I need a portable two burner gas stove

MattieP | Sep 24, 201809:15 PM     10

I've read a lot of threads here about the butane burners but I've never cooked with butane. How does it differ from propane? I will be using this burner in the garage with the doors open during our frequent power outages.

I have an old two burner campstove, propane, but it stands pretty tall, and then a stock pot on that and it's a reach for me to see into it. For that reason, I'm attracted to the butane because they seem to be less tall. I'm a little put off by the short duration of the canister and the price though. The burners on my propane stove aren't level either, another reason I want to switch to a different stove.

If you use a propane portable, have you found one that more compact? Is there a reason to prefer propane over butane or vice versa? Are there any preferred brands?

I'm linking to one similar to mine, except mine is a double burner.
