This Is One Remote Canister Stove To Consider Buying For Many Reasons

Pros

  • Boils water insanely fast
  • Good temperature control from simmer to full out inferno.

Cons

  • A little on the heavy side. Weighs in at 8.5 ounces (not including fuel can).

I did a boil test at 3,000 feet above sea level. I used an adapter for propane use (small, light and easy to install). For the pot I used the Optimus Terra Weekend HE (heat exchange system). The outside temp was 57 degrees with 10-19 mph wind gust.

Here are my timed results for boiling water to a  rolling boil at full blast heat:

  • 16oz water took 35 seconds!
  • 24oz came in at 1 minute and 1 second!

I could not believe my eyes.This stove is a beast.

Experience

Because of the cup design around the burner assembly this stove does very well in windy environments. The burner orifices are angled to create a vortex pattern which may help explain faster boiling time.

One of the main reasons I acquired this type of stove is for home emergency power outages and other situations. Having stocked up on 1lb propane canisters, I'm now set for now.
