(Update as of 01/21/2023 – The original Lennov Jet Torch that was reviewed is no longer available. The butane torch by inZaynity above is a comparable torch with good reviews. Any links in this article originally pointing to the Lennov Jet Torch will now point to the inZaynity Butane Torch.
I think I have finally found the best jet torch butane gas lighter! As an avid grilling and smoking (as in meats) enthusiast, lighting a chimney starter is an important and vital aspect of my hobby. I purchased a Zippo Lighter that I wrote about in this article, but after about six months the burner stopped working and it wouldn’t light.
I’ve used it now to light my chimney starters, inside fireplace, and outside fireplace on a regular basis and it has been working perfectly for 9 months. What I love about it is that it is refillable and I’ve only had to fill it a handful of times. The Zippo Lighter that I previously used had to be filled regularly and eventually it died.
- Package Dimensions – 6.46 x 5.71 x 2.09 inches
- Shipping Weight – 11 ounces
- Color – Black
- Awesome for lighting charcoal chimney starter in windy conditions
- Can be used as a culinary torch
- Adjusts from short flame to a longer flame
- Lock flame adjustment if need to use torch continuously
