This works well and it is easy to fill. I found that it is easy to control the flame size which is great. I like that it is easy to light but it comes with a safety feature that ensures my children can't use it if they were to ever get their hands on it...However, I keep it out of reach at all times and if you have children I'd think of a safe place to store this culinary torch out of reach in your kitchen in advance.
The torch is well made and it honestly even looks nice enough to leave in plain view on a high shelf or something. The base that it comes with is very handy and it helps to make sure your item won't tip over from being top-heavy.
After I learned how to properly use this bad boy I have had no troubles with it at all! Make sure to learn what youre doing before just diving in like I originally did lol. You'll get better results if you do.
