NEWS – It’s not really a flame thrower, but you won’t need charcoal starter fluid for your grill or those little paraffin-soaked starter bundles for your fireplace anymore. The Bison Airlighter is made of plastic and stainless steel. It is CPSC compliant, and it has a child safety lock to prevent accidental ignition. The lighter uses butane fuel, and it needs batteries to power an air blower. A typical charcoal barbecue requires about 1 minute of fan time to be fully lighted or about 5 minutes before you are ready to cook.
There are two models available:
- The Airlighter 420 has a built-in bottle opener and a storage hook. It requires 3AA batteries. It measures 16” x 2.2” x 3″ and weighs 1.3 pounds. It’s $49.95.
- The Airlighter 520 has in integrated flashlight and bottle opener. It has USB-rechargeable batteries, and an adjustable folding handle with 3 different positions. It measures 21″ x 3.5″ x 3″ and weighs 3 pounds. It’s $79.95.
Both of these Bison Airlighters are available now at The Grommet.
