In my last post, I reported on a pair of new offerings by Sterno. I like the canned fuel for many reasons. Operation is absolutely silent. All you hear is the water bubbling when It finally boils. The fuel burns with a faint blue light – even in the dead of night – it is hard to see. With the stoves listed earlier, all but invisible. I like quiet and invisible. The canned fuel stores very well and quite safely at home or in auto. Easy to light and easy to snuff. Safe for indoor use. It is heavier than alcohol fuel, but that can be viewed more than one way. Now I'll look another set of offering from Sterno – ones that are a bit more…noisy…. A 9,000 BTU single burner stove. Price point is about $25. Safety lock and automatic safety shut off sensor to prevent fires from occurring CSA-Certified You've seen these before – nothing special – it's only that Sterno decided to expand their catering business offerings. Before you buy, check your local restaurant supply outlet, you may find a better deal. These actually are great for home use in the event of a utility outage, the heat output is adjustable, and the canisters are found in nearly every major city. When not in use, they store in a small space – perhaps the back of a cabinet. When needed, pull out, and it is ready to go. This is another small stove, that with minimal training, I would feel comfortable with the grand-kiddos doing the cooking. Butane is heavier than air, so some care is needed when the stove is in use. Bottom line – a small, solid, well built product that can be used to cook anything your regular stove will cook. Fuel is easily had and stores safely. Please note that this product had a safety recall in 2010. (Sterno Recalls Portable Butane Stoves Due to Fire and Burn Hazards) The next is a canister stove now common in many cooking kits. The Sterno 50136 Dynamo Stove Kit. At $43 for this kit – I'm...underwhelmed. The pot is nothing special, the stove, like all canister stoves is very 'tippy' and the stove will have trouble running in even mildly cold temperatures. It really should have a (separate) wind screen. I'm just not a fan of these for many reasons. That said I do own a Jet Boil - mostly because it was a gift. I highlight the product mostly to show that Sterno is expanding their offering past the classic canned fuel setups. I'll be honest, this Coleman single burner cooker, rated at 10K BTU is a far better deal @ just about $30 (with one cylinder) than the Dynamo kit and gives the butane stove a real run for the money due to its smaller size. It is far more stable that the Dynamo stove too boot. So, you do have a lot of choices out there. Take the time to see how any of these will fit your needs and then make the purchase. Hopefully these posts will be of help to folks new to the prepping game. Good luck!
