this torch is great! I use it in the kitchen all the time. I have a 3 foot extension hose that goes to a small propane cylinder and it is incredibly useful in putting direct heat on whatever I’m cooking. when doing a steak in a cast iron skillet, this makes it even easier to get a perfect char quickly. of course, you need a good exhaust hood, or your smoke alarm will let you know every time you use it. when I’ve made pulled pork and Frozen some, putting it on a hot cast iron skillet once thawed and hitting it for 30 seconds with the torch is perfection. it’s also useful for lighting grills, and if you use a smoke tube in your smoker with pellets in it, it will light them in 10 seconds. I’m tempted to get another one for a spare! highly recommended!
I bought this because it can do Mapp (map-pro gas) too. Which is worth it, my old propane torch was not compatible with the higher temp gas.
