✏️ Plus Bonus Top 5 Beau Thoughts:
1⃣ Super easy startup. (see video)
2⃣ Fit my Jetboil canisters perfectly.
3⃣ Very lightweight; perfect if you're into ultra-light backpacking.
4⃣ Comes in a small canister to protect it.
5⃣ I'm very surprised at the price. At REI this would cost 2-3 times more.
Hope this is helpful! Note the company sent me this product to demonstrate on video and offer my personal opinion. I don't work for them, nor am I paid anything that might sway my personal opinion of this product's performance.
📍 Bottom line: would I recommend this product to one of my friends?
👍 Yes, absolutely.
If you need something for a "back-up" in an emergency kit, this is the stove for you.
If you have a Boy Scout in the house, this is a great gift.
I have used a number of stoves during my adventures. My favorite is the Optimus Crux Stove. NOT the lite, but the old model Crux. It folds down, and mounts with the included bag to the underside of your fuel can. BUT it's usually around $40. I was shopping amazon, and stumbled on this stove and figured what the heck. It will be a back-up piece or a loaner.
Talk about being surprised.
First off let me say that when I go backpacking or camping, i do more than boil water and cook freeze dried ready made meals. I LOVE to cook. I usually surprise the people I am with when on the second or third night I back pizzas on the trail. Or when they wake up in the morning to the smell of bacon and eggs frying away on my backpacking stove. I've also recently made sausage gravy and biscuits on the trail, and the crew went bananas. (I dehydrated the sausage before leaving the house). BUT let me say that if this stove was more than $20.00, it would not receive 5 stars. Let me tell you why.
My favorite stoves have a larger diameter burner. I like to "bake" on the trail, and prefer to not have a "hot spot" in the middle of my cook kits. This stove concentrates its flame in the middle. My Optimus Crux fans out a little. BUT I carry the lid from a #10 fruit cocktail can that works very well as a diffuser. Don't use a coffee can lid, they are too thin.
BUT this thing can put out some heat. I set up a test, 2 cups of water in a pot. Turned both stoves on high, and let it rip. Used the same pot with the water at the same starting temperature, and guess what. This little stove only took 35 seconds longer to get the water to a ROLLING boil. My tablet stove never got above a simmer and steam.
The fins which hold the pot above the burner, make sure you FOLD THE TOP OUT before placing your pot on top. Don't try to cook with the fins folded in like the picture for the product.
The igniter for this thing is such a very nice addition. It works, and saves time and energy by giving you the means to light or relight your stove when needed. It's handy and just plain works.
The body of the stove itself is pretty durable and still hasn't rusted after being here in humid Hawaii for the past 2 months. My other stove started to show some corrosion on the fins a month after we got to the island.
The valve is fully adjustable. You can turn it way down to a low simmer, and it HOLDS there, or crank it up and boil away.
The orange case is cheap. I mean CHEAP, but really all it's doing is holding everything together so you can wrap it in a strip of sham-wow before stowing it in you pot with fuel.
One thing I have learned about iso fuel stoves, is that some sort of canister stand is a MUST. A good stand makes all the difference. I recommend MSR's stand because it's metal and VERY light and durable.
Speaking of fuel, this stove is very fuel efficient. I had Coleman iso fuel stove that seemed to get three meals per large can of fuel. This one last about 6-8 meals per SMALL can of fuel. Also by using a wind screen (for me it's a custom folded piece of heavy duty aluminium foil) you will find that all backpacking stoves work even better than advertised.
Bottom line, this stove will NOT disappoint. As with all lightweight stoves, be careful about dropping or bending the "fins" that support your cookware. Store them properly on the trail making sure they are padded and kept clean.
Have fun experimenting with this stove in the back yard before taking out on the trail. You won't be disappointed!
ADDITION: I just got this back after loaning it out to someone for their weekend. The cooked a LOT of scrambled eggs, and at one point they spilled eggs onto the burner. OOPS... Guess what. This unit comes COMPLETELY APART. I was able to take it all apart, soak the burner in some soapy water, then picked it clean with a safety pin. After that I thoroughly rinsed and dried, and it works very well.
My baseline for reference (and I suspect yours too) is the ubiquitous MSR pocket rocket which I have used for years with good success. For reference, see the pix comparing both.
For the etekcity, I really like how all of the feet slide out of the way. You do have to be sure to positively lock them in place and flip out the feet but it's a nice feature.
Wasn't sold on the ignition. Like the concept but between the way it is attached and the bulk it adds I'd just as soon skip it. But I won't lie, it was nice not to have to use a match for once.
On the flame itself, the Pocket Rocket burns much cleaner and hotter. But, that's not to say this guy does a bad job. As other reviewers have noticed, the flame is pretty concentrated b/c of this unit's smaller diffuser so it will leave a scorch mark.
On the other hand, for $10 (vs the MSR's $35-65 depending on model and price) this is a freakin' steal. Quite frankly if I get one trip out of it (14 days) I will consider it one of the best things Ive ever bought. Not to mention that it packs away in a case about 1/2 the size of the PR.
Last but not least it seemed that the metal was more "bendable" in this unit then in the MSR. At first I thought that was a negative (from a durability standpoint) but quickly realized that I actually like this feature as it allows me to do some minor tweaking to the feet to allow the pot to sit rock solid on it. All in all I thought the pot sat better on this 4 prong unit then on the 3 prong PR.
So far, happy.
However, I was intrigued by the potential of this stove, and decided to see if I could improve on the support issue. My solution was to fabricate a kind of trivet made from (4) 1" sections of a metal tent peg and some 1/8" dia. wire as shown. It fits down over the stove legs when cooking, and stores inside my cook pot. Now my teapot and cook pot are supported on a stable base with no tendency to slide off as before. This particular fix is probably beyond the capabilities of many viewers, but there may be other, easier, ways to achieve this result that would be well worth exploring. The stove boiled 2 cups of water in my teapot in 2-1/2 minutes outdoors in below freezing temperature! I'm looking forward to using this on motorcycle camping adventures next summer.
