Perfect for lighting & extinguishing your binchotan easily.

This tool enables you to easily and effectively light and save you binchotan in the very same pot.  Once you have finished using your binchotan in your grill simply place the base onto the bottom and clip it in insert your burning binchotan inside and seal the lid again.   Lighting your binchotan outside and then transferring to your grill is recommended.  Allow for the binchotan to be fully heated then place into your grill.  Do not overfill the starter pot. 

The binchotan will take around 10 minutes before it is fully glowing so be patient. Once fully lit transfer your binchotan charcoal to your grill and wait for a minimum of 5-10 minutes for the binchotan to fully build the heat and insulate your grill.  If using a bigger grill place additional binchotan on top of the already lit charcoal and wait for it to be fully lit before you start grilling.

Once you have extinguished your binchotan and it has fully cooled down, place the cool binchotan pieces back into your original binchotan box for future uses.
