Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric Great camping stove
We've used the stove for multiple meals on two camping trips already and are very happy with it.
The only tricky part is getting the burner temp right, the dial starts On at low and goes to high within a 1/4 turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyFisher Saved a washed out Memorial day
We've all been there, you save up for that big outdoor vacation, make the reservations 6 months in advance, and then when you get there, it rains for 4 out of the 5 days you're there. That's the risk you take, but we made the most out of a bad situation. What made things worse though was that our cabin's kitchenette had no vent, and the grill outside was a good distance away with no shelter. No way to cook = no way to feed a starving family...not good.
So daddy got on google maps, found the closest Dick's and raced out there to pick up this camping stove which I'd had my eye on for some time anyway. I picked it up with 2 1lb propane tanks and raced back to the cabin. It set up and worked flawlessly and contrary to what I had thought, there is a little flame control. If I had to describe it, think of 10 knob positions from low to high. Position 1 is low, position 2 is a little hotter, then positions 3 - 10 are flame thrower. Not a big issue, but it took some fiddling around positions 1-3 to find the right heat so I didn't burn the burgers.
Half a tank went about 20-30 minutes so stock up on those, but at a couple bucks, they won't put a huge dent in your bank account. There is also a coupler you can buy to hook this up to a 20lb tank, but that's a review for another day.
The unit is packable, it's simple to set up - we were cooking inside of 5 minutes from the moment I got home. We paired this up with a Lodge double sided cast iron griddle which fits like a glove on this burner and allows you to cook a lot at one time.
For the price, the value and quality couldn't be beat. The flame control could be better but for the price what can you expect. This burner saved what would have been a complete washout of a vacation so yes, color me extremely pleased with this purchase.

The product is perfect for our use, i.e., fishing, hunting, looking forward to use during harvest time.

Not impressed with the heating functions. Thought there would be a low & high, it acts like it is just always on high

Rated 5 out of 5 by 123on the go Finally had to buy another one.
Hurricane Sandy is heading our way and I took out our old Coleman stove to be sure if it still worked. Well, it didn't. I can't believe it lasted only 40 years. Went right to Dick's and bought the last one on the shelf. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StevenBo Could not be happier!!!!!!
This little stove does it all and is very compact and lightweight for car or boat camping - worked great over labor day in the Adirondacks! Heats up quickly! I would buy another if I lost this one...you won't be disappointed.
