    That looks like a standard $20 butane stove that has many brand name stickers and different case colors applied, but this includes an adapter and hose to run it off of propane. The last time I bought those butane canisters was two years ago, and they were only $5 for four at a local Asian market.

    I hear ya man lol.

    I have seen too many of this style of stove on youtube that have exploded. I think @snwcmpr hit the nail on the head.

    Interesting. I'll have to look for those. I'm guessing and hoping these were before the redesign of the butane cans so they would expand and release gas rather than explode. The video I saw of the redesign to be safer even acknowledged the earlier ones exploding.

    I have one of these stoves but haven't cooked on it yet. Mine is Coleman branded and I think retailed for about $20 when I got it last fall.

    @Jim Lukowski I didn't know that they had redesigned the canisters. I read more up on it thanks to your post.

    It really depends on the stove itself as some of them have safety mechanisms that cut gas flow and eject the canister. That aside, the newer canisters do have safety mechanisms to let them vent (with flame) rather than pop in one go and become a big fireball if all of the safeties fail.

    I have a post on this after looking into cassette stove canisters:
