- Over the years this is the best stove I've owned.
Likes: This stove has never let me down. I have used it multiple times at 9k to 10k with out issue. It has a super stable base that can hold small and large pots and cups. I love how easily it folds up and away and the new regulator that allows for precise tuning of the flame is great! Such a nice upgrade from the older models. Buy it, you won't be sorry.
Likes: It was everything I hoped it would be, and wanted. It was small and had a hard carrying case (which I could also slide a mini lighter into). The four pot supports (rather than the three that many stoves have) held the pot well and was very stable. It was easy to light, and light in weight.
Dislikes: I liked everything about this stove.
Likes: Very light. You can just throw it in your pack and forget about it until you need it. Sure, it's not the lightest stove out there, but it's definitely the most stable and inexpensive out of them.
Dislikes: Only thing I didn't like about this was that it didn't come with the windscreen accessory, not a major issue though.
Likes: This stove is extremely compact and sturdy enough to accommodate the small pots and pans I take on my solo trips.
Dislikes: No major complaints; it fulfilled my expectations.
Likes: extremely compact and lightweight.
Dislikes: doesn't handle wind well (without windscreen)
