    About 2 years ago I became a fan of those little camping cookers that have the little butane bottles.

    Anyway I cant seem to stop buying the bottles.

    They are everywhere. In the garage at home I have about 30 and they are scattered around the van as well. Almost every cupboard you open has a little bottle in it.
    Its become a bit of a standing joke with my wife and the kids.

    Anyone else suffer from this?

    I was until I found that these type of stoves have been banned in Australia so decided to ditch them, not literally.

    Why are they banned?

    Anyway I would still need my bottles for my "weed wand" that is a sort of mini flame thrower for killing weeds.

    I have hours of fun with it(y)

    As long as they are used sensibly and with the correct cooking equipment they are ok. I understand that if they are used with an oversized pan etc that the heat can be deflected down to the gas canister and there have been instances where they have blown up/caught fire.
    As with most portable appliances they have to be used sensibly​

    I had better keep the kids away from the cooker then.

    I use it all the time, but always outside.

    Have two self contained ministoves and have used them successfully for years mostly on low flame with a skillet ideal for cooking outside the van or kettle for picnics out in the car , no problems bottles 4 for £3.99 (B&M)
    As for the Aussies banning them ,don't they do that for most things ?

    :)

    I am glad I saw this - I am down to my last 3 and we are off to France tomorrow for 9 days so have just added to my list of last minute shopping dash must haves.

    We often use one to cook outside the van - including heating water for an early morning brew (when the rest of the family are still sleeping) or cooking supper on the beach. Also good to know that we have a backup in case the main gas supply runs out.

    Perhaps a h&s warning, THIS COOKER MAY GET HOT.
