... dont use it for creme brulee but it works good for our purpose
September 19, 2017
We dont use it for creme brulee but it works good for our purpose
This torch is really nice and a little cheaper than the other big torch
March 1, 2016
This torch is really nice and a little cheaper than the other big torch. This is pretty big in your hand. I like the brand Newport. The forst torch I had was the Newport mini which was great except the trigger safety lock, and trigger was hard to push. This torch has no safety. Just push and go. And I noticed it seems a little hotter than the mini torch and obviously holds more butane. I would reccomend. it's only been 1 day but my Newport mini torch (same brand) has been used daily for a couple months without issue
This torch is huge!
January 19, 2016
Have had newport torches before and this one lives up to the newport name. This torch is huge! Works great, powerful flame, and I'm not anticipating having to refill it very often which is exactly why I ordered it. A bit larger than I thought it would be but I can't complain. Got here on time through prime.
This is a great torch, all around.
December 16, 2015
Everything about this torch feels solid, except the adjustment knob. That said, the adjustment knob is sensitive and does a great job at controlling the jet. The flame is excellent and powerful until you get down to very small/micro torch size, but that's not what I bought it for. This is a great torch all around and it's already my go-to.
They are amazing to use

I bought this torch and used it for my Crème Brûlée. They are amazing to use. I am sharing this product on my blog.I will share the link once I post :)
Superb performance and visually appealing!
October 17, 2015
Out of the many things on Amazon that I have purchased and waited for - this was by far the best service. I ordered it quite late at night, and yet I still received this within just a few days. I hardly felt like I waited for it at all. The torch itself is quite spectacular in terms of performance and visual appeal [frankly I am apprehensive about getting oily fingerprints on it, it is that nice]. If you have any reasoning for using/ purchasing a butane torch, I certainly suggest this one. The tank itself is about twice the size of a butane supply cartridge and the paper manual claims a burn time of 40 minutes. Most table-top torches (that I have used) burn out in about 20 uses of about 15-30 seconds of continuous flame; so I look forward to seeing how well this one works out over an extended period of frequent use! But in the two days I have had it, it works like the first time, every time! 5 stars. Great product, excellent packaging and service. I recommend you make this your selection.

Better Torch for Less Money - Good Company Follow-up
September 7, 2015
I ordered another competitors torch first. It didn’t work properly. I tried to go to the manufacturer and all they said was send it back to Amazon. This company on the other hand did wonderful. Not only was this torch less money and better designed, it worked great. In addition, as soon as I had it the company contacted me to see if I liked it. They cared. I can recommend this torch completely and I use it for certain dishes after cooking them Sous Vide.

I used my Ever Chef Torch for the first time tonight. Made Mexican Ice Cream. It was awesome and so easy. The torch is so much easier to use than the oven. And also fun. Wouldn't all my grandchildren love to see this. Maybe next time. I found plenty of recipes on line and adapted them to what I thought would work. Everyone loved it. I would recommend this torch wholeheartedly. My next project this week will be to make carmelized onions. Also, never again will I have to toast nuts, etc. for baking and cooking. The torch will be much easier. Thank you for making this product available.ViAnne Hilgart
This torch has a great flame, EverChef customer service was awesome
August 3, 2015
This EverChef torch turned out to be a great torch at a great price. For 30$ it has more features the my old one. It also feels much more solid. I got the zippo butane to go with it, filled it up per the instructions and it fired right up. Nice even and consistent heat.I will probably be giving one or more as a gift later this year. I had a few questions for the seller which were answered promptly and packaging was solid.
Best Torch I've Ever Used
June 27, 2015
Ever Chef Culinary Torch is easy to operate, and the gas is available from most supermarkets. The flame is strong and consistent. Filling with butane is very straightforward. Not only great in the kitchen but also for lighting fires and searing meat. In fact, it's pretty useful anywhere and it's way better than using matches anymore! Overall very happy with the result. Very easy to use. Now I enjoy making beautiful desserts all the time!
Very easy to use
December 7, 2014
Handy kitchen torch. Very easy to use. Can get butane canisters at Wal-Mart for around $2.00! Worked great on my Creme Brulee.

