  1. :

    They send out a fine big blue flame! I noticed a few things though…Spitting and sputtering: Yes, it did it to me as well. But it was on a new tank and on mating. As you screw them down it will spit a bit until the gasket mates so be aware of that. Also, on a brand new tank when I first opened the needle valve it did spit and sputter a few times. It went away as the gas level in the new can went down.Needle valve: The first time you turn it, it may be a little stuck so dont hold that little wire clip at the end. You will indeed bend it so hold it close to the valve the first time you operate it. Also, you do not need to swing that valve all the way open. Slightly open on a new tank make for a pretty substantial flame as you will see if you get one.Piezo starter: Does it look like its bent? Maybe…kinda…I have OCD so if its not perfect…Anyway, you may need to click it a couple of times for it to catch but it does spark and will start it. One thing that I am not sure of is the tip of that Piezo spark starter pretty much stays in the flame and stays very red. I know its not hot enough to melt it but still.Heat retention: After use, don’t think you are going to immediately take this off and go on your merry path. This is going to be HOT! so sit, enjoy your food and wait for it to cool off before you attempt to un-screw it and put it back in its little container. The hand you save may be your own!Pros: Size. When you look at the size of the storage box you will be surprised. I know I was. Performance. Not bad at all. Ok, I’m not a big bad AT hiker but they worked and worked well. Price wise, you cant beat these things. Two of them for less then 20 bucks? Yes please and will probably get another pair.

    I have opened and tested these two. They light but flame is somewhat uneven in flow. Most discouraged about the poorly manufactured legs/feet. They were not level at all. Had to tweak to make workable. Hoping the hold up for at least a few trips at this price. Not my first etekcity item made poorly. Should have seconded guessed my purchase.It is very small and it is light. We’ll keep for backups.Edit : seller asked for some pictures but the amazon email wanted to shrink the too much for me. Provided here. This is after some tweaking to try and level out.It’s probably difficult to see in these pictures but the four legs do not offer a level surface on which to place a pan. I have already tried to level the most bent one on each of the two stoves. If I were to show it from initial purchase there was at least one that had a final resting position that was higher than the others and one that was lower. This created a uneven surface on an already narrow support base.Hope that explains the problem for you. I would say the support arm construction is where the flaw is. If the stop for the hand were more precise when it flips outward it would work.

    After a few years of putting up with a traditional gas camping stove, I discovered the joys of having a propane stove instead. While my camping days are behind me, weather days are another story. If you’ve lost power for several days you know what I mean. Generators are fine, but I would much rather use that power for needs other than cooking. This is a simple and reliable alternative, most importantly providing an easy means for boiling water, something necessary for making soup, coffee, oatmeal, killing any nasties in the water, basic washing, or whatever. Even if one of these should fail, there is the second one. What is especially nice is the compact size. They come in vinyl boxes small enough to fit in a pants pocket, an easy addition to a power outage emergency kit. As for propane tanks, it’s much easier to keep that kind of reserve than gasoline for a generator. Besides which I always have propane canisters on hand in my workshop. This kind of thing should be added to the list of what is recommended for dealing with an extended power outage.
