The award winning Grenadier Firelighter is guaranteed to light all solid fuels including wood, coal and smokeless fuel - and can take as little as a couple of minutes to do it. The secret is in it's powerful, concentrated heat. You just position the Grenadier and switch on. A built-in fan effectively directs the heat so that the fuel quickly reaches burning point. Once it's alight you switch off the heat and just let the fan blow away until the fire is really well away, just like bellows.
As a safety precaution the heating element on the Grenadier can only be switched on by a special removable safety key. The sturdy yet lightweight Grenadier has a wide and rigid stand for stability and is easily adjustable to the correct height and angle for your fire.
A major advantage when lighting barbecues is that the Grenadier produces clean heat without any odour, unlike liquid or chemical lighters, no chemical flavour is transferred to the food and the barbecue is ready to cook much quicker.
When gardening, the Grenadier eliminates the trouble associated with lighting your garden incinerator, simply load up the refuse and switch on the Grenadier - no smoke in your eyes or chasing paper around the lawn, and it's amazing how much more you can burn!
Grenadier Firelighters Limited strongly recommend that the Grenadier is always attended during use.
The Grenadier ignites fuel by means of hot air, the temperature of which has been raised by passing over a heated element. The temperature attained by the air is sufficiently high to ignite all domestic fuels. Ignition of fuel is not immediate and will vary from some two minutes for coal to about 10 minutes for hard coke. It is difficult to give ignition times for different fuels as these depend upon many factors including of course, the dampness of the fuel. After you have been using the Grenadier for a while you will discover a way of using it best suited to your application.
It must be appreciated that extremely high temperatures, quite possibly in the region of 1500°C can be achieved in the immediate vicinity of the nozzle when the fuel has ignited, and to ensure a reasonable nozzle life it is important that the nozzle be withdrawn from the fuel as soon as possible.
Please note:- During use the tube and nozzle of the Grenadier will discolour, this is quite normal.
