Recommendation for a torch for creme brulee?

My mom raved about her first taste of creme brulee while we were at Disney, and had it for dessert every possible chance she got. She brought it up again at Thanksgiving, so I'm thinking of buying her a torch and ramekins for Christmas so she can make her own. I'm finding good and bad reviews, so I was wondering if anyone here had a recommendation?

I have a butane torch made by Dean Jacobs. I got it at a gourmet food store. I love it. The torch is very easy to fill with the butane you get for cig lighters. One important feature to look for is a continuous flame feature. Mine has both on/off and cont. flame, very important if you have a lot of flaming to do.
Great gift idea.

Williams Sonoma has a torch which has gotten high reviews. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produ...cm_ite=default

It's trial and error for a bit, but it's really fun and the dessert presents well.
