Butane burners

hi i live in an area that has no gas line so even though i would love to use as i can, we have a ceramic stove top which i really do not like because it stay hot for 10 minutes after you turn it off which really demonstrates the lack of heat control.

I was wondering if any of you have used those one burner butane stoves
like this one.
they are safe to use indoors and i think would be awsome to use instead of our electric stove.
i was just wondering everyones opinions on them and if you think the 15,000 btu burners is worth the 75$ or if it is better to go with the 10,000 btu for 35$
i'm using copper pots so i won't be going past medium anyway.

if it is an indoor type , it should be okay to use.

Have you considered buying a gas stove fitted for propane use and installing a tank?

I have a pair of these stove types, and yes the are Great! camping or indoors, in fact I used to use one on my kitchen floor in my old apartment for Wok Cooking, the electric hob was just not up to the task.

I can`t tell from that exact picture, but mine are very similar but a little less exposed and have a carry case with them too.

but what I Would check before you commit to buying one is the Fuel can availability!
if it`s Specialised, I woudn`t bother, if it`s a Generally available canister then yeah ;)

just make sure you have plenty fuel cans in reserve, never let yourself go down to just 1 can ;)
