My weed wand is a serious piece of kit: lending me a certain air of authority when blasting weeds at several hundred degrees on my front driveway of a weekend. The idea is that you kill the weeds with heat rather than using weedkillers: all very sensible, particularly when dealing with paving areas, although I am not so sure how green the non-recyclable gas cylinders are. The weed wand can also double as a cook's blowtorch for getting the sugar on top of creme brulee, as pictured tonight while preparing dinner. Probably best done outside, though. (The creme brulee, by the way, was delicious).
