Considering the design hasn't changed in yonks it's really good. And sharing the fuel with the Northstar lantern means no bottles and wastage and bulk.
I have the bigger three burner Coleman dual fuel stove and its still going strong after over over 30 years of use. But it won't fit my new slide-on camper so I have to downsize to a 2 burner. Pity, but there's no way I'd ever go back to gas. They burn hotter, don't smell and are are no worse than anything else in the wind. And a helluva lot more convenient than lugging around a gas bottle when traveling and even better in the bush. I'm looking forward to the new one.
I'm really surprised that someone said this is useless in the wind. I've been using one for at least 40 years and one of the reasons I like it is because it works in all conditions, wind, rain, cold, hot. Heats quickly and frankly, easy on the budget. Not sure why some have said it uses a lot of fuel because I've found one fill will last me for breakfast and dinner for at least 3 days. Just got back from Friday-Monday Easter weekend and filled it once. Biggest problem I find with it is that sometimes it tends to create a lot of soot.
This cooker to me is a waste of your money.Yes it is easier to carry the fuel but it is more expensive than a Gas cooker , and it uses a lot of fuel.Also it is usless in the wind .
Sorry to hear that Trevor - this has been rock-solid for us over a long period of time, so it comes as a bit of a surprise. In regards to the wind issue, have you considered a wind shield? Laine
Had trouble with needle valve getting stuck in jet, repaired myself, I now know how to clean generator assembly, its not that hard, excellent stove in windy conditions, speedy delivery from Snowys, very happy
I've wanted one of these for the last 8 years, finally bit the bullet. Excellent service from Snowy's, getting the stove out to me from SA to NSW in less than 48 hours. Great price too.
This stove is a beast! It's got massive power for searing and wok cooking, even in the wind, but it can also run a flame small enough to do absorption method rice. What more could you want? Oh, and it's very fuel efficient, and hardly requires pumping after the initial juice up. I've done a slow cook casserole and didn't touch the pump in 3 hours. BUY IT, and get a liquid fuel lantern to go with it!
Just love these stoves. Even though we have a gas stove in the caravan, for outdoor cooking this is the way to go. Our older one was a 3 burner and did very well too but would not fit in the outdoor table that comes with the new 'van. No way we wanted a gas BBQ, so this was the ideal choice for us!
I've had my stove for over 25years and it's been out standing.The old one is just giving up now,will replace with another one.Gas stoves don't work well in cold but these dual fuel stoves power on threw the cold.The single burners are fantastic as well.
Use this for overnighters on the boat where wind can be a problem. The design of the burners being below the casing is very good and the wind shields work well. One minus point is that although it is ok to use unleaded it is not recommended because of the poor standard of fuel that leaves residue causing problems down the track. I will stick with Coleman fuel of Shellite.
great stove , works very well, no more gas bottles.
Is Opal Fuel OK to use in the cooker as in some communities that is all they have.
I had absolutely no idea of this so I gave Coleman themselves a buzz to find out. They said that you can use Opal Fuel on the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove but that they don't recommend it as it burns dirtier than regular unleaded. If you're in a pinch, feel free to use it but they wouldn't recommend making a habit of it.
Do you sell a cleaning kit fot the jet or what do you use?
We don't have a cleaning kit specifically for the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove, no. I would suggest that something small but strong like a pin, paperclip or wire would be useful for cleaning out the jet on your stove.
If I buy one of these cookers, are there stores around where I can buy the fuel? Aussie disposals sold it in the past, but no longer and I do not want to use unleaded.
You should find fuel for the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove in most camping stores in Melbourne. It actually does take me by surprise a little that Aussie's aren't selling them anymore but you should have better luck at some of your other local camping stores.
Does it come with or can you buy a griddle either full size it half sized?
I require the complete assembly that connects to the fuel tank do you guys sell them or know were can be purchased thanks
We'd love to help! Can you give our customer support team a call on 1300 914 007 so they can grab details of what you're after and then they can look into options for you with Coleman.
What stove stand do you recommend for this stove?
Any of our stove stands will be suitable for the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove.
I've read in the reviews that using unleaded petrol is actually not recommended. Does it void the warranty?
Good news, your warranty won't be voided if you use Unleaded Fuel with the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove. The reason that it is recommended that you don't use Unleaded over the Coleman Fuel is that Unleaded burns quite dirty and requires more cleaning of the stove unit. The benefit, however, is that Unleaded Fuel is much more readily available. Obviously, dirty jets etc due to the use of Unleaded Fuel wouldn't be covered by warranty, you'd just simply need to get them cleaned.
can you tell me if the fuel tank needs to sit on a surface or is it self supporting when attached? just checking for the width of our pullout kitchen bench.
Good news - the fuel tank of the Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove is self-supporting when attached.
Can you cook inside caravan?
In general I'd say no unfortunately. Burning fuels like those used in the Coleman Dual Fuel Powerhouse Stove can emit by-products like carbon monoxide which can build up in an enclosed area (like a caravan) and be exceptionally dangerous.
Hi Is there a tap so it is possible to have 1 burner going only? Thanks
Yes, that is possible, you just turn the right-hand burner on first, and if you want to turn on the left you open up the valve on the side separately.
hi what are the dimensions, and what would be the maximum size of two pans on it at once?
The external packed dimensions of this stove are 56cm long, 35cm wide and 18cm high with a cooking space of 53cm by 30cm. (Sorry we'll update the website to reflect this).
I just tested it with a 24cm pan and a 29cm pot and they both fitted fairly comfortably but that would be the maximum.
Happy camp cooking!
The fuel tank needs to be pressurised before each use Chris, this is done via a built in pump on the fuel tank. The pressure then forces the fuel through to the burner. It won't run on metho though, I'm not clued up on the science of it as to exactly why but I think it's something to do with the volatility of the fuel. This stove will run on unleaded petrol, shellite or Coleman Fuel though.
