Heard the build quality is pretty lacking on this and the screen needs to be replaced.

Never usually goes on sale, and I think this is the cheapest its been except for one time a few years ago when it was $69.

Edit: has been in the $79~ ballpark in 2016 and 2017 according to Cx3

Still in for one, Thanks OP.

I've seen the same comments about durability also but I think a lot has to do with how it's used (flame from the torch being too close to the screen.

That said, Guga from Sous Vide Everything loves this attachment.

Oh, and for those who are new to searing after sous vide or for any other reason and don't know much about the Searzall... yes, you need a torch to go with it.

Thanks OP.

I prefer a Benzomatic torch myself. But for those looking, it is a solid deal.

☝🏾 Way better than any other torch out there. Can light charcoals, do a steak Chicago style within 15 seconds per side, and I'm sure many other things! It's 400,000+ BTU's (most bbq's are <150,000 BTU's), and won't leave an odd taste on meant as it's burns off all the propane (hence the BTU efficiency).

I have it and love it!


CORRECTED: I apologize, I was mistaken. I referred to my video of me charring a steak and it was actually 30 seconds per side, not 15 seconds, with the grill gun.

FOLLOW UP: I have another video with a pile of steaks seared and I mention it took only 15 seconds per side so I can't remember. It may have taken 30 seconds per side because it was the first time I charred using the grill gun and probably got it down to 15 seconds when I got the hang of it. I haven't used it in a while, but I fairly certain it's closer to 15 second per side, off memory.

My Benzo TS8000 torch makes perfect sear by itself... and I paid $50 for that with a bottle of gas.
$89 for a tin can "attachment" is a joke.

Of course Guga loves it - he gets paid for every sucker that buys one through his Amazon link....

didn't Guga have a competition with all the torching equipment....winner was a flame thrower.....

@delan007 saw that on Guga as well...may look into getting one.

I just like the fact I can have 6 or 8 steaks and char them with the flame thrower at 200k BTU and done in <5 min for all of them....none of this one at a time...

$140US....I think I like my $20 Flamethrower from PricessAuto.... it does only put out 200K. though...better than those Benzo TS8000 torch that puts out 10K BTU.
Hopefully it goes on sale some time...

Searzall needs a benzomatic torch to work in case anyone isn’t aware. Personally, I finish my sous vide steaks in a cast iron pan.

Also, Sansaire sells a sous vide torch set which is basically a TS8000 with a different tip that spreads the heat. If you already have the torch, you can find that replacement tip for a few dollars.

Yeah, unfortunate because it was much cheaper on Kickstarter where I got it. But if you got the cash to spend and will use it religiously, it's worth it! No worrying about propane tasting meat either with its high efficiency. Apparently that's a problem with lots of these torches.

Where can you find the tip for few dollars?

Mine seems to take forever. Stopped using it. I think I got it from Kickstarter days or something. It was painful maybe like 5 seconds an area and keep slowly moving....

+1 I have both this torch, and a 1/2inch steel grill plate, and the preheated grill plate seats more evenly, and more quickly than a torch. There is night and day difference between using a cast iron or steel plate vs a torch.

The steel and iron plates are easier to use, more consistent, and less effort. Literally drop the steak, put a weight on top, walk away for 30 seconds and come back.

I also use the infrared on my Napolean which Sears more consistent and equally good as the steel plate. The torch just takes long, and requires more standing around and work.

Keep in mind, there's a key difference, as the torch blasts hot gas, the gas heats the air around it , and collectively both ride up as they are less dense due to their high energy level excited molecules. And you are pointing your torch downward so there is considerable energy loss. While when you use a infrared and or metal plate, they heat from the bottom.

People who are throwing around BTU numbers like 10k, 20k, 200k, are falling prey to marketing. There isn't a 180k BTU difference between torches no matter how efficiently they burn their gas. To increase thermal conductivity you need an effective medium, reduce heat loss by air, and concentration of thermal radiation which infrared achieved. Yes, the type of gas you're burning does make a difference, but when it's the same gas between three different torches, you're not going to see 180k BTU difference.

I've been doing sous-vide + cast iron for a while now and I'm very happy with the results.

My main issue is that it makes a lot of smoke and it splatters everywhere. I don't think I'll buy the Searzall but I like the idea of going on the balcony and searing in 2 minutes and not having to warm up a skillet or a grill.
