Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Go To Lighter Fluid This lighter fluid works great when lighting up our barbecue grill, and is very flammable! We've used this for many years now and will continue to purchase when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childproof cap makes it a tremendous bonus for us moms with kiddos who like to prowl in cabinets The safety is a huge huge plus for me because I have children, so the fact that it’s hard for me to even open the lid is a tremendous bonus. It doesn’t have a strong odor and your food doesn’t taste like it. Like other brands I’ve tried they’re very strong smelling however this brands odor is subtle. It works wonderful I mean a little goes along way. You really do get your monies worth

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighter fluid Kingsford charcoal lighter fluid is the best for lighting up my charcoal. Give a little squirt out of the packaging all over your charcoal then wait a few for it to soak in and light it up. This brand works good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable and Odorless. We use Kingsford Charcoal Lighter Fluid to light our charcoal when we go to the lake or for our family get together's. It only takes a little of this to get the fire going. It's odorless and portable. The nozzle closes tightly so you don't have to worry about leeks. It makes lighting charcoal very easy.
