How about this one? It's on special at gooutdoors for 16.99

Hi Gear Inferno Folding Gas Stove | GO Outdoors

Here's the vid:



It looks the same as this one which is 38

Go Systems Sirocco Stove

And with this it should be quite windproof:

The gas only one is 65 and the omnifuel one is double that and I still have a tent to buy.

But have a look at this video it shows the omnifuel in operation:

My petrol Coleman takes about 10 seconds to start. Practically no messing around preheating.

If I had to mess around with preheating like that Omnifuel, I'd be put off it as well. I used to hate preheating a Primus.

I really like the idea of a multi fuel stove, but small kids and all that.....

A nice low to the floor gas one will do me I think

I really don't understand what you mean about small kids mate.

Pop over and have a look at the Coleman and you'll see what I mean-it's really no harder to use than a gas stove. There's none of that messing around preheating with big flames or setting up and messing with valves like the omnifuel stove.It's a lot harder to cause an accident than with gas as you depressurise it every time it's finished with.

(just found a vid of one being lit properly)-('scuse the foreign) here:-

Thanks mate, yeah I would really like to see that one in action for the longer camping trips

As for the stove that I'm planning on taking to Alderney I got the Primus Gravity 2 in the end. It was the lowest stove to the ground with 4 legs and a 3000w burner and the guy in the shop recomended that I use it with the Jetboil gas as apparently it has a better mix

The stove came with its own dry bag and a wind shield two, it cost 65 and if I can find it cheaper in the next 7 days they will refund the difference on my card

When I said about heating food on a rib he recommended one of these Trekmate flameless cook systems:

Trekmates - Flameless Cook System

Has anyone tried them?

Thats an interesting approach - it will of course be impossible to source fuel anywhere where you might want to. There's a review here:grough — On test: Trekmates Flameless Cooking System which suggests it would be useful for heating but not cooking food. On a rib with a tank of petrol around though I can see the appeal.

Historically I've always been a Trangia guy (not on the rib) but if I was buying now I'd seriously consider the Kelly Kettle, as I've seen one in action and its impressive.

The guy in Cotswold Camping said that the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme recommended them because of the reduced H&S risk....

Quite expensive at 10 for five fuel bags and 30 for a tupperware box

But it does give a flameless & microwaveless option

Having said that, I like Nos's curry and meatballs in a flask method, never fails
