    I did eventually find a consumption rate for the 2 plate LK - 580 g/hr
    So at full thrust it will eat a 3kg cylinder in 5 hours .

    Would be most interested in comments of Alva camping stoves as SWAMBO prefers this to the Cadac (it only has a ring for 1 burner and you then have to use their plates for your 2nd burner.
    I brought one of these over from the USA with my luggage last year. Two serious burners.

    That sounds about right, think it is 300 g/hr per burner.

    Just check that that the Cadac and Alva is not rated per burner.

    We were making pannekoek at at a show and the guy with the Alva ran out of gas on his 3 kg cylinder in about 6 hours while I was still going.
    Ran out of dough about 30 minutes later while my flame was still going.
    Filled up the next day and took 3 kg, so imagine they are on par or I had the flame turned down a bit more.

    We have camped for 4 weeks and never ran out of gas yet on the 3kg bottle.
    Got a 5kg bottle in the BL, so should be safe

    I bought an Australian branded camping stove (companion) at the snomaster sale for R850.00. Call them, they might have another one available.

    That looks like a nice solution specially if the cooker is not mounted.
    Saw them at SnoMaster a few months ago.

    I bought the Cadac one a few months ago. Only used it once I think. Works very well.

    Hopefully they will have some in the new year.

    The old Cadac will just have to soldier on till then.

    I like the design on this - especially the recessed burners and the wind protection.

    I say again, Cadac needs to step up.

    This thread got me thinking and tinkering. So far weíve only had a problem with wind once on the cadac stove, but it was so rough that we had to close the awning that apparently can withstand winds of up to 60km/h. So it wasnít just a breeze... In my opinion I cannot see any stove coping in thŠt wind, because once that gas has burnt itís only heat, and that heat can blow away.

    So I made two prototype windshields. I tested the one for the pot with two of the same pots, and even with no wind it already made a difference, creating a chimney effect. It didnít only reduce boiling time, but also boiled the water at a higher temperature. Iím looking forward testing it with a strong wind and experimenting with the amount and position of the ventilation holes.

    I store the windshields around the pot and pan, so they donít even take up more space

    Those shields will definitely make a big difference - I used similar diy ones in the past. Just a small correction - your water will not boil at a higher temperature, but will come up to temperature a lot faster. The temperature depends on ambient pressure.

    True, technically my wording was a bit wrong there. What I meant was when both pots were boiling, the temperature of the water in the pot with shield (103.4íC) was higher than the temperature of water in the pot without shield (100.2íC).

    I still prefer our gas oven. We can make and bake just about anything we want from beef roast to scones, cake or muffins. We buy frozen rolls from deeg huiz, put 6 of them in the oven in the morning (oven off ) to defrost and rise. When we get back from a game drive for lunch, we give them a quick bake to have freshly baked rolls.
    It has seen many Christmas dinners, one of the first camping items my wife insisted on and still one of our favorites!

    Pity it is low pressure, just phoned a gas shop, low pressure, slower flame for inside use, high pressure, stronger flame, outside use, Blue Flame in Goodwood.

    We're also just one pot. We're using an Alva and it's seems kinda big for just one burner, so it takes up almost the whole little side table we have on the canopy when we're too lazy to get down the big table. Also ours doesn't handle the wind very well.
