Many in my circle of friends have the cheaper style of butane stoves. I have a Coleman branded one. I waited for the right time, and it was less than $15 on Amazon. I live in a rental house, that has one of those glass top electric stoves. I hate it to the point that I got a two burner butane stove for daily use. And if you shop around, the butane can be had for cheap.


No one has mentioned this, but butane doesn't work in the cold. A friend lives on a 38' sailboat. His stoves don't work somewhere below 45 degrees or so.

Shuttlepilot noted that butane does not vaporize at 33F, and his graph shows temps at which various gases and mixtures vaporize. Good stuff that I did not know.

I have the Iwatani and agree with others that have positively commented on it.

I recently purchased the GasOne Dual Fuel to replace our two burner Coleman. As we already carry propane for our Blackstone Propane Griddle and our Little Buddy Heater. I like having to carry only one fuel type. I picked the GasOne because of the BTU's, and it has not failed to impress. Primarily use it to heat water and make coffee, both of which it can do quicker than any stove I've ever had, including at home.

One of the nice things about any of these little stoves is ease of storage. I built a cubby in my drivers side rear door to store it in, of which I just realized I never took a picture of. Here's a picture of my buddies van door which is very similar to mine.

I have a GasOne butane single burner and experienced butane freeze up this past winter.
Sooooo, just pulled the trigger fir their 8k dual fuel.
As mentioned above, I also prefer two one burners vs one dual burner

My Gas One with a Coleman Oven worked good for biscuits while camping this week.

I have gone to exclusively dual-fuel devices. I have a stove and a lantern (and a backpacker's stove) that use standard gasoline from the gas station.

The reason for this is two-fold: first, I always carry at least five gallons of gasoline on my rear bumper. Second, fuel from the sporting good store (e.g. Coleman) can cost upwards of $20/gallon ($10 for a half gallon can).

The stove running on standard gas is a bit annoying because the stove typically gives off a bit of black smoke which can put black streaks on the bottom of your pots and pans; this is because it is not as highly refined as the Coleman fuel. But the stains come off easily during washing.

FYI, while expensive, that "can" is one gallon. Coleman sells that, and plastic quart bottles of fuel.
