If you’ve never used a culinary torch before, you’re in for some fun in the kitchen!

Pyro or not, searing and roasting different foods with this nifty gadget is not only fun, but it’ll give your meals the most delicious texture and flavor!

From smoked salmon to crème brûlée and more, there are tons of yummy foods that you can enhance with a culinary torch and this one from Amazon is not only well-made, but super affordable!

Disclaimer: By the way, this post is not sponsored, I discovered this product on Amazon and loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you!


Here’s why I love this highly-rated blow torch from Amazon:

Holding a blow torch on a table

It’s extremely easy to operate.

Upon receiving my new culinary torch, I was immediately eager to put it to use, but also a little intimidated so I was thrilled when I realized how incredibly easy it was to operate.

Filling a blow torch with butane

There’s just one button to ignite the flame, a simple dial to adjust the strength of the flame, and even a convenient lock feature to ensure safety. To fill, simply insert the gas canister tip into the fill valve on the bottom of the torch and push lightly. Give the gas 2-3 minutes to settle before use and you’re all set. Easy peasy!

IMPORTANT TIP: Don’t forget to purchase butane fuel separately as it is not included with the torch!

“This kitchen torch is a great tool. It is very easy to use and handle. I had not purchased a torch before, so was glad that I read previous reviews and ordered the butane refill at the same time so was able to fill it and fire it up once I received it. The torch is easy to light and adjust. I would recommend this product; it is a good value for the price.”


Searing salmon with a blow torch

You can use your culinary torch on a variety of different foods and desserts.

If you fall in love with this cooking torch as much as I have, you’ll be looking for reasons to put it to use! Luckily, there are tons of different foods you can torch, sear, blacken, and roast including steaks, hams, and ribs, tarts and brûlées, French toast, and even a few fruits.

Use it on your cheese-covered casseroles to make them more comforting and delicious or use it on fresh bell peppers to make roasted veggies more flavorful and enticing.

You can even take pizzas to the next level by giving them that wood-fired flavor with your multipurpose culinary torch. If you’re a foodie and appreciate flavor with some depth, this kitchen gadget will be your new best friend!

“Amazing torch for cooking! Makes creme brulee surfaces so easily! Also good for crisping the fat on steaks, flambeing, crisping shrimp, and lighting candles effortlessly. Definitely easy to use!”

It’s perfect for indoor s’mores!

What do you do when it’s raining outside or you have nowhere to build a fire for s’mores? Get out your handy culinary torch and get those marshmallows toasted!

They taste just as good as they would over a real fire and you don’t even need to step outside. You can also take your torch with you on camping trips and use it as a fire starter or hot dog roaster. Who knew such a simple tool could do so much!

The size of the blow torch is just right.

I love how comfortable the design of my cooking torch is. The grip isn’t bulky or awkward and the handheld size also makes it easy to transport and keep stored in a kitchen drawer. If you’ve never used a cooking torch before, this is the perfect one to start!

“I really loved using this blow torch! I’m an artist, and use it on my work, such as geodes and paint pours, and I love it. It’s a perfect size, doesn’t slip out of your hand, has an easy to use adjustable dial on the side to adjust the flame, has a lock switch to use for both keeping your flame on, or for locking it off after use. It’s easy to fill and lasts a while. I highly recommend it. Two thumbs up 👍🏼 👍🏼”


Holding a cooking torch

You can count on the quality.

Before I chose my cooking torch from Amazon, I browsed quite a few comparable products and mulled through reviews looking for red flags. I didn’t want to find myself purchasing a replacement within two months like with many other similar torches. It’s been four months since I first purchased my beloved culinary torch and she’s still going strong!

    Anyone else have trouble saying the botane fuel can’t be delivered to your address ?

    • Tara

      I think some states restrict shipping items such as butane. But you can find butane refills in smoke shops and I believe hardware stores.

        Thank you!
