Zippo Candle Lighter Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
We don't have a fireplace (and even if we did, we'd probably never use it), but we do light candles for the Sabbath every week. When the Sabbath is over, we also light a Havdalah candle to make a separation between the Sabbath and the regular week. We also light candles for Jewish holidays (like Passover and Chanukkah) and on the anniversary of someone's death, but we've always used regular matches. The problem with this is mainly that sometimes you need to use more than one match if you're lighting several candles (or risk burning your fingers). I've always wanted to get a lighter, but I have a lot of trouble actually getting regular lighters to light. Coordinating my thumb on those silly starters just doesn't happen, so I was anxious to try out Zippo's Candle Lighter and see if this was something I could use instead of matches.
My Take
There are several things I absolutely love about the Zippo Candle Lighter. First of all, it's refillable, so I can use it over and over again. And with Zippo's lifetime guarantee, I can actually use it forever. Secondly, it comes in eight different colors/styles, so I was able to choose a design that was perfect just for me. Also, and most importantly, it's super easy to use while still being child-proof. There's a special button on the back that needs to be pressed while using the ignition switch. For an adult, this is no problem, but a child would have a very difficult time trying to use both buttons at once. Also, the ignition switch has some resistance to it, which makes it even safer. The best part is, there's no "trick" to lighting it (the way there is with regular lighters). Just press the safety button, slide the ignition switch forward, and the flame ignites. When you're done, release the ignition switch. You can also adjust the flame using a regulator switch on the bottom of the lighter. This way you can have a larger flame if you need it to start a fireplace fire and a smaller one if you just need to light a candle. When you need to refill the lighter, there's an indicator at the bottom so you can see exactly how much fuel you have left. This way you don't risk overfilling the lighter.

Cost: You can buy a "classic" colored lighter for $14.95 + shipping or a special design lighter for $19.95 + shipping. ($$$$)

Overall: We give the Zippo Candle Lighter a 10/10!
