Lakeland Cook's Blowtorch 1 "Useless" Dorothy 21 January 2018 I had problems trying to refill my blowtorch so Lakeland replaced it, all seemed well at first but now that it has run out of gas this replacement is also useless as the gas just runs out over the base. It seems to impossible to refill these things and into the bargain the trigger now doesn't seem to be engaging. I shall be taking this into the shop asap. Cremer Brûlée under the grill tonight! The rating should be 0 star! A note from the team Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to speak to me on the phone. I hope the tips I've given work for you. If you have any further problems a colleague will be happy to help when you return it to the store. TIPS - Make sure the blow torch is in the 'off' position. Turn upside down and insert the gas canister stem into the fill valve and press down for 3 to 4 seconds, repeat 3 times. After filling allow to stand for a few minuets for the gas to stabilize.
