    I dig the Iwatani because they use the butane cassettes. They are easily obtainable in the restaurant biz.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Cheers Jason, but the Bernzomatic isn't available here in Japan.

    That was another deciding factor for me. Butane cassettes for my Shinfuji are readily available both locally and online here.

    My apologies, attention to detail is normally a strength of mine. Try to get the highest powered one you can get. I can brown proteins in seconds.

    Happens to the best of us! I purchased the Shinfuji Power Torch RZ-840 at my local DIY store for 3500円. It's rated at 3.5kW (11,952BTU) and gets the job done quickly and effectively!

    Very informative thread! Backed the searzall as it seems like a very promising kit. Hopefully they can get it to be compatible with some torches available here in Europe
