Easiest to Clean Up (And Most Elegant)
Primus Tupike Stove
Primus’ Tupike stove is lightweight, compact, and well crafted. The cleverly made handle makes it easy to carry and pack. Also, it’s a good stove to cook on, due to its stainless-steel construction and simplicity of cleaning. With just 7,000 BTUs, it’s not the quickest at boiling water, but for low-heat cooking, it’s the best. Additionally, it does well in the wind, but the screens do at times flap around a bit.
Unfortunately, this sort of quality does not come cheap. You could go through four Coleman Classics for the price of the Tupike. Though, if money isn’t an issue, this stove is well worth the cost.
A Family-Size Powerhouse
Camp Chef Everest
Camp Chef’s Everest two-burner stove has two 20,000-BTU burners, almost double the output of the Coleman. That denotes less time spent boiling water and preheating pans. The Everest can simmer too, though it can be hard to find the balance between a smoldering flame and one that goes out with the first gust of wind.
The stainless-steel drip tray makes cleaning up simple. The spacious cooking area denotes you can fit big pans, making this a good choice for big families.
Stansport Outfitter Series
The Stansport Outfitter Series stove is family-size and practically the same as the Camp Chef Everest, but it’s blue. It has mightier 25,000-BTU burners, but the same stainless drip pan as the Everest and even the same form of stove grate. Though, the bars are nearer to each other over the burner, making it simpler to balance little cookware, such as a Moka pot.
The Stansport is well crafted and has a much cooler latch mechanism than the Everest. Yet, it’s difficult to justify the high price on latch alone. There is also a griddle and third burner that comes with the tool.
