Why use the Looftlighter?

The Looftlighter is the fastest lighter in the world. There’s no flame and no gas, just super heated air that both ignites your charcoal and also cuts the time it takes until you can start cooking! And if this isn’t enough, it also lights wood, so you can use it outdoors for you grill, and indoors for your fire place. And yes, it has an integrated bottle opener.
