Bought this as a last minute purchase to replace a 15 year old Camping Gaz Turbo 270 stove for which gas cartridges were no longer available. Needless to say I am very impressed at the performance of this stove. I verified the weight with a scale...amazing that it is so light and compact (3 times lighter than my old stove). The peizo lighter is an awesome feature. It is like a blow torch at full blast and boiled 8 oz of water in less than a minute. I was also able to turn the stove very low for simmering with no issues. It will operate with any standard small screw-type connector iso butane/propane cartridge (MSR, JetBoil, etc) so finding fuel should be no problem when traveling (unlike my old stove). Pot stability seemed average for this style of stove, but never felt precarious. Have not been able to test in cold weather or windy conditions yet. For the money, I don't think there is a better stove value out there right now.
