Hot! – Pen Style Butane Jet Torch and Lighter (with Easy-Adjust Switch) Reviews

posted by liamjford on 12/13/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Hot! Really hot, good for use in cooking (for burning on glazes) and for craft work. And just as a normal lighter. The mini stand is nice for when you are using it a lot. It says you can leave it on for 5 mins at a stretch without any damage (the gas lasts longer than that btw) but parts of the unit get hot when you do that.
Cons:
Once when refueling started to leak near the flame adjust. Stopped after a few seconds and never did again - but scared me a little, if that had caught fire would have been a mission to put out.

Saying that not happened since (and I've tried to make it happen).
Other:
Feels a little plasticy, but pretty hardy.
Bottomline:
Good bit of kit for pyromaniacs
