Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springer Mountain to Katahdin without a hitch I used the original stove and had NO issues. It weighed about 3.6 oz. When it gets cold, ALL stoves require more fuel. My Snow Peak GigaPower has been through mud, freezing ice and rain, and brutal heat. The 4 prongs were a big selling point, as my pot was very stable. My buddy for sure. I still have it! I decided for my second Thru, I would get a new 2.0. I weighed it and without the metal tag and box which I don't need, it comes in at 3.05 oz. I have put the new 2.0 through it's paces, just to make sure there were no issues with quality. The new stove 2.0 has been through mud, snow and ice, just like the first hike, and like Eveready, it keeps on going. This is my favorite stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performer with Excellent Cookware Supports The design of this stove is excellent. I decided to try the Snowpeak Gigapower because I liked having four supports that are flat to hold the pots. My cookware feels very stable on this stove. For the number and size of the supports, this stove quickly folds into a small package that easily fits in many pots and dishes to save space in the pack. The auto lighter has worked each time with a single click. For a canister stove this seems to have a reasonably dispersed flame to heat more evenly. The available windscreen is a nice option to have, not only protecting from wind but also reflecting more heat towards the cooking surface to reduce burn times and thereby save fuel. The flame does change quickly from low to full with a small turn of the lever, but I have no issues with being able to make sensitive adjustments for more precise cooking. Overall, this stove is a fantastic performer in most any measurement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Igniter failed on first trip I appreciate how light and compact this stove is as well as how quickly it boils water and it's simmering abilities. The part that concerns me is the igniter failed on my first time using it, and as I'm traveling overseas I can't deal with getting it fixed for a few months. I checked the snow Peak website and thier replacement igniters are on backorder, Which may indicate this is a defect in the design. TAKE A BACKUP LIGHTER OR MATCHES with you if you have this stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for lightweight hiking /backpacking I bought this product recently and used it for the first time on a 32 mile backpacking section hike of the Georgia AT (3.25 days) July 4th weekend. I wanted a stove that was lightweight. Although I knew when buying there were other stoves that were lighter (Pocket Rocket 2; Snow Peak LiteMax) I still went with this one for the following reasons: It's lightweight maybe not the lightest but the difference of 1 oz or less was not an issue for me considering the positives; it has 4 prongs as oppose to 3 for more stability, meaning I felt more comfortable that my small pot would not fall over; and lastly the built-in Piezo was nice to have and I didn't have to worry about matches (although I packed some as back-ups) or bic lighters. Boil times were fast considering I was only boiling water for myself. During my trip it worked flawlessly; easy to assemble , disassemble , and use. I had it on the minimum setting as the flames come out pretty intense. Overall , happy with this product and would most definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super hot, easy handle You'll need some pliers to turn this off, and to hold the pot if it has a small handle. The stove gets very hot quick at an altitude of 5000 ft. It was easy to turn on with the included ignition button. To control the flame turn very slowly. It packs very small. It was straight forward to attach and detach from the canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Powerful. Compact, comes with aplastic carrying case. Easy set up. Turn the dial, push the starter and voila. Boiled a pot of water quickly. A bit much spray from the fuel When connecting, but that could be the fuel canister. Make sure everything is level when in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent ultralight stove Thiis stove is amazing and its tiny. I had mine for about 10 years and igniter still works fine. I have been carrying matches but never had to use them. This miniscule stove has drowbacks due its size. The drawbacks are it's not very stable and very sensitive to the wind. I did buy a wind guard for mine which helps a lot. For one person ultra light setup is great but for 2 or more look at something bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, High-Performance, Good Simmer Fantastic camp stove. Electric ignition means no fussing with matches or lighters; sensitive control allows for low simmer + low fuel usage - you won't waste propane. So light, so tiny, so god.

Questions & Answers

What is the weight of this stove?

Asked by: erika
Snow Peak's website lists the weight of the stove at 3.75 oz., and the small stainless steel windscreen at 2.0 oz. (Total combined weight is 5.75 oz.) I used the burner (without screen) last fall in Colorado, and it worked flawlessly. At high altitude, it may not catch at first, but simply blow on the unit as you open the valve and it will catch. (It requires the additional oxygen from blowing in order to catch at 10-11,000 feet and higher.)

Is the windscreen that comes w/ this stove the same as the windscreen that is sold separately for all other GP stoves?

Asked by: wbsherman
This item does not come with a windscreen. The windscreen can be bought separately and is the same as the previous windscreen made for the Gigapower stove. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention, we are working to update the information as soon as possible. Here is a link to the windscreen: https://www.rei.com/product/668815/snow-peak-giga-power-windscreen​

How does this stove perform at higher elevations...Cold -33?

Asked by: Ghosttooth
This stove is not ideal for the conditions that you described. In cold weather, the canister can depressurize and produce a weak flame. A liquid fuel stove performs better in these conditions.

Will this stove fit jetboil fuel canisters, or do you have to use gigapower canisters?

Asked by: Rico
It will fit any fuel canister with a Lindal Valve. I use it with the MSR canisters and have no issue at all.

Could you use a fry pan on this? What would be the largest recommend size pan, 8”, 10”?

Asked by: Sriha
This stove is best for a small pot, but if you wish to us a frypan, 6" in diameter is probably the largest you can effectively cook with.

One of the best features of the regular GP is how well it holds a simmer - with triple the BTU's as the standard, is does the valve open slower to manage the heat for lower cook temps?

Asked by: wbsherman
​Unfortunately that information is not available.
