    • Snow Peak GigaPower stove comes in a plastic box for easy packing; size specifications are based on storage box
    • Fuel canister sold separately
    • Weight includes stove, not the canister

    Snow Peak GigaPower Stove with Piezo

    Snow Peak GigaPower Stove with Piezo is rated 4.76 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Pot Supports In A Compact Stove This stove really does it all. Tons of heat output, extremely compact size, and very well built. The pot supports fold out to be quite large, capable of supporting everything from one mug to a full size pot you might use on your range at home. Great heat control, too, I am able to get a consistent simmer easily. No problems lighting with the piezo igniter. I can't imagine doing better for all purpose use, the stove excels at everything from making a mug of tea at the summit to cooking for groups on extended trips. The only flaw with the stove is its poor wind resistance. You can get a Snow Peak wind shield, which mostly solves the problem and helps keep the heat on your pot even in zero wind, but it is quite large. It will fit conveniently under a 220g fuel canister, which is great, but if you're trying to pack small you pretty much can't take the wind shield. Without it more than a mild wind will significantly increase your boil times. The price you pay here is not so bad, honestly, but if you are likely to be out in nastier conditions definitely get the shield. Without it, the stove packs extremely small - for quick trips I just put it in my Snow Peak 600 mug with a fuel canister, which gives the capability of many "compact" all-in-one water boiling stoves in a much shorter package. All that said, if you don't need a general purpose stove and just need to boil water, e.g. you're never going to put a pan on this thing and try and make anything more complicated than pasta, you may want to look elsewhere. Highly wind resistant stoves like the MSR Reactor are much faster in inclement weather and more compact than bringing this stove and a cookware set. If you're a comfort hiker like myself who likes to keep efficient but isn't going out if it's below 30 or likely to be rainy and windy, you would be hard pressed to do better than the Snow Peak GigaPower.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nine years later - THE Long term review It's funny how time flies. I was in the market for a MSR Dragon Fly in 2004 and hey wait, it's now 2013! So yes, I was looking to buy a Dragon Fly from his British Bloke moving back to London and he was selling all his backpacking gear. He had it all, the Dragon Fly, sleeping pads and bags, an ultralight tarp, and even a slew of canister stoves. The tiniest one, immediately, drew my attention. My introduction to the GigaPower GS-100A Self-Igniting Butane Canister stove by Snow Peak. Through out the years, this has been one of my standard stoves when camping, backpacking, and hiking. I'll use it for my REI non-stick frying pan to make delicious eggs overeasy, perfect Omelettes that Gordon Ramsay would squeal in delight because "it wasn't entirely rubbish", even hot corned beef hash with country fried potatoes in a skillet. Just make sure you turn it down a little when you make french fries or donuts. Don't want anything to get burnt~! This stove is one hot son of a gun. Outputting 10,000 BTUs of goodness, this actually beats out my home range by a full 2,500 BTUs. It's impressive to me (please don't steal my thunder). The wind screen, while difficult to pack, is essential in the operation of this stove. It'll concentrate the flame and make sure the bottom of the pot, or pan, that you use stays completely hot. I found that it was slow to boil any sort of water without any wind screen. Obviously a windscreen around the entire unit would be great, but it runs the risk of overheating your fuel canister to the point of explosion, so don't do that! If you have are fortunate enough to have a Remote Canister Adapter for this stove, use as many windscreens as you'd like. I have a Primus ETA pot to go along with this for fuel efficiency heaven. If you turn the stove on and then turn it down to about half, you'll match the output of a Jetboil and get very similar boil times. Just make sure you fashion some sort of neoprene cozy around the pot too! The plastic case is nice as a protective cover, but you need to keep in mind you need to open the valve ever-so-slightly to get the stove to fit into the box. I've forgotten enough times and gotten a blast of odorant straight to the sinuses. It wasn't pleasant, but I wasn't in any real danger since there were not any open flames around. However, this might not always be the case. The stove also takes its time in colder temps, so make sure you have something to keep that tank warm when cooking like stuffing it down your pants or submerged into a pot of 60 degree water. Other than that the past 9 years have been a blast. This stove still looks new and works great, I look forward to the next 9!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove in a great package. This stove is ultralight without sacrificing functionality for the last half ounce of weight like the absolute-very-ultra-lightest stoves you can get (like the Primus Express Stove Ti). The four-part pot stand (vs 3) makes for very stable cooking (as stable as whatever you can find for the canister, anyway). Flame control goes from better-than-high on the range in my kitchen to a high simmer (you can go very low, but the stove gets prone to winking out). I think my favorite feature of the stove is the piezo ignitor. Usually I expect to have to have the gas flow very low to ignite with a tiny little piezo, but in this case the stove reliably lit on the first click with the gas low, and had little trouble lighting even with the valve wide open. If you're looking for a complete backpacking solution, the GSI Halulite Minimalist Cookset makes a great companion - fuel, stove, potholder, and spork all fold up nicely into the footprint of the pot. The SnowPeak is probably a slightly tighter fit than the MSR options, but it's still no trouble to get it all in there. For cheaper and smaller volume than a jetboil, I'm really pleased with this combo. the ONLY problem I have is that the plastic case seems like a bit of an afterthought. The shaft of the valve handle always seems to get hung up on the way in or out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Fuel Efficient This stove is well worth the price. It performs well in most temperatures, (down to about 10f) and is very fuel efficient. I can boil 16oz of water in about 5min and use only 11g of fuel. The electronic ignition can be sketchy at times, but over all it is really nice to have. The four points of contact make this the most stable backpacking burner I have ever seen. The only real "problem" is the plastic case thet the burner is stored in. The case is really designed to fit the stove without the igniter, so the one with it is a tight fit. I wouldn't really call this a deal breaker, just an oversight by Snow Peak. Some people say this stove is hard to adjust...whatever! Is has plenty of adjustment, everything from full on boil to bare simmer. This is the burner to get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little stove This stove is fantanstic. Light weight and sturdy and works as it has been advertised. Eventhough my first stove lacked the holding container, REI let me return it for a new no problem. Great customer service. I used the stove in the cities in the park, in my backyard and in the woods and it works great. Like many canister stoves it had a bit of difficulty in the cold of a Minnesota winter. I need to get a wind screen for it, but the windscreen from snow peak is stainless steel. I'll look for some ideas.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect little stove I found this stove to be quite perfect. I purchased the small wind screen at the store, and when together, they work perfectly- no issues, boils, simmers, etc. No frills, just a compact basic stove. I like I can use my own cookware on it, and I love how small and light it folds up. My one issue isn't even an issue yet. The self ignitor still works great for me, but I know two other people with this stove, and theirs has already bent and no longer works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple = Perfect It works and is small! Better yet, it fits in the snow peak 700mL mug with a small fuel can too! Buy it, cant go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, lightweight, easy to use Bought this stove for our last camping trip, and couldn't be happier with it. It's light weight, portability and ease of use make this a great stove for the money.
