    Has anyone used a single gas burner to cook with a wok/ skillet etc ?
    Something with a bit of power, to be used outside using vans gas supply.
    Any advice/recommendations welcome.

    A cheaper option is a 'suitcase stove' which costs under £10 from B&M and runs of cartridges (£4 for 4) and has an output of 2.3kw.

    According to the pdf files the the LP one is 2.68kw max (this is the one that works from a separate cylinder; the HP one is 2.37kw and uses the screw in cartridges).

    I have two that I use outside .. great little stoves..

    However.. I would caution against using one with a wok or frying pan that is bigger than the burner pan support.. (the black part) and overlaps the gas storage compartment.

    there was a report / warning about that .. the heat deflected downwards can overheat the gas cartridge resulting in an explosion..

    someone also reported that due to safety concerns the have been banned in Australia ...

    although I use them have never been totally happy about the gas can being so close to the heat and ignition source

    Hi.
    Time waits for no man.. I have a single ring bitumen/Tar boiler,so yesterday stated to hunt for it,to get the name and power output,found it and wrote down.
    Bullfinch 1380B Propane 37mb butane 28mb. Heat input 2.1 kw 152 gm Outdoor use only. Ready to post on here.
    Just Googled Bullfinch......... You can buy......Foker units DOH.
    Well,i have a good idea of where everything is in the garage again,so the time was not lost,i must say,the Foker kit looks a bit more twentieth century than my old burner,but cooked many a b/fast-dinner on it while away. Happy days.

    CADAC junior ( the smaller one )
    Got it fitted with a Bullfinch quarter turn connector via a hose that plugs straight into the vans gas supply.
    VERY Good.
    Mitch.
    PS. It folds small and comes with a Wok and griddle plates and all sorts in its own carry bag.

    Are you talking about the Cadac Safari Chef? The only smaller one (in height) that I've ever seen is the Cadac Travel Chef which I think works on canisters only.

    Got rid of my Cadac, good riddance :cool:

    £20 cast iron gas ring running off the BBQ point, 5Kw so will do 10 people or just 1
    bought a big-ish Paella pan and and a cheap ikea wok, perfect
    Paella pan is non-stick so XL breakfasts are viable :D

    Washing up is a breeze
    washing a cadac, nightmare:(

    'put you hands up and move away from the Cadac'

    LOL

    or as Churchill might have said... 'Never in the history of human conflict, has so much junk been sold to so many people';)
