Place the burner on a gravel or non-flammable surface.
Light the wicks.
Place the stove-top over the burner. The top of the can will heat up quickly, and make a great cooking surface for anything fried, like a grilled cheese sandwich, or an egg. You can also place a small pot or frying pan on the stove top. If you cook directly on the stove top, don’t forget to grease the cooking surface.
