Be confident and treat the lighting of your stove with respect.
Do not light the stove until you have everything you need.
Ensure you have put water or food in the pan you wish to use.
Share meals and water to save time and fuel.
Take the top off the gas cylinder and keep it safe. This stops dirt getting into the valve.
Check the regulator knob at the end of the gas hose is turned off.
Connect the gas cylinder to the hose by positioning the valve on top of the cylinder screw thread and turning anti-clockwise.
For new cylinders, there will be a release of liquid gas.
This is normal. Keep quickly turning until the cylinder is secure.
To turn on, twist the regulator and then light the gas burner.
TIP: Use a long-handled lighter for greater safety when lighting.
Never put an empty pan on top of the lit stove as it will burn a hole in the pan.
To switch off, turn the regulator to the off position.
