    Name sais it all. Yes, I planned to use another lighter eventually, but could not believe how quick my three bic lighters were used up. This device uses a hefty amount of fuel, so much so that using bics is not practical in the least.

    I was thinking one of those jet lighters, that spit out the blue flame? Does the blue flame deposit soot in the ceramic filter as well?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you

    Blue flame is good. Stay away from torches that produce other colors. The blue is just the hottest part of the flame. No true torch lighter will leave soot. It'll burn all the carbon. The problem with using a torch on the Genie is the higher temp of the flame. You have to be a lot more careful-keep the flame further away from the bowl to avoid burning the bud or the Genie.
