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.
-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
- It didn't come with a Ferrari.
UPDATE 7 Sep 2014 - Over three years later, this torch is still amazing.
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.
- 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.
- Killing small flies.Read more ›
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.
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.
Highly recommended and the price on Amazon is great.
This is my third blow torch, and thankfully, it's also the end of my search. I've had it for 3 years now and it still works great.
I first tried one of those torches that come with creme brulee kits. Those suck. They have weak flames, meaning it takes so long to get the job done that you'd better have 2nd dinner planned because your guests will be hungry again by the time you finish with your first pot of creme. They are also a pain because you need to buy specialized canisters to refill the torch.
I then went to the hardware store and got a soldering torch. It was definitely far more powerful, but 1) I thought I was going to torch the whole kitchen, the flame was so large, and 2) the model I got didn't seem to handle being tipped very well and would go out. The canisters were also way big and heavy. I felt like I was holding a mini fire extinguisher, which knowing me I probably *should* have had on hand.
Then, I found this torch.
And I tell you, I'm in torching bliss.
I love that it's powerful enough to brulee things quickly and evenly. The flame is adjustable so you can have a wide, even flame or a tight targeted one. Most of the time I just leave mine on a wide flame, which works best for creme brulee to have that even finish. It also seared my prime rib roast nicely (I cooked my roast low and slow and wanted to finish the roast with an even crust.) The browning of the gristle smelled so good I'm getting hungry thinking about that roast and I'm writing this review in the AM. I've used it to finish a lot of my sous vide dishes and it's consistently worked great.Read more ›

This torch works well and does what it is supposed to - that is finish off Sous Vide steaks. The tip gets very hot and can leave a nasty burn as I found out. Read morePublished 12 days ago by TomG

It does what its supposed to. Self ignition broke after 2 months of use.
I'm a bit disappointed as I expected better quality from Iwatani.
Same model my Sushi guy uses. Clicks on instantly, easy to adjust. Great to impress friends when I pull the roast out of the sous vide and brown it before serving. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John Lacy
