-Price for the butane stove at various kitchen supply stores and retail locations go for about $20-30.
the World Famous butane stove costs $30 at Canadian Tire (LINK)

-Grill top usually goes for $10 (cheap ones) to $30 (nice ones) at kitchen supply stores and asian malls.

-Butane canisters are cheap. $5-8 for a three to five pack and they last a long time.

-You can buy some pork belly, beef ribs, various sliced meats and sit around the patio table outside and eat. (you can cook on the kitchen table but I find the air gets kind of oily since you don't have an exhaust over it.

-The stove and grill plate are two different items so you could just use the butane stove burner to cook with a regular pan or pot outside or wherever , or you could use it inside for hotpot/Shabu-shabu.

You probably shouldn't use this indoors without proper ventilation since it'll produce carbon monoxide and potentially kill you.

You can use a butane stove inside. They do not produce significant quantities of CO.

Looks very similar, but this one includes the non-stick griddle pan.

I dunno, based on my experience you're better off with a propane stove (several readily available at this price). Easier access to multi-packs and larger cans make it an overall better value. I will agree that this is much more portable tho, if that floats your boat.

Doubt it. I used the $10 stoves all the time in both residential and commercial applications and have been happy with it.

Induction isn't bad if you have the right pans. But if you have non ferrous pans, butane is the only way to go.

I'd personally buy one for emergency situation, in case there is a huge power outage.
In many countries, people still use butane gas for cooking. It is not dangerous at all (unless you puncture the bottle I suppose).
Butane is more energy efficient than electric stove. ;)
I has no costco membership. I won't be buying it at the moment. Errr...

Thanks, OP,

Where do you get them so cheap? I see $11.38 per 4 cylinders in the Walmart... http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/coleman-but ... s/10137457
the most common price in any asian grocery store that I've seen is 7.99 for a 4 pack. some places are cheaper and some places are more expensive.
