Really happy with this stove. Used on a week camping in Wales for making tea, breakfasts and dinners. It is easy to use and clean. It also worked well even though it was windy and we didn't have any additional wind protection.
The gas pipe was a little tricky to attach but I guess that is better than it being easy/loose. Also it wanted to tip over a bit before we got the lid secured with the little arms so just be wary of that when setting up.
Otherwise we're chuffed!

Poor quality generally. On its first outing a screw holding the lid became loose and subsequently lost. Only one hob lights using the ignitor, the other hob and grill require matches. The grill is pretty much useless, it took several minutes and constant manoeuvring of 1 slice of bread to get it toasted.

Bought this stove after reading the good comments in the reviews the two gas jobs worked fine but as for the grill total waste of time needn't be there for what good it was

Probably the best one out there but not without issues.....
Bought this as a replacement for an older stove - its quite solid made and the gas rings are pretty powerful compared to my older stove. Its very far from perfect though.
The lid on mine contacts the igniter button when closed and has put a small dent in the lid. The stays that hold the lid open are not set up properly and cause the lid to be a bit bent when the lid is propped open. The lid itself gets fearsomely hot when cooking on the stove and the plastic catches that lock the lid down are perishers for getting your fingers nipped. Piano catches would have been a better choice. The hob element that supports the pans will discolour badly on use. After a week of cooking on it mine looks awful. Burnt black all over and it was clean every day too. To top off the poor design the handle thats set into the base to carry it is on the opposite side to the gas connector meaning when you are carrying it the gas connector is in danger of getting bounced into the ground - surely they could have thought this out.
My biggest complaint though with it is the grill is utterly hopeless - its way too underpowered compared with my old stove and cooks in geologic timescales. All things considered I wish now I had bought the three ring burner stove as the grill on this is pointless.
On the upside its more solidly made than my old stove and looks to be more durable and the gas connector doesn't have one of those rotating connections which are often a leak fest but like all modern camping stoves its badly designed in my opinion and needs some serious sorting out.
As I say if I was buying again I would skip the grill and buy the other Vango stove with three gas rings.

Good all round cooker
We’ve had this cooker about 3 months and it is a brilliant bit of kit. Versatile and really easy to use, also packs away neatly. Only slight issue is the catches can be a bit stiff, but in a way I’d rather that than too loose! Drip tray and grill are a really neat addition.
