brand kerosene fueled products are available in America from
are highly recommended and try to have parts in stock for the stoves they
sell. They the large Butterfly 828R pressure lantern (a Petromax clone), and have the very useful Butterfly oven that fits on top
of some kerosene stoves.
There are many different types and
styles of Butterfly stoves. The #2457 and #2628 are conventional
multi-wick stoves, and I have the wicks or you can use a strand from a cotton
mop head as a wick. These are inexpensive stoves, but they work. Being
all metal, they are sturdy. See the links below on how to set up a
Butterfly #2457 or #2628 to work properly. I still have a Butterfly
#2457, as the design of the grill holds the Butterfly oven very nicely.
Butterfly manufactured gravity-fed
designs, such as the #2413, 2417, 2418. Photos of these stoves are
listed in the Photo
Album at my Wick Shop web site.
These stoves all use a glass reservoir for fuel, but with care it will last
for a long time. The proprietary wick used in these stoves stands on its
edge in a slot - it does NOT move up and down to control the heat output like
the multi-wick stoves. The wick will last a long time with proper care, but
you must have spare wicks! Those wicks are available from
I use a Butterfly #2418 double burner stove for normal kitchen type cooking,
but I made sure I had a dozen spare wicks on hand.
