5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Lightweight, October 14, 2011
Rarely am I impressed with a product. This stove is made as a real appliance instead of some cheap junk. It has an aluminum body with steel and stainless steel parts. The pot grate is porcelainized steel and it does get red hot while operating. The burner appears to be cast brass or bronze. The knob and feet are thick plastic. The drip tray comes apart for cleaning easily and assembles just as easily. The plastic case isn't much to speak of but it will protect it during transport.

It is a high power burner with an impressively even flame. Another Japanese stove I have also has a very even burner. The piezoelectric ignighter trips when the knob is turned to high and is very smooth. It has a heat sink that heats the underside of the canister. This allows for the higher output as well as a longer more steady run time. This is a product designed to function as a burner as opposed to a burner developed to be cheaply produced. The magnetic canister attachment is surprisingly strong and holds the canister well enough to depress the valve. It works, I hope it lasts well.

The only negative I have about the stove is that the nameplate rating is 14,000 btu/hr and the packaging is listed at 15,000 btu/hr. I suppose the designers round down and the marketing people round up. By comparison the large burner on an electric range (2,600W) puts out approximately 8,800 btu/hr and a small burner (1,300W) puts out approximately 4,400 btu/hr. Most residential gas stoves put out between 7,000 and 9,500 btu/hr per burner.

The last paragraph you wrote has been extremely helpful to me in deciding on a stove. I use a 10.25" Lodge cast iron pan to cook steaks. I tried using electric hot plates but even the expensive ones turn off when they get to a certain temperature, ruining the cooking process. This may be the heat source I am looking for to cook outside. Thanks much!
