If you’re in hot pursuit of grilling perfection, you know that the way you light the coals matters. Douse it with lighter fluid and drop a match, and you’re a soon-to-be-eyebrowless BBQ clown. Instead, try Looftlighter. The plug-in fire starter blasts super-concentrated 1200-degree-F air to light your coals with no chemical interference.
Let’s lean in (not too close) for a look.
Looftlighter Fire Starter Specs
The Looftlighter is a big wand charcoal lighter (about a foot and a half long, 2.6” diameter) with a vented barrel that directs concentrated hot air. Plug it in with the 10-foot AC cord, then point and shoot. Demonstration videos on Huckberry or Looft’s website will get you caught up, but it’s pretty self-explanatory. Blast anything with air at an apocalyptic 1200 degrees and it’s bound to light up.
Flash Fire: Looft Works Fast, Bypasses Chemicals
Looft lights charcoal, without lighter fluid or even a gas or match flame, within 30-60 seconds. Instant grillmaster status: unlocked.
Now, we know you’re already a master so you’re not out there using lighter fluid to grill free-range, grass-fed steaks. But Looftlighter eliminates the need for any lighter fluid that may or may not be lingering around your house. In fact, it doesn’t emit any CO2 and it mitigates waste from plastic lighters and matches. That makes it good for the planet, which improves the life of any animal or plant you love to put on the grill.
Final Notes; Purchasing
As griller-in-chief, you’re always looking to improve your skill. Looftlighter helps you get the light right every time, with no chemicals or waste. If its size or function sparks a little anxiety from your traditional side, we get it. But so does Looft — in a touch of grillmaster empathy, it builds a bottle opener into the charcoal lighter’s handle.
The Looftlighter costs $100 MSRP, which means it pays for itself after about 25 (single-use plastic) bottles of lighter fluid. Also, look out for Looftlighter X, a battery-powered variant for use in the great outdoors. It’s available now for pre-order at $300 MSRP.
