From the description: "and each burner head comes with two adapters to support your preferred type of fuel: isobutane (direct connection), butane, or propane."
Could you come up with a different adapter arrangement to connect it to your house's natural gas piping? Probably. Is the stove's orifice suitable for natural gas? Maybe. Will your homeowners' insurance company and utility company be happy with the idea? Probably not. Does that seem to be in conflict with the concept of a portable stove? Um, yeah.

The flexibility to use different types of gas canisters is intriguing, but in my mind having to use two canisters negates the entire point. Might as well just carry two single burner stoves. For lightweight car camping, I've had good results from a basic Coleman "fold and go" two burner which is cheaper, lighter and smaller than this. Although it can't run on isobutane, propane is cheaper and more widely available anyway, and works better in the cold. I actually refill mine off my grill tank with a simple adapter (technically not supposed too...) Only reason I can see to run isobutane on a camp stove is to use up old half empty canisters you don't want to throw in a backpack.

Not being able to use both burners with one fuel source is kind of a deal breaker. I'm not sure why the proper hoses aren't included. It's the main way someone would expect to use a stove like this.

It's a fascinating stove. With the adapters, it can burn basically any of the three canister types found in the US (100% propane car camping type, 100% butane restaurant type, or propane-isobutane-butane backpacking type). That's kind of cool. I like how it really is very slim.
If however the legs had any lack of stability, that would be very very bad as someone else observed in one of the comments.
It is a bit of an odd design to need two canisters in order to run both burners. Still, that's no worse than having two single burner stoves, and arguably, this stove would give one a much greater cooking area.
Their Gracie Twin allows for liquid feed gas and has two hoses. Gracie Twin: http://kovea.com/product/gracie-twin-stove/
If one got one of their adapters, one should then be able to run the Gracie Twin stove on one canister. http://kovea.com/product/2-way-adapter/
No such single canister option exists for the Slim Twin. With the Slim Twin, you'll have two partial canisters. You can't just use one completely, you have to use two separate canisters which then leaves you with two partial canisters -- although maybe that's no big deal with car camping.

You can get them from peakway. They make a bunch of them, either that or get some brass metric fittings, some steel braided tube and make your own hoses. A typical metal fabricator should even be able to make you brass adapters with a mill.

This twin model w/ liquid injection compatibility due to having the generator tubes over the tops of the burners would be a better choice on Massdrop.

So, if I'm understanding correctly, you have to use two fuel canisters in order to use both burners? I could pay $120 for this Slim Twin at 10.8 lbs. Or I could use my Coleman 2-burner camp stove which cost 2/3 as much at about the same weight as the Slim Twin with only one fuel type but also only one canister for both burners. Or I could buy two Spiders for about 2/3 the money and well under 1/10 the weight. Not seeing any benefit here. What am I missing?

Seems like the bottom fuel connect would be cumbersome.
Mar 11, 2017
Yes, it does. What would concern me - without having ever seen this in person - is if a leg were to fold up with a heavy load of food up top. In that event you'd have to hope that the canister connection is not damaged and would leak fuel while still running. I think I'd get an extension fuel hose and hook them up that way...two birds with one stone and since you have to pack the canisters elsewhere anyway, it would be easy to tuck the hose in with them.
