Default Using a portable butane stove?

Hey everyone,
Hope you're all doing well. I'm sick of buying those single coil burners twice a year. They burn out on me eventually and I have to replace them. Yes theyre cheap from Walgreens but I just want something that works with better longevitity. What I liked about the coil burner from Walgreens (same one by fantasia I believe) is that it lit my cocos in about 10 min.
I dont have experience with the butane, so I wanted to ask the experts here about your experience with butane burners. Does it last much longer than the coil burners, aside from refilling the fuel? How long does it take to get my cocos lit? 2-3 coals.
Please advise, thanks!



PS I'm looking to a buy a product similar to this

Save your money. Head over to Wally World and pick up a Coleman Camp stove.



Throw in a cheap cake rack...


and you'll have a setup that will last years. Even with daily use.

Thanks for the suggestion! Is that safe to use indoors?

I turn my burner to the medium setting and place 2 sometimes 3 coals on the coils for about 10-15 min max, and then shut it off promptly. I use it twice daily. This year, I started putting a *** of water on top towards the side as well, thinking it will help extract the extra heat from the coils and help preserve them. Still didnt do much...

[EDIT]
Three-letter Censored word is the word for a cooking container in which you boil water in - pee oh tea lol I guess stuff relating to the green stuff is censored to keep it legal

Oh no. I ain't fallin' for that again.

My bank account's still recovering from all that 'fancy ketchup' you made me to get.
