What looks like a giant curling iron for really big hair, but acts like a hand held smithy's hearth?The revolutionary Looftlighter Charcoal Starter from Sweden is possibly the most environmentally friendly improvement you could make to your backyard barbeque scene, and will help get your burgers to the table in record time. It eliminates smelly, unhealthy petroleum fumes from your backyard barbeque forever - your neighbors will love you for it. Better yet, buy one for them. And besides getting rid of unappetizing aromas, the Looftlighter solves the whole dirty hassle of starting up a charcoal grill. Go from cold briquettes straight from the bag (not the fuel-soaked quick-light stuff, either) to raging flame in one minute without ever touching a coal. Do this a couple of times to a large pyramid of briquettes and in 10 minutes you're ready to throw on the steaks.

Forced hot air creates a rate of temperature rise that exactly duplicates a blacksmith's forge, and yet, because of the heat dispersing perforated shield, it cools to the touch in 15 seconds after use. Almost as easy as and much less expensive than a gas grill, and can be safely used indoors to start firewood in the fireplace or stove. The 115 V/60 Hz 1500 W Looftlighter will be the talk of your summer. It makes a great gift, too. See why the New York Times raved about it.The Looftlighter is a remarkable tool and whenever a new tool comes along that really excites us, we jockey to be the one to take it home for testing. Our pictures show the actual results of that test.

  • Any Man With A BBQ Needs One Of These

    Scott, 9/27/2015 This thing is awesome. If you do not have one ....hand in your man card. Works great and lights the hardwood charcoal within seconds. The first time using it I thought it would be instant heat. Takes about 20 seconds and then you have red coals in a 1" pattern.
  • Best Grill Starter I've Used In 30+ Years

    Chris, 10/6/2013 I've been using a BGE for 34 years, primarily with lump charcoal. I have never use lighter fluid starters. I've used crumpled newspaper and kindling to ring type charcoal starters and this is, by far, the best method for starting a grill I've ever tried. I've been using mine for nearly 2 years and still like it as much as when it was new,. Highly recommend.
  • Great Idea

    William McGee, 9/16/2013 This is a great idea but the ad is misleading because as it turns out it's made in China.

    Response by: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thank you for your review. You are correct: the Looftlighter is indeed made in China. We did not, however, intend to mislead customers. It is made for a Swedish company to their quality standards, and it was designed and engineered in Sweden."
  • HOT!!

    William, 6/6/2011 This is on slick item! it is like a curling iron on steroids! It is no louder than a vacuum cleaner and it comes with a very long cord. You hold it to your coals and within a few seconds your coals will start to smoke and soon there will be be fire! I use it on three areas on a large pile of charcoals. It is faster than using lighter fluid and it smells great! nice wood smoke aroma! The only thing is that it takes a little bit longer to cool down than what it states. I also tried using it on my wood stove and I have to say it is easier to just us wood starters.(at least for me) I have to say that in a pinch it would start a nice fire in my wood stove. Maybe it would be better in a fireplace. This is one of the best items I have ever bought! I use to use those electric coal starters and they last for a season or two. But this will last a very long time!!!
