ISLAND KING® LARGE FLAME TORCH is rated out of 5 by 32.
Rated 2 out of 5 by texasred from some problems I bought 5 of these last year because I wanted something easy to fill, that looked good and that would last. After one year, I can say that two out of three are true. They have started to rust. I bought two of the stainless steel today. They're the same style except the top torch part is stainless. I hope they last for more than one year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gr8lukn from Best ever! Easy to fill & Nice looking It has a larger wick and a body that holds more fuel. There is a rotating cover where you pour in the fuel- sort of like a sprinkle cheese shaker. This makes it easy to empty. It comes with a metal cover attached by a chain to the body. To put the torch out you just put the cover on the top - it is magnetic. The body unscrews from the pole, making it easier to store. We liked it so much we bought 10 of them for a party. Oh, the other feature is that they can stand up to moderate wind - the party was a house overlooking a beach and we had 8 to 10 mph winds - no problem for the torch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbslewin from Beautiful! I received 2 torches and could not be happier with them. The quality is high, the appearance is classy, and assembly was effortless. I will also add that I left them out in a storm by accident. One of my torches fell into 2 large rocks. They are clearly durable as well. No damages was done to the finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shaff01 from great, Well made As you would expect for the company thet pretty much invented the tiki torch this is a great item. A super classy upgrade from the tried and true bamboo torch. one thing worth noting is that they come boxed with a 4 piece pole. I was a bit leary because I have bought torches in the big box stores ( not tiki brand) with screw together poles that had sloppy loose joints. these poles screwed together rock solid. Easy to fill with a large fluid capacity. you won't be disappointed if you buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyHerbs from Awesome Product!!! I received 2 of the Island King Large Flame Torches & they are fantastic! The easy filling is a blessing. No more spilling all over and wasting expensive fuel. No fuel spilled all over my hands. And the large wick flames are awesome for keeping all the bugs away & lighting up our pool & deck area. I would recommend these to all my friends. They are worth the extra money as they will last a lot longer than any bamboo tiki torch on the market. Enjoy your yard again with these new torches from Tiki.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Club33fan from By far the best Tiki torches I've ever used These torches are everything you would want in a top notch high quality torch. The Island king torches provide a much more realistic and fuller torch flame. The oil reservoir holds a large amount of your tiki-oil of choice, so you can enjoy many hours of tiki fire. Unlike most Tiki torches where you have to unscrew the top off the canister and fill through a small opening these torches are extremely easy to refill with oil. The top slides open easily and all you do is pour right through the top of the torch without having to remove anything but the snuffer cap. this gives you a very large opening for filling. No need for funnels or the risk of spilling oil from over filling like in your typical torch canister. This takes all the hassle of filling your torch with oil completely out of the equation. In my opinion, this oil reservoir system needs to be implemented across all Tiki brand torches. They really hit a grand slam with the Island King Tiki Torches in very way. I could not be happier with the performance, look and ambient light provided by these awesome torches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jam901 from Easy to use - Once I figured out the trick. So I bought six of these to ring my pool area as I had been looking for torches that would be easier to use and refill than the traditional torch. These went together very easily and the fill-up procedure is much less messy than the smaller torches. They work great; the flame is huge and they lasted longer than I thought they would - I got about three full nights out of a fill up. My only issue was when I went to refill the torches it was difficult to turn the top to get the opening lined up - the heat seemed to make the top stick. It took a few minutes but I figured out if you press on the oval hole a bit with your thumb the two pieces will pop apart and the top turns freely. Other than that I love how these look at night. I am interested to see how they hold up over time but so far they've been great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jr53222 from Looks great - Love it more than other torches They are beautiful! I absolutely love how they look. They assembled very easily. Filled very easily. I love that the top is a little magnetic so that it stays on better - a great improvement over other torches I have used. I also like that after burning for a while it did not get all sooty! I wish it had something a little sharper on the end for sticking it into the ground but I highly recommend. They will look great in any backyard!!

Hello, I love my tiki torch but hate the fact there is no point at the end to stick the pole into the dirt and they are always leaning. Everytime my gardeners mow the lawn, I have a problem. 2 of my sticks are extremely damaged. Any suggestions?

Are there instructions for changing the wick and how often the wick needs to be replaced?
Hi, Sean - Thanks for your question! We recommend replacing the wick when it isn't long enough to reach the fuel reservoir. Simply pull the old one out and push the new one through the hole with an inch of wick exposed about the flame guard. Then light, and enjoy your torch! We hope this helps.

torches seem to smoke a lot. can the wick be adjusted to correct this
Hi, Garry - thanks for your question. When our torches are used with TIKI Brand BiteFighter or Citronella Scented fuels and they are lit, they will emit some smoke. For dramatically less smoke, we recommend using our Clean Burn torch fuel that significantly reduces smoke. You may find more information on our Clean Burn fuel by clicking here: http://www.tikibrand.com/care/torch-fuel/clean-burn-torch-fuel-2-pack.html Also, please ensure your wick and torch is set up according to our best practices and instructions. When filling your Island King torch, remove wickholder assembly from fuel reservoir. Fill reservoir 2/3 full. Attach wickholder assembly to fuel reservoir. Do not overtighten. Allow wick to become completely saturated with torch fuel before lighting, which takes approximately 5 minutes. Do not set wick height higher than ¾” above the top of the flame guard. We hope this helps. Thanks for being a valued TIKI Brand consumer!

Can the pole be removed?
Hi, Justin – Yes, while the pole on your Island King torch can be removed, per our Safety Guidelines and Regulations, we direct consumers to have the torch head firmly secured to its pole before lighting the torch. We hope this helps!
