To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a great little device. I bought it for craft type projects (popping bubbles in resin, paints etc) and it's maybe a little too aggressive for that - but hold it back far enough and it works great. The first start took a bit, but after that it starts pretty much bang on, simply twist the dial (you'll hear the gas) and then push the dial ..it'll click and woomph it'll be alight. If you need to move around - you'll need to give it 60-90 seconds to get warm .. after that you can move it around to almost any angle. Before that if you rotate it too much or invert, it'll struggle.
This is my first butane torch and I was blown away by it's performance. The heat patch produced at the end of the hoe is so hot that I could light up lump charcoal in my kamado grill in no time. ( No more fuel smell from lighter cubes ). I believe there are lot more use cases than lighting the charcoal so looking forward to using this more and more.
I have been impressed by the build quality of the product. Although I bought it from the Best Seller's list, it was well worth it. Fired up first time without too much hassle, so it does what it's meant to do. Highly recommended if you are after a blow torch.
Have only used it once but works as expected. If you are buying this product because it can be used at any angle be warned that it has a warm up period of 2 minutes before it can be tilted according to it's manual.
