I purchased this stove for emergency use in our home should we loose all power. It works fine. One of the issues for me was burn time. I did my own experiments and came up with the following:

Boil time for (2 cups water) = 8 min on (Simmer) = 5.5 hrs burn time per canister.

Boil time for (2 cups water) = 4 min on (Low) = 3.5 hrs burn time per canister.

Boil time for (2 cups water) = 3 min on (Med) = 2.5+ hrs burn time per canister.

Boil time for (2 cups water) = 3 min on (High) = 2.0+ hrs burn time per canister.

While this is not a scientific test, it might give one a little more idea of how long they might can use a canister utilizing the above listed settings.

I got this stove to go camping with my mom. We are not really big campers(i.e. have no idea what we're doing) and needed something that would fit into our back packs. I chose this one because of the Coleman name and the low price. The place we went camping didn't allow fires only propane stoves and I didn't want to break the bank. It works great, it's very sturdy and can boil about 3 cups of water in about 2 or 3 minutes. We made coffee, eggs, all sorts of stuff. It's strong enough to hold a full size frying pan. Puts out a lot of heat. It's really easy to set up and light. Can't beat it for the price. I would recommend it highly. The only thing might be if it's very windy I don't know how well it would stay lit, but I didn't have that problem. It gets the suburban blonde girl seal of approval.

THIS WAS A LIFE SAVER DURING HURRICANE IVAN. EASY TO USE.

I COULD STILL HAVE MY COFFEE AND IT WAS GREAT FOR HEATING

SOUP AND SPAGHETTI O'S. SMALL ENOUGH TO STORE AWAY BUT

GREAT WHEN YOU ARE WITHOUT POWER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME

I purchased this in 1992 and use it regularly while camping today. It uses 16 oz short propane cylinder. The unit has two parts the base and the burner. No it does not include the first propane cylinder. You can buy them at most retail stores and sporting goods stores. They are very inexpensive,
The burner is very solid, the control knob has stepped setting so it doesn't drift while on. To use, simply turn the knob on the lowest setting and with a lighter or lit match near the burner it will lite. This unit puts out some heat. I can boil a pot of cold water in less than a minute.
A few years ago I was building a pine car for my Boy Scout at home. We ran into an issue with weight and needed a special sized piece of lead for the car. " What I did is highly dangerous and poison gas from lead can turn you into a Mad Hatter", I used a small cast iron pot and smelted lead with this coleman burner. Poured an ingot and used it in my sons Pinewood Derby Car. I used that same burner to make MacNCheese on our Camping trip last weekend. Purchased in 1992 still working in 2014, that's high high quality and I recommend this product.

When you don't want to tote along your BIG camp stove, this thing ROCKS. You'll have a hot cup of coffee in no time. It's foolproof. It's probably bulletproof. Simple, robust design, plenty of heat, a stable design -- this is an EXCELLENT tool.

The good news is this thing puts out a lot of heat. It will boil water faster for coffee than my power burner on my kitchen stove. It's heavy, tough, nicely chromed and finished and seems like a good value for the money.

So why the three stars? Well, it's the heat. You can't turn it down. The lowest setting is blasting enough to burn any kind of food you might be trying to cook, and the burner simply goes out below that. If you're just making coffee, this is like a jet engine. If you really need to cook something, it has some problems.

Coleman makes the best camping gear and this stove attachment is perfect for backpacking. Its lightweight and is wide enough (8 inches) to steadily hold any pot or pan. The regulator can be turned down very low and still not be blown out by wind. Easily attaches to Coleman propane containers and has a nice canister base that is also steady. You really don't need more than one of these for two campers. Cleans easily as well.

This is a great stove for camping. At first I was concerned about weight the stove would be able to stand, since tall items are usually unstable. This was not a problem. I was able to boil water on a percolator without a problem. I later boiled water in a regular sized pot and once again no worries about it tipping over. Other than the fact that you need a match to light it, the stove is great. Lighting it is simple and easy but of course I would prefer a matchless option. If it had a matchless option it would have go 5 stars from me.

This product is awesome!! I've been camping for years and have always built a fire to cook my food on. Now that I've been eating oatmeal for breakfast everyday, I wanted a quick way to continue to do this while camping without having to build a fire every morning for my bowl of oats. I used this and it was so easy and worked great! A canister of propane lasted me all week cooking breakfast every day along with most dinners. I can't wait to have this product quick at hand for the next time it rains during my camping adventures! Highly recommend this, worth every penny!

I purchased this to add a third burner so my girlfriend and I can make coffee while breakfast is cooking on the two burner stove.

Pros: This thing feels like it could support the back end of a 3/4 ton truck. It can crank out some serious heat.

Cons: I think it is unnecessarily overbuilt for its purpose and therefore much heavier than it should be, larger than it needs to be, and would have added too much extra weight to my camping kit. It looks like it could support a lot of weight but you wouldn't want that much weight sitting so high on top of a propane canister... too top heavy! Imagine just bumping the table and it falling over. The deal breaker was when I tested it at home I found the valve adjusts in detented clicks rather than continuously variable like my Coleman stove. The first click wasn't a low enough flame to use for rewarming coffee on my Snow Trek titanium mug. I had the same problem with a Coleman lantern I bought once where I couldn't get the valve to sit in a really low position to make the lantern burn really dim.
Summary: I returned this and found one on amazon for a little more money that was lighter and had a valve I could set to any amount of flame I wanted. Also, if I wanted one to heat up larger pots I would get one that sits on the table securely and has a hose to the propane tank.
