Butane Stove Indoors

A portable single burner butane stove is an excellent resource for emergency cooking, while on the go, or camping.

Cooking without electricity is something that everyone should consider in case of a power outage or other emergency situations.

There is a wide variety of portable single burner stoves to choose from. They vary from ultralight camp stoves for hiking expeditions to larger stoves with multiple burners.

 

Butane Stove Safer For Indoors

A good choice emergency stove for ordinary cooking that’s safer indoors than others is a single burner butane stove.

Years ago I bought the GAS ONE butane stove and have used it many times. Love it!

Read on for today’s recommendation…

The GAS ONE butane stove served me well (indoors) on vacations, road trips, (even cooking in a hotel room – shhhh…don’t tell anyone 😉 )

   

If I were to buy another one today, I would seriously consider the Iwatani stove which looks to be of really good quality:

Why Butane?

Butane burns cleaner.

Burning butane does not normally produce carbon monoxide.
Complete combustion of butane produces carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor.

Asian families commonly and regularly use the butane stove for cooking in their kitchens. I’ve used my single burner butane stove lots of times indoors without issue whatsoever.

That said, although not likely, ‘incomplete’ combustion of butane will produce some carbon monoxide.

It’s always a good idea to be aware of ventilation in your space, especially if you’re cooking in a very small area. A carbon monoxide detector should be in every home. Why? Because you can’t smell it.

 

Uses for a Butane Stove

– The power goes out. Heat up a nice can of (fill in the blank) for dinner!
– Again, power outage. All night. Hot coffee in the morning! Got a percolator?
– Road trip? Took mine cross country. Served us well!
– Convenient for a camp trip. Not so much for backpack but a camp, yes.
– Simply a emergency backup

Note: My experience with using our butane stove is that it burns hot and fast, and the butane canisters last longer than I originally anticipated. I bought a bunch of spare canisters for just in case. I store them with my other fuel products outside the house in a ventilated shed.

   

Any of you have a single burner butane stove?
