Coleman Powerpack Camp Stove Has Strength, Size And Style To Spare !
Ushering in a new era in camp stoves, Coleman’s latest offering boasts both brawn and beauty. The generously sized PowerPack™ Stove far surpasses the cooking power of existing two-burner stoves, and its stylish, contemporary design adds a touch of sophistication to outdoor cookery.
Helping the PowerPack Stove stand out from the rest are its sleek profile, curved edges and extra large comfort-fit handle, as well as its power and versatility. With the PowerPack Stove, the Coleman Company has taken the functionality and spacious cooking surface area of a home range and placed it in a portable unit just right for camping, tailgating or other outdoor events.
Two versions of the PowerPack Stove are being introduced – one providing up to 30,000 Btu of adjustable cooking power and the other up to 50,000. Both can be powered by a 16 oz propane cylinder or adapted for use with a refillable bulk tank. Previously, the highest output of any Coleman® two-burner propane stove was 20,000 Btu.
The 30,000-Btu version has two 15,000-Btu independently adjustable burners and comes with four legs that are easy to add or remove as needed, thus placing the stove at a comfortable height for cooking without the need for a separate table. It takes just a few minutes to screw the legs into the bottom of the stove. A carry case for the legs comes with the stove.
The 50,000-Btu PowerPack Stove has two 25,000-Btu independently adjustable burners and comes with a bulk tank adapter hose so it can be used with a 20-pound propane tank.
The PowerPack Stove doesn’t suffer in the size category either. It is a full 25 percent larger than most two-burner camp stoves. Intelligently designed to accommodate two large pots or pans at the same time, the stove still maintains a compact profile when packed down for traveling and storage. Both versions of the stove offer 285 square inches of cooking area and burners that are a full 14 inches apart, ample space for two 12-inch pots. By comparison, a standard propane two-burner stove has 240 square inches of cooking space with 11 inches between burners. In addition to being spaced farther apart, the burners on the PowerPack Stove are oversized (4 inches in diameter as opposed to 2 ½ inches on standard models), providing greater heat distribution over a wider area.
The PowerPack Stove has the power of a much larger stove and is perfectly suited for cooking for large groups, yet it still weighs just 25 pounds and measures a compact 29 inches long,17 inches wide and 8 inches tall in its closed position.
Adding to the streamlined look, the control knobs and push button electronic ignition are located on the handle, rather than the front panel as is customary. The stove’s Windblock™ system features curved side panels to provide maximum wind protection as well as cooking surface area.
Full and half-size removable griddle surfaces are available for separate purchase as accessory items for the PowerPack Stove, enhancing the stove’s versatility.
Like other Coleman propane stoves, the PowerPack Stove also has these camp-worthy features:
Removable lid accommodates oversized pots and pans.
Perfectflow™ propane control system provides pressure regulation for consistent output throughout the life of the propane cylinder.
Heavy-duty nickel chrome grate provides solid support and is removable for easy cleaning.
Aluminized steel cook top helps minimize heat to the stove case and cleans up easily.
Heavy-duty embossed steel components are strong and durable and help extend the life of the stove.
Lid can be locked for secure transporting. The PowerPack Stove will be available at retail in early spring 2004. The suggested retail price of each version is $100. Half- and full-size griddle surfaces retail for $20 and $30 and an optional bulk tank adapter hose for the 30,000-Btu version sells for $20.
