    Yes but you need to watch it like a hawk. It just toasts all of a sudden.
    As in "oh thats ok for now , Ill just fill the kettle up , arghhhhhhh"
    Beeep Beeeep Beeep frantic wafting of the tea towel over the smoke alarm.........

    We used to use one of the toasters in the OP when tent camping in the 1980s and it worked pretty well. That was on little Camping Gaz stoves. We bought another when we first got a van but it didn't work as well. I don't really know why but could it be that butane burns a bit hotter than propane?

    We've found the mesh type such as This One tend to give the best results.

    I recently bought one of these...... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gelert-Camping-Toaster-With-Folding-Handle-/190826661305?pt=UK_SportingGoods_Camping_CookingSupplies_ET&hash=item2c6e27c5b9

    It works very well (again a bit fast!). I researched this subject in detail (sad I know!) and the Gelert generally had good reports by most users. Check out the user reviews on Amazon for these types of toasters.

    Grasscutter's got the right idea. For me camping has to be only a minor step down from home comforts. Low watt toaster and EHU, failing that there's always the grill.

    We're always shoving bread under the grill in our van. Not to toast (it's less than useless at that) - we use it as the bread bin! :Rofl1:

    Shows how little I know about it :BigGrin: Obviously reading the wrong articles :BigGrin: Just for interest sake I just Googled it and some results say butane burns hotter whilst others say propane burns hotter :BigGrin:

    Toaster when I have EHU. Blow torch when I don't :Rofl1:

    The Blowtorch is by far the fastest way to make perfect toast though.

    My gran used to toast on the open fire with a toasting fork and it tasted smashing and still does when toasted on an open fire,when permitted. I have a fork in the van for this when fires are allowed and also used for cooking.

    Also we have this Camp-a-toast toaster and its quick but easier to manage.

    I had my first go with my new Gelert folding toast maker this weekend, following the Toast thread the other week.

    Each side was done in literally 20 seconds, and the end product wasn't bad at all. Mmmm toast.


    Alternatively, you could always go for Powdered Toast...

    Hi Graham it's just one of those things I know :Wink: but I think it was Jim (scotjimland) that once post a chart about it :BigGrin: Not much in it though,we are talking 1 degree or so ---I think thats why some people use Butane in summer (more in a bottle for your money) and the propane in winter simply because it gasses off at a lot lower temp -- me I am on Propane all yr round simply because its a lot cheaper to fill your (own) bottles :BigGrin: particulary on my size -under £5 to fill as to £15 ish to swop out :Eeek:
