OK, Mimsy, I think you have probably gotten a lot of feedback here. I do have to say, at the risk of offending a few people, that anyone who is hurt or burned by a non-pressurized alchohol stove like an Origo
, I would hate to be anchored anywhere near them if they try to use a PROPANE
My six year old granddaughter can read the instructions and safely fill the cannisters on the Origo!! You tip the canister a bit and fill it and when it starts to overflow you stop! No problem! EVER!
I was a safety
consultant in my former life and the Origo
is MUCH safer than a propane
stove!!!!! Like anything a propane stove is safe if installed and used safely. In the hands of some people, of course, it is a bomb waiting to go off.
I know that I am an old fuddy-duddy now, still using alcohol, still having paper charts
onboard and actually using them instead of calling the Coast Guard because I'm lost
when the chartplotter
fails, etc. Point is there is no reason you have to have propane just because many people do now.
