Grenadier Firelighter put to the test
Don’t just take our word for it. UK celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver recommends the Grenadier Firelighter in his best-selling book, “Jamie Oliver at Home”. He says: “The easiest way to light a barbecue is to use a Grenadier Electric Firelighter. I have one of these for lighting barbecues, or for getting a nice fire going at home in the winter. These bits of kit are great because you don’t have to find dry wood or kindling or scrunch up bits of paper to get the fire started. But most important of all, there is absolutely no need to use any chemical firelighters or liquid fuels. It will even light wet wood and coals in just a few minutes! Please don’t use those little firelighter blocks you can buy in bags – they give off really dreadful fumes that will end up flavouring your food. Horrible.”

Its secret lies in the powerful, concentrated heat which is directed onto the fuel by the built-in fan. The fuel reaches burning point within minutes, getting BBQs going quickly, efficiently and easily.

No chemical taste on the food
As Jamie Oliver points out, firelighter blocks can give off horrible fumes that can be transferred to the food giving it an adverse taste. Lighting your BBQ with the Grenadier Firelighter ensures that you and your guests get as much natural flavours out of the food as possible.

There is so much more to creating the perfect barbecue than just buying a grill and getting some meat. The sheer simplicity of lighting a BBQ using the Grenadier Firelighter is a game changer.
