A great lightweight stove for summer use. Uses cheap Esbit fuel tablets or you can use trioxane fuel tablets. If it is windy you may need to make a windshield.

This little guy hasn't let me down yet. It is necessary to make a windshield in a steady wind. Other than that, this baby cant be beat for the money, ease of use, and weight.

I have used this a few times now up high in the mountains. I find that if you use a good windscreen and keep the burners in the lower position you can get very cold water to come to near boiling in about 15 min. I have found that the tablets will burn from anywhere to 14-18 min. I have been able to get water hot enough to cook dehydrated meals. Not bad for a cooking system that weighs about 5 oz, including fuel. I just used it at over 12,000 feet up high in Navajo basin here in Colorado. Worked like a charm.
