My brother and his wife invited me to go camping with them. They said they had just bought a camp stove, and that I wouldn't need to bring mine. Yes, there is such a thing as wanting to save some money if you're on a tight budget, but sometimes you do get what you pay for. This camp stove was a complete JOKE! Just like others had mentioned, it worked fine the first time we used it. After that, it worked very inconsistantly. The burners wouldn't stay lit, and when they would finally light, the flames were inconsistant. One minute the burners would barely hiss and you couldn't even see the flames, the next minute, WHOOSH! All this without making any adjustments to the control knobs. It finally quit working altogether. At first we thought maybe the propane tank was empty. We swapped the tank with a new one, but had the same problem; We couldn't get it to stay lit. So we settled for potato chips and cookies instead of a cooked meal. I'll take my old, trusty Coleman gas camp stove any day over this piece of garbage. I'm glad this was just a simple weekend camping trip, and that we brought snacks along, otherwise we would have been very hungry. My advice is when it comes to camping gear, don't go with the cheapest thing you can find. Spend the extra money and invest in some reliable gear.
