    Hario Syphon on a gas range?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Everyone.

    I have a Hario syphon (BL-TCA-3) and I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried using them on a gas range instead of the little ethanol heater? I am able to turn one of my burners down to a low center flame only ~1" across, and the syphon "feet" sit easily on the iron range grill and are not near the flame. I hate to break a pot experimenting but it really doesn't look any hotter than the portable burner. Any feedback? Thanks!

    I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as you can regulate the heat enough and it sits on the cooktop stably. Give it a try.

    I used my Bodum Santos on a gas stove without problem.

    Smallest burner on very low with a heat diffuser similar to the pic below over the flame.

    I've never used the ethanol burner that came with my hario syphon pot. Instead I bought a small gas burner that you refill with butane gas cartridges. It fits under the the Syphon pot perfectly, in fact it is manufactured for the Syphon Coffee, but manufactured by Tiamo which I've always thought of as the Taiwan equivalent to the Japanese Hario. It looks like this, I think it's a much safer and better alternative to stove top. At least I would not be able to position the Syphon over the kitchen stove where I fear it's low-wide flames might melt the lower plastic area of the syphon holder.

    The syphon burner is high and localised enough to just burn the glass pot. You can find it on eBay by searching syphon burner (you'll also see the more expensive halogen syphon burners)

    I use my glass Bodum siphon (flat bottom) on a natural gas stove on the smallest ring, never had an issue, works very well. Also used it on a hotter ring with no ill effects.
