Century Tool Camp Stoves. Are they decent?

I am considering this one. Anyone have one or a similar Century Stove?

Opinions on stoves in general??

Century's are still made in the U.S.A. as opposed to overseas with other name brands.

4980 Deluxe Stainless Steel 2-Burner Stove

* Pressure regulated for consistent performance.
* Two Large 3-3/8", 12,000 BTU burners.
* Push button piezo igniter.
* Chrome plated drip tray for easy clean-up.
* 24" hose and regulator included.
* Easily converts to bulk cylinder operation.
* Uses 16.4 oz. propane cylinder (not included).

If you are talking about tailgate camping, then yes, it's a pretty good stove. I wouldn't want to carry it anywhere though

My personal experience was not good . I prefer the coleman over thecentury . The centuty would flre up with a dangerous ly high flame . My sons boy scout troop had quite a few of those stoves & they replaced the century with coleman . My personal coeman stove is 10 yrs old & cooked quite a few cubscout group meals .

Spray paint that green and rusty and it would look exactly like my 20 year old Coleman.

It's chrome plated.. people might steal it



I haven't bought a coleman propane stove recently... cuz mine is like a million years old and works flawlessly. Which isn't some amazing feat really because they're incredibly simple in usage and design.
