In Micro-Bursting mode the goal is to pulse-heat a short-lived thermal bottle while sampling in between pulses trying to avoid over-heat/combustion... Instead the manufacturer instructed its clients to do it in a long steady continuous manner. Which i suppose works for some people using the genuine version. Mine is reconfigured to benefit from pulsed pre-heating features instead.
You can have quite a decent sampler tool for less than a hundred bucks or so, depending on the butane lighter. Etc.
Right now the optimal configuration i've experienced in terms of aroma/taste relied on a dual-flame torch from Vector, the Apolo model to be exact. As a complement configuration i found "Fatty Mamma" works best... Burst mode is the right thing for me:

Take note the butane-based configuration only needs half a capsule.
About "junk", IMO the problem ain't just the Yokan anyway; It's all dry. Except above.
Good day, have fun!!
