Assuming the the water in the bottom pan is Yad Soledes Bo before Shabbos would it be Mutar to do Shehiya for the Friday night Shalom Zachar or the like on top of Sternos?
I was primarily thinking that maybe it should be Mutar based on the fact that you don't stir the fuel in a sterno so it should be equivalent to Kash Ugevava - straw and stubble. Additionally, nobody ever cooks on a Sterno.
Additionally, a friend of mine wanted to say that you should be allowed to do Nesina Lechatchillah because it should be considered a Kedeira Al Gabei Kedeira (assuming you fulfill the conditions) since you're putting it on top of a pan of hot water. Is that a valid point?
