    Bring the whole kitchen.

    If you've got a hungry party of dirt-clad travelers on your hands, consider feeding them with Primus' Essential Stove Set. Utilizing an integrated burner/wind guard combination, the Stove Set cooks up grub and brew quicker than most traditional camp stoves, so you won't be waiting 'till mid-morning to drink your coffee. Plus the lid doubles as a frying pan, so whatever you do, don't forget the bacon. And when it's time to pack up shop and hit the trail, the set (including wind-guard stove, 2 pans, tongs & lid) pack into a single rattle-free unit that's easier to pack than many multi-piece stove sets, so go ahead, bring the whole kitchen, because it honestly won't take up that much space.

    Nice stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    At 64 I'm no longer the backpacker I once was so I decided to replace my liquid fuel MSR with a canister fuel stove. I originally purchased the Primus 2.3L but it was bigger than I wanted so returned it for the Primus 1.3L. I have only used it on one backpacking trip and then just to heat water for food pouches and coffee. Works fine and seems like a quality product. Has a nice wide stable base. Quickly sets up and packs away.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've got plenty of experience with camping and backpacking stoves, ranging from DIY beer can alcohol stoves up to Coleman Duel Fuel Powerhouse classic camp stove.

    What's great

    The Essential Stove is suitable for backpacking or regular camping, and it includes the essentials: 2 pot, a pan, a pot holder, and the burner. Everything nests together in a nice little package.

    The stove is plenty powerful and was able to get our coffee percolator boiling in only a couple minutes.

    The details are nice: they put rubber/silicone feet on the bottom and on the pot holder, just adding a bit of finish to a functional set

    What's not great

    The way the hose folds into the stove when stored is a little awkward at first. After using it a few times, it's more natural and not a big deal, but this could be improved.

    With great power comes great responsibility…it doesn't have a great "Low". In order to prevent our coffee from boiled out of the percolator, I tried to turn it down, but accidentally turned it off. There isn't a great simmer option…the low is not very low.

    Overall, it is a nice kit and I will be lending it to some friends to an upcoming backpacking trip.
