Keeping this in view, is Sterno flame toxic?
5 Answers. Sterno is (roughly) alcohol mixed with gel. The same type of alcohol (ethanol mixed with enough methanol to make it poisonous) is commonly used in marine stoves because it's considered to be quite safe: it doesn't explode and it can be extinguished with water.
Beside above, is Sterno the same as gel fuel? No, it is not the same. Sterno cans contain a gel-type fuel, and the can has an open hole in the top (approximately 2 inches in diameter). Sterno cans contain a gel-type fuel, and the can has an open hole in the top (approximately 2 inches in diameter).
Similarly, you may ask, can you burn Sterno indoors?
Sterno is very light weight and easily ignited with a match or a spark from flint and steel but is not explosive. It is also safe for use indoors. A Sterno Stove can be purchased at any sporting goods store and will retail between $3 and $8, depending upon the model you choose.
Can you boil water with Sterno?
When I used to hike the Grand Canyon in the winter I used Sterno to warm my tent in the morning. It will boil water, but as others have said it takes a while. Its mainly used in food service banquets to keep hot foods hot or at least warm.
