  • Rodney S. Piedmont SC

    Likes: Extremely lightweight and compact. This stove is extremely reliable, I have used it countless times and haven't had a single issue. It can quickly boil water and has good control for simmering.

    Dislikes: I love the stove but the only downside is having to carry fuel canisters (and sometimes a spare when you're not sure how much fuel is left).

  • Ronda G. Riverview FL

    Likes: I was very excited to get this! It works great! I bought it at the same time I bought the GSI Pinnacle Dualist kit and love how it fits inside there when kayak camping. I also like that you can store your small can of gas as well. Definitely worth the price. Very light in weight and compact. Just what you need for kayak camping!

    Likes: Works as intended. Good design, lightweight, I like the plastic container.

  • Kyle M. Tahlequah OK

    Likes: I've had many friends own this stove, and none have ever had a bad experience with theirs. I can't wait to try mine out in the field. I'm a huge fan of consolidating gear to take up as little space as possible, and this is SUPER light and fits very well in my GSI Dualist cook set.

    Dislikes: As many have said, not a huge base, which can make it easy to tip your pot while cooking, but if you are only cooking in a pot for two people, this shouldn't a problem with a good, flat surface to set it on.

    Likes: I got this because the friend I hike with has had one for years.It works quickly and is incredibly light. The fuel is inexpensive, light and last very long.

    Dislikes: What's not to like?

  • Robert M G. Birmingham AL

    Likes: Sturdy and durable this little stove lives up to its reputation. I’ve used this car camping and back country camping and not had any problems. It works great in windy conditions and stays lit. Compacts easily into the protective holder and fits in my scaled down mess kit. I’m usually boiling one or two cups of water at a time and cooks it up quick.

    Dislikes: I wish I had bought it sooner.
