The PerfectFlow technology will keep the heat steady, and you'll use less fuel too thanks to the Perfectheat technology.

The pot supports help shield your cooking flame from the wind, while the large eight-inch burner bowl should fit most any pot. This Coleman one-burner stove can boil a quart of water in just four minutes! This stove operates on one 16.4-ounce cylinder of Coleman propane (not included).

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.
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.
I had one of these things but I cannot locate the thing anywhere so when Hurricane Irma headed towards Florida I hurried and ordered another one. Thankfully, the hurricane did not hit the part of Florida I live in, the panhandle.
My old stove got me and my late father through the hell that was Hurrican Ivan which did hit here in September of 2004. We did not have power or drinking water for the better part of the week and half the trees were knocked down. Our roof lost every other row of shingles, the storm windows blew out with loud bangs, and the siding of our house, which my neighbor, John, returned to me as a joke, blew three blocks down the street.
Dad and I did have hot coffee and hot meals, though, and we did have plenty of water since I am a home winemaker and had filled my six six gallong fermenter spigot buckets up to the brim.
I also have a two burner, Coleman propane stove around someplace but I cannot find that either. I used this stove once or twice before deciding the single burner was more than sufficient for coffee, tea, or dinner. We ate chilit mostly, Hormel with no beans with two cans of Bush's chili beans thrown in.
With this stove, you do not have to go through the routine of putting soapy water on the joints to check for gas leaks. There is only one connection. If it does hiss when you screw it on it means the valve is open so you just rotate it.
To light it, just open the valve a bit until it hisses and light it with a match or butane lighter. You turn it down or up or off with the valve.
In case you are not familiar with propane torches, the gas coming out makes the connection near the tank icy cold to the point that frost starts to form. No kidding. Frost will form because it is the same principle that makes your refrigerator work. I said torch mind you. I did not let the burner run full blast. The flame might eventually hurt the cooking grid part though it seems very sturdy.
I think they have improved this burner a bit since my old one and, if I ever find the old one, I will compare the two.
A word about liquid fuel stoves. A Wal Mart add for a dual fuel stove said the Coleman dual fuel will burn over four times what's in a cylinder per gallon. This is a no brainer though since the cylinders only contain a bit over sixteen ounces of liquid and the gallon has 128 ounces.
The also used to make endless jokes about liquid fuel gasoline stoves blowing up and sending people to heaven when I was little.
The straight line gases in order from lighest to heaviest are: methane, ethane, propane, and butane. After this you get gasolines followed by mineral spirits, kerosenes, fuel oils, and paraffins like Vaseline and tars.
Methane and ethane, often called natural gas, are not liquids at safe pressure. Propane is a liquid at about 15 atmospheres of pressure. The stuff in your little bottles is a liquid and not a gas. Butane is liquid at about the pressures you find in soda or beer bottles. This makes butane ideal for plastic lighters though it is more expensive normally than propane per ounce. Natural gass, of course, is cheap but an actually cylinder of gas, as opposed to liquid, would give you very little cooking time. They do use gas gas in city vehicles but the things do not have a great range per charge.
So: if you live in hurricane country or like to camp, this and other Coleman products are very nice. I do give it five stars.
Being propane this is instant on & heating. The flame is adjustable from just a little to 'hey lets boil water as quick as possible' full blast. Another added bonus is it cools off quick. In the 70 seconds it took to strain my cowboy coffee this unit was cooled down and ready to be broken apart and put away- so that's 'cool'.
Problem: When I got it one of the 4 metal tabs that holds the pot over the flame is loose and comes off. Looks like it was just pressed into place. Has anyone fixed this with something like JB Weld?
Another future Improvement would be to have the two pieces Nest together better when not in use. But factoring that you have to have the propane tank too I guess it's not going to be that space-efficient regardless.
I found a good carrying case for it.
Sterilite Ez carry plastic container
9.5x8x6.8. I got it from target but you can get it pretty much anywhere from $4-$5. fits the stove and base by itself perfectly.
