From the Manufacturer
The Bernzomatic TS8000BT High Intensity Torch Head is the hottest buring torch in the Bernzomatic line. The Instant On/Off trigger ignition provides easier lighting and increased fuel savings.

The TS8000 is pressure regulated to burn in any direction with consistant performance. The torch is made with a cast aluminum body for added durability.

Pros: Incredibly hot flame for searing food
Multi fuel compatible
Cons: None yet
But, I didn't research before I ordered it. At Home Depot it's $51 and includes a tank of MAPP - a much better deal. Now I need to find out if its worth it to ship it back and buy locally.
This is a cool gadget. Just screw it onto the gas cylinder, squeeze the trigger and "Whoosh", quite a flame. I may use this to start fires in my fireplace as well, or to light charcoal, or to look for excuses to play. Much more fun being a retired grown up!
I initially thought that this torch was overkill, and unnecessarily expensive, for "just a torch." But it was what Searzall recommended for their Torch Attachment, so I bought it. Now, I'm glad I did.
My first searing torch was a cheap, $15 model that I bought at Wallymart. It's fine for a torch, but not for searing. When I pointed the head in a downward position to sear my chicken, it burped and coughed and the flame went out.
The TS8000 torch is a much more capable torch with a flame that does NOT go out when you point the flame in a downward direction.
Also, I have come to learn, with a good bit of research, that searing meats requires a REALLY hot source of heat applied to the surface of the meat for a short period of time ... so the extra capability of this torch IS what is needed, in conjunction with the Searzall Torch Attachment, to sear meats.
I use this with a Searzall Searzall Blowtorch Attachment attachment I got from kickstarter, but that is now availble on Amazon.
What I like:
- this is the recommended model for the Searzall. More powerful than the lower Bernzomatic torches I had before.
- one hand turn on (squeeze the trigger and the torch is on)
- flame settings are independent from the on/off feature. So you get the flame you want time after time without having to adjust a knob.
- there's a button to depress to keep it on. Very convenient when searing food, and avoid any finger fatigue.
- seems safe-enough: even in "stay on" mode, squeeze the trigger again and that deactivate the feature. So a quick squeeze and it's off.
- I expect this to last a very long time.
What I do not like:
- it's quite expensive :-)
While it's good with meats, I found that the Searzall + this torch gives an incredible control for finishing the creme brulee. You can melt sugar to perfection with this, and get toe the caramelized level you want without burning. i.e. at a low flame setting, this works great. This is not just for "full blast" mode.
