Igniting Gas Burner
BryanG
I have been looking and seen a bunch of different ignitors for burners, running from hand held lighters, to batter operated, to push button. I am hoping to have my roaster concealed in a stainless box, changing batteries is not appealing if I have to remove a panel.

Has anyone used a electric spark module like they have on kitchen stoves? Seems like it would be easy to hook a switch to one. (I am looking at fluid air) So I would turn on air, turn on spark, open gas valve, turn off spark, and then roast away.

Is it that simple or am I missing something? I could go and raid a discarded stove and get the parts for nothing :)

Bryan, It is that simple. I would use a momentary switch for ignition. Keep in mind that some ranges use 220v, and that the transformer coil might be wired with that in mind. You have to use high-voltage rated insulated wire between the transformer's secondary winding and the "spark plug." It would be great if you could get the whole shebang from an old range, or appliance parts dealer.
1 pound electric sample roaster, 3 pound direct-flame roaster, both handmade; modified Mazzer Mini grinder, LaSpaziale Vivaldi II automatic espresso machine. When the electricity goes out I make vacpot coffee from beans ground on my Zassenhaus hand grinder, and heat the water with a teakettle on the gas range.

My personal preference is the BBQ grill battery operated models which the batteries will last at least 2 years (I've seen 4 years).

Here's a reasonably priced 120 volt unit:

Edit: I looked up the honeywell replacement and seems to be around $90.00!

The ones on Amazon where you link to are a lot cheaper.
