  • Exactly as expected from an expensive one

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    In comparisson to other gas stoves of this type, very very cheap. I was looking for this for a while and this one is just so many times cheaper as any alternative!
    Burn everything you find, gasoline, Diesel, butane gas, ..
    Build quality is very good for the price, no remarks.
    The stove itself folds down pretty small.

    Cons:

    Needs a bit of getting used to, to get the stove running, but it's not a real con, though just the working principle of this type of stove. You get the hang of it after a few tries. Also there's a pretty good English manual that explains how to get it running!

    OtherThoughts:

    Very fuel efficient, i've tried to boil 1liter of water, and my estimate is that I could repeat this almost 10 times before refueling! I don't think you get the same amount of energy out of a normal small sized butane bottle. If you're a bit thoughtfull about your meals on a trip, I think you can eat warm dinners for a week with one bottle.

    Bottomline:

    If you're looking for this type of thing, buy it, you're never going to regret it!
