Looftlighter is a curling iron lookalike that ignites wood or charcoal in less than 60 seconds with its patented hot airstream process. It makes charcoal barbecue preparation quick, clean, safe and easy without the need for lighter fluids. It does not throw flames but instead blows a hot airstream at 1,256 degrees Fahrenheit simply plugging the Looftlighter into a wall socket and touch the nose of the lighter to your wood or coals.
