Pro Works in extreme conditions
Because of the steady fuel pressure this stove will perform well in unusual weather conditions found when hiking on mountains. Cold temperatures, levels as high as 10 000 feet above sea level and even an almost empty gas canister will not affect the flame.
Pro Uses little fuel
Because of the relatively low heat output and the fuel pressure valve the stove uses little fuel. One canister of fuel will last about an hour when using the burner on maximum power and a replacement canister only costs around 12 dollars or even less when buying a bulk of them.
Pro Decent cooking power
Each of the burner outputs 10000 BTUs so it can be used in most of the cases like boiling water and simmering food. However it will take almost twice as much time to fry meat compared to stoves with higher BTUs.
Pro Can cook a meal for a family
The stove easily fits two pans, one up to 10 inches the second one up to 12 inches. This means you can cook simultaneously enough food to feed a family.
Pro Can be used in windy conditions
Thanks to the wind guards you can safely use the stove in windy conditions without the risk that the flame will be blow out.
Con Imprecise flame control
The gas controls are imprecise so it’s hard to set the desired flame intensity.
Con No ignition system
There’s no ignition system so you need to light it up with a match or a lighter.
Con No carrying handle
There’s no dedicated varying handle on the stove. While there is a recess in the side where you can grab to carry the stove, it’s better to buy a separate carrying case.
