At the risk of high jacking the thread
pressure kerosene stoves work just fine for some folks. They take a bit of getting used to and most of the complaints listed here are through operator error.
We have them on both boats, they work as well or better than propane
is safe and cheap
and available, they are simple and can be almost infinitely repaired. And they can't blow up.
Some folks seem to be very sensitive to the aroma, but we are sufficiently steeped in it that we find it homey, and it does keep unwanted guest s out. If they are particularly hard to get rid of I just start the stove a little cold and the one foot yellow flame has 'em gone in no time.
