    No Model # or Manufacture Name on this beautiful stove. It uses Camping Gaz 904 butane tank. Unfortunately these tanks are not available in the USA. From the looks of the burner it has never been fired up.

    Very interesting. I've not seen anything like it. What are its dimensions?

    Are you sure it uses an R904 canister? An R904 is pretty big. Does it work off of a hose? Is there no way you could make an adapter?

    Lovely stove. Unless you find a camping gaz tank here in the US, you may just have to modify the connector to accept the 1 lb. propane tanks.

    CG 904/907 = butane, so I'd steer clear of propane fuel.

    I believe it's a restaurant stove for putting the finishing touches to dishes (such as those 'flamed' in brandy) at the diner's table.

    These pop up from time to time, most have the 'standard' Campinggaz stove with pierceable cartridges in them. Always wondered why these were made, John's suggestion re their use at restaurants makes perfect sence!

    Best regards,

    I'm with John on this one. I used something similar at a restaurant I worked in many years ago. It was used for flambe and crepe suzette. I think the handles are the giveaway - designed to be moved around from table to table. The ones I used had a small spirit burner.

    Looks to be nicely made and much cleaner than the ones we used!

    This is the modern equivilant (Made by Mauviel USA at $525 plus tax!):

    Oy! It's a big one. And you can't get the R904 tanks in the US? You're in Idaho, right? Can you drive across the border and get one in Canada?

    If not, I wonder if you can refill the tank through the jet from the cheap grocery store butane canisters. I refill my CV360 and standard threaded canisters from this type of canister.

    According to the Gaz site, nothing in the Americas, north or south.
    You can remove the burner while full, as it has threads.

    What kind of connector does the tank have? Threaded obviously, but what specification?
