At the second tailgate outing I placed it on a small aluminum table about 16" x 16" by 16" high and cooked on it for over 30 minutes using a 12" fry pan. When the food was done, I fortunately cut off the flame and began serving from the pan still sitting on the burner. Suddenly the butane tank exploded (no flame) blowing the grill into many pieces and the tank into two pieces. The exploding tank shot out of the grill hitting my knee and eventually landed 30' away. Some of the grill parts were found over 100' away. Within several seconds after the shock of the explosion we realized a lady a few feet behind me had been hit in the face/head by one of the exploding parts. Fortunately she was wearing sun glasses. The part grazed her cheek, made a vertical scratch across her glasses lens and made a 3" long cut to her forehead and scalp. The sunglasses saved her eye. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital for X-rays and stitches. The city and campus police, plus the fire marshal investigated for over an hour. After reading the operating instructions and examining the damaged parts, the fire marshal determined that I had operated the grill properly per the instructions and had done nothing wrong. He bagged up the parts and said that he would be filing a report on the manufacturer.
The lady that was injured considered legal action but was very grateful no one else was injured and left it at that. I imagine bringing legal action against a product made in China would be difficult.
It was a very shocking event for everyone. There were a dozens of people within range of the explosion and four people standing within 5' at the time. Amazingly and luckily no one else was injured. My knee/shin had a nasty bruise, shaped like the round end of the canister, for 10 days. Amazon refunded my money on the grill and gave me a gift credit. It still didn't take away the anguish that my grill hurt someone else and could easily have caused serious injuries or worse, to others around me. If you buy this product use at your own risk and don't subject others to injury. I also have 6 full butane tanks I don't know what to do with.
These units are pretty simple and there is not much technological advantage over others, but you can tell it is built well and will last if taken care of (wiping it off when you use it and storing it in a indoor, out of weather environment.
TIP FOR BOTTLE PURCHASE (NO NEED TO BUY GASONE BRAND FROM ONLINE, there are choices available locally in most major metropolitan cities)
*It seems that many reviewers were having trouble finding the butane bottles. The tip is that many Asian markets (e.g. 99 Ranch: [...], H-Mart:[...]:[...] including Korean, Japanese, and Chinese markets all sell generic brands of butane bottles. You just have to find the write type of bottles which the instructions manual specify as DOT-2P or DOT-2Q 8 oz bottles. Here in California as of May 30, 2011, it cost $1.09 per bottle which is cheaper than anything that amazon sells. Asians typically use these butane stoves not for camping but for hot pot (boiling raw foods at the dinner table) or for cooking meat.
1) Remove unit from plastic hard case
2) Turn burner top over and place on top of base
3) Open fuel storage cover
4) Insert fuel canister (we used GasOne Butane Fuel Canister (12 Pack)) so stove sensor stud fits in "collar notch" (easier than it sounds, see my pictures in "Customer Images)
5) Press down the "Lock" lever
6) To turn on the stove, turn the temperature dial all the way counter-clockwise and it will self ignite
+ Good Quality; mostly metal construction
+ Lightweight; weighs only a few pounds
+ Easy Setup; literally took less than a minute from opening the case to when I ignited the burner
+ Hot; the butane seems to burn much hotter than the Sterno heaters I used in the past
+ Sturdy; once setup, different sized pots and pans will fit onto the graduated burner top
- Case is a little flimsy, but it is functional
We like this so much that I will likely pick up another one for camping use.
The same type stove I purchased locally has a much higher build quality that also has a bottom to it.
I uploaded some photos that clearly show what I received is not what's shown on Amazon's product page.
The stove was returned to Amazon for a replacement. The replacement was to be as advertized by Amazon. The replacement was again the wrong item. Back to Amazon it goes.
