User Review: Primus OmniFuel
Price Paid: £95
The best stove to-date. This little puppy ignited first time immediately. Even when playing around adjusting the flame and the flame went out, I shot a bit more fuel onto the priming plate and re-lit it poof without a problem. I used it outside, slightly breezy at about 2 Degrees and it boiled my first Litre in 3 mins 28 secs (Using the wind shield). To maintain and clean is no bother at all, a quick wipe down and prick of the jet and done.
It started to chug a little so I gave a few additional pumps and lowered the flame for about 20 seconds then kicked it back up again and perfect, jet like flame. (The DVD says it's quite quiet... It's not LOL)
I thrashed 3 litres of water to boiling point plus played around adjusting the flame, after which time I shut it down and checked the fuel. It felt a little light but on looking inside it had used less then 10 percent of the fuel, I couldn't believe it, awesome.
The simmer is excellent compared to how hot it can get, it's not the BEST simmer but all it requires is a few additional stirs of your stew to prevent any sticking :-)
I was using unleaded petrol and am quite confident that even with uk fuel prices (51p to fill the supplied canister) it's cheap to run and it will keep running for a good few days before I need to refill.
It's a tad heavy but damn it's solid so I don't care. The price as far as I am concerned is well worth it. Highly recommended.
