QUESTION This stove takes BU5 or BU6 canisters which are described as Wasserstrom #580003--0 results come up when I search for this code or Iwatani butane canisters. Has anyone found them on the site as I would like to purchase them with the stove.
ANSWER Sorry due to Fed-Ex being unable to ship hazardous material to home addresses we are unable to sell the butane on our site. If you call 1(866)-634-8927 someone help you in obtaining the butane for this stove.

QUESTION What is the maximum weight that this unit can handle? Also how long does the fuel last at maximum power--in one place it says 55 minutes and in another it says 8-10 hours.
ANSWER When the stove is set on its highest setting the fuel will last only 55 minutes. When set at low the fuel can last about 8-10 hours. As for the weight. This stove doesn't state what it can't handle. I would only recommend using normal size pans for this unit.

QUESTION If I were to buy your product, can I buy canister butane at a retail store in town?

I bought this to melt lead for casting and it works great. The stove is well made yet light weight and easy to use. My only complaints are that the plastic case it comes is poorly made and the cooking grate is angled which makes using smaller based pots more difficult. Still, I would buy another one.

I search the internet for a quality stainless steel portable butane canister stove that is made in Japan for couple days, then I found the brand Iwatani Cassette-feu 15,000 btu burner. There is alot of generic brand in the internet with different name but same style of stove, they all look alike and probably is made at the same factory in Korea or China, but with different name sticker on the stove. The Iwantani is really different from the rest, I did alot of reading before making my purchase. The stove have a magnetic device that holds the butane canister in place, so you don't even have to push any external leverage to hold the butane canister like so many generic brands. The body is very clean looking with wind guard to keep the flame/heat in place to cook up a meal faster. The body look like it's made of stainless steel, but the butane canister cover look like it's made of aluminum. The fit and finish is excellent (thats why I prefer made in Japan) compared to other portable butane canister stove. This stove is going to last a lifetime, I don't have to worry about it rusting. 15,000 btu portable butane canister stove is hard to find, so I'm glad to buy this stove. If 15,000 btu is too high to cook certain food, then I can always turn the dial down to a low simmer. This stove will be used for emergency purpose like a storm and power outage, or when gas stove is required to cook certain food. [...]I will definately buy again from this company. [...]

I purchased this as a backup in case of power failure. Initially, I was nervous about purchasing a Butane Stove since I've never used one. After thorough research, I discovered that this particular model from Iwatani was the best for a first time user such as I.
It comes in a black, hard plastic case.
The stove itself is light in weight without feeling flimsy.
The instruction manual is very thorough.
I would only recommend using the Iwatani High Power Butane Fuel Can with this stove.
Though the price was a bit on the high side, the automatic safety stop - which automatically disconnects the butane can when the gas pressure increases abnormally-makes it all worth it. Better safe than sorry, right?
Also, if you will use this indoors, make sure the room you use it in is fully ventilated.

This makes it possible for us to enjoy cooking with our cast iron wok in an all electric home, in the kitchen and on the patio.
By: Cully From: San Mateo, CA Date: Aug 23, 2011
I use the stove (I have two) for back yard BBQ's to heat and keep warm large pots of side dishes. This thing works great. It brings a large pot to a boil in a short time and maintains the tempreture for a long time. A single canister lasted for over 2 hours on a low setting after bringing the pot to a boil. The only challenge is visually inspecting the flame in sunlight is very difficult. Heavy stainless steel construction, solid, easy to operate and works like a champ.
Primary Use: Personal/Home
By: Hynzo From: Maryland Date: Aug 23, 2011
I bought this for camp cooking. It works great with skillet, pot and kettle. With the gas wide open, a gas canister will last just under an hour. I have also used this for cooking/warming grill side on my deck. Again a homerun with ease and quality.
