Bought this as a “ family Christmas present” for our daughter’s fam. They had recently put in a fire pit. She says it is awesome! I would caution folks to be sure and purchase the butane cylinders as well..... it does not come with one.More > < Less

About Bison Airlighter

Quick Burn

Whether you're trying to light a campfire, charcoal grill, or wood stove, fire-starting can be a time-consuming, smoky, and smelly process. But with Bison Airlighter's super-charged butane lighter, you can go from zero to lit in seconds flat. There’s no need for chemical starters or lighter fluid.

Developed by The Bison Company in upstate New York, the commercial grade Airlighter jets a 4-inch, 2600 degree flame and fans it with pure air, quickly dispersing the blaze throughout a wood or charcoal pile. In less than 5 minutes a smoking hot fire is ready when you are (perfect for getting food on the grill quickly). An adjustable grip and extended barrel make the Airlighter easy to strategically place, while special technology leaves the handle cool to the touch.

With a child-proof lock, integrated LED flashlight and bottle opener, this handy tool will be a favorite essential, indoors and out, all year long.
