I'm looking for a cheap hand-held propane torch. I have heard that you can find them really cheap (under $10) in hardware stores. Any idea where I could find one in Manhattan?
You can get a creme brulee torch at William Sanoma for $40, a set w/ramekins at Bed Bath and Beyond for $20 but The little local hardware bodegas that I've gone into do not have them and the one larger hardware store I went into in the W Village was selling it for $25, defeating the purpose of cheap. (I'm on the west side but willing to travel.)
