User Review: Primus EtaPower EF
I love this stove, I’ve been shopping for a new stove for a while and considered a Jet Boil, and I do a lot of cooking so I was going to get the pot also. It made more sense to get the Primus with a pot and a frying pan. It ended up being a lot cheaper than a Jet Boil, pot and frying pan. One of the things I like is being so squat I don't worry about it being top heavy and tipping over. The carrying case helps keep things nice and hot. Fuel lasts for a good long time.
This is a great stove but not perfect. Yes it does boil water fast but took a bit longer than the advertised time, but still faster than anything else I have used. Putting all the parts into the pot have scratched a bit of the inside, nothing bad. Now I put a cloth in it to protect the non stick coating.
One thing the Jet Boil has over this is weight, but I guess if I added in the pot and frying pan it'd weight the same. That is a trade-off that I feel was worth it. (FYI I was talking to worker at Wilderness Exchange in Berkeley and he told me that Primus actually makes the stoves for Jet Boil I just thought that was an interesting bit of info.)
BOTTOM LINE: It’s a great stove highly recommended a bit heavy but worth it if you do a lot of cooking.
