The torch is very well constructed and works flawlessly. the flame control is a great feature missing from most other self-igniting torches,but one thing bugs the heck out of me. If you damage the tip, have solder drip into it or remove it and lose it, you have to replace the whole torch. I called Bernzomatic customer support and was told that they do not sell only the tips. I then asked why they make the tip removable and was told that is to enable the self-igniter to be serviced. If a part is removable to facilitate service, doesn't it follow that the part could be purchased? Seems a bit greedy to me.

Recently took on a diy project involving 1" copper so it was time to retire my 40 year old well used Bernzomatic propane torch (until I needed it to fix my new one, see below) and upgrade to the higher heat MAPP gas. Bottom line this is a first class torch and well worth the money given the features and quality. No more scratching a separate flint tool to light and the trigger on and off is much easier than turning a valve (which you can still do with this but no need). I was a little leary of my skills to handle the higher heat without burning up valve seats or copper pipe but no problem as this targeted flame allows for precise aiming and sweats the joints in half the time of propane. Remember this shorter window if you are just converting from propane. The project went very quickly with perfect joints so I am a MAPP believer. Also with this model's aluminum torch tip it is almost impossible to burn yourself if you accidentally touch it when first turned off as it incredibly cools instantly after shutdown. I had one problem caused by my inattention that was resolved very fast by the good folks at Bernzomatic/Worthington. I had the torch aiming upwards under a joint and accidentally allowed a drop of molten solder to fall into the tip. I tried to purchase a new screw on tip but they are not sold separately (thanks to our plaintiff's bar). The tip would not work properly with the solder in there as the aluminum tip does not get hot enough to melt it out during use. I called the company in Ohio and they shipped me a new tip at no charge and it arrived the next day! Also I was given an unofficial hint that allowed me to easily fix the damaged tip to new condtion. Here it is... unscrew the solder damaged tip and hold it in a pair of long handled channel locks so you don't burn yourself.Read more ›

I thought everything was cheaper on Amazon, I almost ordered this but decided to check Home Depo and Lowes first. Glad I did I went to Lowes and bought the same Bernzomatic TS8000 with a Mapp gas bottle included for under $50

I ordered this torch specifically for searing meat for sous-vide cooking but have ended up using it for everything. It’s great for any cooking applications, starting campfires and wood stoves, soldering piping, and lighting fireworks. It starts on the first trigger pull every time and the flame adjustment is precise. It also works with multiple fuels. It can burn much hotter than any other cooking or blowtorch I’ve ever used. I’ve very happy with it.
Pros: Incredibly hot flame for searing food
Multi fuel compatible
Cons: None yet

Easy to use, well made and very sturdy. I use this to torch my food when cooking. This is also one of the torches recommended for the Searzall project on kickstarter. It's a very well made torch that cools down pretty fast after using it. It has a safety switch to prevent accidentally igniting the gas. This is on the trigger itself. Just twist it and it is swtiched off. The Bernzomatic TS8000 is turn on by pressing the yellow button you see in the picture. It ignites the gas at the same time when you press it. The small silver knob that you see in the picture that is the above the brand name on the device is a button that allows you to lock the device so that you do not need to always hold on to the red button when using it. With the TS8000, there is an additional gas regulator knob that allows you to control the strength of the flame that is not present on the TS4000. The flame is also stronger with the TS8000 torch.

On the fuel I use with this:
I have been using the Coleman Propane Fuel 16.4oz/465g with this. The Coleman Propane Fuel is selling for $3 at the local winco grocery shop in USA. It is also available at all Walmarts and Targets for under $4 if you are in USA. It fits both the Bernzomatic TS4000 as well as the TS8000 model.

The Coleman Propane Fuel I use with this torch is the same green one that you see in the Searzall video here:

I bought mine as a kit including a bottle of MAPP from a local builder's supply here. But I thought I would comment. First the TS8000 is certainly high intensity! As others have posted one of the quarks of this thing are it's touchy flame control and lack of a true low mode. I was sweating 1/2" copper pipe and found that in the middle zone it was heating the pipe and flux so quickly (under 2 seconds!) that I was burning it off and leaving these very pretty scorch marks on my pipes. However after a little trial and error I discovered that you could back the flame off to just before it would blow out and be more of a "normal torch". At that lowest setting (assuming I didn't bump the knob with the back of my hand) it heated the fittings very evenly and slow enough to where I could sweat them and wipe them clean for a reasonable looking finish. I gave it four starts since it is a handheld blast furnace, but for larger pipes (most likely it's intended use) I assume it would work do beautifully for you! I love the one handed lighting and operation. Much safer than the old igniter torches I've used in the past. I can't comment on gas consumption yet, but when I run out I'll update and tell you how many fittings I got out of the bottle.
