isn't waterproof it does better at repelling water than most. A little bit of moisture wouldn't do any damage to the box and you can wipe clean the box if you spill anything on it.
These matches are fantastic matches and much better than cheaper alternatives. The longer size is much more convenient and the flame lasts a long time without blowing out or burning down the wood in milliseconds.
