Answer: 
Dear Valued Home Depot Customer,
We reached out to MFG for more information and below is their response.
“ The flame temperature, in air, of propane is 3600 degrees F. However, your material will never get to this temperature. The temperature of your material is going to vary dependent on your material. "

Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever!!! Torch was useless from the gate it did not work. The flux was maybe 1/3 full...maybe. The flux brush shed hairs unbelievably bad, had to pick brush fibers out of the flux and parts being fluxed. This inferior product cost be MORE TIME and MONEY. The only benefit I got was the propane. The company needs new management because of poor quality control. July 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok for 1/2" copper pipe If you are just soldering 1/2" copper pipe and fittings, this will do the job. It's kind of a pain to light the torch with separate spark or flame required. I used a wind resistant type lighter to light the torch and it worked well. If you are doing more than few joints or are soldering larger material, like a shower mixing valve, or larger pipe, spend the extra 20 to 30 bucks for a mapp gas (yellow bottle) torch with trigger igniter. It burns hotter and is way easier to use. I didn't really like the flux, so I ended up buying the H20 flux by Oatley, it didn't burn off as fast as the benzomatic flux that comes with this kit. May 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hopeless I went through two boxes of matches to do a 5 minute job. Every time the torch was moved through the horizontal position it went out. Literally every 5 seconds! Spend the extra cash for a proper one. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No Threads on Torch! There were no threads on the torch head to screw to the bottle. Obviously defective and will be returned. We had already cut and fit the pipes before finding out, so a major pain!! August 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a pro tool. Dont ever buy this product or you will never finish your plumbing job. The problem is in the solder. It is not made to join new and old copper pipes. My advice use acid core slder December 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by very poor pick even for an amateur Does not come with a striker so not a complete kit. Very difficult to light with a match. Then will not stay lit especially in a horizontal position. Takes 10 times as long to get the job done because of this. September 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Torch works well Used torch to replace a damaged 16" pipe section. Torch lit every time with striker and valve turned on very low. I kept the bottle below the valve as per instructions to not flood the valve and the flame never went out. Replaced pipe and no leaks. August 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for my small job and the price was right A lot of reviews talk about this not staying lit or not getting hot enough melt the solder. I think the one thing missing from this package is striker to light the torch. I picked one up for a few bucks after going home and realizing a match was not going to be a great way to light this thing. It took a few tries even with a striker but once it was going it stayed lit and was plenty hot enough to heat the pipe. May 12, 2015
