Harrers I just bought one of these as I am camping in my new home. No point in getting anything permanent until I build my dream kitchen. Actually I may use it with my Renault Traffic van which may become my multi-purpose vehicle to use in place of my current car, motorhome and the van itself. I am trying to find ways of using it in place of the motorhome but still be able to remove all of the habitation stuff and use it as a van for building materials. It also has three removable seats in the back which I leave out most of the time as they are not easy to get in and out but would be useful if family come to stay.

I bought the stove at Narbonne Accessories which I find a bit pricey but they have a special offer on these one, two and three burner stoves this month. It cost 49.90 euros plus some inexplicable tax of 2 euros (ECO-participation DEEE TTC!).

I also have a Cadac in the MH which is still in store in the Vale of Glamorgan. I am returning to UK at end of the week and will be planning what to do with all vehicles etc after that.

BTW fitted a Bulfinch bbq point earlier this year and it's had loadsa use. Rank it alongside the gaslow in usefulness and no need to carry a separate gas cylinder just to use with the bbq.
Yes I wish I had an external space too. Unfortunately any back box would overhang my parking space at home and project into the road. No room on the the roof either as it full of solar panels. I did fit a Bullfinch and agree with you over it usefulness. I have a long hose on the Cadac so I can use it either side of van for shelter. Works well. The whole kit packs away neatly to nothing.

aldra This is what we use

Don't use the griddles on the Cadac

Just this, no drips easy to clean and a good surface area

Cook and push things to the side

Can be used with the diffuser

Have one at home and use it all the time

Watch our for them at Aldi

havingfun hi,

the cadac 2 burner cooker ticks a lot of boxes, bought one for our son who lives in spain, during the summer they cook outside because of the heat, he has a bbq, but the cadac does all the rest. 2 boiling rings, which convert into griddle plates or frying plates, so for a couple of you can cook a full meal, boil the kettle, fry eggs griddle meat, etc, and being a cadac bomb proof, and only a couple of griddle plates to wash..........

The Cadac Safari Chef has a fat catchment ring and the cooking bits are easy to wash.

Zebedee It all becomes clear Andrew - thanks.

Cooking pongs from below would not be very nice.

I don't follow the logic there!

Zebedee Thanks Grizz

It will have been ordered (well, nearly) by the time you read this.

Dave


Edit: Correction. I'm not paying 5 quid postage on a £7.99 item, so it will have to wait until we go to town.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

Next purchase imminent I fear!!

No. Basically it's a non-stick domed top with a drip tray gutter all the way round the outside. The fat runs off the food and into the drip tray from where it can be drained at the end. The drip tray can be separated for easier washing up. X years of use and the surface is still pristine; non-stick and not stained.

P.S. We have all electric cooking at home, and during the occasional power cut the little stove is perfectly adequate for making a cuppa and preparing a snack meal in the frying pan or saucepan. It has rescued us a couple of times already - though we would usually de-camp into the van when it wasn't too freezing cold.
