    The ones I saw on the internet for sale are more complicated. They had more layers of pots and were screwed together with bolts, washers and nuts. This one is much simpler to deal with.

    This is nice to know as we have 'winter weather' for the first time since 1989 in Florida! I've had some friends with power out in a neighboring town earlier this afternoon. I shared this on FB. Thanks for posting!

    Man, this beats a kerosene heater and appears to be a little safer

    Do you have to use tea lights or can you use the small candles?

    Does the bottom of the loaf pan get hot? Should you put something under it to protect whatever surface you are placing heater on? Thank you.

    I had never heard of this. What an amazing idea. I have an oversized livingroom that is very hard to keep warm, so I will be trying this very soon!

    Wow! What a Super Economical way to heat your home. What a great way for people who live in new construction in Florida, who don't have fire places, to heat their homes. Gonna try this soon, thanks.

    I think a Mr. Buddy heater is a must have myself. I have one that I have never had to use but from the reviews I think I will feel safe heating one room. I also have two sleeping bags that are made for extreme cold. I have been buying things bit by bit because I hate the thought of my mother, in her eighties, being cold, hungry, or thirsty.

    We tried this after seeing a video online. It didn't work well at all. We decided against trying again after reading warnings about using these types of heaters inside because of possible carbon monoxide poisoning.
