You just click it together, put some flammable stuff inside, strike a spark and boom, you got a small, economical and relatively (!) safe fire, that can be moved anywhere and also works as a stand for your pot.
All it takes is one or two arm-length twigs. You casually snap these off a tree on the trail, tuck them in your backpack's side pocket, and in the evening, it will comfortably boil a liter of water for you and still leave some wood for laters. (Mileage may vary with different types of wood.)
I usually find myself not bothering with fuel at all, however. I just lie down next to the stove and pick whatever small sticks are lying around. When it's about to burn out, I just lazily reach for a few more twigs or cones and that's it. Crazy :).
I also like to use this stove as a small bonfire, casually roasting sausages or small skewers of bacon, onion, cheese, whatever really...
On the off chance that there's no natural fuel around (or in extremely wet conditions), I can use some Esbit that I always carry with me as a precaution. Simply pop the small metal plate in its place near the top of the stove and you're ready to cook. This is great for a quick cuppa when you plan to pack up and hit the trail asap.
To sum up, here are some pros and cons:
+ Small. Super thin when packed, weighs nothing. (I regularly find I've been carrying it in my EDC backpack for weeks simply because I forgot to take it out after the hike and never noticed.)
+ Efficient. A few sticks and twigs is all you need.
+ Universal. Runs on wood, but works with Esbit as well as Trangia.
+ No fuss. Assembling and disassembling is a breeze. Easier and safer than making a regular fire.
- Requires near constant attention. Since the Fireant is really small, the fire inside it can naturally only be so big and will flame out after a while. This is somewhat alleviated by the bottom feeding mechanism, where you can feed it with longer/thicker sticks, slowly tucking them further inside as they burn off. But it still requires some baby sitting. It's almost like a little toy, a fire tamagotchi... Which is fun, but probably not for everyone.
- Can't be used on all surfaces. Although it's very undemanding and mobile, you'll still need to choose carefully where you put it. The base gets very hot eventually and will char most surfaces beneath it. Also, after some time, small embers will inevitably start falling out the small vent holes at the bottom. All in all, you don't want to use this on your shiny kitchen table. Nor on a bed of dry grass. A rock or a small patch of dirt is all you need though.
- Not bomb proof. While the whole product is very well made, the titanium sheets are still just that - sheets. They can bend in your backpack if you pack them in a silly way. When assembled, the thing will hold even a large dutch oven, but you don't want to step on it or drop your bag at it. Luckily, most damage should be a undoable by bending the sheets back to their original shape.
