what I've done in the rent home i moved from.i'd keep a small electric space heater in there during the winter only..seeing how it can be cold in there during the winter.i'd turn it on and close the door.come back 5 to 10 minutes later.and it'll be plenty warm in there.then id turn the hot water on..that not only adds moisture to the air.but warms things up in there a lil more. as well.
I've often thought about life without electricity. the longest ive gone without it is 3 days on 2 occasions. Tornadoes is the cause of it each time.i was able to borrow a gas generator the 1st time.i borrowed a ice chest the 2nd time.between it and the one i already have.allowed me to save my refrigerator foods.freezer foods remaind frozen.both situations allows me to at lest have a good idea to what life would be like with no electric. on a permanent basis..that's one reason i got into home canning.seeing how meats as well as other foods can be canned.i deffently need to learn ways of cooking and canning without electric and gas.
i don't need or care for scented any thing.for laundry.dishes shampoo's. to what ever.and i won't. and don't use fabric softner or the cling free sheets.i wash my clothes n other stuff in everyday detergent.then dry it..I'm a happy camper with that.
Thats why i prefer doing most of my canning duting the winter.but as for as sumner time canning goes.i'll either get a esrly start.in which i can 1 batch only.before the heat of the day starts setting in.then start up again after 6pm.

As for as a 8 inch electric burner goes..chances are.it'll work just fine.
Im glad that i came across this topic .i have a pomiranian.i home can certain foods.in which that includes chicken soup.and turkey soup.I've been leaning into the direction of canning some soups in half pint jars especially for her.place's that process deer and meat department at local grocery stores was mentioned. I'll be giving them a try on my next primary shopping trip.
