    This is an Eezy-Fyre ‘single burner cooker’. These were Australian made around the period 1941 through 1952, and sold to the public from at least Mar 1943 to March 1952). The burner though, which is unusual for Australian made stoves, was patented on 28 March 1940 (Patent 112,767). This patent was applied for by the inventor, Eric Vajda-Vidor, a merchant from St Kilda, Victoria and the patent was described as, “ Improved self-generating high pressure liquid fuel burner”. The patent was published in April 1941.

    My other Eezy-Fyre is the double burner stove with the ‘boating’ tray, to stop pans sliding off, which is standard for that model. The burner on that stove has the standard logoed burner plates, (as do other single burner Eezy-Fyre stoves in the gallery). However, this stove has an atypical plain burner cap, without the Ezy Fyre (sic) logo cast into it, though the burner itself is the standard distinctive Eezy-Fyre unit.

    I agree with others that the burner takes a bit longer and a bit more heat before it fires up very nicely.

    Great post with great information.

    It’s good to see these Aussie utilitarian stoves up and running.

    Cheers

    Very similar to Svea 50/150 serial stoves.
    Any connection there?

    The Svea 50/150 series was manufactured in Australia under licence by Companion (and branded Companion). Svea 50/150 stoves were also imported.

    This is obviously a copy of the Svea setup, with a patented burner.
