Snow Peak Stove Review
Review Pros :
– Very good quality system – nicely made, good construction, good materials, no rough edges – feels substantial with one small exception which I will speak of in just a moment.
– Very compact design and it’s fairly lightweight for what this stove offers
– The way that it transforms is impressive – it’s rather sleek
– Can support pots and pans ranging from 4.5” to 12” in diameter.
– Overall performance of this stove is very good – there are faster stoves out on the market but most will be larger than this
– Ignitor works very well
– Butane fuel at least here in the States is very inexpensive
– Once you have the stove set up, it offers a very stable platform to cook on.
– Inserting the fuel canister is very fast and simple – there is no locking lever which some may want.
– Stove has an interesting feature that I haven’t seen before – it has a copper heat conduit that warms the fuel canister which helps when using this stove in colder conditions. This is important as butane doesn’t perform the best when it is cold.
– The flames originate from inside of the burner ring which does help with wind resistant but in windy conditions, some sort of shielding will be needed.
Review Cons :
– Pricey – if a compact design isn’t important to you, then there are less expensive stoves out on the market
– Unfolding the stove isn’t as fluid and easy as one would expect. I’ve set this up and broke it down hundreds of times and it’s still not a smooth process – the locking pin on the bottom isn’t super easy to push nor is it to locate.
– No case is included.
With the adjuster, the stove turns off at 1 instead of 0 – the first couple of times that you use this stove you might want to simmer, you make the adjustment and you turn the stove off instead
– While I like the build quality and the materials, there is one slight issue that I want to mention – with the fuel door cover, if you close it too strongly you can overshoot the locking point – it’s a bit flimsy in that regard.
– The pot support legs are too far apart to be used with small cups or pots. – Anything with a diameter less than 4.5” and you will have some difficulty using it with this stove
– No English instructions are included
