I've only been using it for a few days now, so if it falls apart in the next few months, I'll amend my review.

I primarily use this for Sous Vide cooking, which requires most meats to be seared when they are done cooking. When you are making 5-10 steaks at a time, and want to serve all of your guest at once, a reliable torch that works fast is a must.

I had been using a propane torch ($12 at Lowe's) and finally got tired of the flame-outs and uneven burn. Let me say, this torch is awesome. It puts off way more heat than the propane torch, does not flame out no matter how fast you move it or what angle you hold it at. I bought the GasOne 12-pack of butane cans (about $2 per can with shipping included), and a dinner of 5 steaks seemed to use about 10-15 percent of a fuel can.

Its very hot, and has a nice wide flame, resulting in fewer passes when torching a steak.

Pros:
-Cheap Fuel
-Steady, Hot, Wide flame
-Adjustable flame intensity
-Big. It sits well in the hand with a fuel can attached
-Trigger for lighting the flame. No lighter or sparker required
-Trigger does not control fuel flow. I thought this would be bad at first, but it would actually be a pain to have to hold the trigger down for extended use

Cons:
- It didn't come with a Ferrari.

UPDATE 7 Sep 2014 - Over three years later, this torch is still amazing.

Great torch with power. The flame is around 22 cm when full throttle. I use it for cooking: creme brulee, searing beef, charring eggplants for Middle Eastern food, grilling skin side of fish fillets for interesting Japanese touch, getting the perfect texture on salmon belly, and touching up the skin of oven-roasted chicken.

It works perfectly. Just remember to adjust the flame so it is a sharp blue. If the flame is yellow the combustion is incomplete and some of the gas particles will deposit on your food item. No matter what, there will be a slight residue taste using this torch. I think of it being part of the torched taste now. If you don't like the taste you can buy a few pieces of Japanese active charcoal (binchotan) and let the flame first touch the charcoal before it touches the food. It sounds a bit silly, but it actually removes some of the torch taste.

The torch clips on really easily on a small gas canister and off you go. The build of the item is very good. I believe it is made in Japan.

Other uses:
- Emergency gas hob. If you use bottled gas and run out, just put this burner on its side on the hub under your pot.
- Killing kitchen ants. I also have lizards in the kitchen and they eat the ants so there is no need to clean up. Just zap the ants.
- Bending plastic. I bent a plastic dish washer so that I can use it to clean my espresso machine.
- Lighting candles. If you put the torch on the lowest power you can use it to light old fashion candles.
- Lighting fires. If you have a fireplace this burner can be used to start the fire, unless you're a traditionalist.
- Torture. I have not used it yet, but if I catch an Al Queida terrorist it might come in handy.

NEW USES
- Killing small flies.

I liked it because it has a longer nozzle than other product ,an air adjusting feature and made by Iwatani whichi is a solid
company.
but its self ignition worn out upon heavy usage.
I used it for my job every day to torch roasted pork for 8 to 10 times a day about 20 total miniutes and its self
ignition somehow run out. I started to use it about 2 years ago and I'm using the 3rd one now. I probably will
continue this product until I find better torch tnan this but I say this product is not for heavy duty.

I had concerns initially as this torch burner only fits on certain butane canisters which are hard to find anywhere locally via internet search. The torch burner itself is not expensive, but the shipping and handling of the butane canisters sold online are too high to be ignored for the overall cost. Luckily, I found out that Costco business centers carry them ($4.99 for 4 cans) as lots of restaurants are using the butane burners which use the same type of canisters. So, without a second thought, I placed the order immediately.

This is my very first torch burner, but I was too eager to try it before I read the instruction (printed on the back pages of the folded cardboard). And it just works perfectly. That tells how intuitive and easy to use it. I have been using it to sear meat prepared via Sous Vide and heat brown sugars on the custard of Creme Brulee. I am very happy with its performance and would highly recommend it.

I got this torch for my encaustic (painting with pigmented beeswax) work. It seems well made and works well. I can buy butane cylinders for it at my local Ace hardware. Be aware that you must turn the gas on, then pull the trigger to use the torch. When done, you have to turn the gas off. Other than that inconvenience, it works great.
The size and light weight make this ideal in the art studio; it's bigger than the tiny torches and not bulky and heavy like the propane torch I use for plumbing repairs.
I use this more than any of my other fusing tools, which include a hot air gun, a Bernzomatic torch, and several mini irons.