I'd say it is a nice torch, did not last as good as a regular tank torch. but lasted a good while and was easily refillable, happy customer.
Not the best for heating your nail up quickly when dabbing
May 22, 2016
Good torch, not the best for heating up a titanium nail but it works. It doesn't have a lot of power behind the flame so it can't heat up quickly. It works best on a quartz nail and when you turn it all the way up.
This is a very nice torch. And it better be for the price
April 5, 2016
This is a very nice torch. And it better be for the price. After reading several reviews on several torches, I settled on this one. Not only because it's gold, but because it has the best reviews and it's big. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because a large portion of the gold is just plastic. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice if it had a bit more metal in its construction. That being said, I filled it up when it arrived, and it didn't light. I soon realized that the gas control knob was turned all the way down. Once I had things adjusted I fell in love with it. It sparks on the first try every time, the ignition button is very easy to use, the flame lock switch works fantastic. You can hold this at any angle during operation and the flame stays steady and consistent (EVEN UPSIDE-DOWN) Overall I am very pleased with this torch. And should it come down to it, I will certainly buy again. I recommend this for anyone who is looking for a nice sturdy hand held torch with adjustable and locking flame settings. For those of you looking for a kitchen torch, this is perfect. It works well for metal work also. And for those of you cannabis patients looking for a good dab torch, this works nicely. It heats up my grade 2 titanium nail just right every time.

Coolest tourch Ever. Got it for a friend in the business and not only does it work great, it's easy on fuel. Perfect for the guys but the next size down Gold Tourch' should Look as cool I think ;) Super happy with it forsure!

February 21, 2016
The back trigger is a little tough to use (me being female with delicate hands, even my stronger friends said it was kinda stiff) but other than that the flame and adjuster work very smooth, and it was delivered on time
Good but could be better

Works as expected, but the base is hollow and the lil pad quickly fell off.Serviceable, if cheap construction.

Culinary Torch by Ever Chef
January 4, 2016
Since it was Christmas, had my grandson install the butane and light an outdoor gas torch.for a party. However, have lost the instructions for using in the manner intended (culinary), and please have Ever Chef email me instructions or supply me with their email address. A search of the internet and Amazon has provided no info.. Grandson liked it.

September 17, 2015
This product works fine but I wish the ad noted more clearly that it DOES NOT OPERATE WITHOUT FUEL CANISTER. I purchased the item and set it aside for use on dessert at party I hosted last night. When I opened the device to crisp up the top of my dessert, I discovered the torch had no fuel. I had to run to the store in my middle of my party. The device looks like it houses a canister already.
August 3, 2015
Works good, once I figured out the different knobs and levers. Easy to direct the flame, feels good in the hand. I just wish it had a fuel indicator -- not sure how much to put in or what will happen if I overfill it.
Three Star Reviews:
Amazing torch. Looks great
October 23, 2017
Amazing torch. Looks great. It’s jumbo. The push button is great and igniter is immediate. BUT, for people like me who are heating up thick guartz nails with it, the flame temp is too low to heat it up quick even when turned up high. Probably burns at like 1200’ f. I mean it works just takes a long time to heat up & clean. Blazers are really the way to go for high temp especially with the Big Shot burning around 2300’
GOLD GIMMICK: was disappointed to find that it's all plastic
April 5, 2016
It's a decent torch but I believe it to be over priced for what you receive. The gold color looks nice but it's pretty much all plastic. It has an adjustable flame as well as a flame lock mechanism. Easy fill up from the bottom with a plastic base for upright storage. If the "gold gimmick" is why you're interested in this particular torch then I suggest you find something a little more durable with less plastic.
It's cool but it's cheap so hold onto that receipt and ...
January 24, 2016
Used one for a year and a half before it broke. Has a "lifetime warranty" however you need to have your original receipt and proof of purchase. It's cool but it's cheap so hold onto that receipt and POP because you're going to want to send it in in a year or two.
Good price, just way too beefy for me
November 12, 2016
This is a very intense flame. Much more than I require for culinary use. It is also required that you switch OFF the flame to totally extinguish. The setting from low to high doe not shut off the torch as in some other models. Good price, just way too beefy for me.
January 25, 2016
Not too bad of a flame. Clicker went out after 2 months of daily use.
Worked decent at first but broke very quick
November 9, 2015
It was an "ok" torch whenever I first got it, when it worked it worked kinda hit and miss and it wouldn't hold a constant flame it would always change and it had problems with lighting, after about 2 months it stopped working, it won't spark and it just leaked butane, all in all you get what you pay for
) I do like the self lighting feature
September 3, 2015
This item holds the flame, but takes a while to brown sugar on creme brulee. It also uses up more propane than I thought it would use. (Buy extra cartridges. Amazon has them cheaper than most stores.) I do like the self lighting feature. Makes the product seem safer and it is less hassle than needing a match/lighter. I would not buy this product again, but I will use it while it lasts.
but it's fine.
June 12, 2015
Butane is a little leaky, but it's fine.

