Firemaple reached out to me after I left a 3-star review and offered a full refund for my defective product. I asked instead for a replacement stove, and they were more than willing to send out another with expedited shipping. The second one works great, and FM's customer service is stellar to boot!
Great product from a respectable company.
It's certainly light, it holds a flame, and it seems durable, but everytime I unscrew it from a gas canister, gas spills out. Not just a little, either. Every stove will lose a tiny bit of gas when unscrewed, but this one loses a LOT, and it's in liquid form as it spills. Not sure if or how that could be fixed, and I'll still use the stove, but that's just a little annoying.
There is nothing not to love about this stove.
You know, this is great hooked to one of those little fuel containers. Fits right on and makes for a large surface area so you can get right into that camp food you brought. This makes for an easy way to heat soup at the site, no more melted pot handles in the fire pit. But still this is a convenience not a necessity you can still have a great time without this. But for those who do like this kind of stuff, this is a great option.
Nice titanium stove and very light for the cooking capacity. Also very simple in practice. The flame adjustment knob is streamlined and does not get caught on brush and grass. Alongside this the attachment point for the gas has an external and internal gasket do it bolsters the valve attachment and provides an extra seal for the gas canister.
My Soto wind-master , the epitome of a Reddit-approved item that is considered reliable enough for a serious backpacker item advertises the same feature, this stove merely offers it with no mention of it on the package. I really think that this is a great design that undersells what features it has.
The pack up is also simple. I tested the item out on the mini iclimb table at night in my yard and because of the simple valve with no wire loop and the loose hinged pot stand, I could easy fold it up and twist the gas line around the stove. Some designs are just to realistic in their design like this one is. Also when used , it blues a very nice rainbow color showing the fire maple logo. I had some questions about the item and customer service got back to me in an hour. The quick service alone makes this a good buy.
This stove is perfect. Light, easy to use and very fuel efficient.
