I have no first-hand experience with these units but, when looking some years ago at c-Dorys (I know, I know), read a lot of mixed to quite negative reports on the C-Brats site (The C-Brats :: Home
) about the counter top models. What I remember is that you had to use special fuels (lamp oil or the like), could NOT repair them in the field, and had to have a fair bit of electrical current to start up and perhaps to run. I'd look closely before making the jump.
I'd love to hear back what you find out.
