  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from filling problems Filling the torch with standard 8 oz butane can, when you press the can down on the torch until they are flat against each other, the butane just leaks everywhere. A tiny amount gets into the torch. I removed the metal ring on the bottom of the torch, held by two tiny screws, and then was able to fill the torch without it leaking. How can the design/manufacturing be so flawed? Have others have had the same problem? Also, I cannot read the fuel fill level. Once filled, the torch lighted: move switch out of the OFF position; flip down the safety lock; depress the ignite button with your thumb. Note that if you release the ignite button the flame will go out but it will continue to leak butane until you move the lock switch to OFF position. It should not be so easy to leak butane. To avoid this you must only use the lock switch to turn the flame off. In short, it works, but it is a little too finicky when it could really be made more simple and reliable. I wouldn't recommend this torch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm After reading the reviews on line, I went to my nearby store to make my purchase, the ladies explained all what was needed, instructions were included as well. I did a practice run of making S'mores in a jar & like a charm.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where's the instructions??? While strolling around in the local WS, I noticed a house brand creme brûlée lighter. I have had perfect success using a Ronson candle lighter. Well, thought I, if the Ronson works, then this "dedicated" WS device will probably work even better. WRONG...despite the fact that there were no instructions included, I managed to get it lit--once. I was not impressed with it and it didn't work as well as the Ronson throwaway candle lighter. Just took it out of the drawer for a test ride after 4 months of no brûlées, and, guess what, now it doesn't work at all. Back to the Ronson. BTW WS: Why aren't the directions somewhere on the website?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Spark, Hard to Fill Hard to fill, Hard to see fuel Level. Out of the Box no spark on the igniter. Had to light it with a lighter. It's a shame, I typically love WS Products.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Performance, Returned to Store I read the reviews but decided to buy this WS "exclusive" torch anyway as most of the negative ratings seemed to be due to difficulties in filling the butane chamber as a result of inadequate instructions included in the box. PROS - (1) Easy to use, (2) You can point the nozzle downward unlike a propane torch purchased from a hardware store CONS - (1) Inconsistent output, even on the lowest settings the flame was sporadically long and/or wide, (2) Filling and refilling the butane was difficult and messy when the butane back-splashed once the chamber was full, (3) Poorly designed fuel "window" made discerning fuel level difficult - perhaps too much fuel caused leakage and resulting large flame I purchased this torch to make creme brulee and it generally did its job. However, I returned it to the store after only a few days as there are some glitchy tools you can deal with but a glitchy torch, not so much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from pleased with purchase After reading reviews of various brands on a major e-tailer's site, I was beginning to think they were all junk. But, after looking at this model in a W-S store, we decided to spend a little more since it seemed well made. I just finished caramelizing 10 pumpkin crème brûlées. I'm so happy we chose this torch! It's easy to ignite and comfortable to hold. My husband said it was easy to fill. Suggestion: Do a practice brûlée [see photo] to adjust the flame and figure out how close to hold the torch, how quickly to move it, etc. This torch will also come in handy for doing tortillas & red peppers. Since we switched to induction and have no gas burners, we've had to go outside and fire up the gas grill. This will be so much more convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I'm very pleased with this kitchen torch. I love the size, shape and its easy to use. I had no problems filling it with butane and it lite on the first try.
