Collected the steamer from my parents. The base is made from polypropylene so that should be fine for use with acetone. I can’t find what material the trays are made from. One problem might be that the liquid (acetone) needs to be put right against the heating element which I assume rockets way over 100°C. The boiling point of acetone is < 60°C so that’s causing some concern about flash fire and the end of the world scenarios in my shed.
I am wondering if I can steam a tray of acetone and suspend the acetone in water vapour.
Any suggestions? I am willing test anything just to see what happens.
Safety Note: I will be performing all testing OUTSIDE whilst wearing fire protective clothing and with a fire extinguisher close by.
