My kitchen




London to Far East Asia 2015 to 2017 Africa 2018 Notes
MRS Dragonfly multi fuel stove  No change I chose it because you can lower the heat to simmer. It is extremely noisy and at guesthouses I used to put the TV at top volume to mask the noise of the stove. Make sure you check and maintain the stove regularly. I didn't and nearly set a guesthouse on fire when I had a petrol leak!
MSR Dragonfly pump No change I had to change the pump twice The first time when the plastic casing broke during maintenance and the second when I had the fuel leak. Make sure you get a pump specifically for Dragonfly as the standard MSR one does not fit.
