Good Torch
Been using for awhile now. Lights every time, solid, easy to refill, detachable base, great flame control, and looks good
January 16, 2012
"Does the job, does it well"
This is a solid product, producing a very consistent and hot flame. The igniter works the first time almost every time, and the flame adjustment is precise.

One possible complaint about this product could be the switches, which are somewhat loose and plasticy-feeling, but this doesn't really affect the torch's functionality

Fun kitchen tool
This torch is perfect for caramelizing sugar on creme brulee and for toasting marshmallows on s'mores pie. It has worked great for many years although I don't use it every day. I bought one for my mom for Christmas and she loves it too.

First Torch
This is the first torch I have owned -- so I cannot compare it. However, it was EXTREMELY easy to fill and use. Worked like a charm - I am very happy with my purchase

after a search for Cooking torches, I found the Sur La Table web site... I found several torches in a variety of prices and today, the Messermeister Chef's Torch was on sale.. so I decided to stop thinking about one and went ahead and placed the order after I did some additional research on the torch brand and on Sur La Table.. Possitive input was rec'd on both !!

WHERE DO I BUY BUTANE TORCH?
A shopper on Jan 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can get the butane any number of places (Amazon carries it). We just don't carry it because our warehouse isn't the proper environment for hazmat items like butane.
how do I open this product up to put in the butane bottle

i purchased the messermeister chef's torch sometime ago and just decided to use it.
A shopper on May 18, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Trigger-start aluminum torch for perfect crème brûlée. Up to 2700°F. 200 minutes use per 9-oz. butane canister (not included). You do not need to open any part of this product in order to fill the butane. There should be a small nozzle on the top of the butane bottle and point of entrance for that nozzle on the bottom of your chef's torch. Instert that nozzle into the bottom of the torch and push. This will release the butane from its canister and load it into your chefs torch.
Is this strong enough to sear meats that have been cooked in a sous vide? Does it cause as much smoke as using a fry pan?
barbara o on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this torch can be used for browning meats. It would cause less smoke than searing in a skillet.
Can you use an 8 oz butane canister?
Jane S on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased (in store at Sur La Table) a 6oz "Max Burton premium butane fuel for refilling small butane devices". Haven't tried any others.
