Oatmeal is fine, but eating it three meals a day when you're camping isn't all that appetizing. Eureka's Spire LX Stove makes it easy to get gourmet with two 10,000 BTU burners that can fit a 10-inch and 11-inch pot side by side for smooth cooking. And since perfectly cooking a filet of salmon requires a bit more finesse than flash-cooking the usual maple and brown sugar mix, Eureka teamed up with the experts over at Jetboil to give the Spire LX an intuitive and easy-to-use simmer control, making overcooked fish and burnt on the outside and raw in the middle steaks a thing of the past. Better yet, Eureka teamed up with JetBoil to create the JetLink accessory port which, when teamed up with the available JetLink hose, allows you to join the Spire to JetBoil or Eureka stoves together and run them both off the same fuel canister.

Bought this stove from Backcountry.com after seeing it in a local store. I had never heard of it but it seemed to be a pretty good stove and I felt it was time to upgrade to something better than my old 2-burner Coleman propane stove of 15+years. Stove arrived very damaged and Backcountry.com immediately started the return process and sent me a new one. Once I received it, I unpacked it and saw my first issue. It has very nice rubber feet / levelers that you have to screw on to the bottom of the case. This wouldn't be a big deal except that the size specs on the manufacturer website don't include the size of the feet in the overall dims and I had a tight space I was going to store this stove in my camper and it wouldn't fit with the feet on. They add about 5/8" to the ht and I based my purchase on the advertised dims. There is no storage area for the regulator which I thought was odd since my Colemans have always had a spot for them. So I basically store the feet and regulator in a small bag elsewhere in the camper. The build seems ok, but the sheet metal is not as thick as other stoves I have had and feels a little flimsy but I like the corner protectors. It does simmer very well as advertised, but sometimes the flame is so low, you can't tell if it's even on. My biggest issue along with the size discrepancy is the fact the piezo type igniter basically worked one time so far. After turning the knob ten times to start the stove, I use a match to light it. And it is pretty loud when trying to ignite it with the knob so if you have other campers nearby at night or in the early am, they probably don't appreciate it. So, for the current price I would not recommend this stove. Whether I return it or not is TBD at the moment, might not be worth the hassle.
Ok. but not great.

I bought this stove for a recent car camping trip my family was going on. My first impression was that the stove is beefier than many other stoves. It seems like it is more sturdy and probably won't get dented and beat up as much. We got to our destination and the spark ignition would not work. We just had to use a lighter to get it started. One we got it started, it did a good job of cooking food. It can boil water really quick as well as go low enough to cook pancakes without burning them. I ended up returning it and getting a new one. The new one came with a broken latch. I was able to mostly get it somewhat functional. The quality that this stove is made with does not jive with the high price point. Currently debating about keeping this or returning it and going with a camp chef.
Good stove but...

The housing of the stove is solid and very well built, more bomber than similar stoves in my opinion. Challenging wind has not been a problem. The burners also have very precise simmer control, although it would be nice if they were a bit larger in surface area (this applies to pretty much every stove like this however). Really easy cleanup.
It it would be a five star review until last night (fourth outing with the stove). One of the burner control knobs totally seized up (luckily in the off position), and during an attempt to release it to use the burner the knob torqued/snapped off the metal spindle of the knob that drives the valve, so now I have a large one burner stove.
I suppose now be looking into a warranty claim through Backcountry. Wish me luck!
