You can usually get these for around £10 if you hunt around so this is a cracking price. Handy for when you have a powercut.
Great for making tea while waiting for the tide to come in.
great find, always handy to keep one either for emergencies (power cut) or for camping. Got mine for £10 which was the best price around at the time. Their cans seems to be same price as other place like B&M i.e. 4 for £3.99
Heat added
Does it come with one gas?
I was about to get one from B&M, £2 saved plus petrol and parking, cheers :-)
USB-C?
Anyone know what their tent is like?
so how do you connect gas to these do you attach to a tank?

They sell the gas canisters, 4 for £3.99
You pop the top off the canister, open the side of the stove and place the canister into the slot, close the lid and pull the 'lock' lever down.
This pulls the canister onto a valve, and engages the canister.

Good price.
Australia banned these after several nasty incidents with them. I believe they insist that they now have to have extra safety features. Anyone know how to tell if these ones are 'safer' type?

I have used one of these for the last three years at home as my main cooker. Still using the original unit ( I have another for a backup ). The only thing to be aware of if cooking indoors is to keep the window open for ventilation. One downside, in winter the bottles of gas will only give about 80% use because of the cold. I put these aside for the warmer weather.
Now sold out online. In store from May 25th

Well, sorry but that doesn't answer my question (which I posted for the benefit of anyone considering buying). The fact that you've used yours rather unwisely and got away with it doesn't make it safe!

I've now found this and would urge you to reconsider using your old one:

https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/energy-and-environment/using-electricity-and-gas-safely/portable-gas-cooker-safety

Here are a couple of extracts (relates even to fully approved ones):
- Portable gas stoves should never be used indoors or in confined spaces.
- Do not use pans or pots larger than 200mm (unless specified as safe by the manufacturer) – when the pot is too big,
it concentrates the heat down toward the gas canister, which may cause it to overheat and explode.

The problems seem to be based on the fact that the gas canister is integral and very close to the flame. In certain circumstances the gas cylinder overheats and explodes. You have been warned!

I have two of these which I've never used - I think they're going to remain that way.

I was thinking about buying one of these to cook in the garden using a paella pan. It's lightweight and shallow but quite wide, the base is around 30cm diameter. I'm sure I've seen outdoor caterers etc. use similar portable stoves to heat through / keep warm.

Several examples branded "Adventuridge" are listed on the South Australian safety website but the linked sites refer to products manufactured before 2015 and buyers are encouraged to obtain an updated model. Annoyingly, the ALDI website does not quote an Adventuridge model number....

If the posts above are credible this might be a problem. How good is the evidence or is it all, "I knew this bloke who..." data?
