Pros:
Great little stove. I also purchased the 46371 stove. This one feels more solid. Nothing rattles. I love the 3 prong for heating my coffee mug.
Cons:
The piezo unit is held on by one screw so it would tedder a little. I solved this buy filling a small notch where the piezo unit has a contact point touching the brass body. Now it is solid and I love it.
Other:
TIP: The swing out arm will seem loose when new. Don't go hacking it like I did using a hammer and roll pin punch to "tighten" it. Because it will tighten itself when the metal heats up as you use it the first time.
Also, the entire piezo unit came come off and works on its own. Can be used to ignite other gas stoves.
Bottomline:
Buy it. Perfect for bug out bags and everyday use. I will never buy a brand name stove again.
