Re: My New Stove
I know you can light your coals inside a cheap frying pan, but I would caution against directly on the glass stove top. There has been another similar discussion about this type of stove. Most of the "newer" types should be able to handle the heat, I've heard the older ones may be iffy and shatter.
A cheap coil stove is only like $10-12, portable and easier to clean. Well worth the small amount (and will pay back) you put into it.
If you use QL's, a cheap 3 torch lighter will do - naturals, you'll need a stove top/propane torch (Benzo).
