Great stove! After I bought it I got a you should have bought a (blank) stove theyre better I wilderness camp and fish out of a boat so the larger MORE STABLE design and the 1.5 Ltr pot of the Helios works for me. Ive camped with a little stove owner and watched his dinner go to the ground because of the design. If you want a stove that doesnt take up a lot of room but works like a big one consider it. It does boil water in the specified time so its great when you cant wait for coffee in the AM. I used it for 4 days, pasta, soup, eggs, oatmeal the only thing that you need to do is pay attention to whats going on in the pot, it does produce heat fast.
