Today we're going to talk about this Sterno candle lamp butane torch. How it operates, how it attaches to the canister, how we turn it on, how we turn it off, and how we take it off. We're also going to talk about a few safety details. The first thing I want to talk to you about are the different components of the Sterno candle lamp butane torch. This is the gas control knob. This allows more or less fuel into the torch to make the flame bigger or smaller. This is the coupler. This is what attaches it to the torch. The is the trigger, this is what actually ignites the torch and makes the flame go. This is the barrel, this is where the flame comes out. Just so you know, this gets very hot during use, so you want to be careful. So the first thing that we want to do is make sure that the collar is all the way open. This is closed. This is open. Eight ounce canister of butane fuel. This is the bayonet. We want to be sure this is on a flat, secure surface. This is open, we put this directly on top of the canister, we clicked down. We take our thumb and forefinger, grasp the collar and the can, and turn until it's secure. Now comes to the fun part, igniting the torch. This is the gas control knob we talked about earlier. Let's turn this on, about a turn and a half you'll hear a slight hiss - it's a good sign. And click, that's all there is to it. To make the flame bigger, give it more gas, to make a smaller give it less gas. Then we turn it off. Remember this barrel is going to get blazing hot so be careful, let it cool down for about five minutes before you detach it from the canister. To detach it's very simple just go in reverse. Canister down, hold the coupler hold the can, twist this way and pull off. So, quick review: open, down, snap, hold the collar, hold the can, we twist the head of the torch. We wait for the hiss, there it is, and then we ignite. Now the great thing about this torch is it can be used in all sorts of different directions. Not just like this, but like this, like this, all the way around. It has an anti-flare device so there's no threat of that kind of dragon effect that you get with so many of the torches. Now let's take a look at one of the great things that we can do with this torch. So this is a simple creme brulee. This has already been sugared and it's ready to go. We're going to ignite the torch, it takes about ten or fifteen seconds get great caramelization on this, nice and hot and it's ready serve. It's a nice hard crust on there. This is just one of the great ideas that you can use with this torch, other ideas are ice sculpting, precision flambe table-side cooking techniques, all of these things will increase your business. This is an ideal item. Not just for the back of the house, but for the front of the house as well.
