    5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Cooks! 18 Jan 2010
    Never mind using for cooking, how about model work?
    I use mine for soft soldering and bending metal wire by heating it to red heat!
    Having had one of the micro blowtorches that were a real pain to use, once I got this device it was so much easier, a really good tool to use and works very well indeed.
    I would recommend the product without reservation.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 9 Mar 2010
    Easy to operate; good results; gas available from most supermarkets and places where they sell cigarettes. If you buy it for crème brūlée, practice first on tinned rice pudding (Elizabeth David tip). Difficult to see the point of buying a more expensive model unless you want a different colour.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Bit girly. 19 Feb 2014

    Although this blowtorch works fine, it is a bit under-powered if you know what I mean. Not a very big flame.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Not essential but very useful 26 Oct 2010
    By S. Thomas #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    I have been using this blowtorch for a couple of years now and have found it very practical as well as easy to use.

    Filling with butane (not supplied with the product) is straightforward - the nozzle on the canister fits easily onto a thin tube fitted into the base of the blowtorch. I check one has been correctly inserted onto the other by moving the butane canister gently sideways; if it moves, it isn't on properly, so I have another go. You get a feel for when the blowtorch has been sufficiently filled from changes to resistance and I normally stop in time, if not, a small amount of butane spills out and you can feel the cold but it doesn't hurt and quickly evaporates off.

    The length of the flame is controlled via a dial on the top and the flame is ignited via the red button on the side.

    I was wary using it at first but gained confidence fairly quickly, helped by the fact that the black ribbed plastic ensures you keep a firm grip. It also feels reassuringly sturdy, without being too heavy. Whilst it is not really an essential piece of equipment to have in the kitchen, it makes life a bit easier and I have no regrets about buying mine, even though it does not get used every day.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 26 Jun 2013
    Verified Purchase
    We sent this back after using it three times. It leaked, it flared up in alarming ways, it wouldn't adjust. I'm amazed anyone makes such rubbish (especially involving flames and compressed gas). Sent it back, obviously.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Problem with flame? 13 Dec 2011
    By lewis
    I never review items on here, even if there great.

    I just noticed some people stating that their lighter does not produce a blow torch like flame, but rather like the flame from a lighter.

    There is a screw-able sleeve/nut on the arm of the lighter that when unscrewed covers an air hole which causes this flame.

    All the views stating it doesn't work are incorrect. All you need to do is screw it all the way back to the body of the lighter.

    SORTED!

    10/10 great blow torch

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Torch of Class 14 Mar 2007
    All too often we hear people offer unjustified, exuberant praise for their kitchen gadgets. How many times have I heard fellow cooks tell me, "I'd be literally lost without my die cast tungsten lobster cracker?" or exercising their shrimps in excitement over the latest rechargeable kiwi skinner?

    But here we have something which literally will blow you away. The perfect brulee has eluded so many of us for so long, but this little beauty will char your cap to perfection every time. You can even set it on a timer and leave the naked flame unattended, safe in the knowledge that when you return from shopping, your dessert will be crisp and nutty - as long as the kids didn't get to it first, that is!

    It's also handy for melting ice cubes. Be careful though: get too close and it'll take your face off.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Light and safe
    It's a very useful blowtorch. Quite economical,I hardly need to fill it up. It's very stable when it stands and the flame keeps burning while you do the work you need to.
