User Review: Coleman 533
Price Paid: £40
If you are a weekend walker, I agree, buy the compressed gas stoves that litter the top of this stove review list. If however, you are spending time in places where 'mom & pop' camping stores are a little harder to come by a multi-fuel burner is essential.
If you are going out in nice summer conditions where you can prime a stove in a well ventilated area where the wind gently kisses the summer flowers and lazily wafts their sweet scent past your nostrils, I again agree, buy a Primus.
If however you can not be certain of either, then Coleman products are best by a long way. No priming, will light in a tent or in windy conditions and give a strong adjustable flame. The 533, 422 and even the expensive Fyrestorm will do you well in pretty much all circumstances you can throw at them.
My one criticism is that Coleman could do with improving quality control as too many products seem to leave the factory with glitches. When you get yours test it at home. If it does not light first time, has a weak flame or appears temperamental in any way, send it back, because when you get a good one you won't look back!
