Re: Propane vs Origo

Hello all, especially ORIGO users
Looking for alcohol stoves at Google I found this vid - I think it will be interesting for all ORIGO users:



The most interesting part starts at 2:35. I wonder if the manufacturer could sell those lids separately as an improvement to already sold ORIGO stoves...

regards

Jack

Re: Propane vs Origo

Just wish to cast a vote without getting into the fray,
Propane yes, alcohol/kerosene no

Re: Propane vs Origo

Jack, I want a set of those snap caps for my Origo stove also.
I just sent a note to Dometic to see if I can buy them for my store.

Dometic is making also non-marine stoves for GAIA project -a clean cooking stove for developing countries.
