Tool: Hand-Held Torch


Device used for applying flame directly to foods. The most common use is to melt and caramelize sugar on top of Creme Brulee.

Compact versions are used by pastry chefs. They have adjustable flames for more control. The torch also comes in handy for melting grated cheese and browning meringues and the tops of tarts.
