Re: Portable butane stoves on advrider

That looks well made, but aren't they about that price or less on Amazon? Do you have experience with this certain one?

Thanks

No, I just linked it here in case anybody was looking for one. I don't see a lot of spam on advrider, good chance its legit.

Big 5 sports store chain seems to have a single burner butane stove for sale at the same price as above, every couple of weeks. Easy to just drive in and pick one up when on sale.

That is the regular, in-store price of the Coleman labeled version at Walmart.

Re: Portable butane stoves on advrider

What is the advantage of one of these types of stoves over a 1-2 burner propane stove? How easy is it to find butane canisters?

They burn clean, safe to use inside the van. Propane emits co2, not safe for inside the van unless you are venting well.

They're easy to find as long as you're in a Big 5. Nobody else seems to sell them as far as I can tell.

As far as cooking, they cook hotter. They cook better in inclement weather, and seems to use less fuel. In addition those butane canisters store much smaller and don't leak (unlike every propane bottle I've ever unscrewed). They store disconnected within the unit (at least in mine) which is possibly safer. The bottles are so easy to change it doesn't even affect your cooking.

In any case I'd take two of the butane stoves over a double burner propane any day (in fact that's what I use- one for 90% of my meals and cooking and a second for when I need double pots). They do run slightly hotter or colder depending on the manufacturer/year. Mine are probably close to being from different decades and the newer one is like a rocket stove, in fact it's nearly impossible to turn down enough for certain cooking. The older one is closer to a traditional propane, I can turn it down fine but it doesn't hold up in the really strong winds as well.

You sure? According to the interweb-thingy, they both have CO2 and H2O as products of combustion when completely burned and some CO when not completely burned.........
