Build a Primer Pan


Priming pans are required for pressurized jet stoves (unless you come up with another method for preheating - candle, etc) but may also be used with hybrid sideburner jet stoves, which would allow you to set your pot on the stove and then light without needing to hold the pot above your stove while it warms up.  Primer pans may also be needed to heat up any stove in very cold weather.


Please refer to Don Johnson's Video of lighting the stove to get an idea of how use your pan.
