User Review: Snow Peak GigaPower Auto
Price Paid: $49
This is a great little stove: solid quality, 4 cooking dish rests (as opposed to 3 on the MSR compacts), folds up nicely into a small container; comes with a nice sturdy container, and has auto-ignite (as opposed to the lightweight, compact MSR).
This stove puts out a very nice flame and, with the bigger stand, I can cook with a larger bowl, meaning more surface area to heat quicker. Check out some of the Snow Peak titanium bowl kits. There is one with 2 bowls and a small frying pan. With this kit, and this stove you can boil water so fast, I think it's faster than jetboil. It blew me away the first time I boiled water. And with this larger bowl, you can get the large 8oz fuel cans and fit them in nicely.
The only beef with the stove is that it's tough to adjust low flame. The cock/valve has some springiness at low-end that wants to turn off when down that low. But it's manageable. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for that slight issue.
