Spotted these in the ASDA Living store in Peterborough. They had a fair few of them on the shelves. No idea if national though i'm afraid.

However, seems a great buy for £4

This will be national but dependent on stock. My store sold out of these quite some time ago.

Will go to Milton Keynes store at lunch today for a look (unless anyone knows that the MK branch is out of stock). We bought the same type of thing at Morrisons a few weeks ago for a fiver so this is even better.

Good stoves but check the plastic case before you buy it as.the plastic breaks easily and seen loads on shelves broken last time I got one.

how do you refill these? as in where would I get the gas from?

... where would I get the gas from?



It's usually extracted from the ground

Small gas canisters that are available from all hardware stores. I buy mine from local market at £1 each so cheap to run.

ASDA sell the 'official' gas canisters for these but any small can of gas will do.

Please be careful. I met a guy in hospital covered in bandages, one of these blew up in his face. I would always go for something from a trusted brand when dealing with pressurized explosive gases!

There's been a couple of similar incidents mentioned on the camping forums. General advice is to buy good quality gas cartridges -cheaper ones can split/puncture when you put them in. Don't use a large pan otherwise the heat from the flame/pan can start to heat the gas cartridge.....

Fracking !

Ta, got one today - it says use "Summit 090/235" cannisters, which seem to be available on amazon, robertdyas and similar at go outdoors.

Bought one canister from The Range to try it - works fine £1.99. Says upto "90 hours" use, otherwise if you have a card for Go Outdoors, they have 8 for £10 (£6.99 or 2 x4 for £10).
