Chef's Torch : Create pastry chef-quality crème brûlée at home. This essential tool directs the flame exactly where you need it. Also handy for melting cheese on French onion soup. Die-cast aluminum body has a fuel gauge and a childproof safety lock. Butane not included. 4"L x 1.5"W x 8"H.
I bought this chef's torch as a Christmas gift to myself and was I ever pleased. When I opened the box from Chefscatalog, I couldn't stop smiling. The torch doesn't come with butane for obvious shipping safety reasons, I'm sure. I bought the butane from the grocery store and I was good to go. The torch is easy to fill and has an indicator to let you know when the fuel is getting low. So far, I have used the torch for French Onion soup and Creme Brulee. It works great and I have had no problems with it. The family loves to watch me "torch" something, so it is a fun item. Highly recommended!
