Wow! This is only preliminary, as I bought this for an upcoming week long backpacking trip on which there will be three of us. I've only yet used it on a winter day hike where I took along enough soup for several servings for two and some tortillas; not typical trail food.
This stove did wonders. The soup was warmed in no time and as we began to eat it I took off the windshield (which cooled quickly once the stove was off) to use the frying pan/pot lid. Warm tortillas were a welcome addition to the meal. To finish, hot water was made for tea and hot chocolate. The water boiled very fast (though the elevation was 8,000+ ft).
Quick and efficient though it may be, the drawback for some may be the bulk, but for my situation it is ideal.
