Have used it several times since with out any real issues. Tanks freeze up sometimes but I don't think that's a stove issue, get the same thing with 20 pound propane tanks on the grill at home.
The valve is not very adjustable and will not simmer but great for getting water hot quickly. The wire handle does not fold away when valve closed completely, have to open almost 1/2 turn to fold it away.
Overall a great stove. Certainly recommend it. Folds down small, fits into the bottom of canister, kind-of wind resistant, heats up quickly, good price. Other scout dads in the troop have purchased it after hands on comparison with many other stoves including the Primus and Pocket-rocket.
SO - SO : Optimus makes the Weekend Terra as their smallest 1-person cook set (the HE version is the same with heat fins on the pot), but many stoves that don't fold down also fit with a fuel can in this system, so the foldability is novel, but not totally necessary. Also, the flame adjustment knob isn't fully closed when you fold the green handle in- you have to open it half a turn.
NO LOVE: The adjustment is very touchy. Twist the knob a full turn before gas starts to flow. If you light it at this low end flow the flame will go out in 7-10 seconds as the flow reduces over time. Nudge the green wire gate up or down (no twisting) and the flame adjustment changes - too sensitive to movement. Continue opening the flame adjustment and you're quickly at medium and then high over another three-quarters of a turn. Twist back down to low, and then 15 seconds later the flame dies out - so very hard to simmer, also difficult for heat adjustment for "cooking". No piezo ignitor built in (but that's ok).

Disappointed in this stove. The ability to control the flame for simmer is for some reason very poor. Either the stove is all on, or all off, and there is not much in-between. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Harlow Pinson

I have several stoves and thought I'd try the crux.
Noticing the larger burner and pot support that will be useful for smaller pots/cups, had to try it. Read more
