About

Beautifully sculpted of aluminum, polycarbonate, and stainless steel. The Vesta Works RocketFire™ contains the thrust to light charcoal and wood fires within just 3 minutes. No need for lighter fluids that ruin your food or waiting endlessly for the fire pit to get rolling. No matches, no kindling, no liquids. Just instant fire propelled through Vesta Works Tri-Flame Cone Tip™ in a microsecond - at the touch of a button. 

Perfectly designed for today's advanced ceramic grills. RocketFire™ is ideal for Big Green Egg®, Kamado Joe®, Primo®, and the like, as well as conventional charcoal and wood grills like Weber® and Charbroil®. And for lighting the family fire pit, it's not only fast, it's a show in itself. Push the button and you hear the roar of a rocket. It's that powerful.   

 Shipping will be billed upon fulfillment using BackerKit. We estimate that domestic shipping will cost $15 for the Torch and $45 for the Torch, Case, and Stand. International shipping will cost $45 for the Torch and $70 for the Torch, Case, and Stand.

Due to international regulation on the shipment of fuel canisters, the reward levels that include bonus fuel canisters are only available within the United States. International backers should choose from our Test Pilot or International Mission Specialist reward levels. Compatible fuel canisters can be purchased from Sievert and other manufacturers worldwide!  

 Thank you for checking out the RocketFire™ torch. If you're ready to accelerate your fire-starting to rocket speed, sign up now and become a backer!

Risks and challenges

While our team has collectively worked on 10 prior crowdfunding projects, this is our first Kickstarter as a company together. We’ll be manufacturing a patent-pending firestarter with extraordinary capabilities. We’ve already manufactured three prototypes and they’re in use at our home grills. But mass manufacturing is never without its challenges.
Some components of the RocketFire™ are being manufactured in China. Working with a Chinese manufacturer allows us to bring the product to you at a more affordable price but it puts at risk of all the usual problems with international manufacturing. However, we have carefully selected a highly-regarded manufacturer based in Shanghai to work with, and are confident they will be an excellent partner that will work with us to bring you an on-time and high-quality delivery.
Because we are creating an incendiary device that uses flammable fuel canisters, we face some unusual regulatory challenges in manufacture and shipping the fuel to our backers. We have been working with an administrative law expert to make sure we follow all the appropriate regulations and feel confident we've sorted it out, but there still might be some delays or unexpected twists ahead. In order to minimize the risk, we are selling the fuel canisters only within the United States. International backers can still purchase the torch and use compatible canisters available from other vendors.
Everyone at Vesta Works is committed to bringing you your RocketFire™ on time and at the highest quality, and we are grateful for your interest and support in the product!
