I purchased a new kit but received a torch that had clearly been significantly used complete with scratches, green copper, and a darkened tip. Bad on Home Depot for not checking, will update review if customer service is able to help.

    Broke after 60 days
    I bought this as a replacement for my 1st series Bernzomatic torch which I had for nearly 12 years. This one lasted 60 days. Not kidding, 60 days with MINIMAL use and the igniter is dead. That should tell you all you need to know about the quality of this device.

      Great for Brazing Aluminum
      I did research in brazing Aluminum in this is recommended. Braze a 14 gauge Aluminum checkered plate to make a box and divider in my tool box (used blue demon triple play Aluminum brazing rod) and turn pretty darn good.

        That little black control knob to your right is very fragile. If will fall off if you hit something, not even strong impact. Besides this issue everything else is super great.

        I chose this torch kit due to the variable control knob and auto light function, also has a lock to keep flame alive without keeping the button pressed. My intent was to use this and Alumiweld to install some bungs onto an aluminum pipe. Worked flawlessly, always had it consistent flame, I would definitely recommend this product

        Great way to stay safe when lighting fireworks on the 4th of July. Been using the extended 3ft tip to light firwork show for years. We use the extra wide tip to give you an on demand heatgun everyday in my print shop. Gives you better precision and control when installing vinyl graphics & vehicle wraps.

        This torch burns really hot! I purchased it to solder 1" copper pipe to install a backflow preventer. The torch works well and the trigger start is a nice touch. I did not use the yellow MAP/PRO cylinder and instead used less expensive propane fuel. The torch works with both MAP/PRO and propane which is convenient because propane is 1/4 the cost of MAP/PRO. On full blast the Bernzomatic TS8000 torch has a huge blue swirling flame, but adjusting the flame control knob can be useful for smaller jobs.

          Upgrade from manual torch nozzle! The push button lighter replaces my manual (sparker) torch nozzle. Various reviews steered me to the premium Bernzomatic torch kit - I'm glad. It works really well and now when I'm heating my branding iron for my woodworking products, I can do it quickly, easily - and more safely. I have used the nozzle interchangeably on both MAP and standard (blue bottle) propane.

          Bernzomatic Max Heat Torch - TS8000T MAP/PRO
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the Bernzomatic Max Heat Torch - TS8000T MAP/PRO to Review. I have used Bernzomatic Torches and gas in the past. I had a 30 plus year "gooseneck" manual ignite Bernzomatic before our Home was Flooded in Denham Springs, LA on 8/12/2016 due to 41" of rain. I lost my old Bernzomatic Torch during the flood. The New Bernzomatic Max Heat Torch is MUCH better than my old "gooseneck" Torch. I LOVE the Automatic Igniter, the Torch lock to keep the torch on after you release the Igniter button and the Lock to keep from accidently Igniting the Torch. The Bernzomatic Torch comes with a Lifetime Warranty, but I would Defiantly Purchase another Bernzomatic Torch. This is the First time I ever Heard of or used the Bernzomatic Max Heat Torch, but I recently saw some Internet Advertisements. They showed attachments that can be purchased for the Torch and other Bernzomatic products and ideas, such as How To Burn Weeds & mend cracks in your driveway/sidewalk with a Torch and Nine Ways to Use a Torch and MANY other Neat Projects. My Home did not have a Main water shut-off valve at our Home, which to me is a must. It only had the main water meter shut off at the road, which you must have a special tool to access, such as an Emergency Gas and Water Shutoff Tool, which I did not have, they can be purchased at most hardware stores. Problem is the main water meter valve is about 100 yards from my Home. Also, my Home is two stories and has two water heaters in the attic. The water heaters did not have a Main water shut-off valve at the water heaters. Before I installed the Main water shut-off valve, I had to go the main water meter shut off at the road. So, my first project with the Torch was to install a Main water shut-off valve at our Home and Main water shut-off valves at the water heaters. I would Defiantly recommend the Torch to my Neighbors. https://www.bernzomatic.com/Community/Projects/Build

            One of my favorite tools to use
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a plumber and this is my go-to when I need to get the job done easy to transport, easy to use, the best hands down and very inexpensive. I received mine free through Power reviews on viewpoints in exchange for my honest review.

              Best nozzle with safety knob. Easy to use
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used this for lighting fires, thawing pipes and around this 250+ year old home. Worked excellent but what I appreciated was the safety nozzle on the side. I will not but another without THAT feature again. This one worked very easy.

                Best torch ever
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This torch is awesome, it has a lot of power behind it! We have had seveeral propane torces as we use them for work on the house, camping etc and this one is by far the best! The valve to control the amount of gas is a great feature that none of my other torches had! I would recommend this product to anyone!

                  Great torch
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This torch is definitely an upgrade from my previous one! I love that it has the dial to control the amount of flame I get! Great option for different projects!

                    Excellent Home owner grade torch
                    This torch was purchased because I was making hanging plant holders from 3/16 steel rod. Tacking this stuff together with my MIG welder was above my skill level especially, when I needed to connect 3/16 and 1/8 rod. While I built bending jigs I had to hold things together with clamps for welding which caused even more distortion in my steel hoops. So after reading reviews across the web I bought this product. Worked really well with mild steel rod. Get the rod red hot, use a small brazing rod and bingo, a great strong joint that I couldn't pull apart with a pair of Channelocks. Not a great pic but a good result. Another reviewer here pointed out that an extension hose was available so I'll pick up one of those too. Best homeowner torch in my experience. Can't wait to try it on aluminum.

                    680 loctite remover :)
                    I could not get the 680 loctite compound off the key way shaft, and no one online will sell me he loctite degreaser, so I got Mapgas product over the propane version, because of the high braking point for the loctite 680, and yes once the gear turned red hit with the punch and out came the key way shaft and gear with out effort. Heated for like maybe less than 15-20 sec below middle use on open flame port valve. The Home Depot employee carried it up front for me, it made me feel like royalty.
