The model I have I have had since 1999. I have traveled with it from Texas to Alaska and back, to Florida and back to Alabama and back to Georgia and back, to new York and back, to California and back, camping all along the way, it has not failed me yet. Took it to Yosemite National Park and many Texas state parks, it has not failed me yet. The only maintenance I had to do on it was to replace the O ring.

Perfect for family camping or emergencies.
I've used Coleman stoves for more than 35 years. This one is reliable, sturdy, easy to use, clean and maintain. This little stove takes up minimal space and is compact and easy to transport.

Had to get a new because old one on it's last leg after 12 years. Best investment ever and quick and easy set up! Even made a cover for it so it won't get rained on out of an piece of plywood laying around.

Bought this stove for our big fishing trips. The unit works great, as advertised and fairly easy to set up. One BIG thing to know, like all open burner stoves, the wind kills it in open areas. In an enclosed area or with a plywood wind break, this unit is great.

Ham…Bacon…Pork Roll…Sausage Links Griddle

BEST PORTABLE GRILL EVER!!!!
I am a huge fan of portable grills cause I love to grill everything everywhere. This thing has everything. The surface distributes heat perfectly, easy to clean, fold up to cary, and I can cook anything I want with the different surface pates. Nothing else out there like it. One small gas can will cook 50-100 meals. Price is amazing.... I use this thing to cook dinner over my weber now :) I just can't believe this thing is only $99
