Keep 'er folded
The output of this baby is like an old man after a big spicy mexican meal. Like DR said, it simmers pretty good. The auto ignition works in controlled conditions. It didn't function very well in damp conditions as expected, so keep the cover folded when the rain starts falling. I give it four stars because it fits nicely in my side PackRat compartment and boiled a big giant pot of fresh sweet corn no problem.
