Interesting handles on the pot.
it’s old, came with my house and now lives in the camp box for heat dishwater. Durable, fairly light and cools down fast.

Got my new 228 cleaned up. Had to fix one of the burner caps that kept falling off once it was lit but it ran great after that! I love these old lanterns.

Kinda stupid... probably

Never been around one and never see them... learned on one of my facebook groups that they were on sale on Amazon and actually soon to be in stock so I did the right thing and signed up for one. We shall see if I end up with one.


Price isn't too terrible (only 26x as much as my last lantern that came with a stove :dntknw:) and with it being probably the only lantern I care to buy new now that the dual fuel Northstar is extinct... might as well get while it is here to get.

My credo
Lead, Follow or get out of my way
One of those would be cool...

If I'm gonna spend any kind of bigger money on anything Coleman... it's gonna be old or one of the Sportsman Series Lanterns.

Nice, keep us posted when you get to try it out. I have kinda been interested in one of those too.

I thought the Northstar was pretty cool looking but those ridiculous mantles were so fragile, maybe that's why it's gone...? That's why I got rid of my propane Northstar. I'd probably keep a dual fuel one around if I found one but I'd never use it.

I got skunked on a $20 nickle fount 220 about a month ago. Jerk messaged me as I was pulling into the parking lot 5 min early to say he had sold it.

They do still make propane Northstars.

I kinda think liquid fuel as a whole is dying out. Led is probably even hurting propane.

Just reading through this thread and thought I'd do a craig's list for Coleman.
Never seen one of these but it's pretty cool

I have seen those drip coffee makers a few times at thrift stores. Seemed like a gimmick when a percolator is just as, or more handy.

Coleman makes some weird stuff. I saw they had a "tripod lantern holder/grill"... why you would want you food swinging around on that thing is confusing to me. Seems like a great way to lose it in the fire.

You can adjust how far from the heat you are.

Yeah, I like that part, but the grill swinging from one piece of chain is going to adjust my food right into the coals 🤣 I am almost having a panic attack thinking about scraping a hamburger patty off that thing!

At least bouncing off the poles will limit lantern swingage, especially with the bigger vents.
