WHICH CHARCOAL TO USE

There is charcoal and there is charcoal
We recommend to use high quality lump charcoal. This is quite different from the regular charcoal you pick up in your grocery store. The chunks will be bigger, sparks less and a give a more steady cooking temperature.

Briquettes
Briquettes are made from charcoal powder compressed with corn starch making them very dense. If you use briquettes the lighting time might be a bit longer than regular charcoal. The corn starch will also emit smoke when ignited. There are different types of briquettes offering a selection of density. The harder compressed - the longer burn time.

Sustainable Charcoal
In order to lower your environmental impact and avoid supporting companies engaged in deforestation we highly recommend everyone to use high quality charcoal from sustainable sources, such as coppiced trees in managed woodland and forests.

PRO TIPS

Don't choke charcoal
Don’t put the nozzle of the Looft Lighter directly on to a big chunk of charcoal - airflow is important so try to find a spot where two pieces of charcoal meet and ignite that spot.

Start small and let it spread
Start by lighting smaller pieces, the glow will catch on quicker and spread to bigger pieces.

Use your ears
Best way to get your charcoal or logs going quickly is to continue pointing the Looft Lighter towards the same spot in your pile after ignition. Listen for the “swoosh” and you’ll know when you point the Looft Lighter in the right direction.

Boost from outside
You can easily increase the temperature in your grill or smoker by closing the lid, point the tip of the Looft Lighter to the vent hole and press the button. This will add a strong stream of air to your grill which’ll get the heat up quickly. Perfect when making pizza!

CLEAN AND CARE

Wipe off
From time to time we recommend you wipe off your Looft Lighter with a damp cloth. Do not use detergents.

Store inside
The Looft Lighter should be stored inside in a dry environment.

Pull Back a Bit
Remember to pull back the Looft Lighter from the charcoal or logs when sparks or glow appear. The heat shield is made of aluminum (to prevent severe burn damages and setting fire to nearby objects) and can melt if kept in the glow for too long. Also, if you pull away a few inches, the glow will spread even quicker.
