Rated 3 out of 5 by 2easyfish very usable cooker works very good would have given it a 5 star rating except it was missing some of the hardware necessary for assembly. February 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by leroy11 Beautiful heat Man it didn't take long and the oil was hot. Be careful though when you rest the strainer onto the side of the main pot it may tip left or right because the metal on the back to support it is a little to narrow. I only had 2 lbs of fish in it. Well worth the money on sale. January 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by daveM77 Good Deal I did not know what to expect when ordering this propane cooker and was afraid I might have made a mistake by not ordering a more expensive model. However it arrived, I put it together, and tried it out. It was what I expected and more. Sturdy, and plenty of oomph with a nice hot blue flame. December 31, 2012

Details:i was wandering if it has a waranty and how long it is
A:Seriously, @ $30 and no real moving parts?
It's a good value and works well. Nuff said.
Details:At $30, could I go wrong with this stove for emergency preparedness? For example, could I use my other pots and pans on this, or is the burner circumference too wide?
A:Other pans can work fine as long as they are not large like turkey fry pans. large pans can turn over and may be heavier then the stand is built to handle. They can not have a handle that can be set on fire.

A:pans used should at least 12 inches in diameter or use a metal plate over the burner for smaller pans
A:You can use this for what ever you need to heat up. Maple syrup is my favorite. Whiskey still, boil water to de-feather water fowl, stew tomatoes. What ever your little heart desires. Use any pot or pan you would use in any other cooker or on your kitchen stove.
A:Definitely. This would be an excellent stove for emergency use.
A:It has "fingers" that go in to the center so you can put a smaller pan on it. I used one very similar in the summer when the power went out. The only catch is these are high heat burners so it's near impossible to have a "low" setting.
A:May not have air to gas ratio set correctly , check out flame color at top of flame

A:change the air mixture to generate more heat
A:Maybe the regulator is bad or try opening the propane tank slowly before lighting the burner as there is a safety unit inside the tank valve that does not allow full flow of fuel if it's opened quickly. They just started this about 1 1/2 years ago to my knowledge.
A:Here is a great way to determine how much oil you will need:
(1) Place the food product in the basket.
(2) Place the food product and holder into the empty vessel.
(3) Fill the vessel with water just until the food product is completely submerged. There must be a minimum of 3 inch (8 cm) between the water level and top of the vessel.
(4) Remove the food product from the vessel and either mark the water level on the side of the vessel or measure the amount of water in the vessel.
(5) Remove the water and completely dry the vessel and the food product.
(6) This is the amount of cooking oil the vessel is to be filled with to cook the food
A:Depends on what your putting inside the pot. How much room it takes up and then the oil. It says it's total capacity is 2.5 gallons .
A:I use 1 gallon of oil in my deep fryer.
A:The pot is a 10QT. unit. I find that 6-7 QTs. of oil works well.
A:No, this unit does not come with a lid.

A:no lid with cooker, lodge cookware does make a splatter shield which works very well

A:we cooked about 4 fish at once.
A:I only fry about 6 pieces at a time
they fry very quick at 325-350 degrees
A:About 4 or 5 at a time it deppends on the size of th fish.
A:I cut my catfish fillets into strips about 2 inches wide and this pot will cook about 15 of those pieces at a time.
A:they sell 2 different ones. 1 is steel and 1 is stainless. i have the steel, and just recently purchased stainleess steel ($20 more) for my place in the fla. keys.( Its on backorder)
A:Steel. It is disassembled in the box. You have to bolt it together. It took about 15 minutes to put it together.
A:No. I wouldn't use a lid anyway due to possible pressure build up. Lid off also makes the fish crispier faster.
A:No lid, that would be nice though.
