Sterno deal

My mom spotted this deal at Lewis Drug store. If you have one in your area check out the camping aisle for 2 packs of Sterno canned cooking gel at half price.

The little stove I found on Amazon; it's a Coghlan's.

I can't see it in the photo, but the can is lit and burning with a blue flame here.

This is an excellent option for emergency cooking if you're like me and have an electric stove. I have outdoor options with the grill and my rocket stove (which I'm planning a post on this weekend) but sometimes cooking outside isn't a good choice. The weather could be bad or mosquitoes might be swarming. I also have a propane camping stove, but that isn't recommended for indoors.

If you don't have a Lewis in your area, try to check your local stores just in case. I've found that different stores will often have the same items for sale.

I've never heard of 'cooing gel' do you just light it and then use this as your heat source?/ How effective is it??

can you cook anything on it?
