I just bought the Creme Brulet Kit that I mentioned which comes with 4 little ramekins. And 2 4.0-fl. oz cans of Zippo butane fuel for $5.00 each.

Comes to about $30.00.

You got ripped off IMO, but as long as you are happy with your purchase then that is all that matters.

I just bought one for a few bucks. Bought it in a Belgian store, so I guess I'm not of much use! Wonder if it's going to work...

Let me know how this works. I bought the same thing at BBB for a birthday gift for a friend. My girlfriend made the creme brulee (which was fabulous) but the torch didn't work. I'm anxious to see if yours does.

What caused the torch not to work? Did she fuel it with butgane first?

I'll try mine right now.

Corey, I don't know why it didn't work - she was assuming it would work and was ready to use it and *nothing* - in a pinch, she used the flame and aim lighter - it took a very long time but we got the idea. She said she was gonna investigate it more later. Creme brulee was good though!

Mine works!!

I just followed the instructions on how to charge it, charged it with butane, waited five minutes and then I ignited it! And it works now!

Bring on the Creme Brulet!!!

ANDYM has the right idea. I bought a cute little creme brulee torch from Sur La Table. It took me 40 minutes to carmelize the sugar on 8 ramikins of creme brulee. Took it back and bought one from the hardware store. In 6 minutes all eight were beautifully browned. Forget "cute" go with what works.
