Pink Picnic Stove on Ebay


It's very Fifties/Sixties, very Outdoorsy, and very Pink: Coleman Pink Single Burner Picnic Stove

I see these often on the auctions, and almost all are offered at very reasonably low bids (I could be mistaken but I'm pretty sure that your typical nostaligic outdoorsman manly-man-type isn't much interested in pink stoves. Undoubtedly when Coleman marketed these they were aiming for the manly-man-type's Better-Half. There was also a version of the same picnic stove in the more classic Coleman green.

Because it's a bit different than the typical camp stove, it caught my eye... just because I like the mid-century feel of this. I can see a family packing up one of these into the station wagon for an afternoon getaway at the lake.

Mind you, if you decide to bid on this, the stove was designed to use small LP gas cans that popped in easily for the stove fuel, also sold by Coleman. And I haven't seen these sold since I was a kid. So... unless you're handy and can rig-up only a SAFE means to hook up to a modern LP gas canister (which I am only guessing can be done - I'm not making any claims and taking NO responsibilities here!), remember that if you decide to bid that this will likely be useful only for a display item only.

Don't you hate it when you make a post and no one responds? lol... I've been striking out the past couple myself. ;)


I have camping gear from my days as a certified field worker. I'm also certified in Wilderness Survival and First Aid training. I hide my Certified Nuts card.

I know how to get water in the desert. I know how to treat a head wound. I also know you don't cut and suck snakes bites hee hee...

But the thought of spending one more night in a stiff wind, trying to cower over a cook stove in a flapping tent (yeah, I know you are not supposed to cook in tents, but I had to eat!) even with this fine vintage pink Coleman makes my toes curl, and not in a good way. *Eeep!*

Awwwww... but it'll put hair on your chest! *doing my caveman "rawrrrrr!"*

I don't have any certification cards except my certified nut one, but I've been prowling around the edges of civilization for far too long now :D

Btw... Never ever cook inside your tent, that's a fire hazard! LoL

I put in my "rawwwrrr" time lol...

Fluffy bed with TV and shower from now on.

I'll hook you up with my remote field work people if you want to step in for me. =P
