I have owned this stove for over five years and it still works great. I use it on 4 or 5 backpacking trips each year. It heats up the food much better than some other, and much more expensive, stoves since the burner is pretty large.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Groundskeeper from Washington, PA on Wednesday, October 14, 2015These things have been around for a long time and are tried and true. As with most products there is good and not good so start with the not good- Heavy for UL backpacking, it came exactly at the stated weight of 8 ounces, easy to get stoves in the 3 ounce or less range for 30 to 40 dollars. Also a tad bulky. The pot stand has sharp corners, need to be careful when packing. The good, what I like and why it gets 5 stars- Bullet proof tough, stainless steel construction, if something happened that damaged the stove as to not work your already dead from that accident and don't need it. The edges of the pot stand can be filed to smooth out the sharp and pointed parts. This stoves simmers better than most, boils water fast, fuel efficient, has a large and solid pot stand and is not cantankerous in the least. If I car camp then hike a few days then back to car camp it is a great only stove to take because of the fact it's an excellent base camp and day hike stove and will suffer the few extra ounces when backpacking for a few days.

Reviewed by avid hiker from Here on Wednesday, September 4, 2013For the money, there is no second best. Have had it less than one year, and can't comment on its durability, but so far it's worked every time I have put it to use.
Reviewed by rraine from nevada on Thursday, August 1, 2013great little stove, a little heavy for backpacking. overall, a great buy..
Reviewed by okie from Oklahoma on Monday, July 8, 2013Works perfectly. Sturdy packs fairly small. There are smaller ones, but this was stable and cheap. Can't beat it for the price.
Question & Answer
“Will this stove fit inside the Primus-AluTech-Trek-Kettle-1L? The spec dimension width given for this stove is 4-7/8" and the spec dimension width given for the kettle is 5". Thanks.”
The stove will fit into the kettle with room to spare.
“Having a difficult time finding actual Primus fuel canisters. Has anyone used another brand of fuel, and if so, any issues or recommendations? Instructions say use only Primus...”
I use which ever brand is cheapest and available. Primus, MSR, Snow Peak, JetBoil, Coleman. The threads and valve sizes are identical.
It can use other fuel canisters. Thanks for asking and have a great day.
