Re: Alcohol stoves in use?

Nothing really new to add except a "me too!".

I started with a Kenyon Homestrand 206 model. I nearly singed an eyebrow off in a flare-up when starting it the first time. (I was new, sue me.)

I decided that I really like cooking with alcohol, but didn't like the pressure aspect, so I retro-fitted an Origo 4000. As everyone previous has said, thick cookware is the key to cooking with fewer BTU's. Cheap, thin "pot metal" just lets the precious heat escape.

I liveaboard, and cook regularly. Everything from grilling, to the Origo, to a microwave oven. The simplicity and safety are what appeal to me the most. I can wait a couple extra minutes for the water to boil.
