    the heating element exploded in my face, I'm just glad I didn't set off the smoke alarms

    is this cheap and very hot?

    I had this idea when looking at my glue gun... who knew they already made this?

    Interesting. I think I prefer the little mini-stoves that burn your choice of readily-available fuels, from rubbing alcohol (91% ideally, but 70% will work, it just smokes like the dickens) to HEET. I would be afraid that little wire base would not be stable. Also, those will work when there is no electricity. But this was very clever, and looks very easy!

    I was going to try if a solder gun could work for me. I want to build a small stove to heat up some soup and stuff when I get hungry.

    I like this idea so much i just keep on watching it! It's to good of an idea!

    wow cool...but the dude sounds like Pedro from napoleon dynamite

    Great i'ble! The only problem is that if you are camping, you don't have an outlet.

    I saw the 'ible, then I saw the video, and I still think it's a nice idea, but too unstable to be properly safe.

    Good one. I would have never thought of that.

    Ahah nice idea, I made one, I will test it as soon as I get a can!
