It works well

I love it cooks we'll holds a heavy pot filld with my camp fier style food gona get 2 more

Great little camping stove

This thing was a little power house. I took it on a coldish trip. It was 28 when I woke up. I was freezing but this started immediately and I had a nice hot cup of coffee in my cup within minutes. Great purchase!…

Best stove for the price

For the money, this is absolutely the coolest little camping stove you can buy.…Sticklers will bitch and moan about the quality, and nit pick about the smallest details all over YouTube, but it’s an $8.00 camp stove!…

Can you control the flame height?

Sure can, the knob controls the intensity of the flame just like any other camping stove. This one is really great, especially for the price. I’ve used this one all last summer, and it’s been excellent. It performs like any of the other more expensive camping stoves. You can’t go wrong with this one; unless you’re going to get into splitting hairs with things such as how long it takes to boil, wind proof or not, etc.

works great camping

I have used it on several backpacking trips. I have not had any issues.

perfect

…it fits inside my camp cup, works awesome.…

Decent value, not sturdy or even.

…But for an overnight camp or a weekend warrior, it’s a good value.

So Small That You Can Carry It In Your Dinner Purse

…Because the stove is so small you can easily forget it at camp so I especially like the bright color of the storages container.

Very compact and lightweight

…My husband and I used the camp stove.…

Great deal

…Day camp.

Great stove..even for inside use.

Great value and perfect sized for camping!!

Best camping hob ever

So easy to use - no fiddling with connectors or lighters - set up in seconds- envy of the campsite!

Worked great on our camping trip

We bought this for our camping trip this summer and it was great.…Used it every day of our week long camping trip.…

Does it work with standard Ace propane fuel can 16oz?

No. It requires the 8oz can. Works great. I use mine in the kitchen and camping. I bought two

How long will a can of butane last with this stove?

It all depends on how much you use it. I would estimate a good 3 hours of straight usage. Last me 3 days of making breakfast and dinner for me while camping.

Highly recommended

Excellent for camping burner plate

Stove

Excellent use camping

Great for basic camping needs!

Great for my camping trip in Hawaii!

How much weight can it hold? Can you give me example like if it is able to hold a cast iron or other heavy pans and pots without it denting.

It’s very sturdy. I’ve used my big cast iron pan when camping several times on it and my big canning pot for stew as well. No dents or scratches.

Can it be used inside?

This is our second one, we use them for camping, backyard cooking, power outages, emergency kit/ travel kitchen, for many Asian table cooked foods like hotpots, shabu shabu, stir fries... I enjoy cooking on it, it sits on the glass top stove with a vent above, windows 6' and 15' away on either side, and a comfortable cooking height. The fuel cans last longer if you do not open it 100% to cook, we find open about 75-85% works fine. In about 8 years we've never had a problem, nor during indoor cooking, has the co2 monoxide detector gone off. If you use it inside, make sure you have good cross ventilation, and a working carbon monoxide detector nearby. This uses oxygen, and can be dangerous if you don't have windows sort of across from each other, open slightly (we have them open about 1 to 1.5" in winter or rain, wider in summer, and if there's no wind, we have a fan, electric or battery) blowing out the closer window. Excessive? Not if you were almost killed by co2 poisoning when the furnace repairman didn't put it back together right and we had all the co2 coming into the house. Now our all electric house has a battery co2 detector. Hope this helps for uses & sadety...

Ready for hurricanes and camping.

Nice little stove works perfect a must have.

Perfect for camping gear

Tried and tested. Very quality item.

Perfect for camping

I have a small camper but hate to fry food (bacon, sausage, etc.) inside my camper. It's just too small and all the odors and grease get embedded in my camper's fabric, bedding and clothing. So this was my solution. Cook the fried stuff outside! It's lightweight, the color is super cute, the butane isn't expensive and it does the job.…

Is this practical to use as a primary burner for a kitchenette? And is the fuel affordable and accessible?

Not sure I use this for camping only !

Can a large pot or wok be used on this?

I used a large pot before camping, food turn out great. I am not sure about a wok.

Perfect for camping

It made my camping trip much easier

Great for camping!

This is a very good product. Very easy to setup and use. Been using for a couple months now. So far so good!

Great Camp Stove

I love this camp stove. It's compact which makes it perfect for camping!

What is the best canister to use? brand? can't find the coleman brand

I purchased "Butane Fuel GasOne Canisters for Portable Camping Stoves" found on Amazon for use with this stove. The stove works great and these fuel canisters will work fine with it.

