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.

Price Paid: 18 Euros/25 bucks
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.

Price Paid: ? too long ago
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.
