Just back from a chilly week in Algonquin. I was looking forward to using my new Turbo 270, a nice gift, but after two meals/coffees my friend and I wondered what was wrong - 10 minutes to get a couple of cups of water to a near boil? I mentioned that it was chilly but it was not below freezing so I cannot believe that the ambient temperature was having too much of a negative effect on the stove - I presume the butane/propane mix.

We switched to our backup, my friend's Coleman single-burner (naphtha) - boiling water in 2 minutes. I'll be looking for a new stove for myself and ditching the Turbo.

This is an excellent inexpensive canister stove. I've used it on two trips to Algonquin Park in Canada, and it performed flawlessly. I don't have the piezo unit (the one that lights itself), but I don't mind putting a match to it. It's pretty stable and fairly light. One nice thing is you can remove the canister quite easily without any fuel loss. Overall, a very nice stove for the money.

Do not leave without it. It is standard gear also packed in my luggage whether a pleasure camping or a European hotel trip. Can buy the gaz in any grocery store in France. Boils a pot of water in a flash. Make your coffee in your hotel room. Or atop the mountain. Gaz is the best no-frills easy high output stove made.

This is an excellent stove. Small and compact within its case. The fuel is easy to get and use. Placed on a flat surface the stove is very stable. The flame adjustment works very well. The only downside is that the canister fails to work in very cold (below freezing) weather.

I have had this stove for five years and it has served me very well. Fuel usually lasts quite a while. The four prongs make alot more stable. I actually still favor this one over a new Primus recently recieved as a gift.
