View Full Version : Sterno as a heat source?

12-07-2012, 04:44 PM
So, I got married about a month ago, and we didn't have anything catered. All friends and us. Rented chafing dishes to keep things warm.

Now, I find myself with 4 lightly used cans of sterno that I decided to just store in my lab space on the off chance that they may come in handy.

I've got an alcohol lamp that I rarely use, (mostly a hotplate with a sand or water bath.)

Has anyone used sterno as a heat source for Spagyric work?

I'm just curious what your results were.

Thanks in advance
