The Rolls Royce of food torches, this Culinary Blow Torch puts out consistent reliable flames that create amazing crusts in no time. This torch uses butane canisters which are very inexpensive and it uses them efficiently. You just twist the torch onto the canister and are good to go! No messy filling of compartments. The flame never goes out no matter how quickly you move the torch around or at what angle you use it. The lighting motion is very simple with a twist to open the fuel line and a pull of the trigger to ignite. You will never have to attempt ignition more than once and the flame will never go out.
Why did we choose a Butane Blowtorch? The type of gas used is not nearly as important as the technique used to perform the sear. The most important thing is to be sure that the flame produced by the torch is a fully oxidizing flame. In this type of flame the gas is being completely combusted and can be identified by the dark blue, relatively short, flame that hisses and roars.
How to use:
The best technique to practice when using a blowtorch is to use a sweeping motion, where the flame goes slowly back and forth across the surface to evenly ‘scorch’ the food. Don’t concentrate too long on one area, or the food may burn.
