    Don’t put butter into your sous vide steak bag. Guga did a video on it. Was not the best I think.

    Why didn't they address the fact that the gun completely ruined (melted???) their trays? Or did I hallucinate? Weren't they tilted after both steak and salmon?.. to me it's kind of a big deal if I have to use a separate ruined tray set...

    didn't know i needed a flamethrower.....till now

  • Efreeti

    I wonder how that Flamegun compares to something like a Searzall, which turns the fire of a regular propane blowtorch into radiant heat for searing your meat.

  • donkfail1

    Have we now come to the point (with the gun) when it's more enjoyable to cook the steak than eating it?

    I'd happily get the cold brew. I have plenty of beans, but find myself buying cold brew from the store. Something like that would be nice.

    A pre smoothed cast iron is indeed novel. And that thing clearly is not seasoned at all. It should be black

    If I didn't feel like I'd burn my house down I'd totally go for that flamethrower... err SU-V gun.

    I know cold brew is all trendy and everything. But all you need is a $10 Vietnamese coffee brewer over a glass of ice for a perfect iced coffee.

  • Petrichor

    You know, we all made fun of Ben when he called himself a lad, but he's the only one that remains completely calm when faced with scary situations in the kitchen, and he's the most willing to try the seemingly dangerous gadgets like the coconut shaver.

    Has anyone mentioned that this was recalled in the US? www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2020/grillblazer-recalls-propane-torch-guns-due-to-fire-hazard (And how unsurprised I was that this was an American product, even Oklahoma product (and yes, I'm American))

    to duplicate Sarah Bee: ahh, yes (duplication stops here). #1 cold brew? nah. #2 fry pan? thrift store / opp shop, wash, season, use. just heard the stats on the pan: OMG. you people have never been to the Southern US where every person who breathes has several of these which they inherited from gran. and they don't stick if you start with proper temp, (usually). #3 sous vide gun? give me a .357, oh, sorry, that's from my job. give me my little torch which also provides me with creme brulee finish, etc. or, i'll throw some briquets on the Weber... i still miss the 'butt/t first...' intro

    Don't use a plastic/ silicone spatula on cast iron, you need a metal one. I've used cast iron for close to 40 years and it's overpriced.

  • acepilot1

    4 hours for a drink or 20 seconds for a sizzling dinner

  • Maggieroselee

    Men would love that gun for bbqs

  • djhutchison

    So, the guy that backed the cold brew refused to sample the coffee? Way to sell people on the product...

  • Sidewinder

    Yea gotta agree with the cast iron pan not being original. Before we got really good at casting iron, pan manufacturers used to have to machine pans to get them somewhat flat. Machining the pan is kind of pointless now since a cheap Lodge cast iron pan is flat enough.

  • nikushim666

    "18,000 people think you're wrong" well 18,000 trust fund hipsters are retarded.

  • nuget102

    You can get that machined finish on a cast iron by (about to trigger cast iron fans world wide) sanding the inside of your regular cast iron pan. Obviously don't do it with a nice 100 year old cast iron, but I've seen it done on cheap Lodge cast irons from walmart.

  • bloemundude

    Just what the kids asked for. The Home Hiroshima torch!!

  • BradKandyCroftFamily

    As I have used cast iron for a long time, and that cast iron doesn't look well seasoned. A good seasoning is much darker. I have never had a good season that is sooo light. I have taken crappy cast irons and made them premium by simply sanding them out myself.

    4 hours to wait for a coffee?!? I know good coffee shouldn't be rushed but 4 hours is too long there is other method for cold brew coffee such as nitro coffee that uses whipped cream container and small CO2 tank

    The gas gun I use in my kitchen is one I got from B&Q a couple of decades ago, cost about a fiver and replacement cylinders are still available. Never yet caused an oven tray to buckle under the heat from it.

    The Su v gun runs on map gas not butane not really advisable to use on food considering its main use is for soldering. way to lie guys.

