Super light and super cheap. Works flawlessly after months of daily use. Best sub $20 purchase I have ever made for backpacking by far! So far very reliable and showing no signs of wear!
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.
No. It requires the 8oz can. Works great. I use mine in the kitchen and camping. I bought two
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.
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.
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...
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.…
Not sure I use this for camping only !
I used a large pot before camping, food turn out great. I am not sure about a wok.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes, just like a BBQ. We use ours all the time 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.…
I only leave mine outside when I go camping, but the corner seems to keep rain out. I love mine.
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.
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.
I would recommend camping stoves for frozen food. They are made to reheat on microwave.
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!
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...
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).
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!
