    BernzOmatic Deluxe TX550L Propane stove. The first pic is of how the item arrived to me, no packing material at all, just loose in the box.

    The first firing after getting the orifice cleaned a little bit and replacing an o-ring in the regulator.

    That's a propane stove I would not mind having around. Good job getting it up and running.

    As you're north of the border it'll not be Strickland Propane supplying your fuel I guess.

    So I was doing a boil test with this stove today and I decide to use my medium sized pot with 1 litre of water. I have found that this stove is great for larger pans or if you want good low heat to medium heat. With my pot centered over the burner and the burner on high like I normally do with my boils tests, I had flames up the sides of my pot, so I turned it down until they were just coming to the edge, but a touch coming up the sides every once in a while. With the flame set to this, it took around 12-15 minutes to bring the water to a boil.

    It seems like it would be a good stove but a poor burner setup. I did look on ebay and it looks like they changed the burner design to a better style. The picture is with the valve opened fully (high). Once I put a pot on, I had a very nice blue flame the entire time!
