How do I use an electric starter?

Electric Charcoal Starter

An electric charcoal starter is a heating element attached to a handle with a cord that plugs into an electrical outlet. The element is placed with the coals and when it's plugged in, it gets hot enough to ignite the coals touching the element. It takes about 8-10 minutes for all of the coals to become hot.
