Getting a perfect sear with a blowtorch requires some mastery (and likely results in many wrecked dishes along the way). Searzall makes the process far more reliable. Attach one to a blowtorch and its flame is diffused through two layers of fine temperature-resistant wire mesh, creating a consistent and even flame to be used for attaining professional quality sears on a variety of meats or for making crème brûlée, melting cheese, and plenty more. It’s particularly useful for adding a bit of color to food cooked via sous vide and won’t imbue your grub with any of the off-putting flavors a bare blowtorch can. You will though also need a Bernzomatic TS8000 torch head and a 16.4-ounce tank of propane.
