Super hot in seconds · Flame-free · No chemicals or lighter fluid needed
Spark a charcoal or wood fire with an electric lighter that sidesteps gas, flame, and lighter fluid to do its job. Instead, this fire starter creates super-heated air that gets up to 1100 degrees Fahrenheit in about a minute. Its safety casing cools within seconds, and a built-in bottle opener makes it an all-in-one grillside and fireside essential.
Looftlighter Maker (and namesake) Richard Looft ended up ordering a pizza after grilling—and then tossing out—a chicken. Why? It tasted like lighter fluid. Richard knew there had to be a more effective way to light charcoal. After experimenting by putting charcoal in the toaster and using an old vacuum cleaner to create airflow, he realized he had figured out a better alternative.
The electric Looftlighter can produce a super-heated air flow—like, around 1100 degrees Fahrenheit—within seconds, making it a super-fast way to light charcoal and wood. Its safety casing cools within seconds and there’s no gas, flame, or best of all, lighter fluid needed.
