CLOSED Zippo Patriotic Candle Lighter Review and Giveaway! Ends 6/10

Zippo was founded in Bradford, Pennsylvania in 1932 when George G. Blaisdell decided to create a lighter that would look good and be easy to use. Blaisdell obtained the rights for an Austrian windproof lighter with a removable top, and re-designed it to his own requirements. He made the case rectangular and attached the lid to the bottom with a welded hinge, and surrounded the wick with a windhood. Fascinated by another recent invention, the zipper, Blaisdell called his new lighter "Zippo", backed it with a Lifetime Guarantee, and the rest is history.


           Ive known the Zippo name almost my whole life because of there awesome collectible lighters (yes i used to collect them) Anyways I'm sure when you think of Zippo you think of there classic flip top lighters with awesome designs.. well they have so much more that I have recently become aware of.  Like these stylish candle lighters that come in 7 different designs.


I received the patriotic candle lighter to review that is perfect for the upcoming holidays like Memorial day and the 4th of July, I loved how it comes in a neat little box almost like a purse and it was pre-filled i didn't have to fill it before trying it out. It did take me a minute to figure out the child safety lock you have to push the button first then flip the switch to light it. I'm glad it took me a while to figure out because my children are smart and if it was easy for me then it would be easy for them. I keep it put up high anyways but its still nice to know they wont be able to light it. Another of my favorite features is the flame dial so you can adjust the size flame you need for what your using it for.  I cant wait to use it to light the grill tomorrow it will be so much easier than matches that always blow out before it lights. There are so many different things you can use it for.


 Zippo has been so awesome to offer one lucky reader to win a Patriotic themed Zippo candle lighter
