      Glad to hear it, Alison!

      You'll need to 'run it in' before using it when you're away in your 'van, it smells a bit the first couple of times you use it until all the 'finish' is burned away.

        Yes it does need running in doesn't it But its looking good and certainly belts the heat out for a while after turning the gas off.

            There's a seller on Ebay selling these again (26/03/11), in case anyone wanted one! They fit on most cookers, not just the little suitcase stoves.

            http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-OUTDOOR-CO...item4cf5a0cdf5

            Here's a link to the review I did on the one I bought!

              Thanks jayjay, I got one, your review sold me on it!

              Although the auction is over, the seller has a bricks & mortar shop and the heaters can be bought directly from here.

              They have some other interesting items too.

                Just looked at these on the website and it says 'for outdoor use only'. Is this not the one?

                  Looks identical to the one I have, Dolly! I think the little suitcase cookers are 'outdoor use only', so maybe that's it. When these were on sale last year it said that they were ok for caravans and MH's, it's actually just a posh tin can that fits over a naked flame and difuses the heat. Good for taking the chill off when you have no EHu, but can't be left on all night.

                  Another thing I noticed on that web site is that the heater bit is sitting on a suitcase cooker which has the pan stand upside down and not the right way up... that is worrying, as there was a warning never to do this with a suitcase cooker as there's a chance it will explode!

                    More of the same!

                    more of the little cooker top heaters for sale again, just in case anyone want one.

                    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-OUTDOO...30538470901%26

                    Don't forget you can't leave them on for a long time, or overnight. but fine for a quick warm up when not on EHU!

                      The thing you must consider is the ventilation requirements.
                      When you buy any stove it should be CE marked and come with instructions, one of the requirements is for it to state its ventilation requirements, many of the cheaper stoves dont.
                      The Sunngas Uno portable stove I have has a requirement of 5m cubed per hour, it would be wrong to assume they are all the same, whilst these are a little more expensive it has auto shut off if the gas pressure gets too high ( usually caused by using a pan thats too big) and good stable non slip rubber feet, many of the cheaper ones we looked at dont so I felt it was worth the extra few pounds it cost.

                          The others are back on sale again, this seller has four if anyone needs one. Hefty price, compared to the one above!

                            Guys, if you must use any of these items please get yourself a good carbon monoxide alarm. I know I come across as a bit of a Boy Scout on gas issues but ALL the deaths reported in the gas industry last year were directly attributable to open flued and fluless appliances. To burn gas safely it needs lots of air. This type of gas appliances uses the air in the room that we need to breath. If you think about one bucket full of gas, you need thirteen buckets full of air to burn that gas. If the flame cannot get enough fresh air it will burn off one oxygen atom from a molecule off harmless carbon dioxide, leaving one molecule of carbon monoxide. If you do this a few times, you will die. One part of carbon monoxide in one thousand parts of air will render you unconscious in about five minuets in fifteen minutes you will have permanent brain damage, in half an hour you will be dead.
                            In any enclosed space keep a window open at least, better still a window and a roof vent, best of all put a jumper on.

                              I agree with Stu on this and there were warnings on a thread a few months back. I too am shocked by the needless deaths caused by seemingly innocent things like this and burnt out barbeques used to heat a tent etc. There is a reason they say it is for outside use only.
                              The cooker installation is not designed for this use and I imagine your insurance would be invalid if you had a fire.
                              You will be generating condensation in the camper which you will need to get rid of.
                              Some Romahomes that don't have heat shields are at risk of the GRP walls being damaged by the heat and Romahome warn about this.
                              I find that just making a cup of tea warms up the camper considerably and the tea warms me from the inside.
