    I recently purchased this as a stand in for travelling or just stopping over. What is not stated is, if you have attached the 1kg disposable cylinder, the foldable legs cant be closed. I opted for the adapter and a 3kg cadac bottle. It's more cost effective gas wise. Tried it out with a small steak and also to have some fat on the metal. Nothing to write home about, maybe a bit more use and trying the other cooking tops will change my mind about versatility. I found the cleaning of the grid easy. The flame deflector plate needed a lot more soaking time before I could remove the charred juices.
    Maybe there is somebody who can elaborate on their experience.

    We have one and quite a nifty all-in-one when travelling with just a vehicle - remember using it for breakfasts, pastas, "potjies" and grilling meat quickly and conveniently. Haven't used it for years however with the caravan.

    I got one, very happy with it, makes great Eggs & bacon, wors, steak, pancakes. Great for camping and doing a mini me braai when it's raining. Packs away into a small neat bag. Remember to buy plastic non scratch utensils as the grill/pan/pot are all non stick Teflon coated.

    Have had one for about 2 years. Works very well as an all in one appliance, but reality is 90% of the time my normal 2 plate burner works just as well at a fraction of the cost.

    Can you post a pic of the gas attachment gadgets asb? My rather antique Safari Chef only has an attachment for a standard (Cadac) gas cylinder.

    I would actually quite like being able to use it with a disposable cylinder.

    To the OP, the gadgets coated with teflon are pretty useless as the teflon doesn't last too long (if there still are gadgets coated with teflon). It is very useful on a quick stop if you have facilities to wash whatever you use.
