Default trying to light natural coals

can you use a closed electric stove to light ******* hookah natural coals? Tonight I was called an idiot for thinking this was possible, am I that wrong?

In theory anything that produces enough heat should be able to light a coal... are you talking about the glass topped electric stoves? I have never lived in a place with one but its certainly an interesting question... and certainly worth a video taped test!

If you're talking about the stoves with flat ceramic tops, I don't think so. At least not the Energy Star compliant ones. They don't produce constant heat like a coil would. The element fires up then cools down in a regular pattern The coal needs constant, intense heat.

There have been people that have had the tops of those ranges crack on them while lighting coals - just an FYI. Might as well just go to Walgreens and purchase a $10 single coil burner and not risk it.

Apparently you can light natural coals in the microwave in about a minute if you're ballsy enough.

I just saw a video where the guy used a microwave. I think it was he prefered way to lighting them. I don't think it damaged the microwave.
