The Looftlighter is the perfect replacement for lighter fluid. The Looftlighter will ignite fires in a matter of seconds. When barbecuing, you can even use the Looftlighter to speed up the heating process of your coals so that your BBQ is ready for cooking in just a few minutes. The patented hot airstream process eliminates the chemical taste that infuses food on BBQs using lighter fluid and gas. The Looftlighter does not throw flames, but instead blows a hot airstream at 1256 degrees Fahrenheit. The Looftlighter is fully equipped with a safety casing that cools to the touch within a few seconds after use. To use, simply plug the Looftlighter into a wall socket, and touch the nose of the lighter to your wood or coals. In about 15 seconds sparks will appear. At this point, withdraw the Looftlighter by 3-6 inches and continue heating the same spot. Before you know it, you will have a roaring fire. The length of the power cord is approximately 10 feet. There is also an integrated bottle opener at the foot.