Glorified BBQ grill lighter
January 25, 2016
I can't believe I paid that much for it. Sigh... Live and learn. It's flame resembles a torch flame in only the loosest sense of the word. I planned to heat some small, mild steel bits, and bend/shape them with pliers. Pliers and a vise, were more effective. My advice, save $30 and buy a $5 refillable butane lighter. If it didn't have a locking switch, it would have gotten one star. For that, I had to acknowledge its slight worth.
Locked on FLAME LOCK
November 28, 2015
I was initially excited by the unique color (most come in silver) and the FLAME LOCK feature. Unfortunately, I am returning this because it was very hard to slide into FLAME LOCK while holding the other button to keep the flame going. I still like the color very much and I wished it wasn't so cumbersome to use.
average or below.

June 22, 2015
Purchased 4 torches. They worked for less than a week before dying. Would be acceptable for infrequent home use, but no where near durable enough for heavy usage.
You get what you pay for.

September 17, 2014
I have been very disappointed. It generally does not light when the trigger is pushed. If I light it off of a match or candle, it provides a good flame that can be used, but it really should light on its own trigger.
Not for searing steaks
July 24, 2014
I bought this torch for the sole purpose of searing steaks that I cook sous vide. It was a poor choice in that it is not hot enough to sear meat in a reasonable period of time. It was returned.

Do not buy!!!!
May 15, 2017
I purchase this torch around April 20th and it's already TRASHED. all the reviews are great but as soon as I got mine it would not let me refill it. So once it was out of butane that was it. it seems like the bottom of the torch may not have been made correctly because everyone else says they can refill there's except the one I received.

Product has not worked from day one. It does not light. It does not expel the gas for lighting.
Dangerous - Exploded on first use - DO NOT BUY!!!!
July 6, 2016
DO NOT BUY. This exploded in my kitchen during the first use. Burned my husband's face, hair, hands and arms. Product needs to be recalled. Dangerous.
October 20, 2015
Arrived broken in three pieces.
Stopped working after 4 or 5 uses
July 17, 2017
Very disappointing. Worked great 4 or 5 times then completely stopped working. Flame ignites but only comes out smaller than your average bick lighter. Great the first few times it worked. Maybe we just got a lemon but disappointing none the less.
January 13, 2017
I cannot get it to work. Filled it with Butane, of course but cannot get it to work. How can I return it?
December 11, 2016
Would not start. Had to send back.
Weak yellow flame, stay away from this product.
March 6, 2016
Despite poor instructions, it is pretty simple to figure out the controls. The issue is the flame, I can't get a strong blue frame but rather candle-like yellow weak flame. Stay away from this product, there are others in Amazon that may do a better job than this.
Good when you get it. Broken in a few weeks.
January 20, 2016
It worked when I received it. Now all of a sudden it just stopped working. I don't know how or why it just pooped on me. I tried refilling the butane and it fills it up but no flame.
Never able to use it
July 21, 2015
Couldn't get this thing to work. It may be user error but the instructions were lacking/poor.
