Partner Stove Stand

Howdy-

I'm getting ready to purchase my first Partner stove. I'm wondering if the stove stand is worth the $100 bucks or so, or if I'd be better off buying an aluminum table from REI for much cheaper.

Appreciate your opinions.

The stand is heavy and will rust, so you will need to maintain it. A friend had an aluminum version built--pricey, but nice.

We use the stand. Never noticed any rust. Well worth the price I think, because table space always seems to be at a premium in a river kitchen.

The company I work for also uses the stand and it is great, also have never noticed rust and I do a lot of the maintenance for the company in the off season. they will last a long time.... And give you that extra table space as mentioned!

True, all the ones I've seen that have been around eventually get rust on them, but kind of like the fire pans more cosmetic then anything. I think the stands are more a pain to carry and setup then anything. I would just put the stove on a table.

I have one and like it. Heavy? Maybe a little, but my loaded cooler is heavy and I still take it. To date, rust has not been an issue. I don't like to use table space for a stove.

Just my opinions.

They can be a little heavy depends on what kind of weight your willing to carry, and also yes... Sort of a pain to set up the first couple times after that no big deal. Before we bought the stands we just put the stove on our tables also and that worked just fine. Was nice after we bought them to realize the extra table space and have the mobility of moving the stove off the table and a little on the outskirts of the kitchen if you needed to do that. But yes putting it on the table works as well.

I posted this in another thread about partner stove but it pertains here.

A stove stand is nice because it frees up room on the tables. I made my own stand using extra roll-a-table legs I had when I got the telescoping legs for my table. I welded a small threaded piece of aluminum in each corner of the and fabricated a couple of cross bars. It is all aluminum and doesn't weigh much.

Nice job on the stand, Wade in the water! I'm surprised Partner hasn't done this.Seems like a simple mod.,and cuts down the weight of the steel stand considerably.Thanks for the pictures!
