It seems like a good thing to try out to see and share the results.

We take two sizes of fuel canisters: the 100 gram and the 220 gram butane/propane fuel mix bottles, and put them inside 4 different cook sets to see if they fit.

The 4 camp cook sets tested are the:

  • Coleman Stainless Steel Kit
  • Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set (stainless steel)
  • Texsport Kangaroo 5-piece set (aluminum, non-stick coating)
  • Bisgear Camp Cook Set (anodized aluminum, non-stick).
