the coleman propane skillet is a once again a work horse

Postby slowcowboy » Thu Sep 12, 2013 6:09 am

found out at walk the winds last month in pinedale that once again the coleman propane skillet lived up to its reputation and is a very good cooking work horse! we done pancakes in it. we even sliced up zuckine squash and fried zukine squash for the putluck.

never emagined you could have fried zuckine while camping! for eggs its a breeze and bacon it can do a pound in less than 45 minutes at high altude!

it has a red instant light button a easy to clean tefallon coated pan and a lid to keep the flyes away.

runs on a green coleman can.

for me any more I don't use my stove to cook with while camping its so much easer just to use the stuff from the skillet.

slow :D

These units look fantastic. I did a search for one and found I could get one for $70.00. The most expensive price I found was $99.00. I want one of these stoves! Now where to buy one. Are they available here in Aust. Yes, of course they are. $100.00 plus postage. The postage is only $105.00 (Huh?!!), it is sent from the US. No-one here in our local camping stores has ever heard of the stove.
The Aust dollar has dropped a little (?) in value so the final cost in Aust dollars becomes $223.00.
Now I can't buy one. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Here is a link to the Coleman Propane Skillet

http://www.coleman.com/product/perfectf ... jRA0NLin5w

And the review
http://reviews.cabelas.com/8815/518804/ ... ort=rating

We don't have any sports stores like you fellas have. There is no Walmart, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Wally's World or Target. We have to make do with what we can import or make ourselves. Importing anything now is basically out of the question. The closest store that is anything like a Walmart is the Aldi's store down near Brisbane, its only an 8 hour drive from here, (??). My daughter lives not far from the store (she raves about it) so I will ask her to have a Captain Cook for me in the store and around Brisbane but I won't hold my breath while she looks for it.
The best price I could find was $69.00 in the US. I am certainly sure that if one was available here, it would cost $200.00. We do have a "Target" complex here in Aust. but they only sell the bare minimum of sports gear. Most of what they sell are clothes that were designed and made for Japanese midgets, I'm 6' 2" so I don't go there very much. We won't mention shoes!

I want a Coleman Propane Skillet, it's just not fair, it's not fair! :( :( :cry: :cry: :cry:

I only want one of them, :cry:

I bought a "Buck 120" bowie knife from Cabela's about 4 or 5 years ago. It cost me $52.00 and a friend of mine who was traveling in the US, picked it up for me and brought it home in his luggage. The very same knife was on sale here at a camping store for $245.00. Go figure!

Kody, come and give Dad a cuddle, it's just not fair :cry:

I think I will just stick with a camp stove and a well seasoned cast iron skillet. Mine wipes clean just like the teflon.
