While able to produce very high temperatures it can also produce very low ones without the risk of the flame going out, so you can melt butter or slowly cook your scrambled eggs. It works great for simmering as well.
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.
There are many accessories available for the stove that allows it to be used for various cooking purposes. These mix & match accessories include grill boxes, griddles, reversible cast iron grills, and even a pizza oven cover.
