Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I always have to get lighter fluid whenever we want to grill out because we always lose ours and I never know where it went. I love this brand so I love to try and get this lighter fluid when I’m able to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I think he’s in Kingsford I guess all my life because my parents used it as well. Not much to say about lighter fluid, but it works great better than the cheap ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fires right up! Best fluid out there. Easy to light and stay lit. They did a better job with the smell too. It’s not as strong as in prior years overall a great lighter fluid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta have it I've purchased this product a lot over the years. If you love to grill out like my family does then you know you gotta have this product. Especially if your grilling with a charcoal grill. You pour the lighter fluid over your charcoal and then light it. It really helps the charcoal to burn better. Wait til your charcoal burns down before laying your food on your grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charcoal lighter Love this stuff! Sometimes lighting charcoal can be a pain and won't light. But this lighter fluid helps get it starting when they won't activate themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! Works great for firestarting. The lid sometimes leaks a little bit and gets on your hands when you open and close it, but for those that are hopeless at lighting fires like me, this is great

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kingsford Charcoal Lighter Fluid Works Grilling with a non propane grill can be stressful. You can’t just turn on the gas and press a button. Instead weather is a factor, along with making sure the charcoal you bought lights properly. Even cooking is imperative. That’s why I’m glad to drop $3 or so, for Kingsford Fluid. It works well, and brings the blood pressure down substantially. A bit of this on the coals, and a match will have your temperatures soaring . Whether cooking steaks or chicken, I prefer the taste of charcoal over a gas grill always. Just a few well aimed drops of this, will absolutely get the show going. Then you can focus on the best part of grilling. Eating! That’s my main priority, and you can get this fast burning fluid just about anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lighter fluid You can’t have a good barbecue without the fluid to help get that fire burning. This stuff is great for grills or even to jump start a fire pit. We use this for our barbecues and always have a bottle handy for those cooler nights when we want to sit by the fire pit. It’s squeeze bottle helps the liquid from getting all over the place. It’s definitely a must have for all barbecue seasons.
