Frank Bryce using a match from a box of Blishen's Safety Matches to light his stove.

A match is a combustible tool used by Muggles for lighting a fire in controlled circumstances.

First year Transfiguration students are tasked with turning matches into needles, which Hermione Granger succeeded in.[1]

In 1994 Frank Bryce used safety matches to light his stove.[2] A bit later that year, Arthur Weasley and a number of other wizards attending the 422nd Quidditch World Cup attempted to use matches to light campfires, as magic was technically not permitted in the muggle-campsite that was being used. Arthur tried and failed at this several times before Hermione Granger showed him how to use the matches properly.[3] In 1997 Bathilda Bagshot, actually Nagini in disguise, used a match to light her stove, but as she could not do it, due to her actually being a snake (which have no hands), Harry Potter had to help her.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 the matches are cut out. Instead Bathilda uses her wand to light the stove but it did not work for her, as she was a snake and could not use a wand.
