compared this with the jetboil, and went with the primus because I liked the fry-pan lid, and for the included windscreen. Boiled 1 cup of cold water in the morning (reached 36 at night) in a few seconds. I lit the stove on low, put the pot with water on it and turned it to high, and instantly saw little bubbles forming on the bottom of the pot! was at a raging boil 15 or 20 seconds later. I had cooked chili the night before, tried cooking the chilie in the can it came in at first, not wanting to use the included pot which I would have to clean later. It was difficult trying to warm the chili in the can without burning it, so I gave in after remember the pot was non-stick, and poured the chili in and finished warming it that way-- worked great and sped up the process unbelievably. Easy to clean, the titanium non-stick is better than my non-stick fry pan at home!
The stove is great on its own. fully adjustable flame, on high its kind of intimidating. The true genius is the complete system, the coiled metal heat dispersment system on the pot bottom combined with the burner is the best system there is.
