I have used my stove several timrs now and its Titanium so what can I say. Great little stove. Fits in the Frost 0.8L aluminum lunchbox with room for more. Its a full cooking/drinking unit in my small hiking shoulder bag. Highly recommend buying both the stove and lunchbox as a set.
Wind screens are not removable, does not allow storage of fuel tablets while stowed, cannot be used with twigs since wind screen completly blocks access to the burn chamber. too narrow to be used with alcohol stoves. Titanium is nice but they made the design more complex than needed which only limits its use cases. Id take this with me for a picnic where id bring a book and a lunch box, maybe brew a coffee while out on a summer day, specific use cases where it doesnt matter if i expense packing design for comfort; for this i give it 2/5 stars. its not all bad, just would definatly never bring it with me backpacking, camping, hiking, xc skiing, snowshoeing. Oddly maybe mountaineering. Its not thought out well for tight packing but when it comes to ultrapercise packing, it makes sence to only bring 1 tablet with 1 lightweight stove for mountaineering with no backups; the wind screen will resist failing from windy conditions. On mountains there may not be twigs available on a snowy peak and butane bottles may freeze so this could be a vaild consideration but all other cases i'd never bother pulling this out of the closet when there is far more versitile gear to compete with.

My favorite stove by far. Solid fuel, Alcohol, Insence charcoal, and yes, twigs if need be. So we'll made, quick deploy, bullet proof.
Have 2 already, just ordered a third.
The stove is compact and words well with various solid fuels. It is lightweight and perfect for ultra-light hikers. The built wind-screens do their job, but I wish they were removable so the inside of the stove could be used to store a few cubes of fuel.
This is a well-made solid fuel stove. The integral wind screens are a big enhancement to this classic design and gives a few extra pot support points. Very light as well.
