It's a fun gizmo to have, but it's not as life changing as, say, a basic cast iron skillet that you can sear with.

This has been pretty good for my use case.
  1. Towel Dry 1.5-2.0" steak
  2. Heavily Season Steak w/ Salt + Pepper
  3. Develop Crust on Steak with Searzall.
  4. Throw in Toaster Oven preheated at 500f for 8 minutes
  5. Smother in hot melted browned garlic butter over steak
  6. Rest steak for 5 minutes
  7. Post on Instagram/SnapChat
  8. Serve medium rare.
  9. enjoy jealousy responses on instagram.

I don't have the searzall (not compatible with my torch), but for some reazon I got better searing results and I find it easier with my torch vs a cast iron skillet.

I also don't have to open my windows and fan out my house from smoke after my fire alarm goes off with a torch Smilie

There's a slight issue with torches in that it has a specific torch taste. It's really notable in "American" sushi in that it's kind of artificially ashy when they sear salmon. Still noticeable in steak, but less so. The Searzall is admittedly less powerful because it's purposely done this way to spread the heat.

A good alternative is a Thermablaster 15,000 BTU Infrared Heater on eBay.

It's an nice addition after you get the usual cast iron/sous vide/pressure cooker/baking steel. There are some things you just can't replicate without a torch, like crisping fish skin and carmelizing sugar.

Yea, with torches you have to sear with the outer flame to prevent/limit that odd taste.
