Spend just a little bit more, and get a real burner.

We just built one, with a friend starting out, from plans we Googled, cost for parts was less than $50 for the whole paint can forge including making burner. Use cat litter plain clay crushed and mixed with a little water to line the can. Works pretty good for basic forging. She will be making couple of small knives and some other small metal art stuff.

If you're insistent on buying a torch, the Bernzomatic TS-4000 is a great torch.
