Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I have the Costco value 5 pack and only 1/5 works. The other 4 won’t even spark

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy We have four of the Wind resistant lighters and they are full of fluid but don't light. Kingsford replaced these for us a year ago but now we have cold weather and need to use our wood burning stove and they don't work. I don't know how to get a hold of customer service again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a very good product Bought a five-pack from Costco. The two flexible lighters do not work at all. They have plenty of liquid. The three "straight" lighters worked fine. I expect better than a 60% success rate when I buy a product. Avoid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford Grill Lighters are the best! I bought a 2 pack of Kingsford Lighters and these work great! I have one for home and another for our cabin. Great for lighting charcoal and our fires!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only 1 worked out of my multipack I bought a whole pack of these lighters and initially they worked, but after several months they stopped working. They all show that they have a lighter fluid but they will not light.
