This is the most efficient stove on the planet, period. On a month-long 250 mile hike along the Colorado Trail this past summer it used only 2 1/2 of the canisters. Don't plan on simmering anything though. This is a water boiler, plain and simple. Prepare your meals so that all you have to do is pour boiling water over them and let them soak. Almost all of the packaged and freeze-dried meals available use this technique and with only a little bit of planning and creativity, grocery store components can be cooked this way as well. I gave it four, rather than five stars because it lacks a couple of features I've come to expect: It doesn't have a piezo click-starter. I'm ambivalent about these because every one I've ever had on a backpacking stove has broken within a few days. I always have with me multiple ways to light a stove and on my Jet-Boils I don't even bother to try the piezo. The pot does not mechanically attach to the stove burner. I wish it did because in cold weather I often hold the canister in my warm hands to keep the pressure up.
