Tricky to use
Featherweight, built-in stabilizer legs and pot legs - stove stability can be important with flaming alcohol. It felt a good bit safer to me than the flaming open cat-can stove.
Takes a long time to get going and the flames to sprout/bloom. I also found it took longer to boil 2C than expected. I used a homemade aluminum sheet pan windscreen. I've read the trick is to hold a lighter/match flame underneath for a bit to speed it up and set the windscreen very close. Will try that next.
Very lightweight, easy to use, took a while for flame to bloom out of the jets, almost 6 mins!
long bloom time
Great minimalist alcohol stove. If you're cooking for 1. Used it to make coffee and prepare something basic for food. Reasonable burn time for the 2oz of alcohol.
Slight learning curve trying to have your cup/ pot (I use the GSI Halulite Minimalist) center on the supports.
This stove is very light and packs small. Easy to use. The specs seem to be right on as far as burn/boil time goes. Seems durable and I have no doubt that it will last for awhile.
Quality control is lacking. Some of the welds for the legs are not straight and there are a few rough edges, nothing that hurts performance, just would have liked to seen a better finnished product.
Small & light weight, easy to use
