It doesn't get much simpler than this. I bought this as part of the Primus Classic Trail Kit. The stove breaks down into two pieces; the valve and the burner. Simply screw them together and attach the fuel canister. Large diameter flame helps against hot spots and blow out. It's not lightweight (8 to 9 oz depending on whose website you go to), but it's bombproof. If you're counting ounces this isn't your stove. If you want an inexpensive, bombproof, and simple stove to use for years to come, this is one to consider. I've had some ultra-light stoves that are nice but very delicate. I tend to be a little rough on my equipment. It's not a good feeling when your ounce saving stove suddenly bends out of shape. No worries of that with this one. Great stove.
