Airlighter 520 Electric Lighter

Lighting your wood-burning pizza oven doesn't need to be a struggle!  The revolutionary Bison Airlighter 520 Electric Fire Starter will have your fire blazing in no time. 

The ultimate in speed and convenience, Airlighters turn the task of lighting fires from a chore into a pleasure — from the first sparks to the final ashes.

Starting charcoal and wood fires is now as easy as using gas. The Bison Airlighters are the only fire electric lighters that combine a torch flame with an air-blower to easily ignite and then boost your fire. 


With the Bison Airlighter 520, the contamination, risk factors, and adverse health side-effects associated with lighter fuels and fuel-infused charcoal are a thing of the past.  And — maybe best of all — lighting wood for cooking has now been reduced from 20+ minutes to just 5-6!


  • Built-in rechargeable battery provides 35 minutes of blower use.  A typical fire requires 1-4 minutes
  • Refillable fuel tank provides 10-15 minutes of burn time
  • Adjustable flame control helps light fires in any conditions
  • Folding handle with 3 different positions
  • Air-cooled operation keeps the Airlighter cool to the touch - safe around children - can store immediately

Faster Fire!

Finally getting the fire started quickly in my pizza oven. In the past I struggled to get the fire started in the oven but now, it saves me so much time by using the AirLighter! Love it!

Thank you for the 5-star review Sharon! Let us know if you need any assistance in the future!

martin b.
product was good, but took them an extended period to get the product when it was back ordered an...

they were very nice folks to deal with, and the product works fine, although for $29 a torch from Home Depot does the same job...what's really nice is their fan option on the bison so that when it gets started and needs a little air/wind to crank up the flame, that fan option on the bison is very useful.

Thanks for the feedback and review Martin! Yes, the great benefit of the Bison Electric Lighter is definitely the fan feature which really gets your fire blazing quickly. :-)
