Default Portable Hot Water Heaters

I know about the Coleman hot water heater, but do you think this would work OK?

It looks like a metal pump sprayer on a Turkey fryer!

I hope that there's a pressure release valve or this could be like a pressure cooker. Its not much less than the Coleman, which would work so much better and without an open flame. The Coleman has its own pump and temp control for the water, which this does not. For the money, I don't think the pump sprayer matches up. If it was $50, then maybe.

Just my initial thoughts.

I just ordered a Coleman from Amazon, should be here in a couple days. It cost 179.00 with free shipping. I had to apply for a credit card they offer to get 30.00 off that so it will cost 145.00. I will pay this off and 86 the card because its a high interest rate card. With shipping and the card deal I saved about 60.00.

I agree with Plowboy! That thing is an explosion waiting to happen.
