Cobalt Blue Soloist 1

Post by ConnieD » Sat Feb 14, 2015 11:17 pm

I received my Cobalt Blue Soloist 1.

It is a little jewel.

I think I will get 200-proof alcohol for it: I don't want to clog the little holes with yellow Heet.

Is there a way to clean the stove after using yellow Heet?

This is my first Zelph stove with the copper strip. It preheats?

I have another question while I wait to purchase alcohol for it: do I wait for it to "bloom"?

The little wick in the center helps ignite the alcohol in extreme cold weather. It gets wet as fuel is poured in. Light the wick and it will take the flame down to the

surface of the fuel and ignite it. Vapors hang low inside the fuel reservoir and need the help of the wick. You can use 3" long kitchen matches to get the flame down to

the fuel also.

Yes, wait 10 seconds for the jets to ignite and then put the pot on.
