    Light and works well
    The igniter is working well. I had a little more problem to light the stove on higher elevations (5900m and up), but I don't think I can blame the igniter for that.
    The flame is well spread in an even way.
    When a stove is this small and light, some things have to be down-prioritized, in this case the pot holders/legs are a bit too small and you have watch the stability. A smart canister holder with three adjustable legs gives the canister itself good stability. It's adjustable to fit any canister type. Even though the stove is very light, it feels like a safe construction. I have tried some other models of the same type and some of them I have felt; they may be too light. It felt like they could break apart at any time. This one is sturdy and strong.