    Watching Ben with a flamethrower gave me so much anxiety, but I couldn't not look 🤦‍♀️🤣

  • abertolani

    I'm just gonna say it.. Ben with the flamethrower....🥵

  • RooshiVin

    The coffee brewer is just a nicely packaged Kyoto Drip setup, you can build one yourself pretty easily and it's been around for ages, it's tasty stuff but every kickstarter kit is waaaay expensive.

    What a sad direction this channel has taken in the past several years. I used to watch back around in 2015 and you guys created entertaining content and actually had recipe videos. Thus channel has gone to complete nonsense with every video attempting something buzzfeed has done in a desperate attempt for more views. Any quality or learning about food and cooking is long gone from thus channel.

    I would love to see you guys test a lomi. It's a bin that is supposed to turn food waste into compost. So it gets rid of smelly green bins and for people who don't have green bins.

  • nontrainspotter

    I have the gun, nothing comes close to searing a sous vide steak. If you want to take the guesswork out of perfect Wagyu, this is great.

    How Ben is handling the flame thrower just shows again that he's a chef - so much confidence with a flame that bent the tray !!!

  • Mysterios1989

    I know an interesting gadget that could be reviewed. Tefal Snack Time Sandwich and Waffle Maker. The interesting thing about this machine is that it has switchable irons and a large collection of irons that you can buy so that it works for whatever you need. We use it quite often and it is a handy gadget that the chefs might even like.

  • Sorontur3

    I always wanted a home use flamethrower.

  • Uwe Schroeder
    Uwe Schroeder

    Well, I wouldn't back either of the 3. I don't drink coffee - so no cold brew thingy. I think the cast iron pan is overpriced - nice, but overpriced. I actually found some really old masterfully crafted cast iron pans in a thrift store, rusty and dirty for $3 each and that was the kind that's really thin for cast iron and perfectly smooth, much unlike a cheap Lodge these days. When push comes to shove, I love my cheap carbon steel pans: lighter, still good with holding heat and sturdier than cast iron. For the blow torch: well, I use my welding torch for that when camping (makes a very quick toaster in combination with all metal tongs) and at home I use my 200kBTU wok jet burner outside. The jet burner does more than flame things, I can actually cook on it and it produces perfect stir fries since it brings the carbon steel wok to glowing red in like 30 seconds if need be (plus it was under 50 bucks on Amazon). So no need for an extra flame thrower - it looks like fun though. So if I was forced to pick one, the flamethrower would be it, simply for fun factor but definitely not for price. If saying "none of them" is an option that would be my preference. I generally don't spend money on gadgets nobody needs.

  • Em Be

    218000 BTU seems to be 63,9 kWh, meaning its not a stat of the gun but more likely the amount of energy the contents of the gas container releases on combustion. BTU cant be the power of the gun this would be BTU / sec. Also 218000BTU in this bottle would mean that there are 6,5 m³ of gas in there (under standart conditions (1bar or 100000Pa or 14 Psi and 0°C or whatever it is in °F).

    4 hours for 500 mil ? that is usless. i guess if u put it in the fridge over night but when u want an iced coffee just buy one from one of the 50000 starbucks in ur neighborhood

    When I saw the flamethrower gun I thought, “that’s very American and I love it”

  • Dekoth-OGN

    I would rather fill it with cold water and coffee grounds and filter it tomorrow - Exactly. Perhaps if it was $15 or less but otherwise it is overpriced nonsense. Pre seasoned cast iron - Well I restore old cast iron so you can guess my opinion on factory spray coating. Su V Gun - ...stupid gadget aimed at absolute suckers. Just a grossly overpriced torch just like all other "Kitchen torches". Buy a standard plumbers torch for $15. If you want the wider tip you buy a rosebud torch tip for another $15-$20 and for less than half the cost of this thing you have a torch that will do everything it can do and a bunch of things it can't.

  • ManWithBeard1990

    The price of that cast iron pan is starting to enter the ballpark of a Staub or a Le Creuset. And really, you can't compete with enameled cast iron.

  • 777nussie

    Would love to see them try a Lomi (an advanced home counter composter).

    i do exactly that dutch cold brew device method with a pour over and a fruit/suntea infusing tank. it's easy af and you can modify the method to use a higher temp to bloom before you add the ice drip if you want to do bloomed cold brew.
