Re: I know nothing. Is this stove salvageable?

It might be apples and oranges. Pressurized and non pressurized two different animals.

Hi Sean. You have an Origo 1500 just like it says. New ones are $250 at the usual discount marine places, plus extra for a gimbal.

You are missing the grill. It is possible that the canister (aka "land mine") is shot if it is leaking or contaminated. New canisters are available but are expensive enough you're probably better off replacing the whole stove if it's shot, especially if you'll have to buy a grill.

There are instruction manuals available in PDF form online.

I am presently in the market for an Origo 4000. They are, unfortunately, discontinued, and the replacement will not fit my available space.

Re: I know nothing. Is this stove salvageable?

FYI, Saw the most ad's and lowest prices for used Origo 4000's on the Seattle Craig's List. Was looking for one so haunted all the Major Boating area Craig's lists on both coasts. Ended up with a 2000 instead as a better fit for my cramped galley. Got the 2000 on Ebay as they were almost non existant on the used scene compared to the 2000's which were relatively plentiful. Of course you're at the mercy of seller's for availability when buying used.

The cut out for the 2000 and 4000 is deeper than the cut out for a Homestrand pressure stove. You'll probably have to do some surgery if you are replacing an old pressure stove with the 4000. The foot print is the same but the cut out is different. Might consider that if you can't find a 4000. The 4100 is only a couple of inches longer than the 4000 IIRC so doesn't much more space.

"45 minutes later your kettle will simmer."
Come on now, hasn't everybody heard the line from the movie "Jaws"?

"I think we're gonna need a smaller kettle."

We made JIFFY POP all the time on our origo, no problem at all.

And after several boats, all fitted with origo stoves, we never noticed any smell. I keep hearing about smell in posts, but that has never been my experience.

As for speed, the origo makes no sound. So it often seems like its not even on. But it is. I never had an issue with time boiling water. Even the hottest stove will take some time to boil a big pot (for noodles). I question how much of the negativity towards origo's is just preconception, and how much is just leftover from the previous generation of pressure stoves?

I also had trouble buying a new ORIGO 4000 for one of my recent boats. Until I learned that in Canada, they now go by the name COOKMATE. The COOKMATE 4200 I bought was identical in every way to the ORIGO 4000, except the name.

The pictures (below) are the COOKMATE. You can read the name (in red) in the second picture, bottom left hand side.

Re: I know nothing. Is this stove salvageable?

A quick search reveals that COOKMATE is no longer available. And their web site is gone too.

Re: I know nothing. Is this stove salvageable?

I'm overwhelmed by the amount of responses. I only have time to skim these now. It seems like it's worth at least cleaning up and searching for pinholes so I'm hopefully going to take it off of the boat tonight and Ill look through these more closely then.

Thank you to everyone for your help!

Re: I know nothing. Is this stove salvageable?

Should I use some sort of cleaning agent when scrubbing the rust off?

If you can take the unit apart, you'll be amazed how clean they'll get if you submerge them in fresh coke-cola for 24hours. Just wipe, wash and dry afterward!

Steel wool. Fine grade. Lots of elbow grease. If you really want, a little soapy water at the end for a nice shine.

I think you will be surprised and happy at how nice it turns out, and how easy it was to get there. I'm hoping you post some "after" pictures.

I suppose you could check for pinholes this way: submerge the cannister UPSIDE DOWN in water, and just look for air bubbles. In general you don't want water in the cannister, so be careful. A little water won't hurt, as it will mix with the fuel and be gone soon enough.

On second thought, just look closely at the cannister for pinholes. Or fill with fuel and put it on a paper towel...look for wet spots/leaks. BTW, FILL means less than half full. To be sure, hold the cannister on its side, and no fuel should come out...thats full. And always remove the cannister from the stove to fill.

NOTE: You don't need to buy expensive stove fuel, available for one arm and one leg at any boat store. Visit a hardware or better yet a paint store. The meth need not be pure or filtered...any cheap bulk grade will do. My experience is that 4 litres costs about the same as 1 litre. For me, 4 litres was a two year supply and cost less than $10 cdn.
