Lakeland Cook's Mini Blow Torch 1 "Absolutely useless" Mrs christine macrae 15 May 2018 I bought this mini blowtorch last week in the Inverness store where the shop assistant praised this mini torch as being just as good as the large one. I very much regret not buying the larger one as this TOY is absolutely hopeless.it takes about 5minutes to caramelise ONE creme brûlée.
