    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.

    Easy to operate; good results; gas available from most supermarkets and places where they sell cigarettes. If you buy it for crème brûlée, 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.

    Simple clean lines, stable base, push button ignition, adjustable gas flow, and an adjustable air-injection to permit adjustment from pure gas-only flame to a full-on blue-flame torch. I cannot see what else you could want (apart from a good strong pair of scissors to cut your way into the plastic packaging!)

    Looks great, but cannot try it out because I bought a GoSystem Butane Gas Cartridge ...... "Frequently Bought Together" and it's wrong!!!

    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

    Before the product review, a few bits of information that I would have found helpful. I paid £9.99 on special offer for this which I thought was a reasonable price as it was in the shops (Waitrose) at £20. You need to buy a canister of butane lighter refill as it arrives empty. This cost £1.50 from the 'behind the counter' tobacco area of my local Spar - don't make the mistake I did - ensure you buy the pressurised butane canister not the petrol lighter fluid. The yellow 'Swan' can has a load of adaptors in the lid but you didn't need them as the red nozzle fitted perfectly.

    OK, now for the review.....
    The major negative is that this blow torch has a very narrow and small flame - it's fine if you want to do very small items (such as a single creme brûlée), but I bought this to do the Tom Kerridge 8 yolk bread and butter pudding (if you haven't tried the recipe you must - it is amazing). Using this blow torch to caramelise the Demerara sugar on a pudding that feeds 8-10 people took quite a while (my old general purpose DIY blow torch used to do the job in a fraction of the time but looked a bit unsightly in the kitchen). Also, although it looks quite the part in the photo, many of the silver parts are plastic not metal, so when you inspect it more closely it seems a bit cheaper. On balance, i should have bought a £4.99 butane canister refill for my old blow torch!

    Whether or not this is suitable is determined by what you want it for, because the flame is pencil thin.

    I bought it to make Gordon Ramsay's Apple Tart Fine, the relevance being that I needed to use it to heat multiple individual desserts, each an area the size of a small side plate - i.e. much larger than a ramekin containing a crème brûlée. It was as useless as an ashtray on a motorbike - the flame was so fine that it took painfully long to caramelise each tart, by which time the area I had started on had cooled down, resulting in a barely warm tart (tarts cool quickly - a crème brûlée won't as its deepness, plus the ramekin, helps to retain the heat). I would estimate that a standard DIY blowtorch throws out heat at a rate of between ten and twenty times greater.

    Fortunately I hadn't deleted the TV programme so I looked at it and GR used a standard DIY blowtorch. So I went to B&Q & bought one. What a difference!

    If you need to brown a small area with pencil-thin accuracy, then this is your man. Otherwise buy a standard DIY blow-torch.

    Personally I have doubts as to whether this chef's blowtorch would even be suitable for a crème brûlée for the same reason, but I leave that decision to you (I haven't used it for that so I can't comment). I suggest searching on YouTube for whatever you are making and seeing whether they used a diddy blowtorch or a full-size one.

    Incidentally, a DIY blowtorch costs roughly the same as a chef's one and has the advantage that the gas lasts far, far longer (the chef's one ran out of gas after heating approximately 3-4 apple tart fines. Pathetic.
