I got one for Christmas. Thank you Santa!
Where it really shines is how quickly I can fire up a small amount of coals. To fire up half a chimney (perfect amount of KB to do Minion method in my mini WSM) only takes five minutes using the Touch N Go on the Performer.
I have not done a side by side against the big chimney with equal amounts of coals in both to see if it is faster, but my informal impression so far says it is. I know it definitely is for the small amounts I use for minion method for the mini.
