User Review: Primus OmniFuel
Price Paid: na
Just as the ads say this stove burns everything and burns it well. The adjustment is smooth allowing for a nicely controlled flame temperature. I compared this to several other stoves during my last trip to Alaska and found that not only was this the easiest stove to start, my fuel consumption was worth bragging about. Pot stability was unquestionable but overall base ice stability requires an additional surface. The other problem is the weight, mmm. I think Primus could do well (specially at the price of this item) to switch to a titanium/HT aluminum including the shaker and get this stove down in weight such that it is practically the only stove you would ever need.
Uses: Alpine, backcountry, overseas, hurricane recovery, heck even for a romantic nigh at the New.
Pros: burns almost everything or at least everything Primus lists (plus a few others), controllable, good burn, reliable.
Cons: could pack smaller, could weigh a lot less, could cost a lot less, a piezo option would be nice for the less than zero environments.
