This is an initial look at the Primus Tupike stove after having tested it for 4 days in Death Valley this month. Right out of the box this is a beautiful piece of gear and in some ways it almost seems too nice to beat up on the trail. Our initial impression is that this two burner camp stove has a great design aesthetic and is solidly built, giving the impression it will last. Obviously time will tell and we’ll give a longer term (6 month) update in 2021. In general, a camp stove will last us approximately a year before failure, so we have high hopes for this one.

Pros:

  • Light weight and slim build
  • Burners are powerful and heat up liquid and food quickly
  • Solidly built and great design aesthetic
  • Built in ignition
  • Easy to clean design
  • Doesn’t rattle

Cons:

  • Side wind screens need to be bigger for windy conditions
  • Price
  • A this price it should come with carrying case as standard
  • Cooks fast and hot, so food has to be watched (notable, but not necessarily a con)

FEATURES

  • Dual burners allow you to cook multiple pots at different temperatures
  • Piezo ignition, no lighter required
  • The lid and side windscreens ensure steady heat for cooking, even in windy conditions
  • A stainless-steel body, oak laths and brass details provide extra strength and ages beautifully 
  • Designed to be carried, the wood-trimmed handle locks the stove closed
  • Removable pot support and drip tray for easy cleaning
  • Included non-stick griddle plate grills, toasts, melts cheese, and is easy to clean
  • Invented in Sweden, made in Europe
  • Gas NOT included
