First and foremost, no matter how much or how little I pump, I find it difficult to regulate the flame so that it is the desired "blue jet" with no yellow. I understand there are many factors in play here; fuel temp and pressure in the canister, and outdoor temp and pressure being chief among them. Getting and keeping a blue cooking flame is definitely more art than science (though you do have to understand the science). I understand this finicky problem is common to all "thumb pumped" camping stoves, though.
Second, even with the desired flame, be aware there are going to be hot spots on your skillets or griddles. It does not provide even heat; the burners are definitely localized. So you'll need to cook accordingly or you'll end up with burned bacon in some spots, and undercooked bacon in other spots. Again, this criticism could be leveled at any number of camping stoves. In my opinion this is just par for the course when you're cooking outdoors in the middle of nowhere; Just bear in mind that, as a mindful chef, you'll have to adjust for this.
Third, I always end up with blackened cookware. I think this is probably unavoidable using any direct-flame hydrocarbon-fueled cooking method. So be aware that if you care how your pots and pans look, you'll be spending some time with steel wool on the bottoms of your cookware when you get home.
Lastly, I don't find it boils water all that quickly, even on the large burner with a great flame. A 12-cup pot of coffee water can take 20 minutes or longer in the morning. Granted, I live in New England and the water, having sat out all night, probably starts around 40-50 degrees F. So, perhaps your mileage may vary if you're in a warmer climate or making a smaller pot of coffee.
Having laid out those criticisms, I love the design and layout of this stove. The wind shields are a thoughtful addition, and they do make a difference. It has plenty of room for all my cookware, including the cast iron griddle. I even like the way it looks, as it reminds me of the camping stove my father and grandfather had. Sometimes, traditional is the way to go.
I also love that it's convertible to gasoline or, with the right fuel pipe, (sold separately), propane. (In fact, it's possible that many of my above criticisms would improve if I converted it to propane, which I do intend to try at some point.) That versatility is definitely a comfort, even if right now all I'm doing is burning the "white gas". Last but not least, I appreciate that it's made, or at least assembled, in the USA. I know Coleman does a lot of foreign manufacturing, but it's nice that some of their products are still made with on-shore resources.
The bottom line is that I would buy this stove again. I like knowing that it's in my garage, ready to be grabbed in the event of a power outage or an impromptu camping trip.
I just gave it its first usage out in the wilderness. I cooked bacon, eggs, and hash browns while car camping far from civilization. I only needed to fire up one burner, and I made the tragic mistake of having no way to dispose of my bacon grease other than wadding it up with paper towels and putting the paper towels in the garbage back. But it cooked fine. I also used the slightly smaller model that someone else had brought for water boiling and it worked well too, despite also being a new model. I hope to use it many more times!
While the construction of this stove isn't bombproof its good enough and I expect this stove to last a long time. My only gripes are that the tube from the fuel tank to the stove was crooked so I had to bend it to the right position and that the tank didn't sit firmly in the slots. This was rectified by bending the fuel tank tabs downward to a sharper angle and its fine now. Yes, it should come perfect out of the box but if you can't deal with small tweaks like this you probably shouldn't be using a white gas stove anyway.
Two years later and the stove is still working awesome. I saw a much older coleman in a pawn shop and it had the same thickness and stability of metal as this one.
Order received in good condition with no damage, pulled it out of the box and set her up. Lit on the first try, then boiled 36 oz of water in my coffee pot in 3 minutes 26 seconds.
Have used the stove twice since purchase and it preformed great, able to use two 12" skillets at once and my cast iron grill fits perfectly.
Now to give my humble answer to some items from the negitive reviews.
Gauge of metal: measured thickness of metal with calipers on both old and new units and the gauge is the same.
Poor lighting and fire issues:
When used properly have had no issue's with either, remember these stoves use atomized fuel that is highly flammable! If you do flood the unit, turn off and relite per instructions.
I hope that this review was helpful.
