"Excellent product for the money. Does not flare even when turned upside down and produces a good sized flame about 9mm diameter. Only slight niggle is the gas flow control knob is very sensitive when using a small flame. Can't speak for reliability however - not used it enough.
ps. it uses a CGA600 connection to propane / MAP gas. You can't use the butane/propane mixes which use a different connection (58559)."
