Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy... My mom ordered this gadget out of her love for creme brûlée. I decided to make it for her and I was initially a little intimidated by using a "torch" in the kitchen. It was actually super easy (and FUN!!!) and it added the perfect caramelized crust....just like a fancy restaurant. I loved hers so much that one is now on my wish list, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nicely sized torch Beware! This does not come filled with butane, you must purchase seperately. Otherwise, nice torch, easy to use and nice size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed— not nearly powerful enough This torch puts out an extremely small and feeble flame, even at its maximum setting. We bought this solely to make creme brûlée, and the first time we used it, it took FOREVER to get anything to caramelize, and even then it left patches of raw sugar totally untouched. We will need to replace it before we try to make creme brûlée again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Shopped Everywhere I have read just about every review of every type of culinary torch out there. None are perfect - almost all of them leak. However, this torch gets the best rating. I bought it as a gift. It has not been returned. It's easy to use. The gauge works well. Once you get the hang of it, and stop looking for a torch that's absolutely perfect, you'll be as happy with this one as you would be with one that $100. You get more than you pay for with this torch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine for me! Bought this about a month ago and finally used it yesterday. Works perfectly fine in browning my sugar on my Creme brûlée. Have not had any problems yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Service/bad product I bought this torch last December for holiday baking and used it once fairly successfully. My friend was working with her torch at the same time that she bought online for much cheaper. Hers seemed to use a lot less gas and got a quicker browning effect. I tried using mine a second time a few weeks later, and it wouldn't even ignite! I tried several times, and made sure the nozzle was clean, properly aligned and the gas was filled.I gave this product 3 stars only because Crate and Barrel's customer service exchanged it for me with my receipt without any hassle. I exchanged it for the same product, and when I opened the package, the nozzle was scratched up as if someone else was trying to fix theirs too! I haven't tried this one yet since I need to get more refill gas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect brown tops Fairly easy to use, especially for a first time torch user! But the lighting mechanism is a little tricky at first. I guess the safety latch was smarter than me :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Culinary Torch This is a great culinary torch. Great quality for the price. Flame is a little slow, but I found it to be helpful as I had never made creme brulee before. I was glad I did not have to worry about burning them. I bought the cheap butane from the grocery store and it worked great. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Creme Brulee This torch is so easy to use and browns creme brulee perfectly. It has a no-slip covering so you won't drop your flaming torch. It has a small flame so it can take a bit longer to brown things, but I'd rather have it that way than risk burning my desserts with a bigger flame. It is easy to fill with butane and the fuel lasts a long time so you don't need to refill part way through your job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, even in the garage too! I love this torch, it works great! The only problem with it is the lighting mechanism is a little tricky at first. Mainly has to do with the safety latch. It works great for a lot of dessert type applications, carmelizing sugar, meringues, works great to quickly sear sushi and occasionally my husband has used it in the garage. I would not recommend this type of application, however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy the right fuel! This torch works well once you buy the right fuel... DO buy the cheap butane meant for cigarette lighters. DON'T buy the fancy kitchen store butane meant for culinary torches. The fancy stuff won't load correctly, and you'll be frustrated and think your torch doesn't work. But with the cheap stuff from the grocery or liquor store, you're in business. Holds a good flame for a long time. Still takes a little while to brown 8 creme brulees, but gives a nice result overall.
