I've gone the Coleman stove route, and I think that pressurized fuels are not such a great idea.
My Coleman stove was an older, liquid fuel model that leaked and nearly burned my galley up.
I replaced it with a propane model, but you'll find that the Schraeder valves in the little 1lb. bottles are very cheap and often will not re-seal after disconnecting the bottle from the stove. This is also dangerous.
A fire in the confined space of a 22-25 foot sailboat is scary, trust me, I've done it. Don't cheap out, buy an Origo, or an Origo "heat pal". A Magna rail-mounted propane grill isn't as risky, because it's not inside the confines of the cabin.
Just a thought.
