When we do some family camping/ car camping, I will always bring the old but still working Coleman Dual Burner stove number 425 F.
It was made many moons ago and still works just as when it came out of the factory. It is green in color with a heavy aluminum frame, 2 burners with one generator positioned on top of the right burner The generator is part of the fuel canister that is removable).
The fuel canister is red in color, removable, and stores inside the stove while in transport. The stove has a thick stainless steel grill over the burners and has hinges to fold upwards as well. The lid of the stove folds upward and opens much like a suitcase does. 2 green in color wings (which are attached to the inside of the lid) fold outward once the entire lid is extended upward away from the burner.
The wings serve as wind shields. Unfortunately, they have not performed as well in the wind blocking department.
You would prime the stove much in the same way as other liquid burners by pumping the fuel canister that hangs off of the front portion and extends over the right burner over it and into a portal at the rear of that burner. Turn the fuel knob on the top right portion of the fuel canister to fire it up. The left burner has a similar fuel knob as well (it is on the outer left side of the stove).
Once the priming is done, fired up for a minute, the flame will turn blue. It is ready to cook. You can use both burners simultaneously, simply by turning the left burner fuel knob clockwise and igniting it. I have found that it takes longer to cook with both burners going at the same time versus just using the right only.
It will simmer exceptionally well and sometimes I will put on a large pot of water on the left burner to begin the heating process while cooking on the right. When I am done cooking on the right, I will transfer the left to the right and continue on.
It works for the whole family. Old but still useful and I don't have to lug it around on my back either.
