Very happy with this stove

I've owned this stove for about a year or so and have not been disappointed. I only use it to boil water and never eat from it, in my mind to prolong the life of the stove. After about 25-30 days of rigorous use the starter still works flawlessly and there is no real signs of metal or plastic fatigue. The insulating outer wrap is genius. I can pick it up at a roaring boil and pour water for coffee/meals without burning my hands. The insulating outer wrap is the only piece on the stove which has become a bit ragged, but its easily replaced. It boils water so quick I can barely get my coffee organized in the morning before the water is done! Additionally, it's so small and light I take it on most long day hikes during the cool months of the year for a quick hit of coffee or soup.
