This lighter makes igniting a fire as easy as pushing a button! Just touch the Looftlighter to a pile of charcoal, pull the trigger, wait until the charcoal is sparking and pull the Looftlighter back 2 inches. Continue to point the Looft at the charcoal for 60 seconds and the charcoal is lit! The revolutionary 1250°F airstream emitted by the electric powered Looftlighter has revolutionized lighters. This is the best way to light a ceramic grill or smoker we have ever seen!
