Partner Steel Stoves

I know lots of you guys love cooking/grilling as much as wheeling. While I was at Moab, I stopped by Gearheads and saw these stoves in the back.

Despite the name, they are made of very thick welded aluminum and have stainless steel grills. I've never heard of them before, but they seem to be made more robustly than any camp stove I've ever seen. Prices are reasonable and cheaper than some alternatives.

Anybody ever use them?

They are well known, well used, and well liked by the active-overlander and boating crowd alike.

Can't say, haven't been car camping in years…

They are too big for motorcycle camping, but should work for SUV camping, mini-van camping, and possibly car camping as long as the car is not too small.

You can even get an aluminum toilet.

That's what I use. But they are the Snow Peak of camp stoves, so I'm sure some on this forum will avoid them based on the name alone.

Yeah, the price was what blew me away. The flat-fold two burner was just over $200 and that was in a retail store.

I lifted it up and it was built like a brick outhouse. I have never seen a stove so burly before. They just seem like the kind of thing that you can throw around without worry and that is appealing.

I really like Coleman's stoves, but these were new to me.

But if you buy that, you likely won't be throwing it around.

For those with a Partner stove, how does it compare to a household range or a camp stove? My complaint with my camp stove is that it can get super hot (enough to make my cast iron dual burner grill pan to glow red), but can't get low without concentrating the heat in a small area.

Very effective control. Only thing I don't like is lack of pizo igniter. But those can be added easily.

I've got the Soto 2-burner stove, similarly built like a brick sh*thouse. It does suck loading/unloading it, but seems like it'll outlast me (and was in the $200 range).

That's interesting! What is that thing sticking out of the side of the stove?

I bought a Stansport Diamond Stove which is a Chinese knockoff of this stove. I have only used it once and I had to replace a pop rivet but at half the price I'm happy with it so far.

Top flips open, and there's a cutting board & storage underneath. I use it to store an aluminum griddle. It's on an open hinge so it just lifts off if you want to detach it.

We used Partner Stoves in the Grand Canyon when I was a River Guide. They are bomb proof. I went back down on a trip last summer with my family and they are using stove that are nearly 20 years old and still working flawlessly. These are used day in day out by many of the outfitters down there.

Out of all the chinese knock-offs I've seen, that is one of the most hilarious executions. It's such a simple design, I'm not surprised Good to see a bargain option around.

I've also noticed that Brunton resells (or used to resell) a rebadged Soto two-burner as a "Wind River Stove". Strange.
