User Review: Primus OmniFuel
Price Paid: $85
You will amaze your friends with how quickly it boils water, although you may not be able to hear their "oohs" and "aahs" over the burner roar. However, the last thing i care about when I'm hungry in the backcountry is the noise of my stove.
I've had mine 5 years now, and it's held up well in every situation. The simmer feature is easy and functional. It's nice to keep things warm without melting them to the bottom of your pot. Fantastic if you're heading out of the country because it'll work with just about any fuel.
Yeah, it's a little heavy, but it's bomber so who cares. I'd rather it last which it has so far. Most folks sing the praises of the MSR Whisperlite, but the OmniFuel is more versatile and has the simmer. Plus, the metal pump has never broken, and almost every Whisperlite owner I've known has had their plastic ones break at inopportune times.
I like value, function, and reliability. This is the stove for me.
