    A lovely stove from a while ago. I think it was subject to a recall too because of people putting large plates on it. There was also strong advice about not removing the canister unless totally empty. Very popular stove back then. I put a new canister on it and it's running fine.

    Running at half throttle.

    I have a 206, but can’t find canisters in Japan. Do you know of any adapters that can be added to use other types of canisters?

    @Sedgman That looks an absolute beauty! Like it had never been used and with the box as well, wow! These use pierce-able cartridges where the dimple in the top of the cartridge gets pierced by the needle under the stove and sealing is achieved by the rubber seal under the stove. Trying to remove a part full cartridge would break the seal and allow the pressurised and volatile gas to escape, hence the warnings as it might be tempting to break the stove down to separate the tank from the burner for carriage or storage
    @David Campbell The models designated 200 can take either the 200 or 206 cartridge, but by design, those designated 206 are not backwards compatible with remaining stocks of 200 cartridges. I am not aware of other cartridges, save the clones by other makers, that could fit, on account of the piercing nature of the stove. There is a modern 206GLS (Gas lock system) cartridge which has some form of flow valve inside. "Gas lock system: The system prevents the majority of residual gas from escaping the cartridge when accidentally disconnecting it from the appliance, thereby also preventing flare-ups "
    The GLS would be something of a safety feature to overcome the issues of separating the stove from the tank. They are compatible with standard 206 appliances.

    Thanks, @Dean for the info and answering the enquiry from @David Campbell. I have no extra info that I could add.
