2 Burner Camp Stoves

I'm shopping for something to use on some longer trips. I am leaning towards this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Any experience good or bad?
What are you using?

Of all the trips we have done we had one Coleman 2 burner stove top, 40 something dollars, get a five foot hose and a 15 pound bottle, as the small bottles ones always seem to run out when you need it most. Push button ignition systems break

I have had a Coleman 3 burner for over 20yrs. I think i got it at Target. Still works great, so it hasn't been replaced.

I've had a number of stoves and various other cooking devices. I'm a big fan of my Partner Steel Stove. It works as well at 10k plus altitudes as it does at 5k. I've eliminated everything else I used to bring along for cooking or warming water. I run it on either a standard propane tank or the 1lb bottles (with an adapter).

IMHO, I prefer the liquid 'Coleman fuel' type stoves. Though the instructions say don't use auto gas, regular unleaded works just fine.

If you really are remote, it's easier to 'borrow' a quart of gasoline than propane.

If they ran on diesel I would be all over that. Trying to stick to propane or butane.

Our Defenders are diesel too. Do you have any other propane or butane equipment? If not, you are carrying stove specific fuel with any choice.

Carrie and I have used an MSR Firefly stove for 15 years (love it!) MSR sells a diesel jet for it, we've not tried it. This is a tiny backpacking stove, don't know if they offer a two burner diesel.

I have a ~ 25 yd old Primus 2-burnner camp stove still works like new. Even survived a few years of my son's scouting. Use my Jetboil single burner and accessories when hiking in.

Be sure to look at the Coleman offerings as well. They have versions with the burners on an easy cleanable surface. If you are going on extended trips, easy cleanup is a big plus.

Depending upon your cooking style and space you might want to look at the satinless 2 burner stove with oven built under the burners. It opens up a lot of possibilities when grocery shopping such as ready to bake pies, pizzas, heat & serve breads, stew, and any number of baked dishes.

I picked up a Camp Chef Oven at a bargain price in a sports store in Rocky Mount last year. Robert Davis had one and I always kidded him about it until I got one. It's a bit bulky but does a great job with two top burners and a 'bake only' oven. The only problem is controlling oven temps as the low setting is higher than the the control knob states. I also own a Primus two burner and a few old Coleman stoves of various size (those are liquid fueled but I converted one to propane). It's all about how rustic you want to live, space allotment and fuel source. If I was relegated to a D90 or D1 solely I'd lean to something compact. Since I don't anticipate traveling the China/Pakistan border anytime soon limited cargo isn't a concern. I'll just keep dragging my M101cdn camping trailer with all it's amenities from event to event.

We have a camp chef oven stove combo.
Works like a champ.
They have good products.

I have an older two burner Primus that has been awesome, the pizo striker still works. If i was in the market currently it would most likely be the camp chef everest. It looks very similar to my Primus. I also have a primus grill while a bit finicky it does a decent job unless things are super greasy. it was too cheap not to buy on Sierra Trading post.

prior to this the only stove i had used were my MSR Dragonfly/whisperlight and white gas coleman stoves.

x2. I resisted propane for years, and relied on liquid stoves that had to be primed and all that. F' that. When it's time to cook, no fussing about. I'm sold on propane for good.

I've had a partner steel for years and they are bomb proof. the only thing i wish they had was piezo electric ignitors, but those can be added. I have an 11lb tank on the back of my truck and the partner steel in a pull out drawer, The propane lasts forever.

That's my setup for green oval overlanding. Coleman or pizza delivery is just fine for weekend car camping. Can O' Beans on the manifold is all you need for black oval trips.

Started out with a normal tw burner, but ended up with a single burner/grille combo. Just more convenient when camping solo. If there are more than just me, its two burner and hibachi.

Too funny. That is how I used to heat up my food when I was stationed in North Dakota guarding missile silos

Coleman 2 burner.

Go propane. Two little bottles can last all week, assuming using it for breakfast and dinner (or at least my experience). No problems at 10,000ft or whatever altitude we were camping at. Super easy to use.

I've got a white gas Coleman. Bought it off Craigslist for $30. In very nice shape. Its been pretty awesome over the past few years. The nice thing is I can fill up the tank and it'll last all weekend. No need to carry extra fuel.

So yeah, just get one of the coleman offerings 2nd hand. And if you don't like it, you can sell it for what you've got in it.

I've been using the same old Coleman 2 Burner since my days in Cubscouts. I bought a kit off amazon a few years ago to run propane instead of white gas. The 2nd burner has never been as hot as the main but never had an issue cooking.

I like Rob's Partner Steel. More compact than my coleman and great build quality. Whenever I have some extra cash I will be getting one.
