Great stove, griller not so much
I particularly wanted one with the griller thinking crumpets/toast etc. The 2 burners are splendid although I didn't know it had an igniter so used a lighter designed to light up gas jets.
When it came to cooking toast with the griller - one slice over 5 minutes, the crumpet took so long to colour up it had dehydrated and was rock hard. I haven't tried meat as I decided it would be just too messy to clean up and a fry pan was easier.
I wouldn't waste my money purchasing the griller again but I would purchase the 2 burner version any tim...e. There could be one further improvement...it could do with a sturdy carry bag so the grill tray, handle and gas hose don't get separated. At this point in time they just slide around in the tray or need to be stowed elsewhere.
Speedy Camping Stove
I recently purchased the above camping stove as an upgrade to our old 2 burner stove which was slowly dying, even after fitting it with new jets. It too was a Gasmate. I decided to give this new Turbo Stove a go seeing how it was on special from Anaconda for about $147.
I decided to try it out a week after purchase to ensure all was working fine for the upcoming trip. When I opened the box, to my disappointment, I found the clips which hold the lid on were not properly installed and the latch was not securely inserted into the operating han...
Questions & Answers
are your gasmate 2 burner grill still having same problems as the person whom reviewed it?
The Gasmate stove I reviewed is still going strong without any issues. The vendor replaced the stove for us after showing them the problem with the latches. OK, the side panels and lid are still thin and a little flimsy, but the stove works very well and I am very happy with its performance and would happily recommend it.
How does this stove light self ignite or matches? Thanks
The stove has an igniter knob which you turn to ignite the burners. It works a treat. I'm very happy with it. We still keep a lighter handy in case it should ever fail, but all's good so far.
