1965 3 Burner Rough But Serviceable? Dad's - Advice Welcome

Postby SuperShady1 » Fri May 31, 2013 3:50 pm

This 3-Burner Coleman came with my Dad's 200a. I think it was used maybe once? I see one used matchstick and there is no marks anywhere except for a few on the bottom. It comes with a collapsible aluminum stand that is new in box. The Stove also has its original box and has the item number of 426D499...1965 is what I have figured out. :thinking:

I have oiled the pump/leather and chipped out the old gasket and put in a new one. Gets hot really quick. :D

What should I do with it? Is it to minty to use? :thinking:

we currently use one of those really thin two burner propane ones...but this one is so pretty...not sure I want someone/wifey boiling over her oatmeal?? I guess use it or lose it.... :twisted:

I'd use it...you don't have to abuse it. Just keep it clean. They were meant to be used. While nice, that stove isn't going to be a retirement account. It's a family stove, use it with your family. Doug

:roll: Sent it to me if you don't want it! :) I use mine all the time. Just be careful about using a large pan on the side burners, or you will scorch the paint. Also it might be a little too large for the aluminum stand. I always worry about mine falling off because the stands were made for the two burners. Yours look like it is brand spankin' new.

3+ on the use that baby. It's nice to have two burners available for cooking while using the third to keep the coffee hot.

Like Doug said, Use it don't abuse it. I doubt if they will ever be considered "industrial Art" and and put on display at the Guggenheim. Unless you like to display it in you house and constantly dust it. It is a strove only when it is burned.

i do want to use it...wife comfortable with newer fold down propane two burner....we both cook, so it is a matter of hauling along.

but if you want pancakes, eggs and bacon and an omelette station. you need the extra fire power.

Shady I would use it. What a great showpiece at camp. Or just use it in your backyard , thats what I do with mine. It throws more btu's than my natural gas stove in my kitchen. You dont have to be out in the sticks to play with your Coleman stuff.

I agree, need to toss out the little propane bottle two burner and go for the gusto...I just like the surface area and the ability have the three burners going.

of course it is green and it would benefit from its own trailer hitch to tow it with.
