The Primus Eta Express Stove is a compact backpacking stove ready to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner out in the backcountry. The Eta Express is light in weight, 449 grams, to you won't be weighed down. The lower center of gravity of the stove combined with the magnetic windscreen make it easier to cook meals, especially in windy weather. The boil time is two and a half minutes. The included plastic bowl fits inside the pot, along with a 100g fuel canister (not included), and the stove. The windscreen fits along side the outside of the pot, while the handles fold down and the colander lid fits on top, all to be tucked inside the mesh stuff sack. All your cooking gear in one spot, ready to be pulled out when the stomach starts to rumble with hunger.

Does the ignition work on anybody else's burner?The piezo electric ignition failed after the first use. Maybe I'm an idiot, or maybe the spark is just too weak. I'll challenge you to find a YouTube review where they're NOT using a secondary lighter to light the burner, no ice bucket required. Once you get it running though, it's VERY efficient with cook times.,,The mesh carry sack is just that, no other functionality, I guess an interchangeable wash bowl is asking too much. ,,,,Re-reading that, my review sounds negative as all get out. To be honest, I am very content with the system. Worth the purchase even with the very minor qwerks. And not the urban dictionary definition of qwerk.

So when it's raining, windy, dark and cold and your hungry.....So I got this because I like to go back country camping and inadvertently it rains or snows or is just plain bad weather at least once during the week and it makes it hard to cook and keep the flame going and so on. so I bought this because of the wind screen it offered as well as the light weight nature. All I can say is that is has been a life saver that has taken down the stress level of trying to cook a warm meal in the wild a bit, while it is stormy.

Easy to use and works with virtually any pot.It may not sound like a plus, but the windscreen attaches magnetically. It fits and holds great, but also allows for any size/shape pot. The pot it comes with, works fine. It's wide, allowing it to heat faster.

Will the wind screen fit other stoves? Such as a Pocket Rocket?
Asked by: feralcarole
The windscreen for this stove is not designed to fit other stoves so it most likely will not fit anything but the Eta Express. It measures 4" x 6" at it's widest point across.
