Nice little unit to keep you going

Weighing around 16 oz with a 100g fuel canister, the Sol Ti is not only one of the lightest backpacking stoves out there, but a very efficient and high performing unit. The stove boils water in no time, and assembling & packing everything back into the titanium cup is a breeze (the stabilizing tripod in the bottom, then the burner upside down, then the 100g fuel canister, and also the pot support if you wish, which I don't use). One could easily cook ramen noodles in the cup too, but I wouldn't cook anything more "viscous" because with it since it isn't exactly a le creuset...heats up too fast and hot; even at its lowest level, one could easily burn the food (not to say it can't be done, if you do, good for you~!). I personally use it solely to boil water with it because it's not exactly easy to wash the cup out in the wilderness and don't want to attract any animals to my tent since I don't hang it with my bear bag.
