Suggest a single burner propane stove?

#46
If you want two burners I'd go with an external metal attach and hard metal propane container. For a single burner though, I go with what OTHERS recommend - the butane canister model that slips into the unit (after a panel is lifted up), lever is activated, spark and then instant flame. The units are very light weight, dependable and have sure fire heat. The units though do NOT have side panels that deflect wind or dust and in heavy weather need to be shielded. I have two different brand models, one with fancy red paint and the other black - my guess is that both came from the same manufacturing region in China though.

I ordered a Gas One Mini dual fuel stove based on someone's recommendation here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LW87Z9O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I used it for a short trip for the first time this week, with propane. I can report that I'm thoroughly pleased with it and recommend it. It's very simple to use and I love the piezo ignition. The pot support is very sturdy and provides some wind protection. The plastic case can be used for washing and rinsing a small amount of dishes. The only problem I had is that it's pretty difficult to fit the hose back into the case, as many reviewers note.

@Ace Brown , thanks for the reply. Do you ever miss two burners? I'm asking because I have the PS 22" stove and I'm considering stepping down to the one burner, size and ease of use, I'm a huge fan of the PS quality. Most of the time it's just me. I use a Lodge grill/griddle to double as my BBQ and diffuser and it will fit a one burner based on the pictures

Thanks for any insight you can provide based on your 14 years of use. Anything you might change or do differently will also be helpful.

The pot support was lacking so when I went thru Pocatello once I had them add another bar but their welder misunderstood the directions and put the bar too far towards the front and back so small pots still don’t have much support. The wind screen could be bigger. All PS stoves don’t simmer down well.

I travel solo and it’s rare that I feel a need for two burners.
