19 years now and only problem was when the o rings failed (after 15 years) and the jet clogged once. I had it repaired on a trip within 10 miuntes. Learn to field strip before you use. Be sure primer cup can be removed w/o a tool (hand tighten. I carry spare rings now and soon fuel line just in case because I go solo and or in 20 miles. 12000 ft no problem, 22-26 degrees no problem. Never tried other fuels but have read vodka can be used. If 100 proof ?? Always use the heat deflector not shown for safety. A metal base option (3oz) is great for uneven surfaces. Daily use - I figure on 2-3 oz's fuel per day with breakfast 10 minutes and dinner 25. Adjustable flame can simmer real low. Primes nicely. Avoid cheap fuel. I use Coleman for best results.
This stove has been around for years i.e. time tested in the most extreme and unforgiving conditions. Needless to say, this stove is still around and is still the best.
Pros: *Weight: everything included (empty fuel bottle) it come to a little over 1lb. *Size: very compact, the stove and fuel pump will easily fit inside a set of camping pots for example. I would say that if you keep the stove, heat shield, and pump in the stuff sack it will still fit in a camping pot thats about 6 inches in diameter by 6 inches deep. Otherwise, if you split the parts up, the stove is super small, essentially no bigger than a 1&1/2 tennis ball's. *Reliability: This is a time tested workhorse. I have had this thing wet, muddy, frozen, hot (all conditions) and it will start every time. (when it was muddy i did have to clean it a bit, but then it worked like new). This stove will boil water when and where you need it. * Simmering: Despite what others have said, i have...
I got my stove today and couldn't be happier with it. There was no flare up or leakage to speak of and simmering is easy as pie. Just turn off the stove, depressurize the bottle, pump three times and relight. To keep it going just give it a pump every four minutes or so. My one complaint is the fuel that leaks out when you disconnect the fuel line or depressurize the bottle. I wish it had come with a pressure release valve.
