Have used this stove for a couple of over-nights in warm weather. Worked well with no hitches. The quality could be felt in the materials, probably except for the auto start ceramic holder, time will tell how it would hold. No problem with simmering. Seems to use all the contents of MSR and other brands canister. Easy set up. Highly recommend it!

great little stove
I really like this little and superb light stove. I used it during my last trip in Iceland and it worked really well, even in stormy conditions. The stove works with all different cartridges -thats an extra bonus if you travel to different countries.

Great Little Stove
I used this stove on my entire 2168 mile Appalachian Trail thru-hike. I started in late Feb. and it was really cold. I had no problems getting the stove to cook my meals even on the coldest of nights. Maybe only once did I have to warm the canister before use.I would give it a 5 star rating but it does have a few issues. Being that it's a taller unit, you have to make sure it's on a flat surface, since balance can be an issue. Wind can rob heat from it so cook in a sheltered area away from the wind. Don't do what the other guy did, NO windscreens on canister stoves!Overall it's a great stove, simple to use, light, and maintenance free. Its small enough to fit inside your pot too. The best part is you can use almost every type of fuel canister out there, a big plus when the outfitter one carries one brand fuel.

good piece of gear
Good stove, compact works with numerous propane/butane cartridges. Not the best choice for high altitude and/or extreme cold applications. I would recommend to anyone desiring this type of stove.
