User Review: Primus EtaPower EF
Price Paid: $110
I have just used the stove around the house, so this is a preliminary review. It comes in a case, but I'll likely leave that behind - it's a little heavy and I don't really see an advantage in using it.
This stove is fast. I heated .5 liters of water in it and went inside to get the food laying on the counter in the kitchen. The water was boiling by the time I came back maybe 30 seconds later. It's somewhat noisy at full blast, but it heats water and food so fast, you won't have it on long.
I purchased this stove over the Jetboil because I wanted something that could simmer food and cook for more than just 1 or 2 persons.
The stove, pans, and fuel all fit inside its case and strike me as a little heavy, but the rapid cooking action is supposed to reduce weight for a trip due to fuel savings.
I purchased mine at REI. My first stove had dents in the pans. Check before you leave the store...
