Svea 123 Stove
- Product Review (submitted on June 23, 2012):
- I bought my first Svea 123R before Aerostich started carrying them. That said, these are bulletproof little cookers. My brother got one back in 1975 and has only replaced one part since - the fuel cap gasket. It's a little heavy. But, it has only 2 moving parts that never wear out! It's all brass. So, a little polish every now and then will have it looking like new, Or let it "age" a bit to a classic patina. A few clarifications: This is the Svea 123R model with a built in jet cleaning needle. It superceded the 123 (no "R") 40+ years ago. The *burner design* is over a century old. The stove, slightly newer (mid 1950's). Get one and be ready to entertain other campers with this extremely reliable classic!
