Go forth, cook, eat and be merry
Set it up, prime it and cook. Cook fast, simmer, eat, relax, reheat, whatever. This stove is awesome and super flexible. MSR makes some amazing gear, and while this won't do canisters like their new gear, for folks who already have a canister stove and are looking for a first multi-fuel option, this is it. Though I recommend you go with white gas. Kerosene is dirty and will pollute your system pretty quick. But, if you're finding yourself in a foreign country, the option is there. And that is a life saver.
