I have used one of these, my mom bought it for me on a lark years ago. It worked great, burned nice and hot, you could use stuff other than newsprint of course. Actually, when I was trapped in a 'no smoke' apartment, this little beauty was great. Burned so hot and fast, there was no smoke to complain about.
