Bought one of these this week and finally got it setup with a new propane tank. I did a test on the electric kitchen stove then the same test outside using the new burner. I was surprised how easy it is to adjust the flame just using the air intake on the burner and dialed it in pretty quick, tho i suspect i can still fiddle with it a bit to be more efficient.
I brought 6ga of water to a boil and let it roll for 60 minutes to see what the boil-off would be.
|Equipment||Time to Boil ||Starting Volume ||Ending Volume |
|Kitchen Stove || 1:21:00|| 6ga|| 5ga|
|KAB6|| 0:23:00|| 6ga|| 5ga|
Both ending volumes were so close I just rounded it to 5ga. I would've had to use a measuring cup to find the actual difference. Not sure if anyone else will find this data useful but I just thought it was interesting.
BTW I'm not sure what the BTUs are on the electric stovetop, its really old. I can try to find out if anyone needs the info.
