Best First Tabletop
Classic Coleman

The Classic Coleman tabletop stove is an original among camping circles for two main reasons: it’s reliable and it stands the test of time. 

The system has been perfected over decades and presents an easy-to-use, two-burner system for folks just looking to make a meal at the end of the day.

The stove uses propane for its fuel and a match or lighter to ignite the flame. Sizewise, it can fit two medium size pots on the stove for two separate types of food. The wind guards are reliable and the portability of this stove is great. It’s an easy addition to your trunk and requires no expertise for use.

The only complaint we have is the unreliability of the simmer controls. Setting that aside, this is an excellent first camping stove purchase for individuals and families looking to graduate from campfire cooking.
