Rated 2 out of 5 by HappyMan2 Design flaws
I purchased this stove for canning and emergency use during power outages. Based upon the stove's design flaws and my results I can only rate it fair.
The first stove I received had a defective left valve. I could not adjust the flame once the stove heated up; heat caused the valve to stick. I returned the stove but the second one I received was broken, so I returned it too. The manifold on the second stove was very loose due to a lack of solid support (see design flaw statement below). I tried a third stove due to the need to can a lot of produce, and it did work as it should.
My concerns are all related to the design flaws. The manifold is not well supported. The only support it has are the brass control valves, and they are not very robust. The valves and plastic control knobs do not appear to be very substantial so this thing must be handled with extreme care.
I also purchased the fabric carry bag but it offers no protection so I plan to build a plywood box to store and carry the stove. With the carry bag alone, any unintended bump to the front of the stove (the location of the control knobs/valves) will likely break either the brass valves or the plastic control knobs. If these two issues were corrected this would be an outstanding stove. It puts out a tremendous amount of heat. The frame and legs appear to be well made.
I give BassPro 5 stars for customer service. They sent out the second and third stoves immediately when I called. They also paid for all the return shipping costs.

Haven't used it yet but seems to be built well and sturdy. Ready to use right out of the box. Was hoping the legs were longer, but I can add to them.
