Fire Up! Charcoal Starter Wand
We didn’t start the fire…but you can.
You know the grill routine: Dump in charcoal. Pour in your lighter fluid. Toss in a match and shield your eyes. Okay, now scratch steps 2 and 3, because lighter fluid is pretty dangerous and super toxic. Opt instead for the Fire Up! Charcoal Lighter, a plug-in fire-lighting wand that uses two simple switches to take your charcoal from cold to smoldering in minutes. The heat setting ignites, while the blow setting distributes the flames. And don’t be shy: The stainless steel end of the lighter is high heat resistant, so you can bury it into the coals.
