Default My New Stove

Well I am moving into my new apartment and the stove is one of those electric stoves minus the coils. It has like a glass flat top and it shows where to put the pans and such. Will take away from coal lighting abilities? Will I have to buy a coal lighter? I would appreciate if anyone can disperse their knowledge all over this topic .

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).

lol, it's funny you ask this. I just finished making a thread on this a couple of weeks ago because I was in your same position. Go to your local walmart or CVS and by a portable stove. I bought one at Navarro for $12 and it works perfect. It's small, lightweight, and effecient at what it does. You can also look online for some different variety.

Normally I would just use some quicklights but I want to try the Coco Nara Coals you did that review on. In that case I would need a coil stove . Should I go with an electric one or a butane one?

If you have an outlet near by, get an electric. With butane, you're gonna have to keep on refilling it ever so often. Which would be a pain, because it's more money in the long run, and you have to go out any buy the butane. Just get electric, it's much easier...

The cost would be debatable. With electric, the cost gets hidden in your electric bill.

My $12 Coleman stove uses three dollar gas bottles. Even with daily use, one bottle lasts me almost a month.

Not too sure, but I've been hearing lots of bad things about coals and glass tops. I've heard the glass has cracked or something, but don't quote me on that :P All I know for sure is that its gonna mess up your stop top permanently if it gets too hot :\

Yeh I like to go camping my house is in the foothills of these mountains and I take the Toyota up into the mountains and camp out so, that being said, I might go for a butane one .

You would still waste more money on the butane one, for the simple reason, that you have to go out (to a store) and waste gas in order to get a bottle. The waste of gas combined with the price of the bottles wil undoubtely be more than if you just plug it in for 2 or 3 minutes to an outlet. Besides that, I just find it much more easier and convenient to stay at home and just plug it in. If I had to go out of my way ever so often to go buy refill bottles, I think I'd just use quicklights instead...

There are electric coil portable ovens that go for pretty cheap, better then the gas ones. Also the consumption of electricity is very slight. Maybe a few bucks extra if that.
I wouldn't use the glass top if I were you, especially if it is an apartment; don't want the coal ruining the glass some how and it come out of your pocket.

Yeh, there is no way I am going to risk it on the glass top stove. For one, the stove looks really pretty and I don't want to mess it up. Two, I want my deposit back if I decide to move out . As for three, I can stay in my room and light coals .

Yeah, dude I think shelling out almost a grand for a oven because you want to smoke is a little retarded. So yeah portable cheapy is the best bet. :P

Yeah but the cans of gas add up, and the electrity consumption is far less then what you pay for a can. I dunno, it might be different in the US, just cans of compressed gas get pricey.

exactly. mahir from nazar hookah is selling a premium single coil stove that you plug in. boomhauer brought his over to my house and i fell in love with it. i have my own coming to me in the mail (maybe here today or tomorrow).

dont bother buying a butane stove or going to wal mart or whatever. just go to nazarhookah.com and buy the stove on there, you wont be disappointed. and if youre worrying about not getting your package for a while, dont worry because mahir tends to be VERY fast with sending out packages.

i've heard that the glass top will get damaged. I used to use a camping stove with the propane tanks to light my coals, i used that for a couple years but now i use a portable coil stove and I'm not going back, it lights naturals and my precious coco naras very quickly and efficently...that's what i would recommend
