I want to clear up some confusion with prior posts. There appears to be 2 different versions of the etaExpress. They are basically the same stove but on one version the windscreen hooks onto the stoves pot holders. This is a taller stove and you have to use a narrow pot when using the windscreen.
The second version (IMHO the better version), the windscreen connects to the lip of the fuel cannister. This creates a lower profile and allows for the use of ANY pot.
I used 1 cannister of fuel for several demonstrations, several solo overnight hikes, and a 4 day trip (2 people) in Mammoth. Most of our meals were the dehydrated type but we also fried fish on a couple of occassions. This thing does not use a lot of fuel.
The manufacturers website said that this stove is not recommended for very cold temperatures at high elevations. However, on one of my trips I was at 11,500ft in elevation and the temperature was about 32 degrees. The stove seemed to work just as well there but it did take an extra minute or so to get water to boil. But that is expected with high elevation.
On the trip to mammoth, the elevation was 9400ft and the temp was below freezing. Still no problem at all.
EVERYONE who has seen this stove in action wants to get one for themselves.
NOTE: This stove uses what is called a Lindel valve. Although I cannot find the Primus brand fuel in my local stores, other brand cannisters work just as well (Snow Peak, Jet Boil, MSR, etc..) as long as it uses the Lindel Valve.
Due to the wind, we wasted a lot of fuel. I had taken two 110g fuel canisters, and we ran out of both canisters on Sunday morning at breakfast. It should be noted that we aren't your typical water-boiling-instant-ramen backpackers. We made 2 cooked items per meal and actually cooked and simmered lots of items (boil-in-bag rice, hard boiled eggs, etc.), made a pot or 2 of coffee after each meal, plus boiled a few pots of water for other campers. Next time we'll take 230g canisters just to be sure, but with proper wind screen installation and wind protection, the 230g canisters should last a few weekend trips!
One thing that should be noted too, is that things cool very quickly due to the great heat conduction of the aluminum pot, but also, the heat sinks that dramatically increases cooking efficiency also dramatically increases cooling efficiency. I presume this applies to all cooking systems such as Jetboil, MSR Reactor, and EtaPower. You want to get stuff into insulated containers as soon as possible. But also remember you will burn yourself if your insulated container is extremely efficient, like the Thermos-style insulated vacuum bottles.

Fairly compact if you use the 110 gram canisters. Very effective, a little bit on the heavy side but worth the weight.Published 4 months ago by Jonas Ljungqvist
