Recently
I was giving a Backcountry cooking demonstration at Sierra Trading Post and got to use this in an indoor environment for about 4 hours.

I was impressed with the cooking/ boiling water times. Things I might change is the rubber lid. Other competitive systems have a metal lid that seconds as a fry pan. Again, the only real complaint that I personally had.

Good System, I would recommend it.