Can this be used with a medium aluminum moka stove top coffee maker, 4-Cup - aprox. 3.6 inch diameter?

I have used it with my aluminum water carrier to heat water and my aluminum camp cook set too. Heats quickly. Do not use with a double wall container.

Perfect for camping

Compact and easy to use

Fast and easy camp fire...

Easy on and easy off for a nice camp fire. Only downer is you don't get the camp fire smell, but you also don't have to wait up till its completely out either. :)

Love this for camping

More and more campsites won't allow wood fires and this is perfect. Just hook it to a propane tank and you have instant heat. No more trying to start a fire in a wet fire pit. Easy to transport as well. I always get complements on this fire pit.

We would use this for camping, ie. long evenings (4-5+ hours). How long does a 20# tank last, if on Med to High?

I think a 20# tank would last for sure 2 nights or more on medium on 4 to 5 hour burn. I have not used it on high much as medium puts out a nice flame. I bought some Moda ceramic logs and used less of the rocks it came with. The Modas seem to make a better flame. When your ready to light it get some long tongs and mess around with the rocks or Moda logs to get the best flame. Great when camp fires are banned. Which has already happened in my area in Washington state. I got mine at Costco for $89.00.

Is the regulator built in to the on/off valve on the fire pit?

Yes, just like a BBQ. We use ours all the time camping.

GREAT for camping!

After buying many, many bundles of firewood at State park campgrounds that burns quickly, I decided to go this route. The heat output is surprisingly good. It's not as warm as a roaring wood fire but it keeps us warm. Also, it's nice for us and everything we own not to smell like smoke. It's really nice being able to turn your campfire on & off.…

Camp Fire!

Perfect size, perfect heat, perfect fun!

Works good for camping

Looks and works good at the camping spot.

Can I leave this out in the rain (on my balcony)? or must I cover it when not in use?

I only leave mine outside when I go camping, but the corner seems to keep rain out. I love mine.

Could you use this on an open wooden deck with a wooden lean-to style roof above (probably 9-10 feet high)?

You could with one precaution, add some type of metal cover on the deck to prevent possible overheating of wood. We recently used the unit on a camp out and it worked great.

Great survival/camp stove

Compact and efficient burns almost anything available. I use it for multiday kayak trips where small size is essential and it definitely fits the bill.

Small and reliable camp stove.

Perfect for heating campsite coffee pot. Packs well, small size and light weight. Produces heat for hours using smoker type wood chips. Do not try to move when hot.

Best Camping Purchase ever!

This is one of the BEST camping purchases I've ever made. …It rained for 4 or the 5 days we were camping so cooking would have been difficult if not for this lil' buddy. …I'm going to be giving these as Christmas gifts to all my camping friends.

ill be car camping for a few days. Will this re heat frozen meals like casseroles and such?

I would recommend camping stoves for frozen food. They are made to reheat on microwave.

How strong is it? Can it hold a 5qt cast iron pot?

It is likely strong enough, question is whether 3 support points would be stable enough. Camped with it over 2 nights this past weekend and boy does it bring the heat!

Impressive camp stove

Use to boil water and it works great. Good design and seems well made. Can go wrong for the price

Excellent Product for camping

I normally don't write the review but based on customer reviews I bought this product and it turned out to be a great product. Thanks to all the customers for their reviews. Best part about this product is its a good quality , cheap and easy to carry anywhere plus. I have not tried proper cooking till now but has used it for preparing noodles, tea , coffee etc.. and it does its job very well. Moral of the story - Excellent product go for it...

Great camping gear

Fantastic stove! Recommend you use wood pellets. Great service --- arrived early. Very happy!

Can I use Esbit 1300 degree solid fuel cubes with this?

Yes, it has a small alcohol dish that's meant to be used for various solid or liquid fuel alternatives. To use it just flip the burning base (insert tray with a diamond grill bottom for wood burning) upside down and set the dish on it so that it places the fuel just a couple inches below the cook pan/pot. There are several youtube videos reviewing this design of stove that may give you a better idea. One worth watching is titled "Ohuhu Camping Stove/ Backpacking Stove" (video: CmeidxJEa7A).

Would I be able to roast hotdogs or brats on this? I'd like to avoid making a campfire if possible

It is possible, but it would make your stove top and sides a greasy and sticky mess, not a thing to have in the wild with bugs and hungry critters. If you take along a small, lightweight fry pan, it can cook your food much cleaner and the pan can be easily wiped clean. Keep in mind this is a backpacking stove, small pieces of wood are used to create the heat; it is not a fire pit. Happy camping!
