In what way were the (pretty general) comments from Whiteburn and myself not wholly accurate? More important how would someone be likely to get hurt from what we said?


Some years ago I saw a young man invert a canister to a remote stove at the side of his tent which he then lit. The resultant flare set both he and the tent on fire and he was saved serious injury by his companion throwing him in the river.

You didn't clarify that if you are going to invert the canister you should use a remote stove with a pre-heat tube. You further did not clarify that the stove should be lit with the cannister initially upright and wait until the pre-heat tube heats up to allow it to vapourise the fuel before, slowly, inverting the cannister.

I saw potential for a novice user reading your comments and making an error which may have resulted in injury, hence my post.

I don't think Whiteburn posted anything that I would disagree with.

This is a nice one too, but lugging the heap of peats around as well is a pain...

Got the 3inch stove delivered yesterday and it works, had it on for about 2 mins and water was starting to heat. Didnt want to waste to much fuel so switched it off, but happy with it, will do in hills to heat water and still have 2 ring stove in car. :) :D

I too have a fetish about collecting stoves :lol: I use a double burner with grill for the yacht and when 'car camping' Other times I use the Coleman duel fuel which is great if a little bulky for long walks. My favourite stoves are the little solid fuel stove, the one that takes the tablets. It takes up very little room in the rucksack. The other favourite is the meths burner that sits perfectly inside the solid fuel base.
