What can you tell me about this stove? I bought it off Ebay several years ago, and ran across it today. Where can I get gas cartridges for it? Thanks, Jdman

If the blue, stamped steel "cup" was removed would it screw onto a normal propane cylinder?

Product Description
Simple and strong, the GaZ Bleuet 206 stove has 2 foldable arms and is equipped with a stabilizer base and a burner windshield (detachable)

Power: 1200W.

Speed: 7 minutes to boil 1L water

Cartridge: C206

This is an older stove but it is reliable stable and is easy to run. Perhaps a good find on Ebay or other web-auction site.
Fuel Availability
This stove burns Isobutane

Butane and twenty percent propane which is sold in light steel canisters. It has replaced straight butane since it ignites in outside air temperatures down to about 15º F (-10º C). It is the most convenient and clean-burning fuel for normal conditions since you just strike a match and turn on the stove.

Isobutane is mainly sold in two incompatible formats: canisters manufactured by Camping Gaz-Bluet, a French company that dominates the gas stove market, and more or less industry standard canisters sold by EPI (British), Primus (Swedish), MSR and Coleman (American), and Olicamp (Chinese).

Gaz-Bluet fuel canisters are practically everywhere in continental Europe, widely available in outdoor shops in the U.S., Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, and somewhat available in sixty-two other countries.

I was going to ask if this

was the right cannisters, but reading the post above, I'm not sure.

Cylinder availablity chased me away from isobutane stoves 20 years ago for exactly this compartability question.
