|Power Per burner||
A good all-around stove for car camping. It's easy to set up and has features that make it easy to use. We take it camping and it does well cooking for our family of four.
- Igniter, simmer control, and 10,000 Btu burner are great.
- It's more compact than other similar stoves—good for packing.
- Pricier than what we were coming from (Ozark Trail? unbranded?) at about 3x cost.
- Hard gas line requires extra table space
- It's more compact than other similar stoves—we can't fit our big pan on with most other things.
Midway through a camping road trip our prior camp stove gave up, and we scoured high and low for a replacement, finding the last one available—the Eurekea Ignite.
We're usually budget campers, and this was a higher quality and higher price point than our typical gear purchase, although it's certainly not the most expensive two-burner you can buy. Here's what we love about moving up to the Ignite, and why we won't be going back to whatever the lowest price big box store stove is.
First, we love the simmer control. We use an antique percolater for coffee and getting the right (low) heat once it starts to boil is critical. Second, we like the piezo igniter—we always thought it was unnecessary before, but it's really super convenient. Third, it's about 3 inches shorter than our last one, and fits right in on top of our kitchen box—a regular Sterilite storage, which makes putting the whole kitchen in the car even easier.
The only downside is our big fry pan doesn't fit on with most other medium size pots. Eureka does make a wider version of this stove (Ignite Plus). This is a simple, well-made stove and we expect to be using it for a very long time.
We had a big box brand stove that was slowly falling apart, and which we threw away when the flexible propane connection caught fire.
