    Looft Lighter Fire Starter

    I did a video on the Looft Lighter in case anyone is interested in this fire starting gadget. It blows hot air at 1200 F and it can light charcoal within 60 seconds. It's not necessarily a must have gadget but it worked well in my test.

    After I found out about the Looft Lighter, I immediately went to Harbor Freight and bought this:

    Amazing deals on this 1500 Watt Dual Temp Heat Gun (700°/1000°) at Harbor Freight. Quality tools & low prices.

    It's an off-label use so so if you do happen to find yourself using it for something other than that in the instruction manual, please be careful. I would say that it works about as well as the Looft in lighting speed, based on your video. You don't have to hold down the button.

    I would be interested in a head to head comparison and value comparison as a follow up if that's something your interested in tackling.

    Very enjoyable video, thank you for sharing. Cheers!

      That's an interesting & less costly alternative. I figure that there are a ton of gadgets out there that can generate extremely hot air. Thanks for sharing!

    No need, I got a pellet Grill, a Traeger.


      Thanks for the info and the video.
      Don't forget, HF also sells butter knives.
