  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Son loved it I bought this as a birthday gift for my son. He usually is hard to please but was very happy with the looftligjter. He grills a lot and it gets a lot of use. I am so happy to find something he likes so much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My second Looftlighter It is fabulous to have a grill tool that allows you not to use lighter fluid or, make a mess with a chimney. If you are a charcoal grill user this is a must have tool. My only "complaint" is that sparks fly a bit as you're getting the fire going. My first Looftlighter served us well for many years before kicking the bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast fires and ready to grill! Purchased this item on sale a few weeks ago and put it to the test about six to eight times now. Works like a champ, have hot coals up and running in 10-15 minutes max vs the half hour plus in the past. No more waiting for the chimney to start, retired it to the garage for now and using my grill much more often for quick meals. As far as the sparks issue, yes it does generate them on fresh lump coal so use appropriate caution. The only negative is the long cord is a bit much to store but balanced out by being able to easily reach to my grill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Firestarter I have only had the chance to use it a couple of times, but I am quite impressed with it's performance. It is even better than I expected. It only takes a couple of minutes to get a fire started using lump charcoal and within 10 minutes I am able to cook steaks or anything else I want.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Works! Purchased this to light the wood pellets in my smoker since the auto lighter no longer works and we were reduced to using a blowtorch. This is much easier and safer to use. Recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, but sparky I won't be be using this regularly, but if I need a fire NOW, I'll pull out this bad boy. BUT, the combo of natural charcoal, heat, and forced air created very hot sparks that didn't extinguish themselves quickly. Could certainly damage a shirt from hot sparks landing on your arm. So, be careful. The blower was nice in that you can blow bursts of air into the vents at the base of the grill (Big Green Egg in my case). That REALLY gets things moving.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product This has replaced the chimneys that use newspaper to start my charcoal. No more smoke and no more waiting. Highly recommended.
