User Review: Soto Micro Regulator Stove
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $60
One of the lightest, yet easy to use. Piezo ignitor lights every time.
- Built-in ignitor
I was looking for a small packable stove for getting lost on the weekends.
At the time, small and light was in my head, and this stove is one of the smallest and lightest.
On top of that, it has a handy piezo ignitor built in, and it works every time. (although you would be better off to have a back-up lighter).
The major gripe about this stove is that it absolutely needs to be on a flat, stable surface. Without much area to set the pot on, any imbalance will meet disaster. Also, the common problem with these types of stoves: windproofness. You can't put a screen around it for safety reasons.
