If you are anything like me, you enjoy taking long draws from a dab rig and sitting back and enjoying the euphoria after coughing your brains out. Sadly, in order to really enjoy smoking on your dabs, having a good torch is key. This is because in order to enjoy dabs using a regular rig, you need to be able to get it hot enough to basically vaporize the wax. This is why we were nice enough to make a list of the top ten butane and dab torches available on the market today! Whether you are looking for the perfect torch to make for a better smoking experience or just something to add to your kitchen collection, you will find a torch just for the occasion here!
I would personally recommend this torch for those who smoke a lot of dabs and don’t want to keep having to refuel every day. Most propane tanks last quite a while when only being used for a torch and the heating power behind it is powerful.
Being a propane torch, you can buy a small tank of fuel and it will last longer than most butane torches. Also, there isn’t any fuss with refueling in general, as you just attach the tank of fuel and enjoy. After all, no one wants to have to interrupt their smoking session with refueling.
A bit bulky
If you are looking for something a bit more handheld, this is definitely not the torch for you, unless you buy a small propane tank. Otherwise, going with kitchen butane torch may be a better choice.
This one is a personal favorite! In fact, I use this one daily and it works great! It’s hand held, has a wide base and instantly lights with no problems. In fact, the fuel last quite a bit throughout daily use and I never have to worry about it falling over.
Because this torch doesn’t require a separate fuel tank, it’s compact and portable. Plus, it has an ignition lock so you don’t accidentally set your bag on fire when you take it on the go! Also, you can set it to stay lit if you need to use it for something hands free.
Gas flow adjuster
Another great thing about this torch is that it has a fuel adjuster on it so you can control how hot your flame is and how much fuel you use. The hands free use is pretty great too when you have your hands full with a rig and tool.
Here is another great hand held torch that does the job! Burning super hot and with a precise flame, this little torch packs a punch and makes any smoking session flow with ease. Nothing is worse than waiting ten minutes for your rig to be hot enough to use, and this little torch makes heating up your rig fast and easy.
This is another great butane torch with an adjustable flame that can meet many of your needs. Whether you are trying to create the perfect dessert or trying to hit some dabs, this torch makes either possible.
Refillable and easy to use
The Authenzo torch is super easy to use and with a with a twist of the end, you can control how hot you want your flame, as well as being able to refill it when needed.
Here is a slick torch that is bound to have your friends asking questions. Not only does it look nice but it works great as well. Although it doesn’t hold as much fuel at the other hand held torches, it’s easy to use one handed and adjustable.
As you noticed, many of the other hand held torches on this list have the button on the backside. This torch has a button that feels like a trigger, making it easier to light, and easier to hold.
Not for extended use
If you are someone that only hits a dab rig every so often, then this little guy may be perfect for you. It only hold 11 grams of fuel, so you may catch yourself refilling this often if you are a daily user.
To say this torch is a professional would be an understatement. It lights fast, quick, and safely. Whether you are smoking dabs or searing a steak, this hand held torch is great for a lot of things. The flame gets super hot and you can adjust the flame and fuel as well.
Place in the freezer for maximum capacity
That’s right, if you put your torch in the freezer before you fill it with fuel, the butane at room temperature will fill your torch full. No more filling it half way and only getting to use it for a short period time before having to refuel all over again.
Easy to use
The EurKitchen was definitely easy to use and even easier to hold. With simple and short instructions, any amateur can use this torch with ease and enjoy doing it.
Having a continuous flame mode, this torch can make life a little more hands free, which means convenience. Sometimes dab rigs can require both hands, meaning trying to fumble with your torch is the last thing you want. This is why this torch makes it to the list at number six.
Like most torches, you can use this torch for just about anything that needs to be cooked, seared, melted, or brûléed. Whether it’s a kitchen tool or a helpful dab companion, we really enjoyed this torch.
Another great thing we liked about this torch was that it comes with a safety lock. You want to make sure that you torch is safe to have around the kids and won’t catch things on fire, this torches safety lock ensure that.
One thing we really appreciated about this torch was that it had a flame guard. There is just something scary about watching that blue flame come shooting out too close to the fingers. After all, we want to keep our fingers in order to accomplish a fulfilling rip on a dab rig. Aside from the flame guard, this torch was easy to use and definitely did the job.
All good torches should really come with a safety lock, and this one in particular does. No worrying about catching things on fire by accident or risking your kids torching things they shouldn’t.
If you need a torch that gets your dab rig hot without wasting all it’s fuel, this was a good choice. Because you can adjust the flame, you can make your torch as hot as you need it to be.
This is another great butane torch that has a flame guard and sturdy base. No need to worry about knocking your torch over and risk breaking it with its wide base and hand held portability. It’s toward the bottom of the list because it didn’t seem to be made of very good material and it used fuel fast.
Child Safety Lock
There is a great child safety lock on this torch that you have to initiate the same time you light it, which makes accidental lighting less of a worry. You can keep this torch around, knowing that the kids won’t easily use it.
Refilling was a bit tricky
Because this torch uses fuel quickly, refilling it is something you will get to used to. However, refilling the torch was a bit of a challenge and seemed to spit more fuel out than take in.
This torch was so easy to use and something you would want to keep around if you are a heavy torch user. The fuel tank isn’t a certain size, but actually the size of a can of butane you get for it. So depending on how much you use your plan on using it, will depend on what size tank is good for you.
Refills are a breeze
No trying to shove a can of butane against a fuel tank on a torch and hoping that it actually fills up. This torch allows you to connect the torch itself to a can of butane and makes for a more better way to keep track of fuel.
Like many torches, this one also has an adjustable flame, however it really only goes from a slow flame to a hard flame. Whether you need it to just heat up some marshmallows or you need it to heat a dab rig, it does the job.
This one was probably the more versatile of all the torches on this list. It comes with different attachments and accessories to make using this torch completely convenient. Whether you need a torch for heating up your dab rig or soldering jewelry, there is an attachment that fits this torch.
Independent ignition trigger
I know, sounds a bit fancy, but all that really means is that the torch is supposed to light with ease. No having to press a button or pull a trigger multiple times in order to get your torch to light. However, at times the torch needed to be ignited with another lighter.
Flame lock switch
Another great feature that this torch has, and many other great ones on this list, is a flame lock switch. This is great when you need to use your torch hands free or if you are trying to avoid any accidental ignitions.
There are many different kinds of butane and dab torches on the market. Some are better for those who use their torch daily, perhaps a dab smoker, and some are better for those chefs who only use their torch occasionally. Whether it be a good dab torch your are looking for or just a butane torch to sear some steak, we are sure you will find a great torch on this list. Remember, if you have kids, try to find a torch that locks in order to ensure that there aren’t any accidents. Torches get extremely hot and should be used with caution.
