Pull Back A Bit — Once ignited, move it back a bit, press the boost button and keep aiming at the same spot until you have a good fire going.
WHERE TO USE YOUR LOOFT LIGHTER
Kamado – These two were a hook up waiting to happen. As you can’t use lighter fluid in a Kamado, the Looft Lighter is its obvious match.
Kettle – Too much flame or food tasting of lighter fluid? Skip the chemicals and get a steady smoulder with the Looft Lighter.
Fireplace – Avoid the coughing fits at home by creating a draft faster. Looft Lighter gets your fireplace toasty and smoke-free in no time.
Smoker – It will fire up your smoker, whatever fuel you load up, be it charcoal or wood. And the Looft Lighter’s airflow means you can easily adjust the heat during cooking.
Pizza oven – If there is one thing better than pizza, it’s a quick pizza. Fire up your pizza oven in 60 seconds and be the most popular person at the party.
Firepit – Make fire the good ole’ fashioned way. Nah, just kiddin’ – Use the Looft Lighter and skip straight to the good stuff, like toasting marshmallows
My Looftlighter won’t start what do I do?
If your lighter won’t start we have a 2-year warranty covering manufacturing defects. Due to our safety standards, we only replace not repair our products. If your lighter is broken, please refer to our warranty claim procedures.
Should I use lighter fluid along with the Looftlighter?
NO, you do not need and should never use lighter fluid, lighter cubes, pre-drenched charcoal or any other chemicals to light a barbecue or hearth fire. The chemicals contribute to CO2 emissions, they are dangerous and could add a bad taste to the food. The Looftlighter is a green and eco-friendly product!
How long does it take to start charcoal with the Looftlighter?
With the Looftlighter, you light a fire in 60 seconds. You can then leave the charcoal to get ready on its own (takes approximately 20 minutes) or you can continue using the lighter and fast-forward the process, which makes the fire ready in 4-5 minutes depending on the quality of the charcoal.
My Looftlighter has melted in the front, what do I do?
If the aluminium heat shield has melted, you have kept the lighter too close to the fire. Looft Industries provides a 2-year warranty from the date of purchase and only comprises manufacturing defects. The warranty does not cover self-caused issues like melting the front of the Looftlighter. This problem does seldom affect the functionality of the lighter, mere the looks of it.
How much electricity does my Looftlighter consume?
The Looftlighter consumes 1800 W (EU) and 1500 W (U.S) per hour. But since the lighter isn’t used more than a few minutes each time the cost is low. Approximately 0,003€/minute ($0,004/minute).
Which charcoal should I use?
We highly recommended using high-quality charcoal. This will result in faster lighting, fewer sparks and a more steady cooking temperature. If you use briquettes the lighting time will be a bit longer. Briquettes are made from charcoal powder compressed with corn starch which will also result in more smoke.
Can I use my Looftlighter indoors?
Yes, you can! The Looftlighter is designed for both outdoor and indoor use. It is optimal for lighting your fireplace, wood burner or iron stove. Tip: The Looftlighter is perfect to ”pre-heat” the chimney for say 30 seconds before lighting the wood.
My Looftlighter is broken, can you repair it?
No. It is not allowed to open up the lighter for repair or modification due to our safety standards. If your lighter is broken, please refer to our warranty claim procedures.
Will Looftlighter work with any kind of grill or barbecue?
The Looftlighter works perfectly with any kind of grill or barbecue. Whether you decide to use your weber kettle, barrel smoker or kamado-style barbecue, the lighter will perform equally well.
