5.0 out of 5 stars Called Powerhouse for a Reason, June 29, 2007
This review is from: Coleman 2-Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Liquid Fuel Stove (Sports)
This stove is big, but well worth our money. It accommodates two full sized skillets at once. It boils water in a jiffy, lights easily and burns clean. We cooked under a canopy with ample overhead ventilation with no problems. No odor or discoloring our pans. I loved that the stove's bottom didn't get more than warm when cooking. We used it with a plastic table cover under it with no problem. It stayed lit in very windy conditions. As advertised, the auxiliary burner is less powerful than the main, but was still plenty hot enough to cook on its own. Downsides? Size if you're not car camping. It's the size and weight of a large briefcase, and even larger when in the box. Another issue: in broad daylight, it was difficult to tell if the burner was still lit -- quickly passing a hand over the burner was sufficient to answer that question. To light the auxiliary burner you must briefly turn the main burner up to medium or higher -- tricky if you're already cooking something on low over the main. Finally, it is difficult to empty the fuel tank of extra fuel when packing up, though it can be stored with fuel. We consider these minor detractions. Bottom line: the stove performs great and we love it and recommend it.
