There are typically two times of the year when most people decide to deep clean their homes, spring and now. With the holidays quickly approaching and many people planning for frequent family gatherings, getting our homes into tip top shape just prior to all of the holiday chaos is beginning to weigh on the minds of most. While the usual household chores such as dusting, vacuuming, and mopping are already on the list, we must not forget about the exterior of our homes.
When we first moved into our house, one of our neighbors warned us about the horridly abundant fallen leaves during this time of the year. What we were unaware of was the fact that the previous owner had allowed a massive amount of these leaves to collect in the backyard thus leaving the ground underneath soft and full of weeds. After doing our best to clean out the yard so that the kids and dog would have a proper space to play, we had to turn our attention to the front yard. The same weeds from the backyard had found their way to the front garden, into the cracks of the driveway, and even began creeping up along our front porch. I absolutely despised it. Not only was the look of it terrible in its own right but, after having spent season after season tending to the backyard, I was just so over the thought of having to waste hours upon hours pulling weeds.
One day while we were outside cleaning up that front garden area, with frustration reaching its peak, the mister jokingly said that we should just burn it all. You see, when previously tending to the backyard, we’d often use the random twigs and such to start a nice little fire (contained, no worries!) to help make the work day more enjoyable. After spending the day chopping wood, pulling weeds, and raking leaves, we’d sit by the fire and cook up some delicious s’mores. This time around, although he only said it out of frustration, it got me to thinking… what if we could just burn the weeds away?
Newsflash – we can! Please allow me to introduce to you BernzOmatic.
We’ve been a fan of BernzOmatic for quite some time now. Between the backyard grill, our living room fireplace, simply lighting the candles around the house, and our summer evenings spent camping, we’ve certainly spent our fair share of time using their wonderful products.
We believe in awakening the innovators in all of us – inspiring a culture of creators who can break boundaries, mark new territory, and go where no flame has burned before. Whether you’re a professional, DIYer, chef, adventurer or artist, BernzOmatic has the right product to tackle the job with a full line of torches, lighters, fuel cylinders, camping gas, and accessories. Our hand torches can be used for everything from soldering pipe and blowing glass, to caramelizing desserts and lighting grills.
Up until now, I’ve only had experience with their lighters and simple torches so I was thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity to try out some of their newer products. Mainly, it was the one that’d save me from those horrid weed-pulling days that excited me the most.
To finally get me off the ground, out of the dirt, and allow me to remove those dirt-covered garden gloves, the lovely folks at BernzOmatic were kind enough to send me one of their JT850 Lawn and Garden Torch.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much of a live saver this particular product is. After spending numerous days full of torn jeans, ripped gloves, blistered hands, aches, and pains, the BernzOmatic JT850 Lawn and Garden Torch finally gives me back the days of enjoyment.
Designed to tackle a variety of outdoor tasks including weed control, repairing blacktop, and lighting grills and fire pits. The Extended-Reach Propane Torch features an adjustable flame control knob and the 36-inch reach allows for use without bending or crouching.
I don’t exactly enjoy yard work but I do enjoy being able to spend time outdoors. However, I am quite particular about wanting to keep our yard looking its best. After spending a weekend tending to the garden, the last thing that I want to see is a weed pop up. After sweeping the front porch, seeing the bits of green rise through the few cracks in the concrete irks me. After preparing a delicious meal for a backyard barbeque, I cannot stand to see the dandelions sprout roots in between the bricks of our patio. It seemed as if I was forever fighting a losing battle so I was delighted to have the opportunity to put this BernzOmatic torch to the test.
The comfort grip handle and lengthy 36-inch span makes it so easy to use because it finally allows one to work in an upright position as opposed to uncomfortably positioning oneself on the ground. The adjustable flame control knob is a wonderfully useful addition as it offers the ability to size the flame in accordance to the application. Having been relatively familiar with a number of various torches, I was glad to see that this one features a solid brass tip. This tip helps to extend the lifetime of the torch by increasing its durability.
All in all, this is a fabulous torch in itself and an absolutely wonderful asset for all of your lawn and garden projects.
In addition to helping with the exterior of our house, BernzOmatic has found a way to warm up the hearts of those indoors as well. To go with the aforementioned JT850 Lawn and Garden Torch I was lucky enough to receive one of the brand’s fabulous TS4000 Trigger-Start Torch Head.
Living here in the northeast, the cooler weather often coincides with cozy nights spent by the fireplace. Of course, prior to being able to enjoy those types of evenings with the family, someone has to start that fire. While many people opt for a simple lighter, I’d prefer to not get so close. That’s where the torch comes in.
Work faster and more efficiently with the versatile Trigger-Start Torch, designed for a wide range of jobs including soldering copper pipes, brazing, and heat treating. The optimized swirl flame burns hot and efficiently for maximum heat output and fast soldering times. An instant on/off trigger makes one-hand ignition quick and easy while a continuous run-lock button allows for extended use.
Whether you’re spending time indoors or outdoors, it is always nice to be able to enjoy a warm fire. However, we must not forget how dangerous they can be. It is not always ideal to light a fire with something such as a lighter considering the proximity. I personally prefer to keep the flame at arm’s length and, thanks to the BernzOmatic TS4000 Trigger-Start Torch Head, I can do exactly that.
I have found that this particular model works wonders for our indoor wood stove fireplace due to the fact that its run-lock button allows for extended use of a constant flame when necessary. Outside of use for nights spent fireside, the mister has found a seemingly endless amount of uses for this particular torch. Be it vehicle repairs, soldering, household maintenances, use during adverse weather conditions, heat treating, yard work, and so much more, this BernzOmatic torch is a must-have item for sure.
With the cold weather now storming in rather quickly and our needs for fire rising accordingly, I am so glad to now have this wonderful pair of torches on hand. Having spent the past few days tending to the yard with the JT850 Lawn and Garden Torch and getting everything in tip top shape for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we are now able to sit back and enjoy a nice family evening by the fireplace with help from the TS4000 Trigger-Start Torch Head.
For fall, for Thanksgiving, for winter, for indoors and out, for today, for tomorrow, and for all year, let BernzOmatic help your flame burn forever bright.
There’s a fire in each of us. Waiting to ignite. We believe in empowering those who’ve found their flame and dare to follow it. Because the ones who do, create bold transformations within themselves and in their environments – redefining the limits of what we can achieve. We believe in our fire and in your fire. It’s time to ignite.
This holiday season, spark your flame and let it burn with BernzOmatic.
