"MacGyver Style" Stove From a Hot Glue Gun


Introduction: "MacGyver Style" Stove From a Hot Glue Gun

About: I love sports and helping people make stuff! I love to make awesome simple projects everyday!

      Have you ever been in a situation where your stove stopped working? Well, here is a solution to that, the MacGyver stove! To make this "MacGyver" stove, all you will need is a Hot Glue Gun and some paper clips (optional).

Step 1: The Use of the Glue Gun

      You will need to unscrew the body of the Hot Glue Gun and get the part attached to the wires, which is called the heat generator. Some may look different because most glue guns look different than the one I am using. But, it will be the little black/grey cylinder/cube attached to the cord.

Step 2: Making the Body

      For the body I used a paper plate because the heat generator did not touch it so I didn't have much worries about the fire hazard. But I would NOT recommend using this. If you can use something non flammable but can conduct heat fast. I would very much recommend using a metal pan by touching the genrator to it so the whole pan will become hot.
          Just touch the piece of food to the Generator or (if you used a metal pan) the metal pan, to cook it. Don't be mad if it takes a second. This will be hot a little after you plug it in so do not have in reach of kids.
           So, that is how MacGyver would do it. Enjoy your homemade "MacGyver stove!"

    tried to help you to understand but I give up -removed all my comments myself - good luck

    I meant one French Fri, I am really young and I was excited about it and I just wanted to enter it. So if you would, stop commenting and annoy someone elses page.

    I stated why I used the bowl, and that my generator was different. Also, a pan could conduct heat if you let it set, a real stove doesn't automatically turn hot- It takes a while. Just like this, if you have the generator staying on the pan, in a matter of time it can become hot.

    If you listened you'll see that you can use a metal pan so you can conduct heat through out. Doing this the whole pan gets hot so you can cook bigger foods.
