The Coleman Eventemp 3 Burner Griddle is part of the line of products from Coleman that were developed for the US Army during WWII. Noted journalist Ernie Pyle considered it one of the two most important pieces of noncombat equipment, along with the Jeep. The rigorous standards that allowed Coleman stoves to survive combat still drive the durable and reliable designs today. The only difference is that they now include convenience and performance features to make outdoor cooking as much a luxury as it can be an adventure. This Eventemp griddle is a necessity for that great morning breakfast cooking that will get you moving back to your activities with energy.
