My brother-in-law had an older version of this grill first. We are big on breakfast when we go camping and I tried his grill once with hashbrowns and my cast iron griddle. What a huge difference over trying to do hashbrowns over a single burner. Well, now I have one and it made the last camping trip a breeze. The two burner style stoves have their place but this single tube burner stove is excellent for making bacon, sausage, omelets, or anything requires more space than a pan or skillet can provide providing you have a solid griddle. The amount of space on the grill is excellent for larger meals. The removable drip pan in the bottom is a plus. The only con I find with the newer version is a much cheaper grill surface. On my brother-in-laws Coleman the grill is heavy like cast iron and you can put another griddle right on top of it. My newer version states right in the owners manual to NOT put another griddle on top of the supplied grilling surface. It's stamped sheet metal rather than cast and it will probably warp. Luckily, my griddle fits the stove rather well and I can take the sheet metal grill off. However, I am going to try and find a replacement cast grill like the older version had. As for the price, I'm not sure why this style grill costs so much more than a two burner stove. Four stars for the higher price and the cheaper grilling surface. It's very hard to find this in stores! We had to order ours.
