Ultralight backpacking camp stove, weighs only 3.9oz packed in the case! this is a Great stove. You get a ultralight canister stove, with piezo ignition, that folds into its protective case, and weighs only 3.9oz. This stove is built very well! quality construction and materials are at work in this stove. I guarantee you will be happy! these stoves wok with any screw top butane/propane canisters, available just about anywhere, MSR, Coleman, camping gas, etc. This stove will also simmer. It has a fully adjustable flame! this really is an impressive stove. When I got these in I was expecting something much cheaper, I Am totally impressed with this little guy. These would make Great primary stoves, back up stoves, emergency, spares, boy Scout troops etc endless possibilities! does not include gas base.

Just used this on a recent camping trip, worth the money if you are looking for a very compact hiking stove. Boils water in about a minute at sea level.
(EDIT).....I wanted to update this review to reflect how I feel about this stove now. Initially I wasnt pleased with how the unit functioned but since I have purchased this unit I have fallen in love with it. It isnt very often when you buy a cheaper product that you really find quality this high. It is very small, light and powerful. By far the most important piece of hiking equipment I own.
I want to thank the vendor also for the attention to those minor issues I had before, but like I said I have grown to love this stove!
It fits in the palm of your hand.
It is self igniting.
I have used it only for Iso Butane canisters but I have heard it MIGHT be used for other fuels... haven't tried that one... no need to really.
I got this product and a solid fuel burner as a back up for backpacking. I have NEVER needed the solid fuel. This stove has never let me down. I have used it in 30* and I have used it in 80*. I have had it for about 2 or 3 months now and have used it dozens of times cooking.
In fact, I just got one for my mother for camping.
It's a whole lot smaller than I expected it to be, so much so that I was afraid it wouldn't be suitable for the Stanley cook pot that I use (http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-Camp-24oz-Cook-Set/dp/B00H3377W6), but on level ground in my barn, the pot sat snugly on the supports and didn't wiggle while boiling. The piezo lighter attached sparked the butane on the first try. Piezo's usually don't get good reviews, so it was nice to see this worked well initially, but only time will tell how long it keeps working. Wouldn't be an issue to spark this with a lighter, match or something else, though. It boiled 12oz of water in a little over five minutes, which isn't as fast as the Coleman Peak backpacking stove I bought this to replace (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BHA9CG?keywords=coleman%20backpacking%20stove&qid=1452266396&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3), but considering how much smaller the burner is and that the quality of construction seems better, I can live with that.
This thing is all metal, except for the gaskets (obviously), which is a big upside. As much as I love that Coleman stove, I've had problems with the plastic casing cracking after many years of use. Since this is all metal, I expect it to hold up a little better.
Mostly, it's the size that makes this a winner in my book. This thing is the length of my palm (see pictures) and it'll pack away nicely in the pot, which is something the Coleman was too big to do. Like I said, we'll have to see how it performs on the trail, but I expect it to do well and be a great addition to my gear. For the price I paid (just the stove and container) I'd recommend it so far, even if you tuck it away as a backup and never use it.
For the record, I bought this of my own accord and received no compensation for this review. Happy camping!
One positive to come from this purchase is that I have re-purposed the plastic case to hold my "strike anywhere" matches. Just slap a little duct tape on the bottom and place a strip of striker material under the lid. That orange plastic box is the reason this review was bumped up to two stars.
To summarize, I have heard great things about this product through online reviews and I thought the piezo ignition system would be very useful. Sadly, the product did not deliver, be it through a quality control issue or otherwise. If you want to roll the dice, I say go for it. The worst case is that you'll be out <$10 and have a nice plastic box to show for it. The best case is that you get a budget camping stove for a good price.
