The comforts of home – without breaking your back


If you like camping without roughing it too much, you probably like a stove to cook your meals.  You probably don’t want anything too heavy, because you have to carry it to the camp site.  The Coleman PerfectFlow InstaStart Fold N Go 2-Burner Stove gives you a spacious cooking surface in a package that folds up smaller than a briefcase.  The InstaStart push-button ignition doesn’t require matches, and the PerfectFlow System provides consistent fuel, no matter the conditions.  Each high-performance burner produces 10,000 BTUs, is independently controlled, and gives you a foot on each side so you have enough room to work in.   It’s great for other outdoor activities, like tail-gating, and it’s great to have in your emergency preparedness kit.  It’s $119.99 from Coleman.

  2. It folds, which is nice but I doubt it’s much lighter than a non-folding two burner stove.

    Not something you’d take back-backing. And if you’re not back-packing, the only benefit folding will have is less space in storage. You’ll still need a fairly flat place to sit it to use which means bringing a table specifically for it or camp somewhere that has a “picnic” table where you don’t need one end of it for people.

    Since about the only “plus” I can see on the practical side is that it takes less storage space I would pass on something like this. The more moving parts something has the more likely it is to break with use over time.

    There are other Coleman perfect-flow models that don’t fold, will likely last longer and wont take up a lot of space that I would rather get. And they’re significantly cheaper.
