Excellent Stove
We've been using this stove for a couple of years now and its be brilliant. Despite sitting on top of the gas canister it is very stable, with easy adjustment of the flame even with a pan on top. The pan supports fold in and the whole piece packs away nicely in the little bag.

The boiling time quoted by Coleman is pretty accurate, with the thin lightweight pans we use it's probably even quicker.

The only problem we have with this stove is that it is quite fragile. Too much heavy handed use and it'll be in pieces on the tent floor...

Great little stove
I, too, have been using this little stove for a couple of years now and have no complaints. For what it is, it works extremely well. The burner head is really too small to cook with, but boy will this thing have your water boiling soon. Stability hasn't been a problem and neither has durability. I'm not exactly easy on my equipment and, unlike norm79 above, have had mine in pieces yet.
