User Review: Snow Peak GigaPower Auto
Source: bought it new
Great, reliable stove for a very reasonable price!
- Works with all screw-in fuel canisters
This is a great stove that I have had for a year now and used constantly. It is very light and easy to pack and the set up is as simple as unfolding it and screwing it into the fuel canister. The ignition is a simple auto click that has worked very well for me so far.
The flame control is excellent for fast boiling to low simmering and various other cooking settings. Boils water within a few minutes when in sheltered conditions. The wind does effect this stove so I would greatly recommend getting some kind of windscreen for it. If you are just boiling water for dinner like I do then the a single fuel can can last anywhere from a week to two weeks. So far as long as the ground is level the stove has had great stability.
The only thing that went wrong for me with this stove was that it froze up and wouldn't work on a winter camping trip, although the temp was around -10 degrees at the time. That was the only downside I have had with this stove and apart from that am very happy with it.
