    Are you familiar with gas stoves? The flame should be as much blue as possible, with maybe a fringe of yellow.

    Those things should not be used in an enclosed space unless you have a sensitive CO detector. And maybe not even then...

    Many were vented.
    I'd see no reason not to use a vented one that's maintained and burning well.

    I mean, if they're good enough for Sally, Rob and Buddy. And Jerry.....

    Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    If it's vented and running well... OK. But I'd still want a CO detector -- and not in a bedroom.
