Im currently looking to replace my stove. I have a Coleman Triton and Ive been looking at the Coleman Fryecadet and Sergeant but all reviews of both says that it burns too hot and even on low it burns hot and hard to regulate. Not looking to spend more than $200. Suggestions please!!

I love my camp chef mountaineer.. all aluminum design, super light, and fits large pots and pans with ease. 40k btu output, can't be beat

My vote for the Everest also. Been through Colemans small and large. This is the right size, weight, and most important flame output BTU that will work in windy conditions. Solid build also.

No on both counts. I bought a Camp Chef case for a different model. It stores a bunch of gear along with the stove. A 1 lb bottle would be possible with an adapter, I would imagine.

Personally, if my stove didn’t work so well, I’d buy the Moutaineer by Camp Chef. @A-Aron has a darn good stove.
It is nice! Handles the wind quite well. Self lighting option is decent but only works about 75% of the time, but it's not electronic. Has double the BTU output of the Partner stove, and it is easy to clean. Just watch for sharp edges.

OP, why do you want to replace your Triton? What doesn't it do that you want or need? I've got the previous version of this stove and feel it does everything well. However, most of my camp cooking is heating water for coffee or the occasional Mountain House if I want a hot meal. My van has a two burner stove but I usually just use a little single isobutane burner. In my LX, I carry the MSR Superfly.

When I do actually cook, more often than not it's breakfast. I like the baguette, cheese, wine thing for dinner on my little outings. Also a fan of the sandwich, especially in the van where I've got a little fridge to hold chicken salad, turkey, etc. I know food is important for a lot of campers and a big production is part of the experience for many but after so many years of doing this, the simpler and easier, the better, IMO. I should add, the main reason is I don't want to clean up any more than I have to.

I remain a white gas fan from my earliest days. I use a Coleman two burner stove I bought new 25 years ago. Replace the generator for the first time this year and runs like a champ. Doesn't look brand new by any means but would not hesitate to take it anywhere. I also have a MSR Whisperlite that is of the same vintage and have only replaced one o-ring, a single burner Coleman and a small bottle top propane stove. The ease of repair and all weather performance make these my go to, never change stoves.

Also same bottle of fuel powers my lanterns and there is very little to throw away when the fuel bottle is empty.

I've got a generic Coleman. It doesn't regulate the best but a quick look at the flame and it's fine.

Call me stupid, but what stove is this? Didnt see it referenced, but Im interested. Thanks.

to the OP. I have a few, well more than a few coleman dual fuel stoves, pick them up at the end of summer from local classifieds for good prices. They make a propane adapter for it which works good. I also own a camp chef evererst, a skottle, and a 22" partner. The partner is my favorite by a good amount. Solid, well built, recessed knobs to prevent damage in the back of the rig. Pricey, yes, add the stand/ block off plate and propane adapter it really adds up. But they are solid stoves, I know river rats that have owned theirs for over a decade and is still going strong.
