The steel version is heavy. if you don't mind the weight--they are an excellent stove. i bought the aluminum one when they were still making them 9 years ago, it works great.

That much heat will boil water fast, but the burner is a bit more fickle when you turn it down to do normal cooking. If turned down to simmer mode, the wind can blow the flame out.

Not trying to talk you out of it because it is a good stove for high temp stuff, just my experiences.

I have a single burner that I sometimes take on the river for heating water as well as a double, but it rarely gets used. It's heavy and I mainly use it for fish fries, crawfish boils and the like. And when I was doing smaller batch brewing.

I have been using this since last summer Outfitters Series Ultra High Output Propane Stove Product Details - StanSport. It puts out 25,000 BTU/burner compared to 10,000 for Coleman and Partner Steel. It does a good job of simmering, is fairly light, packs well and was $49.
