Well I had a single coil burner, and it was broken the other day. I have a GE Hot Plate, however, this thing will NOT light my Coco's. I seriously left them on the hot plate for 30 mins, flipping them over and everything, at the highest temperature and I get one little tiny corner red. Is it just not possible to light these on a hot plate? I tried the fan technique and that helped very little, not enough to do justice though. And please don't tell me to go to Walgreen's and buy another single coil burner because I have checked 10 Walgreen's in my surrounding area, and they don't carry the single one anymore. If no one can help, I have 3 boxes of Coco's I'll give away, and a Sahara Large Blue Vase I could sell.
