Review of the
Coleman camp stove “Fyre Knight” from the Gladiator Series.
After having gone
through a few cheaper camp stoves in the Jeep all of which
were slow or very unstable or too small, I am now using the Coleman camp stove the Fyre
Knight that belong to their Gladiator Series range.
tested out the Fyre Knight over a 3+ month’s period on various trips, from overnight
to 9-day remote trips in many different conditions mainly along the coast.
The Fyre Knight comes with Coleman’s new technology, the HyperFlame, and
has been excellent in the windy conditions we have along the coast here in Western Australia as it comes with the WindBlock technology built in.
The stove has two large
burners and you can easily fit two big pots or frying pans on at the same time,
I find that is excellent if you are cooking breakfast for 4-6 people, definitely a good stove to have if you travel with the
family or if you are the one cooking for the whole crew.

I also like the idea
that you can use the Colman Propane Bottle on
the stove or a regular BBQ LPG gas bottle, it
does include a hose with 3/8 fitting.
The stove is large, but
for its size I find it light and easy to handle.
The price is in the top
end, but if you are using the stove a lot and in windy conditions, it is worth spending
that extra few dollars to get something that works in windy conditions as well.
Pros: The 360-degree
wind protection system makes it ideal for windy conditions.
Handy that you can use
the 465g Coleman Propane Bottle as well as a regular
BBQ LPG gas bottle
and able to fit two large pots or pans on the unit.
Cons: Takes up a lot of
space on the camping table.
Ronny’s Review On The Coleman Camp Stove;
I am impressed with the wind resistance as I am accustomed to burners
blowing out by windy conditions and messing around with wind blocks.
only used this Coleman cooker about 8 times, as Brian usually cooks with it, I
like it but would love to see a single burner option. That would have me sold
on it as I like compact stuff hence I use hiking cookers and I already carry a
bulky BBQ for roasts etc.
But the fact that Brian carries the Fyre knight and fixes up brekkie in
the mornings regardless whether it’s windy or not makes me very grateful for my
bacon and eggs in the morning...
Pros; Anti wind technology, boils water fast for a big unit, space for
two pans at once (extra bacon).
Cons; There is no ‘very’ low setting for simmering, takes up quite a bit
of space on camping tables.
