Road testing the Looftlighter

8th Aug 2017

'Every Wood-fired pizza oven owner' should have one of these!


Road Tested by Ross Yarranton – RRP less than AU$40.00


 and 'ALIGHT!'

Well what a remarkable Machine!  Was a bit apprehensive, being a Gas and Charcoal man, but this lighter is really something else! I started with a little kindle in the fire box of my Fornetto Wood Fired Oven and then added some Jarrah, I pointed the Looftlighter and touched the kindle for about 30 – 45 seconds and then pulled it away about 4 inches or so, as you can see by the picture ‘all hell broke loose’ and within about 60 seconds all was alight and firing, really beats the Blowtorch! I stayed with it for another couple of minutes as it sends a fair amount of wind into the flame but hey this has got to be the easiest lighter on the market, what more can I say but Richard (the inventor) has a great product, go out and buy one now. Bunning’s is their Aussie Distributor and they very kindly gave us one to try.

Our flame rating is 9 out of 10

Well done, such an innovative product. For more information go to

Patio Heaters - repair

I gather from my sources that there is a shortage of some patio heaters? Some can be repaired, some cant depending on the model.
