Partner Steel Stoves

#1
Nobody local seems to have a Partner Stove. I just purchased one from a group buy :) My question is for those of you that actually use one... If I'm just out for maybe a long weekend how long do they last with the 1 lb Canisters? I have and could bring a larger canister but would rather not. FYI mine is 22" 2 burner... Any input appreciated

I've been looking at one as my old Coleman is on it's last leg. What do you think of it so far?

Never used a 1 pound canister with my Partner stove. In fact, I got the Partner stove to avoid using 1 pound canisters which I felt to be wasteful since they are not intended to be reused. Made more sense for my use to have a propane tank that is renewable or refilled. As you probably already know propane tanks come in a variety of sizes.

Same for me. I run a 5 lb cylinder with my PS. I did pickup and adapter to be able run green cylinders in a pinch though. I'm guessing you can certainly squeeze a weekend's worth of cooking out of one.

I use 1 lb cylinders with my Partner stove. One lasts several days of pretty serious cooking.

As for the cost, I refill them from my 20 lb cylinder. I do track how many times each has been refilled (kind of like brass for reloading :)). I have some that have been refilled 6 times - no leaks and working fine.

Herbie, thanks for the info. I am going to be traveling cross country with my two dogs in my Outback. I will need every square inch for storage.

OK old thread but have a question. I tried , for first time, this weekend to use a 1 lb Coleman type canister on mt Partner 22" 2 burner. I used an adapter I purchased on the hose and regulator that came with stove. I see others have used the 1 lb with success. My setup just sputtered and pop and regulation of flame was impossible. Had to borrow friends 20lb to cook. Am I doing something wrong... is there anything else I need? redmondroger at att dot net if easier
