Product Reviews

How'd they manage to mess up this poor stove so badly?
If I'm reading the specs correctly, this stove weighs 3.5 POUNDS. It's a descendant of the classic Optimus 8R and 99 models, and my old 99 weighs 1.5 pounds with half a tank of gas!

I see that they've made a pump integral to fuel tank, where it was originally a separate optional accessory (and not really needed, in my experience..I never bought one as the stove is designed to self-pressurize).

Gone is the top cover that made a pan, along with the pot handle and windscreen. Instead, the case (presumably now steel) appears to be a clamshell design with a fixed hinge and only serves to weigh the thing down while providing no additional functionality.

I just had to remark on what appears to be a spectacular example of ruining a classic design for no discernable reason. Review by bob

What's your definition of "white gas" as per your specification?

Can one use petrol as a fuel for this burner?
