Check your local Asda for the canisters, I picked up a pack of 4 for the price of 1, I think they forgot to open the multi-pack, went through as the single barcode was on the outer wrapper, shelf full of them couple of weeks ago at Asda Milton Dundee.

They are doing the canisters for £1 too LINK
Good price for these - equal to Go Outdoors when they have a sale on.
I have just reserved to collect in store, plus a few extras woohoo
the gas is only reserve and collect
How long does a gas canistor last on average in one of these things?
Thanks! grabbed some sleeping bags for a fiver too!
zaft

How long does a gas canistor last on average in one of these things?



The canisters are supposed to last just over an hour,
Last weekend, I used one canister to cook breakfast + hot drink and evening meal + hot drink.
and soup on both days for my flask. There is still life left in that one canister.

But these were simple meals and the cooking times were no more than 10mins each.

I would recommend erecting some sort of windshield for the stove, I used a bit of cardboard.
Cracking little stoves. Lived off one while refitting my kitchen.

The lounge is not the place to cook a stir fry, however!

handy little burners, used one for years before upgrading.
Great spot.

This & £50 worth of gear on reserve & collect.

Don't forget TCB as well.
Hot ta op
Ordered a number of thinkgs in the end, good prices too!!

HOT, HOT, HOT
Good cookers these, far better than the usual upright ones as they don't fall over. Auto ignition works a treat too!
Thank you,
Thought I'd missed out on Homebase reductions as local store had nothing, but have picked up everything I was after now (and a few extras!) for £57 - 13 items!
Lovely, Swansea just called to say everything sold out already...seems they waited before dealing with reserving what people had reserved! Oh well!
Thanks just reserved one and a few gas bottles
A BIG THANK YOU Jackboy... ordered mine for collection tomorrow,keep up with the good work :):):)
reserved 1 cooker and three gas canisters and 10 minutes later i get a phone call saying we dont have any in stock

If they only have stock whats on the shelf, when reserving your hoping that your order will be picked by a member of staff before a customer picks product(s) off the shelf, not sure about now, but reserve & collect orders used to be picked during the night, meaning your 'reserved' items are sitting on a shelf available for sale until closing time......


Asda had portable gas cookers like this instore today(not sure what make) for £4.Didn't say reduced just were labelled at £4.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW thats a a steal! i got the same 1 from wilkos for £8! i need the gas tho. best for festies!
I've had one of these for about 2 years, I soon dumped it for a Coleman petrol stove because the gas doesn't last very long, it's useless in any kind wind and the heat output is very low. The Coleman on the other hand is a beast!

A member of staff would check on the reserve and collect part of the system to see if any new reserve and collects have been created, this is done regularly during the day and the paperwork is printed out and given to the departments inwhich they collect the items off the shelf soon as they can, then the items are put in the reserve and collect bay

B&Q's reservation system is a total waste of time. I tried it twice, both times the items were in stock but I'd get a call saying the items were sold out the next morning. Since then I've bought nothing from them and never will, amateurs.

Amended that for you to be more realistic.



Just been to my local store in Aintree and their was about 10 stoves left on the shelf
I was surprised at the gas as thought it was £1 per can but was £1 for 4 cans as ordered what I thought was 5 cans for collection so now will last longer web camping
same thing happened to me, received call today morning, saying all items i reserved are OOS, decided to go instore....guess what... found most of items i reserved instore...just dont understand how they work their R & C!
