Exactly What is a Safe Cooking Fuel?

When cooking food while camping or keeping food warm for a catering event, no one wants to use food burner cans that release nasty toxins into the air. Why not? Because the same source that is releasing this exhaust is also cooking and warming up food that you are about to eat. That is why using a safe cooking fuel is absolutely necessary. To that end, you need to know what is a safe cooking fuel.

So, What is a “Safe Cooking Fuel?”

It’s all-natural, which means it doesn’t release bad toxins into the air. All- natural means it is bio-based, and it is free of petroleum or alcohol. For example, our BioFuel Reusable Burner Cans and BioFuel Refill Liquid uses a substance that is made from food.

Another aspect that would classify a cooking fuel as safe is if it’s non-flammable. There are some food burner cans on the market that are flammable and are not safe for both indoor and outdoor use. A safer alternative to these cooking fuels would be a burner can that one can use indoors and outdoors. Why is this important? Because if it’s safe to use indoors to cook and warm food, then it is safe to breathe the air while the can is in use as long as it’s well ventilated.

When shopping for a “safe cooking fuel,” remember to read about the canister that is holding the cooking fuel as well. If it’s safe to use, the bottom of the can will stay cool to the touch during use.

Who knew picking out the perfect cooking fuel would require so much research and thought? It is always better to be cautious and go with the safer cooking fuel.
