More Information

This stove weighs 3 ounces, but can get a liter of water to boiling in roughly 3.5 minutes. Since the isobutane-propane fuel canister is fully separate, Eastman Recreation allowed to the club to purchase ($40) this stove for the rental fleet. Simple to operate with no priming, preheating or pressurizing required. Screw on the canister, turn the stove on, light with a match or Bic lighter, and start cooking. Safety point: Make sure the fuel canister, which serves as the base, is place on level ground for stability.

Note that B-310 will not have or accept any fuel. You’ll need to provide for your trip. Any canister fuel is suitable, while those containing isobutane are better for cold weather. Walmart sells Coleman 8 oz. butane/propane fuel mix for ~$5 each and Primus 3.5 oz. Power Gas Canisters for $7. Roughly one hour cooking per 8 oz. fuel.
