Looking for a way to light your charcoal grill in a safe, environmentally friendly way in virtually any weather condition, all year long? Forget lighter fluid, propane torches or dangerous chimney starters. Check out the Looftlighter, which was designed and originally marketed in Scandinavia for lighting grills in extremely low temperatures and damp environments. The Looftlighter is able to ignite even the densest, dampest hardwood charcoal using superheated 1,250-degree air in only a few minutes.
