Excellent Kitchen Tool – Jet 1300-C Butane Lighter Reviews

posted by senseBOP on 05/01/2007

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.
Other:
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.
