While the vortex flame was as advertised and everyone really liked the overall look of the Halofire, I was very disappointed with the leftover soot on the glass surrounding the flame. We specifically purchased the Halofire Torch Fuel after reading the recommendations of the manufacturer, but it did not burn "clean" as advertised. There was black smoke while burning, as well as the resultant sooty glass. I now have a lot of clean-up to do on the glass and, frankly, what a pain it's going to be if that happens every time I use the Halofire.
Hi Kris, thanks for leaving such an in depth review we appreciate your feedback! Use our NO SMOKE fuel for the clean, sootless and smokeless burn. As we point out on the website, our Citronella Oil fuel does leave some soot on the glass, but its easy to wipe off. Thank you!
Still waiting on it.
I really enjoy this table torch. It creates nice ambiance. My friends and family continuously ask where I got it. When I need new tikis this will be what I go with.
The torch is mesmerizing to watch, and added bonus, we burn citronella torch oil for the mosquitoes.
