I bought this after seeing my friend's Jet Boil, which is the same type of stove with very slight variations. This one takes a couple seconds longer to boil water -- and I mean really only a couple seconds, not a really noticeable difference in actual use. They both boil water extremely fast. The...

Reviewed by happy kayaker from california on Wednesday, November 13, 2013We love innovative stove ideas for compact and lightweight stoves. We planned a week long kayak trip where space was at a premium. Our stove worked perfectly and was very fuel efficient.
Reviewed by Just another enthusiest... from Colorado on Monday, October 28, 2013Took this stove hunting and it worked very well as expected.
It is very light and mostly sturdy.
There are a few caveats that should be mentioned.
Time to boil can vary.. It boiled water typically in about 2-2.5 minutes at over 8500 ft., this clearly depends on the start temp of the water.
The igniter is exposed to damage sitting on top of the burner but can be protected by storing the cup clicked onto the burner. Only makes the unit 2.25 inches longer. The burner also fits inside the cup for safe storage, saving the 2.25 inch additional length.
Cup attachment is via two spring clips that can be temperamental in securing and difficult to disengage when the unit is hot. Needs a fair amount grip strength and finger pressure that some individuals may struggle to achieve.
Using the 220 gram fuel canisters will not fit inside the cup for storage, but the plastic feet do fit the larger fuel can and the feet store within the cup easily.
I really liked this unit and the price paid. If the price was higher/equal to the Jetboil, I might consider the Jetboil instead...?
Reviewed by Kibbles and Bits from Ohio on Wednesday, October 2, 2013I recently took this stove on a 4 day backpacking trip in Glacier National Park. It was light, packable, and performed exactly as it is supposed to. It boils water quickly and with little fuel. One small canister was more than enough fuel for 2 people. I bought another one for my daughter for her birthday.

Reviewed by spiff d from San Diego on Saturday, August 24, 2013Just received the unit, try to wash the inside of the pot before any field usage. It won't hold any water, because there is a hole at the bottom!
After inspection, on the pot and bottom ETA fin part, a very bad weld spot left a big crack/hole.
Such bad defect and quality control, will send it back for refund, don't want risk with anther unit that might failed in field.
Question & Answer
“I'm not familiar with the Primus or JetBoil fuels. Could you use an isobutane cannister of fuel, or does it really need to be the Primus or JetBoil versions?”
I used a Gigapower canister with mine and it worked just fine.
Hanging the assembled stove from something. I'm not sure why you'd want to do that, though.
I did a rough calculation, and in room temperature conditions you could boil about 10L of water with one 100g fuel canister
“Where do you purchase the fuel cannisters and how does it attach to the heating system?|Do you heat the water with the insulated jacket on the container|Thanks,|Dave”
The fuel canister attaches to the bottom of the burner ( screw attachment) and I believe you can buy the fuel canister pretty much anywhere.
Get Primus triple fuel on-line e.g. at Cobra Tactical or use the small Jet Boil canister (3.5 oz) or Snow Peak Giga Power 3.5 oz canister both found at REI. Giga Power fits inside better - same diameter as Jet Boil but shorter.|I boil with the jacket on and haven't had a problem.
