Product Description

Simple and strong, the GaZ Bleuet 206 stove has 2 foldable arms and is equipped with a stabilizer base and a burner windshield (detachable)

Power: 1200W.

Speed: 7 minutes to boil 1L water

Cartridge: C206

Burn time: 2.5 - 4 hours

This is an older stove but it is reliable stable and is easy to run. Perhaps a good find on Ebay or other web-auction site.

Fuel Availability

This stove burns Isobutane

Butane and twenty percent propane which is sold in light steel canisters. It has replaced straight butane since it ignites in outside air temperatures down to about 15º F (-10º C). It is the most convenient and clean-burning fuel for normal conditions since you just strike a match and turn on the stove.

Isobutane is mainly sold in two incompatible formats: canisters manufactured by Camping Gaz-Bluet, a French company that dominates the gas stove market, and more or less industry standard canisters sold by EPI (British), Primus (Swedish), MSR and Coleman (American), and Olicamp (Chinese).

Gaz-Bluet fuel canisters are practically everywhere in continental Europe, widely available in outdoor shops in the U.S., Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, and somewhat available in sixty-two other countries.

winemanvanworthless piece of crap

Voted 1/5

I owned one of the older GAZ models that I bought in France and traveled all over the place with it. It was great and it was easy to find the cannisters. That one broke, so I bought this one and it never worked right. It took forever to boil water for a simple cup of tea. It ruined a few trips.
