Kitchen Torch Recommendations, Please

Hi,

My 16-year-old niece has made "perfecting creme brulee" a goal for the new year, so I thought I'd put together a sort of a kit for her birthday. I want to get her a culinary torch, but don't know what kind. The torches that come in pre-assembled creme brulee kits look a bit flimsy (which is why I don't want to just buy one of those). I've noticed some posters here recommend a plumber's torch. Can anyone give me brand names and models of torches known to work well? Safety has to be the primary consideration, over and above power, then ease of use and availability of fuel refills. Any advice or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you.
