The RSVP Culinary Torch is a small flame torch designed for cooking use, typically to caramelise sugar on desserts or create flambé desserts. The torch is sold on the Internet or in culinary supply and department stores, and offers an on/off trigger and an adjustment lever for different flame sizes. The torch requires butane fuel for power and should only be used by adults due to the use of flames, heat and fuel. Operating the torch is relatively straightforward.
