Don't underestimate the power of this Micron stove from Primus—it's one of the smallest around, but it puts out heat like one of the big boys. 3 fold-away supports form a 4 in.-diameter cooking surface; twisting pivots lock supports firmly in place. Unique, lever-activated piezo igniter sparks the stove to life without matches. Wide 1.5 in. mesh burner head distributes flame across its entire surface. Drawcord storage pouch included. Requires fuel canister, sold separately. Closeout.


The compact, lightweight Primus Micron Stove with Piezo Ignitor is just what you want in your cook kit for ultralight solo backpacking trips. Just screw this 3.3oz stove onto a bottle of butane, open the valve, spark the auto-ignitor, and cook yourself a well-deserved backcountry dinner. The Micron Stove's wide burner profile and adjustable flame helps you cook your dinner instead of burning it. The stable legs keep your pot upright, so you don't drop your Mac-N-Cheese in the grass.
