I am in the market for a new stove. What are pros & cons of these stoves( LK make) over the Cadac stainless steel stove? Which one is a good buy?

Dankie

I have seen people using the cast iron stove on the ground without anything underneath, would one do that with the stainless steel stove?

Ek gebruik geen gas nie, maar as ek eendag moet oorslaan na gas, sal hierdie Cadac stoof my keuse wees

I have one of those cast iron ones. It is good but quite difficult to adjust to a low flame without it going off completely.  You can get it to burn low with practice. I usually use mine for jaffles for which it is really good.

I would like one of those compact Cadac double burners but they are quite pricey at R1999.00. I am still trying to justify the price.

Both of the stoves you have pictured burns with a soft flame.  These type of burners do not like windy conditions and you will always need to cover the windy side for them to work best.

I would suggest to get the two plate Cadac stove that has the old blow type burners.  Similar to the old single Potjiekos burners: 

  • Firstly you can hear the flame is still on.
  • The wind has less effect on the flame.
  • I would think because of the above they are more effective.

Another soft flame type burner.  Probably the reason for the wind cover around it.  Nothing wrong with this type of burners if you use a wind deflector with it.

Check out this web site for other types of gas stoves, you are unfortunately a bit far away from Krugersdorp:

Dis waar. Ons het laasjaar n potjie gemaak met so n burner onder die pot.....selfs n ligte windjie het daai vlam beinvloed, het toe bakstene om die pot gepak om wind te keer

Yes, price went up drastically....my brother bought his Cadac double cooker last year October at Checkers Hyper for R1299....their new price is also now R1999
