great value stove – BRS-8 Multi-Functional Oil/Gas Stove Reviews

posted by jrita on 06/03/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Let me begin by saying this stove is the best i have. Burns gasoline , diesel, kerosene the supplied multitool is adequate Burner has a rugged feel, seems pretty strong, pre-heat tube is strongly attached Wide range of power available, from a defening roar to a subtle flame accepts large diameter cookware
Cons:
Roars like an airplane turbine puts a stong hydrocarbon stench everywhere it touches, (bags, hands ) lacks pressure release valve on the pump assembly
Other:
to prime it , put some fuel on the cup and light it, wait about 20 seconds and then open the fuel valve. it will give off some soot at the begining and after about 1 minute, the flame is stabilizes i choose to use some gas sealant on the hose fittings just to make sure it doesnt leak Dont use ethanol on it, it will corrode the rubber sealings when unscrewing the bottle from the pump assembly, the larger the pressure still inside the bottle, the more fuel will be sprayed on your hands, time will teach the user to use the pump wisely SKU: 109591 has a pressure release valve but costs a few more dollars
Bottomline:
definitly a must if you go outdoors in low temperatures or just if you wanna stop spending on ridiculously expensive gas canisters. Some care must be taken when operating
