This chef butane torch puts the finishing touch on delectable desserts and mouthwatering meals. Caramelize the sugar on a crème brulée or a meringue, glaze the icing on a cake, melt cheese on a casserole, brown and crisp meats, skin tomatoes, roast peppers, or put the finishing touches on an ice sculpture. With a 4873 BTU output, this restaurant torch provides a large, high-performance flame that heats to 2,192ºF. Push-button auto ignition makes it easy to light and can be locked in the “On” position. An adjustable flame knob lets you control the size and shape of the flame, and an anti-flare device prevents accidents. The Chef Master professional kitchen torch easily screws onto an 8-Oz. butane fuel canister, which provides about 3 hours of burn time.
