User Review: Coleman Fyrestorm SS Stove
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 180 dollars
I've used both the propane/butane canisters and the white gas on this stove. The propane/butane canisters are easier to light but one goes through fuel fast (3 days on one canister), the white gas is more fuel efficent but the start up is a flame up experience that you need to warn other campers to stay away when when lighting it. It takes about 3 minutes to settle down to a steady flame but you won't be bothered by mosquitoes during this time.
- Multi fuel
- Moderate flame control
- Dangerous flame up when using liquid fuels
- Legs on propane holder break easily.
The setup is easy in both canister and liquid fuel usage.
However watch out in moving the support legs on the propane/butane canister holder, in very cold weather these can snap off easily.
Need the wind shield when cooking as flame goes out easily in the slightest of winds.
Can heat water realtively fast (6-7 minutes).
Packs easily and small.
The pots not always really stable on the burner unit.
I found it goes through the propane/butane canisters fast (3 days, 1-2 uses/day) while a 500 ml of white gas can last 4-5 days.
The Triangia Multi-fuel stove is probably a better stove due to the flame shielding and pot support. This however packs into a much larger size than the Coleman stove.
