Hi, I live in a shed, mostly made of disassembled pallets and skippings. It's lined but no insulation (yet - unless you count the rows of books on the inside!), old gas cylinder wood burner with hot plate, & windows!
So far I have been managing with outdoor fire or tiny cylinder camping gaz burner. I want to do something more substantial, reliable, convenient. I would happily make a wood burning rocket cook stove outside but I don't think my shed is upto anything inside. So i need a gas burner inside so I can boil a kettle asap even when its dark, teaming with rain etc..
I am rubbish at making decisions and fret about doing it all wrong so I'm hoping you'll all throw in your opinions
not butane - it def gets below 5C here and I think I'm not going to be keeping the stove going just so the gas um works/gases
are easy to get nearby but small cannisters are a pain to get from a shop and don't last so well & not re-usable container.
The question :
So should I get a camping lightweight thing that would suffice but definitely be appropriate or should I get a cast iron burner like this ? but it's rated at 4.5 kW for the one 4" ring and that's the smallest i can find of this sort of build. Its about 10" square . I really have no idea if this is just tooo big ? Any help please. Has anyone tried these? Can you have a ring that is too hot? but its got a tap for the gas why can't I just keep it low ? aggh !!! Please help!!(yes I am one of those folks who lies awake at night stressing about stupid things
