hell0 again! well, no, I don't use it since many years maybe 15 too, because the kerosene/naphtha become really more expensive than it was and the most of the households here in my country use gas stoves to cook which is much cheaper,but it is also much more dangerous because the natural gas is high explosive and I am really scared of it!

It had been more than 20 years we didn't use kerosene stove in our home anymore. Since we moved to the city area, we prefer to use the gas stove, as it's more convenient and clean. When we was using the kerosene stove before, our kitchen become dirty easily and the air in our home always polluted. Recently, we are using the electric stove, since it's easier and we don't need carry the gas cylinder whenever the gas finished. So far, i feel it's more convenient than the gas stove and we really like it a lot.

We have a gas cooker in the house but I also keep a couple of camping stoves handy for emergency.

Oh, no. I don't think anybody in my city uses kerosene stove. They are outdated. Now, it is easy to get cooking gas and you can get it by one phone call as soon as one kit of gas gets over. It is difficult to mange kerosens stoves. Also, it takes a lot of time to cook food compared to gas stove or electric heated. This is the period of induction stoves, but I heard that they consume a lot of electricity.

No,ever since I was born I have seen only gas stoves being used in my house.My father purchases two gas cylinders per month which is all we need to cook meals for a month for our family of three.I think there are still several families in my country who use kerosene stoves to prepare meals.And I agree that such a stove should be there at home for emergency use if the gas cylinder suddenly turns empty.I will definitely convey this idea to my parents.Thanks for the suggestion. Regards.

I use gas stove for almost 20 years my mom doesn't like kerosene stove because its dirty and take much more time to cook food. Its better to use gas stove because its clean and only take a little time to cook. In my country its really hard to find kerosene now, you can find it only at gas station and very expensive. For the same amount of money you use to buy kerosene a day its enough to buy a gas for a week.

No, not a kerosene stove! We use a gas stove in or house - but in my native village, my grandmother cooks using the help of the kerosene stoves! No, there is no emergency purpose - we pre-order a gas cylinder and keep it!
