Someone help me identify this portable burner??

I want to know what type of burner this lady is using in her youtube video.
It's just so chic, shiny, awesome, and the design is just awesome. I want to get one, but I don't know what it's called, I don't care if I have to pay thousands for it, I just want it.

I'll attach the photo of the burner from the video if some people don't want to go on youtube.

    At HMart (Korean) I've seen a small one with a concave burner base. About as thin as this, and not nearly as pricey.

    I suspect most are functionally the same, though Iwatani has added some sort of heat exchanger, that uses a bit of the burner heat to warm the canister. This maintains fuel flow better. In cool weather the canisters can get cold due to evaporating fuel. That's why I find this stove more useful around the house than when camping.

      Thanks everyone, I'll be bookmarking the Iwatani catalog.

        The burner model is Amorfo. It is an award winning portable burner. You don't have to pay a thousand dollars, but you will have to pay a few hundreds:


        Iwatani has a few more other interesting burners as well. You may want to take a look of those as well. There is the Miyabi burner:


        the Eco burner:

          I know you said you're looking for that particular model, but there is one similar sold in truck stops as a Burton Gas Stove.

            It looks like this one:


            No idea where you could get one. You might have to contact the manufacturer directly.

            If you go to http://www.iwatani.com/ there's a U.S. contact email and phone number for their cooking stoves

            btw - "Cooking With Dog" is an awful name for a cooking show.

              It's a variation on the butane hotplate that is common in east Asia. Notice the cylindrical housing for the butane canister on the side.

              is a more common, inexpensive, version of the same thing

              Iwatani's Cassette-Feu were the original models, and still some of the best.

                Yeah, I know it's a portable butane burner, I just want that specific model because of its design. I probably should have said that in the OP.

                  I can't find anything quite like it elsewhere. It probably is just sold on the Japanese market. Several years ago Iwatani had different 'designer' model.

                    I had no luck on my end either. Thanks for trying though.
