I saw this stove on several websites and YouTube videos and decided to order on as the price is very reasonable. I have mostly been an alcohol stove guy and still am. But the canister stoves are quite a bit quicker in boiling water and they can simmer very easily. I know I can do these things with an alcohol stove but this canister stove is winning me over. I have used MSR’s Pocket Rocket and it is a fine stove but this thing has a piezo igniter and costs about 1/5th the price.
I don’t have any complaints about the stove. It has worked flawlessly for me on several outings. I get a full boil on 16 oz. of water in about 4 to 5 minutes and I don’t crank it all the way up. Adjustments are nice and smooth for a simmer or a jet plane engine high. Yes, on high it is noisy but I don’t cook that way so the noise is very light.
I can’t find anything that would make me not recommend this product. The only downside is the wait time for shipping as it ships from Hongkong, which took about 3 weeks. In fact, I have ordered two more to give to family members.
