A Review on What I Received Not Ordered

By Atomic Nectar

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Fancy Heat® Piezoelectric Ignition Portable Butane Stove:

Technically, I am at a 3.5 for stars.

We bought two of these stoves for camping. We were trying to find a better stove than our Coleman single burner dual camp fuel stove I have used for years. Our biggest frustation with the Coleman was that it required pumping to prime it, then was a manual ignition (lighter or matches to start after opening valve). The second was that the burner sat on top of a small fuel tank, elevating the pots and pans about 7" above the surface. I liked that it reminded me of Apollo Lunar Lander. With that said, it has always served our needs.

So, I ordered two of these Fancy Heat 10,000 BTU stoves from Staples... or so we thought. Shipping time was noted at 7-10 days. For us it arrived in one shipping day. We ordered on a Thursday morning and it arrived on Friday afternoon.

When I opened the shipping box, I immediately noticed two plastic cases with little padding for shipment. Everything looked ok, except the plastic cases were so filthy. It looked like they had been sitting in a garage for years.

I opened the cases and inside were two shiny black stoves. Hmm... I thought I ordered yellow. Checked online, yes, I did order yellow.

I pulled the stove out and it read, "ACE Portable Gas Stove". Model # ACE-07. Hmmm... not what I ordered.

I went through the manual, looked over the entire stove and saw no mention of BTUs. I went online and found nothing about BTUs for this ACE-07.

After much consideration, I decided to put it to the test. Here is what I used for the test:

1- 4 liter 18/10 stainless steel pot (8"D)
1- iphone app timer
4 cups of cold water from the tap in pot

The three outdoor stoves were tested outside, 80 degrees, pretty calm. Our electric range was inside the kitchen, but all the windows in the house were open, so the temperature was close to the same.

ACE Stove (both tested within seconds of each other)
Bottom Pan Boil: 6 minutes
Top of Water Rolling Boil: 6.5 minutes

COLEMAN Feather 400B
Bottom Pan Boil: 9 minutes
Top of Water Rolling Boil: 10 minutes, 10 seconds

HOME Frigidaire Electric Range
Bottom Pan Boil: 4.5 minutes
Top of Water Rolling Boil: 5 minutes 10 seconds

So the boil test had this ACE-07 boiling water about 90 seconds after our home range, and much quicker than the coleman we have used for several years.

I would knock this down 1.5 stars to 3.5 strictly based on the overall quality of the body. The body is a flexible pushing with your finger against it and the paint finish will obviously wear out quick, likely more from flaking from the heat than anything else. The removable drip pan appears to be cast iron with a quality enamel coating on it. This is good.

The burner started every time we started it and all jets worked fine. As I said, I tested both.

In all honesty, I find them to be what you would expect for a $35 camp stove, though it would have been nice if they went with a better quality metal body and enamel coated finish. I would opt for the Stainless Steel if you can. I really do see this scratching and flaking quite easily. This is the major reason why I knock it down to an overall 3.5.

I was a bit surprised that my Coleman was very slow in boil time. That explains why I struggle to wait up in the morning when camping... I can't get my espresso maker hot enough, quick enough to wake up.

The other downside to this stove is the size. It is fairly large. The Coleman packs very well at 170 cubic inches, while these take up a hefty 672 cubic inches, quite a bit larger.

If you are looking for a light duty stove for ocassional cookouts, a light duty catering stove, or a car camp stove (that you care for), then this will likely serve you well at $35. Dependability means a lot to me, fortunately with a bunch of Staples rewards, I can risk it after paying $10 for the two.
