This stove is not reliable. It will break after 3 - 4 uses. My wife is on an 8-week research trip in the Mojave desert with this stove. The pump fell apart after 3 uses leaving her unable to cook food. I drove 1100 miles to bring a replacement stove to her, and the next AM we started to cook some eggs and the new stove failed. The hose that delivers the fuel was somehow plunged. I was using new fuel and brand new fuel cans. DO NOT buy this stove. It will fail. Look at MSR stoves or Coleman. Any equipment failure is bad in the field but a stove is needed to boil drinking water.Cons: Cost, Bad design, Low performance, Poor quality
