These specially-designed Kingsford® lighters feature a long reach nozzle and adjustable flame to safely ignite hard-to-reach places on the grill. They’re great for firing up briquets, and the wind resistant flame and jumbo fuel cell can keep you grilling all year round. These lighters meet all of the stringent safety, child resistant and performance requirements set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Standards Organization (ISO).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5 pack last 3 do not work Bought a 5 pack. The first 2 worked great. The 3rd was working and now stopped. The last two have adjustable ends. The last 3 have fluid you can see in the window. They will work if I put a flame in front of the. But you push the two buttons in order, have it set it from low to high. The spark happens but no flame. When we put in front of an open flame. It will light but barely. Very disappointed in the product. Not to your usual standards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lighter Failure This lighter is poorly designed. It’s safe because it doesn’t work. I’ve used your briquettes for years and consider them the gold standard, but the lighter needs a redesign.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought it was a good design Purchased yesterday. Absolutely did not work. I tried to email this but every time I completed the info it disappeared! Apparently my experience is not wanted

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kingsford jumbo fuel cell flexible. Paid $3.99 for something that doesn’t even work. Purchased at Market Basket. Do not buy. Piece of junk

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flexible lighters don't work I bought the value pack from Costco. The standard lighters work well, but the flexible "wind resistant" lighters do not light directly from the package. The fuel is full but no flame. The value pack is not a value if you have to throw two lighters away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Disposable Lighters Don’t Work I bought a pack of disposable lights from Costco and the lighters don’t work once the fluid is even slightly gone. We have lots of fluid left on the lighters but they don’t ignite.
