User Review: Snow Peak GigaPower BF
Price Paid: $79.95
Snow Peak is my new favorite company for stoves, and the Gigapower BF was the stove that did it for me. It is a little more clunky than some of the smaller canister top stoves, but I like that it has a broader base. I hate having to balance a pot on top of a canister while trying to stir -- my soup always ends up on the ground. The BF lets me screw into a canister and then autostart the flame. I don't have to prime anything, which is especially nice in the rain and there's no fiddling with lighters. The stove is also able to simmer and very simple to replace in its case- which fits neatly into my MSR Blacklite set. I also really like that the burner is big enough not to scorch the middle of the pot and leave the rest lukewarm. I'd recommend this stove to anyone that doesn't mind a little more weight for a lot more features.
