User Review: Primus Express Stove without Piezo
Price Paid: $14
Object of this stove is small size but it runs on propane cans hard to get. IF you are a serious backwoods camper, stick with the liquid fuels like Coleman, kerosene or alcohol to save weight which can be carried safely in thin aluminum bottles.
My camp site has infrared heating, lighting, cooking and even refrigeration powered by 16 ounce propane bottles. 16 ounce propane bottle with small single mantle lantern and fly burner makes more sense. A simple frypan can boil or cook almost any food including 'microwavable' foods from the camp store.
TOAST requires a metal fork and patience....'Leggo my Eggo' waffle! Cooking breakfast in a cold morning tent means heat that you don't have from sleeping bag. Primus Express is just too small...trust me...I never burned a Thomas' English Muffin on a fork. WHY SUFFER?
