    Very similar to the Tilley Go-stove except this is the up-market version having the benefit of a pan-ring "for added stability" (it says here). For some reason, probably only known to Tilley, the pan-ring has been engineered to have a slight downhill slope away from the valve so your pan or kettle won't be horizontal. ](*,)

    Like the Go-stove, it uses the Tilley disposable cartridges which have a snap-on base ring, again for stability.

    Hi David

    Could it be so that when the pan boils over, you are with a chance of reaching the valve without being scalded by a boiling waterfall?

    I thought about that, Ian, particularly with respect to a boiling kettle. But it would depend, in the first place, on you putting the kettle on the stove with the spout facing away from the valve. And then I thought the natural reaction to anything boiling over, be it kettle or pan, would be to simply lift it off the stove and then turn the valve.

    No mention of the slope in the instructions or on the box, either. Knowing Tilley, if it was a safety feature, I'm sure they'd be trumpeting it as 'an innovation in stove design'...
