This lighter works really well. Our gas hobs piezo failed earlier in the year, and after a while fiddling with it, gave up, and bought one of these lighters. It looks cool, and is easy to use, and with the long neck, it's easy to get into light the hobs, even with saucepans on top. Trigger is a little bit stiff for the first few attempts, but soon eases off, and gives a nice positive click when it lights. Great product.
