The JAJA ProStart Campfire Starter is one of the coolest camping items to come along in years. It will start your campfire in 5 minutes or less using only a standard 16oz propane cylinder. It doesn't get any faster or simpler than that. You don't need kindling or dangerous gasoline products to start your fire. No wads of crumpled smoke billowing newspapers. No lingering gas fumes. Just you and the JAJA. It evens comes with a FREE sparker to light it. On a personal note the JAJA has started many fires for me while camping or at the backyard fire pit but once at a campground it started a load of, campground supplied, soaking wet pine, much to our amazement. Without the JAJA we would have been cold and wet but the JAJA saved the day and the weekend.

  • Simple - Safe - Fast
  • Great for Camping or at the Backyard Fire Pit
  • Adjustable valve for total flame control
  • Free sparker included
  • Starts most fires in 5 minutes or less
  • Uses standard (easily available) 16oz propane cylinders
  • No lingering petroleum smell
  • Durable long lasting construction
  • Flared tip creates excellent flame coverage
  • Tank is a safe distance from the fire
  • Simplified Instructions - build a tepee of wood inside the appropriate fire ring or surface. Kindling is not necessary. Attach the propane canister to the JAJA ProStart by simply screwing it on. Light a match or strike the included sparker and open the JAJA valve. Set the JAJA in place under the wood and watch the JAJA do the rest. When the fire has started turn the valve off and remove the JAJA. Carefully place it away from the fire and away from other campers as it is very hot. In a few minutes when it is cool put it back in the box.
  • Before use please read all included instructional and safety material.
  • 30"x8"x1.5"
  • Wt. 1lb. 9oz.

Works great, but do have to let it run for a few minutes. When creating a teepee style, it mostly burned the upper parts of the logs. Just need to adjust to hit lower part of logs.

        This product was purchased for my father for Christmas. He and my mother are both retired and RV in the summer. So unfortunately the testing will have to wait till then, but it seems like it will work well. The construction is solid and it also come with a flint light similar to one you would use in weilding so i think that is a thoughtful extra. I will update later this year.

          This is the tool to have to get a fire going. Cold, windy, damp it doesn't matter. Starts the fire with the logs. Forget kindling and gradually building the fire. This starts the fire in less than 5 minutes and you start enjoying it right away.

            Comments about JAJA Camping Supplies JAJA ProStart Campfire Starter:

            Bottom line - this thing is amazing!! Everywhere we go we show it off and people want one. While others are messing around with pine cones and soggy newspaper, we have a roaring, smoke free fire in seconds with just the flick of a welders sparker (included). 30 seconds with dry wood on medium blast. A few minutes with Oregon-style soggy-wet campground wood on full blast. We attached a half empty tank to it and still haven't finished one. Just like any torch, it's gonna light better when turned way down. Whoever complained it didn't work must have cranked it up and tried to light it and it just blew itself out. A must have piece of gear, especially if you encounter wet wood a lot. Only bummer is it isn't hands free on most camp fire rings; which is probably a good thing. JUST BUY IT!!!

                One of the best products to come along in a real long time that is very useful and easy to use. I have already recomended this product to my whole family that also goes RV'ing. It will be a great gift for the whole family during Christmas for those who are hesitating about it.

                    Tank would burn for an approximately 1 hour.
