However, they have their drawbacks and sometimes they’re more hassle than they’re worth. Yes, using unleaded fuel is very cheap but it means carrying around a jerry can or similar of fuel which despite your best efforts will stink out your car/tent etc. And probably give you a headache. Plus, using unleaded also quickly clogs up the generators which I’ve found to need regular replacement (my dual burner is on its fourth). There’s the hassle of constantly pumping pressure into the fuel tank, and releasing it when not in use, plus there’s little control over the temperature of the flame (it’s either coughing yellow flames or firing out enough energy to launch a NASA orbiter.
So it’s brought me to buying a couple of these Campingaz burners and frankly I don’t know why I didn’t do it earlier. They’re so much less hassle and very clean when in use. The canisters of fuel are readily available and last well, and changing them is simple. There’s no unpleasant smell from them and unlike the Coleman stoves they have an in-built ignition so no hunting around for a lighter/matches. The carry case is compact and the whole unit doesn’t take up much space in the car. Considering the Coleman 424 is well over £100 these days I think two of these for around £20 and another £10 on fuel canisters will last me happily for a couple of years of camping.
Having said this, it does still work despite the inner ring being all warped. It was easy to light initially, although this feature began to fail at the end of a five day camping trip (in which I boiled water for coffee/tea, milk for hot chocolate, re-heated meatballs and cooked pasta, porridge and rice).
It is lightweight and as stable as the bricks we rested it on. Another gripe I have is that the fuel was used up very quickly (we used 4 cans in 5 days) while the other people in our party barely used one can of their better quality gas. I got exactly what I paid for (the cheapest, but flimsiest camping stove on amazon).
However, this little device is simplicity itself, both to operate (and more importantly) to get the cartridge in and out ! There is NO need to twist, use two hands - it slips into position easily, with one hand - you push down the "lock", which, surprise surprise, LOCKS the gas cartridge in position, press the piezo electric ignition (nice touch) - and bingo ! It works ! We are cooking with Gaz (!!) Easy peasy !
NB - the Amazon photo, isn't of the very "latest, greatest" version of this. The change is tiny, having to do with making the pan support, simpler and more sturdy. Safer, as well, my view !
Another little mabrol, that does what it says on the tin, is not ridiculously "over-engineered" - but solid and looks like it may well see ME out !
So far folks, I give this 10 out of 10. BTW - be sure to get the GENUINE CamingGaz mabrol, NOT one of these cheap and nasty Chinese knock-offs.
Trust me, you won't regret the extra couple of pounds, for the genuine, well-made - SAFE - article !!
You don't have to buy campingaz canisters either so you can go for a cheaper non-brand version which does exactly the same job for less.
Strongly recommend it for just about anything, in my case, it is for Japanese jute production.
I advise for you to buy it along with the cartridges, it will be, at least, a fiver cheaper than buying the cartridges elsewhere.
The gas seems to empty quickly but they're much cheaper than the canisters I use on other stoves. I like the easy on off with the canisters too.
Wish I'd purchased it years ago.
It is quite bulky but it is also quite robust and handles an outdoor lifestyle well. It is quite powerful cooking bacon, sausages or boiling water in minutes and the temperature is easy to control. There are smaller camping cookers available but I always revert to this as a favourite due also to its stability on rough ground, large footprint and no chance of it blowing over.
It is well made and feels safe too - unlike some gas canister hobs. I also carry one in my campervan as a spare just incase I run out of bottled gas on a trip.
The base is quite stable. The flame is controllable from really low to kettle boiling temperatures. You could use camping pans, a mess tin or even a large domestic pot on it without any trouble. I have made stews and fry-ups with mine. It comes with a tough plastic carrying case which helps to keep the rest of your gear clean after a fry-up when you can't be bothered to wipe it down.
If you are planning a camping trip where you will be walking, cycling, mountaineering or motorcycling then you will need something smaller and lighter. I have the MSR Pocket Rocket for cycle trips.
This is a good-quality, cheap stove. You probably don't need anything more than this.
As far as reliability goes, my knock-off lasted over 20 years. Can't say anything for this because I've only recently bought it...
So we keep this just in case and last time there was 10 hour power cut for maintenance and this stove was a gift from the heaven then! So nice to be able to boil the water and nice to have a cup of tea. Heat performance is surprisingly well.
So compact, so lightweight, so easy to set, I don't need matches !
It's very light weight( which is positivething for me) so when you switch on and cook something, just be careful .
Definitely 5 star.
Trae un maletín, decente, para una escapada con mochila no vale, porque ocupa su espacio. Personas resto de situaciones perfecto: camping, para una quedada en el campo, como hornillo auxiliar en casa, etc.
A mi me ha gustado y sobre todo por solucionarme ese respeto a las bombonitas de gas que se enroscan y que siempre pienso que hay escapes de gas.
Si le ha servido de algo mi opinión, por favor, pulse "Útil", gracias. Este producto funciona muy bien
