Re: Alcohol Stove - Non-Pressurized

I have had no problem cooking on our alcohol stove powered with methyl hydrate. Been doing it for five seasons. Use about five gallons per season, at $12-14/gallon (Home Hardware, in the paint section) Flyboy is right, there are slightly hotter fuels, but, as he has pointed out, sometimes you get more heat than you can use- nobody likes to have their buns scorched. I can't speak to the baking aspect, but i can say that for general boiling, frying, sauteing and overall stovetop use, we dig being alkies.
