I just bought this stove this year and have used it only a few times, mostly at home. So, far I am very pleased with it. My only complaint is it has taken me longer to get used to the flame control than I would have liked. But that is more my fault than the stove's. It's not the smallest or lightest, but it's way better than half of the big green box. For now I'll give it a seven.

Hard to imagine a smaller stove system! I like the fact that it simmers perfectly, a big improvement over my multifuel system which was great for boiling water but couldn't simmer worth a darn.

My sons and I have used my Yellowstone several times. It's is very simple and (thus far) reliable.


Pros: Wide, 4-arm supports handles large pots well (compared to some smaller, backpacking stoves)... inexpensive... wide flame pattern makes for even heat distribution (think frying fish or pancakes).


Cons: heavy (for a backpacking stove)... adjusting the flame to a low simmer can be tricky; the value wants to spring back to high when you adjust it to low.


Yes, I would recommend this stove to a friend, most likely as a great "starter" stove.

I have used this stove on 4 trips. So far it has been a great, reliable stove. I did purchase a wind shield to help contain the heat. If the wind is blowing, it is hard to keep the heat under the pot or pan. It packs down small and fits nicely in the pot I bring.

I've used this stove in and out of the BWCA. Its compact, easy to assemble/use, efficient, and you can't beat the price/value. It's done everything for me from making a cup of coffee to simmering a pot of chilli.
