    Rated3out of5byfromThe good, the bad and the ugly.The good: This is a quality piece. The pump is not all plastic like some others and is less prone to malfunction. The pump is also angled to maximize the amount of usable fuel in the bottle and to make it easier when purging the line. The unit itself is solid. The bad: This stove can be difficult to light. You have to follow the directions on how to prime and light the stove and then practice using it to get comfortable. If it's windy it becomes even more difficult. Because of the pump design you have to use a Primus fuel bottle. The ugly: The REI product decription says it includes a "windscreen". Although a windscreen would be helpful this isn't true. It comes with a heat shield. A folded piece of flat cicular aluminum that's a little bit bigger than the base of the stove that you unfold and flatten. The box the product came in says it includes a stove multi-tool. I bought 2 of these. One I returned because it was missing the heat shield and multi-tool. The other is missing the multi-tool but I will probably keep it anyway because it's hard to find a stove of this quality and you can't beat the outlet price.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood, compact, white gas stoveI was looking for a smaller stove to fit in a complete nesting cookset and came across this one. I loved the idea that it was about the size of a canister stove, but with the power and flexibility of white gas. Being on closeout just made it easier to take the gamble, and I'm glad I did. The good: This stove is small, like fits in a bowl, no big fuel pipe or other protusion, small. That being said, it is perfectly stable when cooking. It can tilt a bit when nothing's on it, depending on how the fuel line is, but it's not a major issue. This is my first Primus stove, and I'm very impressed with the build quality. The stove is pretty simple, but there are some nice touches like a thumb screw for cleaning the jet, and the pump is excellent: a metal plunger and body, nice quick link for the fuel line, and an ergonomic tilt that scavenges fuel and also makes it easier to pump when the bottle is on its side. It's also designed for the bottle to be flipped when turning the stove off, so that all the fuel in the line is burnt off and doesn't leak in your pack when you disconnect. The heat output is good. I was able to boil a kettle of water in about 4 mins. The bad: This stove is hard to light. I say that as someone who has another white gas stove, and has spent many camping trips with other similar stoves. It's not a dealbreaker, but it is something to be mindful of. If you take your time, and care to learn, you can consistently light it with a good priming. But if you're impatient, you can easily have a nice fireball on your table. Another quirk of the stove is that it has a smaller flame spreader than most. How much this matters is directly related to your cookware. My good set, with a heatspreading bottom design, did not care, but other thinner pans did need to be moved around a bit to cook evenly. Lastly simmering is not great. The only control is on the bottle, so it's a little slow to respond, and you have to watch that you don't put the stove out, but I can cook eggs or other lighter ingredients without burning them, pretty easily. In short: this is a great stove. It's not perfect, and it's got some weaknesses and quirks, but I'm pleased as punch that I got it. If you're looking for a light weight, compact, white gas stove, you can't do much better.

    Rated2out of5byfromWanted it to work, but returned itI bake while camping with the Outback Oven and need a white gas stove with an adjustable flame. I really wanted this to work. I didn't want to return it. But I had read the critical comments in a few reviews about the seal not holding. I don't know if it was the seal that was the problem on my stove. I would pump it and bring it up to pressure, but when I would go to prime it no fuel would come out. Pressure wasn't the problem. Maybe the fuel line was clogged. But it was brand new, so I returned it. It wasn't worth the risk to me of an eighty some odd dollars stove not being able to prime. It eventually would, but it always took me about a five minute attempt. Just not worth the aggravation for a brand new stove to perform so poorly.
