Default Single coil burner

Im currently using an electric stove to heat up my coals (coconaras/cocobricos) which takes a fair bit of time, i heard single coil burners are the way to go

I haven't come across many of these in the UK (I heard they sell at %10 or something at walmart!) but would something like this do the job?

Yes they are the way to go, but I cant see if that is the correct one or not because of that pan on it.

blew up!! damn.. yea its imported from the US. it does say at the bottom there

PLEASE NOTE: This item has been built to U.S. electronics specifications and may need additional modifications or converters to be used in countries other than the U.S. and Canada.

but it got good reviews.. patel test it out and let me know if it doesnt blow up

Brutus they might be able to ship to Denmark but might be a bit pricey

i've bought electronics and stuff from the US in the past and i've never had any problems with them before, it might be that English ones are constructed in a similar fashion to the American ones?

Yeah but you're in the US Matt, the voltage wouldn't affect you in any way... i'm tempted to give these a go though... at 20 i don't have tooo much to lose, i jus don't want it blowing up in my face lol

I'm from Manchester. All I did was put 2 coconaras on the burner and next thing I know there's White sparks in the room and loud noise. Switched it off and the hot ring had cracked and had a big hole In it

Yep but not worth the money imo, i can wait a extra 4 mins longer on the stove if i save 40

I heard theys shops that sell pots and pans that have it near my house, if they do i will let you guys know

It wasn't a cheap burner I bought it from Nazar hookah it was do to the high voltage we have compared to the US. If you saw those sparks and you heard that noise you would never go near one. It was some scary shit

yea i saw that one on nazarhookah, it pretty much looked exactly the same as the one on the link so i think i'll give it a miss

Reason why i would want to get one is because it's more convenient for me to keep it in my room, not so much the length of time to heat the coal up.. but let me/us know if you do find them patel

that work great but a decent option for those in the UK are the camp stoves that run on propane, not as good but a decent option

I don't see what the difference between using an electric coil and an electric stove would be. If anything, I'd think lighting on an electric stove would be a lot easier than having to mess with having a coil sitting out on your counter all the time like I do. The electric coils are pretty cheap.

Maybe you can get a transformer or something to change the voltage input into the device
