This was my very first stove. Like the above poster, I got it at Wal-Mart for $20. When I first got it, I was pretty impressed. It is relatively fuel-efficient, has good simmer control, and burns hot. Also, I like how the three pot supports are so stable.
To reduce weight, I took the extraneous plastic off, and it’s 0.5 oz. lighter.
The only disadvantage to this stove is the stove’s weight. At 6 oz. after reduction, it’s twice as heavy as the average canister stove. Despite this bomb’s weight, I am not getting rid of mine. It is tough and reliable.
If you are on a tight budget, and don’t mind an extra 3oz. for $20 less than an MSR Pocket Rocket, this stove is great.
