Re: alcohol stoves/ovens

Sorry to jump in with another subject but can't find another thread to use. Suggest one and I will post there.

My question: Does anyone know about availability of kero in South and Central America and the Caribbean. Its decision time for the next few years of my cooking life.

Thanks, Guys

Hot tip.Keep your kettle half full at all times.Water will douse spirit/alcohol stove rather quickly.Ours is non pressurized and we love it to bits.

Re: alcohol stoves/ovens

I have no problem using my non-pressurized alcohol stove.I probably should be more worried about my deadly 30 year old hunter 34 breaking in half.LOL.
Propane would be nice though.Just not high on the list.

Re: alcohol stoves/ovens

I lived aboard a Yorktown 33 for 4 years with a kerosene pressure stove. When I bought the boat the ceiling was black from failed lighting attempts!

After a month of using it daily it became second nature. The only challenge was if you decided you needed the stove 5 minutes after turning it off, no way it would relight.

Re: alcohol stoves/ovens

QUESTION: Seems many people complain about the smell of alcohol stoves while others claim there's no smell. Is it possible that the "smelly" stoves are of the pressurized type, while the "no smell" stoves are non-pressurized? More specifically, since I'm currently looking at an Origo 3000, is it one of the smelly ones? Thanks!

Why am I always surprised when something actually works?

Re: alcohol stoves/ovens

My Origo does have an odor. Not strong, and generally not as bad as "white gas" and/or kero camping stoves. But it definitely has some smell that propane wouldn't have.

I don't care much, 'cause if I'm cooking the companionway is wide open.
