It took me a few minutes to push it back into the grooves (its spring loaded) and fit it into the notches.
However once done I compared it directly to the Coleman Peak 1 stove.
Here is what I find....
Coleman has a smaller burner and a smaller burner grate overall than this Primus.
Coleman has an easier time reducing the flame to a very low output.
Primus has a larger burner and a larger support grate than the Peak-1
BOTH have a serious output of heat.
I think this Primus is better for larger pots and actually using a small frying pan.
Coleman Peak-1 is better for smaller pots and bowls because of the smaller surface support area and area of heat being more directed into a smaller area.
Neither are perfect , yet neither are bad at all. Both are quite solid.
I cannot make a choice between the two as they both are adequate for just about anything considered for a lightweight canoe/Kayak trip from overnight to months extended.
Boiled water in 2min 15 seconds for the Coleman Peak-1 , the Primus was 2 min 20 seconds.
The water boil test is rather inane and proves little for 99% of us.
I use my canister stoves with an adapter on the full size propane bottles for keeping expenses low.
Becauise Im in a Canoe or Kayak , weight isn't nearly as important for me , yet taken into consideration a little.
UPDATE...I eventually got frustrated with the adjustment to low flame/simmer being so finicky and asked for a refund.
Im still not taking away from the stove for what it is , but for me cooking eggs and Rice without scorching on a 8" pan are very important. Sticking with the Coleman Peak-1 or Chenbo Import stove (Very Similar to this one) for $12.99 as it has much better flame control than this Primus and has proven itself in the field. If I were just heating water for quick meals this wouldn't be an issue.
1) it is pretty heavy for a stove of this type, at 7.5oz it is almost a half pound. This is a result of the traditional super Primus structure, a brass valve and either chromed brass or heavy stainless for the upper part. This will last till your grandkids are old, if propane is still even available then.
2) It come in two parts, the burner top and the valve assembly. So they need to be screwed together before attaching to the fuel can and use. A bit of bother and potential to get dirt in the jet. But it makes it fold down small and goes in it's nice mesh bag.
3) When you unscrew from the fuel can you need to do so quickly as the fuel will shoot out a bit. The needle that allows the fuel to come on is a bit long so the stove assembly unscrews enough to lose the O-ring seal before the needle has let the fuel turn off. Again, not a big thing but an annoyance and something to be aware of.
4) The knob looks to be plastic but perhaps is actually bakalite or some other heat resistant product. There is no warning about not using with a wind screen but if it is plastic and used with a wind screen it could melt the knob. Unknown at this point.
UPDATE: After using this a while I've come to really like it for the broad burner and idle capability. HOWEVER... there is a small design flaw that makes the simmer/low burner a bit of a problem. The "volume" control shaft goes through a bushing that retains the shaft and keeps it from coming out. The shaft/bushing fit is very loose, so making any small adjustment makes the flame height jump around a lot. Just touching the knob wiggles the needle valve and flares the flame a lot so getting a low simmer is very hard to do. Just something to be aware of.
