A burner?

For what?

Be a lil more specific...

Do you mean an electric pressure cooker???

Don't have a stove, eh? Ask if it can boil water in a pot. If it can, the PC will work. Good luck!

Well I have a stove only its hard to use without everyone in the house knowing. I wanted an electric burner to use in like my room .I think it would get hot to boil water. I only use a small flame on my stove anyways . So it must not need alot of heat!

Single or double burner, propane stove, or camp fire.
Just need a steady source of heat to get the presure up in the PC :)

I just went out and bought a hot plate for my second 22 quart pressure canner (a real nice looking unit - full-sized single burner, slick plastic case), and returned it just a few hours later... As professional as it looked, It could not get either of my canners up to pressure, even after I left it for over an hour!

It is a crying shame that my current range (stove) only has 1 Rapid Heat element, and that none of the hotplates I could find ran off anything but 110v (BTW why would they, no one has 240v outlets in their kitchen, do they) and 110v is not enough to make my canner pressurize.

I am now exploring another idea which is to see if I can talk a used appliance repairman to rig me up a RAPID HEAT,(standard rapid heat elements are approx. 2000 watts) full sized burner (including the converter? or resistor? or rheostat?... whatever it is that regulates the maximum current draw) that I can heatsheild, plug in to 240v (stealing power from my existing range)and put on the counter with a rheostatic switch.

I have thought of gas, but I am leary of the potential for mishap, and am unsure of the heat potential (I thought the hotplate would be plenty hot enough), not to mention I have no idea of the cost of fuel.

If anyone has had any success with either of these methods, Kenny and I would love to hear about them.

I went to walmart and picked up a little two burner camping stove ($30.00)(to set up in my room). This thing boils water like a mother! Each mini prpane tank will last for nine hours and they are only 1.34 when you need a new one.

Hope this helps

Does the propane burning let off any smell ? That would work for me as long as it dont smell that bad.

The camp stove sounds interesting, though I wonder how quickly it will get my PC up to temp. Have you tried it on a 22qt pressure cooker?

Oh, and Kenny, if this is helpful (you probably already know this), If you buy something from a big chain with a department store mentality and save the reciept (it helps if you save the packaging too) they will always refund your money or at worst give you in-store credit. I have, since I began this hobby bought and returned more stuff simply because I changed my mind or broke it experimenting than I feel I have any right to, and they always let me, usually no ??? asked.

Carbon Monoxide is oderless and you can't see it but will kill you dead.
If you use the camp stove inside be sure you have a well vented area.
Also remember to be careful when using an open flame indoors
We want to see you keep posting here :)

Kenny - Just a little and its only until you ignite the flame, then the smell is gone. IMOK is definetly right, I open my window and turn the fan careful. I am in the basement and I just open the little storm window and make sure the fan is on, I am not dead....yet...LOL , j/k.

RYAN- I only use the boiling method of sterilization so I can give you info on that....but "true dat" to exchanging things at the "mart" stores, I am the exact same way.
