    That's quite cool, not sure I'd want to carry it all very far if I was planning on toasted sandwiches, fried breakfast, hot drinks etc, but for short distances and out the motor camping it would be very nice...

    Maybe not so bad really. Lots of this kind of set ups around, and they're popular with folks, though this one seems to hit the details better than most.
    It's meant for carp fishermen, who are inclined to set up home and chill out when they're out. I think the canoeists would find it an attractive option too.
    I think the toaster thing is inspired though :D
    No cast iron, no hassle to lift, neat closing lid, multi-purpose type cooking. I can see the appeal.

    They didn't need to diss the 2-burner Coleman which has cooked more food than any other pairs of burners going.
    More models, longer life and parts and service all over the planet. They can't beat that.
    You have to show me something 10X better than the "green monster" Coleman petrol stove to get me out of my chair.

    But if you have the money for eating on your knees, pull the trigger. I would not go for less than the 2 burners
    or a simple meal will take all night.

    I think there's a match of weight and simple durability. I worry about the little burner flaps folding up.
    You cannot kick a Coleman stove to death.

    Great stuff for camping. With a car with a spacious boot.

    Lots of probs with the earlier models, fuel leaks between the slave fuel pipe and second burner if memory serves.

    if you check out the Ridge Monkey web site it's all explained there.

    I think user error would explain it well.
