I though you might like to know of our experience with the stove on our first use. We just returned from the Sipsey Wilderness in northwest Alabama. Temperature was in the low 40’s each morning with highs in the high 50’s. Wind was mild. The stove performed beyond our expectations. Lighting was easy. The boil time was as stated 5-6 minutes for 2-1/2 to 3 cups. I must admit you were right about the flame. Its HOT and hard to see. However, the windscreen made it easier to control. One minor mishap. We used a rock that wasn’t as stable as it looked and had a spill. Most of the fuel remained in the stove and did not ignite and the water spilled harmlessly on the ground. The only thing red was my face.
Overall, a splendid example of simplicity and usefullness. We cannot wait to try it again. Good job and a fine product.
