Default Bad news.

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.

There's always this:

It's what I use when I'm outdoors.

First that sucks
Second if you want to try one more method to amp the heat make a tent with foil
Third go to stop and shop in the kitchen trinket aisle they carry one and its the same price and works like a charm

That 'annoying' gas burner gets my coals ready in under 4 minutes.

Thanks for the replies, so does anyone know the reason why the hot plate sucks? Its an expensive named brand one with 1000 watt power, so it can't just be mine that doesn't work.

Jhawks thanks for the heads up, I never really knew if the hot plate would work or not. Thanks for doing the testing though.

Yeah I hate that I'm the first one to find out they SUCK. Keep the hot plates for the Science experiments not Coco's.

Is it a plate style burner or coil style?

Don't feel bad, you're not the first. I had the same kind of hotplate from walmart, and they only lit the corners of my coals like yours did.

I bought my single coil burner from coconara's website, they're pretty fast at processing orders.


There's also a few others that have tried the GE hot plates and failed, there's a few that succeeded though
