Gonna need a new stove this year, the old Coleman takes up too much space.

I'd like aluminum or stainless construction and adaptable to a larger cylinder. I dont have the coin to drop on a Brunton or Partner high end setup.

Looking at this Century stainless two burner with 12K burners. Amazon has it under $70 while REI and Cabela's list it at $82.

Any other suggestions or comments?

I have the Coleman Fold n Go. I like it.

I've only used it once, but it worked great.

Very compact.

Thats a nice single burner and lots of guys recommend it,but i need two burners. I have been using a GAZ backpacking single burner for over a decade and i find no need to replace it. It's served me real well.

It's compact, but i dont like the lack of windscreen and lower BTU rating.

I have this one and it works great, always goes with me. Another that I have and am extremely pleased with is this one from Coleman: http://www.coleman.com/coleman/colemancom/detail.asp?product_id=9922-A00&categoryid=27110&brand=

I carry a small MSR pocket rocket in my Jeep all the time and I love it when I'm cooking for myself but I like my big coleman for camping in a group.

i have the MSR dragonfly. cant wait to use it. i like the fact that its smaller then the jet boil and wider.

as far as a double burner, you could just get two dragonfly's and put them next to eachother :dunce:

I have a Century (not the all stainless one) and really like it.

Feels much more durable than the old Coleman's I used in Boy Scouts.

What Coleman do you have? That Century looks EXACTLY like my Coleman (it is about 6 years old) except the sides fold down instead of into the top. The Coleman is not stainless but I am wondering if they are not the same size?

I have the 425 converted to propane. Also have an older three burner.

I just checked the Coleman site for the one you have, i do like the adjustment knobs being more protected in the Coleman vs Century, but the Coleman has a slightly lower BTU rating. The Coleman is also cheaper.

A friend has the Century i linked to in my original post, cleaning of his was 10x easier than the 425.

It has worked great but the Stainless is a nice option for just a little more money.
