    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Very strong and hot flame.
    - Great, large tank.
    - Wide, and long reaching flame.

    Cons:

    - The material from which its made stinks a bit like old rubber, though this smell is almost completely gone by now (own it for a couple of months.)
    - Comes with a base piece you can stand this on which is not very useful as it doesn't fit it well enough, and the balance is a tad off in it.

    OtherThoughts:

    Even with the smell and the flimsy base piece, this is still a good buy. I bought it for use in the kitchen (for caramelizing sugar on various dishes), and I absolutely love it. It does everything I hoped it would.

    The lighter also has a locking mechanism to child-proof it.

    Bottomline:

    If you need a strong, in-expensive, torch, this is a good alternative. The flame is strong and consistent, and the lighter is easy to use.
