Screw on the Amicus stove to any gas canister. Extend the pot support arms. Turn on the gas slowly. Press the ignitor button. That's all it takes!

The gas/fuel and stove can fit inside the pot if you have the smaller 110g size canisters. If not it still fits fine in the provided mesh storage bag on top of the pot.

POT

The 1000ml size is great for one person.

Thanks for this review. I have an older Soto camping stove and love it and I am happy to see that they have fixed one of the issues with the older stove, wobble of the stove arms. That click system looks nice but wonder how it holds up to constant use. Always looking for a new light weight option on the cooking can. This looks nice. Again- perfect review and answered my questions in my quest to lighten my backpacking load.
