This stove has a verry good burner design, similar like the professional brand's (MSR, Primus).
It haze a metal plunger on the pump like primus, Verry sturdy! (MSR has plastic pump's can break easy)
It's easy to pre heat it, just release some fuel. Turn it back off. light the fuel, just before the fire goes out, open the valve. Here your stove burn's.
Nice flame control also! You can simmer nicely.
The connection on the metal mesh tube is rubbish!
It's just a tube that's connected with brass fittings by a rubber insert.
But because the tension on the rubber isn't hard enough, it can leak. I used some Teflon tape around the brass fitting's & thighten the metal around the rubber insert with pliers = so no leaks anymore and a very good sealing!
For the price you get a very wel designed stove that is Very sturdy, with a nice flame control, much better than the expensive MSR one's (there cheapest stove's don't have any kind of flame control, just on & off).
If you like hiking, just buy it!
And look at your friends faces when you tell them the price!
The only thing bad is the connection on the hose, but anybody can fix this in less then 5 min.
