This turned out to be a poor product. Cheaply made, it is difficult to ignite and has a very limited capacity for butane storage, which means one is contantly refilling it. It has tiny plastic levers supposedly to prevent accidental ignition, but they just sort of flip back and forth loosely, failing to make a positive lock. This thing is junk.

At a glance this seems like a good deal, but it's all an illusion. Words cannot express how tiny the dishes are, they're only good for 3, maybe 4 small bites. Each dish would hold about 1 large egg if you cracked it and poured it into the dish. So now that the dishes are worthless, the question is, would you pay $30 for just the torch? No!!! This is a poor quality torch with lots of drawbacks. For $30 or less you can get a PROFESSIONAL torch. In short, DO NOT BUY THIS SET.

We found the photos used to display these two items were deceptive. If you expect nice fluted dishes similar to what a French restaurant uses for creme brûlée, these will disappoint you. The text does say 4 ounces upon careful reading, but the photos look like something more substantial. The torch device is lightweight, insubstantial. I am certain it would take eons to prepare topping for one dish, much less 4 or 6, but we did not bother to try it, since the one we were replacing was equally slight.
We returned these items ASAP to Amazon for refund.

The ramekins are what one might expect for Crème Brulee individual servings. The torch is lightweight and does the job but it is difficult to manage with the safety switch. I am certain there must be some safety ruling that requires it. It just is a little awkward to hold and try to use.

The torch works but it takes quite a while to caramelise the sugar on the creme brulee and since the tank is so small I run out of gas before I get to the 4th one. It's kind of annoying to have to go and refill it part way through. It works though and I have no other issues. I had trouble starting it at first but I realised I was pushing the button down too hard/fast and when I did it slowly it worked much better.

Ramekins are great, they hold 4oz which is a bit smaller than I usually get at a restaurant but perfect for me at home.
The included recipe is fantastic, I've made it twice since getting this kit 2 weeks ago, though I do suggest not beating the mixture like it says, it made it very foamy! The second time I used the lowest setting (stir) on my stand mixture and it worked a lot better, nice and smooth on top.

Once filled and lit - good flame and works well.

However, the major drawbacks are
- really shoddy ignition - spotty at best - it'll be a click, click, click experience to light
- difficult to fill - poorly sized filler orifice?
- annoying safety catch to ignite - which I "fixed" with Gorilla glue - idiotic "safety" features that disable functionality

Today I got so ticked off that I threw it away - there you go, that's my assessment.

This torch works excellent, especially for the price. I would give this torch a 5/5 considering any torch that is actually better already costs more, and for that its a perfect 5/5 for the price range. However, when spending less than twice as much more you can get a better torch with a lifetime warranty, so I put it at 4 stars. My torch stopped igniting the butane after 2-3 years of heavy daily use. It is definitely worth $30 for that life time, but rather than get another I'd prefer to pay more and have a life time warranty. This is a perfect torch for the average Creme Brulee torch user and it has my recommendation for that user. However, for the heavy daily torch user I would recommend spending more for a better torch.
