Pros Can used on a tabletop or freestanding, easy to use, powerful flame, durableEfficient, durable, compact, has auto-ignitionWind-resistant, powerful, even cooking, auto-ignitionNon-slip rubber feet for leveling, large cooking surface, durable metal latches instead of plasticAffordable, fuel adaptor threads on easier than other stoves, windscreens are adjustable, compact dimensions
Cons Requires a large propane tank, no windscreen, no auto-ignition systemCooks hot, ignitor is sometimes finickyUnreliable burner regulators, plastic latches on frontStruggles with the wind, not super powerful, on the heavy sideNo auto-ignition, lower BTUs, small burners prone to hot spots
Bottom Line This powerful, freestanding stove makes cooking for groups a cinch, unless there is a strong breeze presentThe stove works great, looks good, and comes at a reasonable priceA powerful, wind-resistant stove that cooks well, unless the internal regulators malfunctionDurable and generously sized, this stove is straightforward and has adjustable feet for uneven surfacesIf you just need something basic and don't want to strain your wallet, this is our favorite option
