Might as well be a magic wand

I have only had this lighter for a few weeks but it is so easy and so effective. I can get my bbq going within minutes and I can get it so hot that I can actually start cooking within 10 minutes if needed. Truly amazing

Much better than matches and lighter fluid

Getting a consistent start of the grill had been a hit and miss endeavor. I took a chance after seeing a video on the Looflighter. I can now easily get 3 or more places started and burning in under 5 minutes and grilling faster than ever before with lighter cubes, fluid, matches.

Great approach!

This product is safe in that it does not get too hot during operations. It is clean, with no open flame. No liquids. And you do not have to transfer any burning coals, which is an added "safety" factor. You do have to be patient while lighting the coals; but that said, using this product still takes less time and effort than taking the "paper/chimney" approach.

Bought mine and two for gifts

Just got my Looflighter this week, first challenge was lighting the wood for my wood burning pizza oven. First time, use my fire was up and burning well within 4 minutes. The next day used it on my Weber Kettle to smoke a pork shoulder. I ring the charcoal around the grill and light the end of the ring. Charcoal was hot and meat on the grill in about 10 minutes. Buying two for gifts for individuals who burn wood fireplaces.

Looflighter is a game changer

My biggest criticism of charcoal grilling has always been the lighting time: want to eat at hamburgers at 7:00 p.m., light the grill at 6:00 p.m. and pray the coals don't go out. No longer! Light a couple spots in the charcoal, and you're at 500F in 20 minutes. I don't even need my gas grill anymore... just gave it away to charity.

Great Product

I've used the Looftlighter for about eight months now . It lights the charcole in about three minutes and I'm grilling or roasting in ten to fifteen minutes. I bought the Looftlighter to use with my Kamado Grill, I haven't used my Webber gas grill since, I so I gave it to my son in law. Looftlighter makes lighting charcole a doddle. Highly recommend it.

Looftlighter

My son has one and uses this with his Green Egg, I just got an Egg and starter myself and can't wait to start smoking. Biggest pain is starting the coals, this product solves that problem. Coals heat in minutes, no fumes or mess, just instant heat. Finally something that takes the one pain out of grilling!! A must product!!

It's actually FUN to light your charcoal now ;-)

One of the very few products I've purchased that does EXACTLY what it claims. It'll start hardwood lump charcoal or Kingsford in minutes. This is a well-made device that has a manufacturers two year warranty. I emailed Looftlighter with additional questions and imagine my surprise when I received a reply from the Inventor, Founder, and CEO (yes, there IS a Richard Looft!) Whether you own a Napoleon charcoal grill as I do, or a Kamado Egg, this will take care of your charcoal lighting needs

Best charcoal starter ever

Since using the Looftlighter i will never use another method. I have a Green Egg and I tried everthing to make lighting the wood bricks. I used electric, blocks, cages, i tried it all until i got the Looftlighter. Now I spend three to four min and my fire is roaring. If anything happens to the one i have i will buy anohter as fast as i can. Expensive but well worth the money.

I would recommend it.

I use it to start lump charcoal in my Kamado Joe. It works fine, and but takes longer than I anticipated. I will be getting a chimney to fire up only one lump and then pack it.

Aug 5, 2020

It works, but...

Certain lump coals are easier to light with this tool than others. Nature Glo, BGE, Royal Oak, and Cowboy lump all light fairly easily. When going for a long cook and using the larger KJ brand lump, I don't even bother with this electric lighter...much faster to use the Weber starter cubes. Take a little patience and practice (lighting the edges of a lump coal works best), but once you have the hang of it, my experience has been you will have your fire going in about 5 to 8 minutes
