Propane stoves are easy to cook with. They ignite easily, and are great for fast meals. We have one that we use on our kitchen counter in front of the window when the power goes out. We usually open the window a little.
You can also purchase a propane oven for baking. Baking, however, is not a quick task. Propane ovens use a lot of propane.
Propane heaters work well in many situation. One brand is the Buddy Heater, pictured above. These are designed to work inside buildings during their construction.
Propane has a long storage life, but garage store is not recommended. Fumes can escape the propane cans, and they can be ignited when you start your car. It is best to store propane in an outbuilding.
Some people install large propane tanks outside their home. You see these a lot in rural areas.
