User Review: Snow Peak GigaPower Manual
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Retail
This is a great product, and is an essential item on all of my trips. The stove is sturdy yet lightweight and is bombproof.
- Sturdy pot supports
- Hot flame
The stove is easy to setup. All you do is twist the supports up. Although it is a manual stove, it is good enough to light with anything from matches to lighters or a fire steel.
The burner is very adjustable and has good simmering capabilities. The stove boils super fast and also simmers just as low as you want it to.
This stove is very stable. You could easily put large quantities of water on the stove. I do recommend using a flat surface as it will wobble while cooking. The stove packs down to about 3.5x1.5 x1.5in. The large flame adjuster works well and is capable of being adjusted with gloves.
This stove is bombproof. One time, I dropped it off of the deck (about 15 ft) and it still works.
I got this stove at my local outfitter, Little River Trading Company, at retail. I have had this stove for two years and it still works just like new.
