St. Paul Mercantile is the USA Distributor for the Butterfly brand of kerosene products. All of the Butterfly products we carry are manufactured in Indonesia. These kerosene stoves and oven are sold all over the world, primarily in countries that have limited or unreliable electric power. We import them for our off-grid customers, preppers, and families that simply want to have a way to cook if the electricity goes out.
These products are not manufactured nor packaged to USA expectations. We do repack many of the stoves so they survive the shipping process, and we double box all the stoves. Your stove or oven may have small scratches, smudges, or even a rust spot. The paint may not be perfect. There might be an oily film on some of the parts. Nevertheless, these stoves are the best available, as no first-world countries manufacture them.
Butterfly stoves have not been tested by any third party certification agency and as such do not carry anyone's stamp of approval or safety certification. They have not been approved or certified for use indoors. Some of our customers do use them indoors, and because using any type of fueled stove inside creates a fire hazard, we recommend appropriate precautions by taken. Provide extra ventilation. Have a fire extinguisher nearby (never use water to extinguish a kerosene fire). Do not leave a burning stove unattended. Do not use kerosene stoves as room heaters. Keep children away from operating stoves.
