Disappointed in description, packability and durability

I have used a friends Jetboil stove and thought this was a good comparable purchase. The device shown in the photo to hang the stove was not included so that was the first disappointment when I opened the stove. I figured, I could get along without it, and took the stove on a weekend backpacking trip. I was hoping that the stand, burner unit and small fuel canister could all be packed inside the unit, but there was no room for the stand to be placed inside.. I used a cut-off toilet paper roll to protect the piezo igniter so I could place the fuel canister inside the unit, but regardless, the igniter was broken when I needed to use it. This really needs better engineering to make this a trouble free system. With all that said, I did use the stove, lighting the flame with a lighter, and it boiled water in a speed comparable to the Jetboil. I would recommend spending the additional money and getting a Jetboil if you want this type of unit.
