Reviews and Top Picks

Hi, I’m Jane, thanks for dropping by the In this section we’ll review the best torches and lighters available; the best of the best, so feel free to scroll down to the type of torch or lighter that you feel is most applicable to your needs.

I would urge you to read through each review, make sure the model or models you are researching are the best for your hobby or work. Each of the reviews has a pros/cons section plus our recommendation. Also, read the reviews on Amazon and other sites. Other than our recommendations, I think the reviews left by other customers will give you a good idea of the quality and fit for a particular purpose.

This guide is intended to simplify matters for you and help you make a buying decision so you make the best choice and get the right product for you. As with everything, normally the better more reliable products cost a little more and cause less headaches, so keep that in mind during your research.

Top Overall Butane Torch

Blazer GT8000 Big Shot Butane Torch

Blazer GT8000

This is one of the most popular torches sold on Amazon and for reason. It’s reliable, holds a massive amount of fuel and can be used for a variety of tasks. For example, cooking in the kitchen, plumbing, automotive, dental, soldering and lighting the occasional cigar, though be careful and point the flame away from your hands and face. This torch will even work at different angles.

  • Precise flame up to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Piezoelectric ignition system
  • Stand for hands free operation

There are really not any downsides to this torch and a major majority of people that purchased the torch are very happy with its performance. This is one of my favorite torches in my collection. Read more.

There you have it, the best of the bunch and all the information you could ever possibly need to find a butane torch that will give you all the features you need.

Of course, you are always going to get what you pay for, and if you like the idea of a certain type of torch and want something with, say, a greater fuel capacity or a hotter flame, then you can always purchase a higher-end model.

I usually find the best deals online, usually on sites like Amazon, but if at all possible, I visit stores in my local area so that I can see the physical product for myself before making a final purchase. I urge you to do the same.

I hope this has helped you move a little closer to making a decision, or maybe even making a decision and taking the plunge with what is to become your new torch!
