View Full Discussion 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.

If one got one of their adapters, one should then be able to run the Gracie Twin stove on one canister.
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.
What kind of hoses would you use with the 2-way adaptor to run the stove with a single canister? I have been searching the internet and can't seem to find one. I have a deluxe twin and really enjoy the stove.
I don't know of any hoses available to run the Slim Twin or Deluxe Twin on one canister.
I think it is possible to run the Gracie Twin on one canister, but I do not know of a way to run the Slim Twin or the Deluxe Twin on one canister. It would be nice if Kovea sold such an apparatus. I may suggest it to them.
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.
