I'd like a gas hob, but not connected to gas...

...is it straightforward connecting it to a gas bottle?   Are there any disadvanges, apart from having to replace bottles every now and again?

Any advice would be welcome!

COOKIN on GAS!!    Got it sorted, eyebrows still intact, the garage forgot to give me the regulator.    Thanks for your kind assistance, I'm so proud of it that I don't want to use it and get it all messy.Palmtrees

Excuse the mild panic, but I have guests coming tomorrow, and all I have is a single electric ring and a combi micro.    (no belt, no braces, no string etc)

Thank you for staying up so late just to answer my queries, but this "clip"  détendeur thing...... I can't see it on the cube, and as it's my first bottle/new contract, why did'nt I get one????    Does it come with the pipe which I have to buy anyway, or is it intergrated into the design of the cube so that I can't see it?

just re-read your post and see you have a Cube which, I believe, has its own regulator (détendeur) called a Clip which should be provided with your first bottle.Not sure if But stock the pipe/regulator (they should if they sell gazinieres) but my local Intermarche does.As for left-hand threads, it's a pre-cubist thing, a kind of alternate screwing around.

HUH!!!    What's that Danomines?    Left hand threads?    Is that your outfit again?   What's the French for "regulator", so I know what to ask for?     I thought this was supposed to be easy!!!

Do you think But will stock the pipe and "regulator"??? there's one near me.

Palmtrees, congratulations on your new acquisition.

In addition to the pipe, you will need a regulator, if you haven't already got one - and be aware, they have left hand threads :)

bonne cuisine

Yo Palmtrees - indoors, add Pac-a-Mac and sandals/socks for outside (summer only). Can't quite get away with just the string.The gas is inside too, don't want to suffer from a loss of pressure in the winter, do I?

Danomines, is that for indoors or outdoors?   The gas I mean ( and the outfit ).
