For foolproof fire-starting, we’re reaching for the Fire Lighter from American Fire Lighter Company. It’s easy to use, you don’t need newspaper or kindling, and it works every time. Brothers Todd and Chad Keehfus teamed up to create a clean-burning, beautifully hand crafted, American made product to get your fire going.
The Fire Lighter starter kit includes a stoneware jar, one bottle of the company’s Candle and Lamp Oil, and a FireStone attached to a steel rod. To get started, soak the FireStone in the oil-filled jar. Next, roll the FireStone lightly in fireplace ashes, light it with a match or lighter, and place the lit stone under the firewood in the fireplace. The Fire Lighter stone will burn for about 15 to 20 minutes, lighting the rest of the firewood.
Todd and Chad founded American Fire Lighter Company to celebrate the charm and spirit of New York's mountainous Adirondack region. They’ve also made it a priority to work with U.S. suppliers. The stoneware jar is handcrafted in the pottery corridor between Columbus, Ohio, and Wheeling, West Virginia, the lamp oil comes from Upstate NY, and the steel rods are made in Greene, NY, using machinery that dates back to the early 20th century. The Fire Lighter kits are assembled in Syracuse, NY. From start to finish, the American Fire Lighter is hard to resist.
