Portable Gas stove, I like it.

I bought this Gas One portable butane stove 3 years ago and really like it. The gas is cheap, it lights automatically, flame height is easily adjustable and its inexpensive. We use it outside when frying smelly things to keep the Scamp odor free. I have used everything from the Swedish Svea 123, to Coleman white gas stoves thru our Scamp's propane stove. I think I like this $18.00 Gas One the best. I seem to get about 2 hours of run time from a $2.00 butane can. I buy the fuel at my local Asian food store. You can see it at Amazon by clicking this link. There are dozens of these stoves on the market, mostly from Korea. They all seem to use the same fuel cans no matter the brand.

What's your favorite portable stove?


Happy cooking, john

I've used these for many years. I used to place butane stove on the propane stove in my tent trailer to boil water for morning coffee. It was twice as fast as propane.
A caution though. Don't place an oversize pot on the burner or it will heat up the butane canister, which can blow up ( proven by my daughter and son-in-law ).
I replaced that one with a top of the line Iwatani. Made in Japan. Used by the restaurant industry. Built in wind screen. Expensive ( note that's the Canadian price ).

my favorite is my JetBoil, which I use purely to boil water, mostly for coffee, but also for other things (cup o noodles, etc).

for more substantial outdoor cooking, we have one of these,

To me, it seems like one more gizmo to haul around. Other than grilling (which makes smoke) outside, I cook inside. All my utensils, pots and pans, seasonings, butter, etc are inside already, and when I tried cooking outside (on sterno) I kept having to go back inside, over and over, to retrieve this or that.... and again to put it all away afterward.

But for those of you who enjoy heating stuff up outside and have a system down pat, I'm happy for you.

We almost always cook outside. I have a two burner Napoleon BBQ so I can cook direct ( grilling ) or indirect. I have two butane single-burner stoves for frying or boiling. I have a 5 gallon water container and a stainless steel 'sink' for washing up.
Inside, I have a three-burner propane stove that's used for making coffee in the morning.

I also have a Gas One, but the model is GS-3400 P also available from Amazon. The 3400P allows you to run it with a 1 pound disposable propane cylinder as well as butane.

I have never cooked anything in my trailer. Always outside. With five kids, the trailer always seems crowded, or too hot. Either way, cooking outside makes sense to me. The awning comes in handy when it is raining.

One of those came with our Campster. Canisters can be ordered from Amazon. I have a hard time locating them locally.

The first time we used it was to heat a large pot of soup, probably 3 gallons. It did the job and lasted 3 or 4 hours until the soup was gone.

Ours is a different brand but they are all made by the same manufacturer (South Korea, as i recall) per the help desk for ours. Great little stove.

I have tried many different camp cooking appliances. I only heat soups in the microwave, and boil water/coffee on the stove, never cook anything inside the Casita.

Outside have tried many stoves. Currently have a (Amazon) Blackstone Portable Table Top Camp Griddle, which I have cooked on at home, now want to try on the road. Very heavy. Also will be trying a (Amazon) Coleman Guide Series Powerhouse Dual Fuel Stove this camping season. I have always wanted to try to cook on one but have always had a propane stove. Years ago I used to have a propane powered Primus/Optimus(?) three burner camps stove, cream green and yellow/cream colored, but I did not appreciate it. When I tried to buy a new one they are no longer made. It was a work of art. I recently had a Stansport 3 burner, but it was flimsy, and gave it to Goodwill.

I also have a (Amazon) Volcano 3. Works well, but also very heavy and has a lot of fidgety parts. I keep it around, just don't use it much. I also will be taking an electric griddle (for campgrounds with electricity) and a electric single burner hot plate and Coleman Stove Dual Fuel 533 for back up. And a (Amazon), Texsport Heavy Duty Over Fire Camp Grill, just in case I ever have a campfire (don't do, but who knows...).

I just hope the Coleman 2 burner gas fuel stove works well.

We bought one of these last year to replace our bulky Coleman propane stove. It works great inside and out. I am adding another..

I'm with you, Mike. I always cook inside with the tools nearby. We don't seem to grill, just keep it simple with pots, pans and a toaster oven, if on electric service. I also use the Coleman Oven on top of the Compact's stovetop.

I've always wondered about those butane stoves, though. They look more compact than the usual Coleman camp stove. Probably good to have if it's too hot to cook indoors.
