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

That is how long it will take you to use this fabulous appliance. I purchased a previous one from Sur LaTable and could not get filled and of course could not use it at all.

This torch is super easy to fill. Just follow the directions and you got a flame baby!

This has become my new favorite toy. Now I can't help myself now looking for all kinds of desserts that require a toasted meringue or lots of creme brules. To my family and friends...sorry not sorry for the amount of desserts that are coming your way!

To carmelize sugar on creme brûlée
Vickie C on May 11, 2017
This was the less expensive option for a butane-fueled, handheld blow torch. With shipping, it still costs less than the alternative costs without shipping charges. Plenty of good reviews, my use will be similar to other positive reviewers.

Lynn Z on Sep 30, 2018
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.
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.
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.
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.
How do I refill the butane?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is a refill hole in the bottom and you buy a can of butane
What else can this be used for besides making brûlée?
Viki Z on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Anything you wish to brown quickly.
I keep seeing your companies response to purchase 9 oz butane on Amazon, however I am not finding 9 oz butane on Amazon, or any other site for that matter, mostly 8 oz. so please either provide a link to this 9oz butane or when my torch arrives I’m returning it. I’m already irritated & it’s not even here yet!?
Lori J on Sep 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I ordered this, and it works great! Zippo Butane Fuel 5.82 oz by Zippo
Having trouble with mine. Worked the first time. Tried it again and wouldn’t work. I have tried filling it 5 times. I thought that it was filled. The safety switch keeps clicking up, when I press the black ignition button, even though it is pressed way in. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help?
Sandra E on Aug 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I love my torch . On occasion the switch will do what you described.
If it happens every time I would get it replaced .
