Coleman dual fuel stove - The ultimate camping stove

Updated on February 4, 2015

When I go camping on campsites I will try to get one with an electric hook up wherever possible and use my electric crock pot to cook dinner. When I go backpacking out in the wild there is, of course, no chance to use the crock pot but this does not mean I go hungry. Oh no, there is no way I will let a lack of electricity get between me and my stomach.

When I am camping in the wild I use a petrol cooking stove for all my cooking needs (if you are not aware of why petrol stoves are better than gas stoves for camping take a look at this guide) and my Coleman duel fuel double ring is perfect. As the name suggests the Coleman is powered by petroleum, and whilst this may seem dangerous I mean petroleum is highly flammable and explosive, the Coleman petrol burner is claimed to be safer than Camping gas stoves.

The Coleman double burner is built in to an aluminium case that is tough, durable and will take a few knocks and scrapes and still not come to any harm, which is essential for outdoor use. The Coleman double burner stove is far more robust than any Camping gas stove I have ever had, and the build quality of the Coleman petroleum stove is second to none.

It is impossible to use Camping gas stoves in the wind or the rain because the flame gets extinguished quickly, but this is not the case with the Coleman petroleum cooker. When I light my Coleman double ring stove I know it is going to remain alight regardless of the weather conditions.

One of the best things about the Coleman petroleum stove is its power. This is one powerful stove that kicks out 2.2KW, which is enough to boil a kettle in a few short minutes. Compare this power to a Camping gas stove, most of which struggle to kick out a 1KW of power and it is easy to see that with the Coleman petroleum stove you will be tucking in to your evening meal, or enjoying a nice cuppa, in no time at all.

The Coleman double burner stove has 2 cooking rings, which means you can cook your main dinner at the same time as your side dishes, such as your chilli con carne whilst your cooking your rice to go with it, which is great. Alternatively, a 2 ring set up means you can cook your dinner whilst boiling the kettle for a brew, which is also great.

The biggest disadvantage of the Coleman double burner petroleum stove is its size and weight, and it is quite a bit bigger and heavier than the Camping gas equivalents, although you should not let this put you off buying one unless you have to travel light. That said, the Coleman double burner petroleum stove isn’t huge and it is portable.

When it comes to price the Coleman double burner isn’t cheap but then you do get what you pay for and it is worth spending a little extra and buying the best, and when you buy a Coleman camping stove you can be rest assured you are getting the best money can buy.

So would I recommend a Coleman double burner petroleum stove? Most definitely. I have had my Coleman double burner stove for a few years now and, despite a lot of knocks and scrapes along the way, it is still going strong and still as powerful and efficient as the day I bought it.

So, if you are going on a camping trip and cannot get an electric hook up and want a fast, efficient and powerful cooker to sort out your camping meals I suggest you take a look at the Coleman double burner stove, it really is an awesome piece of kit and essential for a fun filled camping expedition.

Here we have a couple of Coleman products that are perfectly suited to the Coleman duel fuel stove.
