Question Origo vs Cookmate

I was in at Genco Marine this past week looking at some cordage and was asking about an Origo 4100CB (The one with the cutting board). The saleslady asked if I had heard about the new Cookmate 4200 stove. It's almost the exact same design as the Origo, same dimensions and same fuel. $100 bucks less.

Any thoughts...

Looks like the same stove. I am happy with my Origo 3000 which I picked up at my local West Marine store when they were closing them out. I would go for it.

I've had Origo combo no-pressure alcohol/110V electric, both earlier versions of the current 4300, in my last two boats (over the last 20 years) and would buy the same unit again - they last forever.

Thanks very much. Both the Origo and Cookmate need an opening slightly larger than the Homerange I just ripped out. Much easier to make a hole bigger.

very simular

You may remeber the controls being fairly hot on the Origo when you try to use them during stove operation(especially when your using it for a heat source) Open up your cookmate and you'll notice an extra piece of stainless tacked on behind the controls, it's a deflector to make the controls comfortable to use during operation.
Thoughful eh

I've got the new Cookmate. Works great. I've owned Orego in the past and can't see any difference. It would indeed appear that you give up nothing by spending $100 less. I'm happy with mine. I used it quite a bit this season (bought it this spring). Don't know how it will fare long term but don't see anything to lead me to think that it won't last a long time.
