Svea 123RReview by Tom
What a great stove! Light enough and small enough for motorcycle camping. Easy on fuel, too (a tankful will last all weekend). Classic design that still works. Only downside (albeit slight) is the sometimes fiddly priming. (Posted on 10/16/13)
Great stove!Review by ed
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 It superceded the 123 (no "R") 40+ years ago.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! (Posted on 6/23/12)

Over the years I’ve used several different stoves. First was a Svea 123 (#4146). Used probably ten years, and still have, all ready to go, inside an old Sigg Tourister cook kit. But to prime aSvea one must pre-heat the burner by spilling a little fuel into it’s burner cup and lighting it. When it’s just warm enough you crack open the jet for a self-sustaining (and loudish) flame.

It was replaced by a Coleman Peak 1 which was configured similarly but had a priming pump so it was easier to pressurize and light. Unfortunately, this model was discontinued a few years ago. The closest comparable stove available now is the Optimus Multi-Fuel (#4145).

For the last ten years I've been trying to like stoves with the removable tanks but can't quite get there. I’ve used several models and brands. They are excellent for some applications, but the extra step of connecting the tank to the burner has sometimes been a problem because I fumble and get gasoline on my hands, which is the last thing you want when you are hungry and about to be handling food.

Gas canister stoves are convenient, lightweight and clean, with replacement canisters widely available. We sell two good ones, but I still like being able to siphon fuel from my bike right into a stove when needed. A quick-disconnect to the fuel line makes refilling stoves easier. We also sell these. (#4197 and #4128.)
