Great lightweight stove system.

I bought this after my jetboil broke day 2 into a 14 day trip. It is a very simple design, less moving parts equals less opportunities to break. I also bought a titanium cook set that includes a small pot and a pan that fits on as a lid. The stove, fuel, lighter, and spork all fit inside the set. I've used it to boil water and to heat up previously rehydrated meals. I believe it would work to fry an egg or rehydrated hash browns as well. I put two cubes in at a time and just blow them out when I'm done. They can be relit later. I made a wind screen out of tin foil.....also fits inside the cook set. To extend the fuel life you can also add twigs and other small pieces of fuel. I think this system is great. Can't beat the weight. The fuel is the lightest on the market and because it's solid I don't have to worry about it spilling or leaking. I haven't had a problem with the smell as everything is very contained in the cook set. If you are an experienced backpacker or used to lightweight endeavors you will be happy with this. It isn't as efficient as a Jetboil but really, do you need to boil your water in 2 minutes?
