Great for cooking actual food for more than one person. Everything fits inside the pot!
Unnecessary if cooking freeze-dried food; don't forget to take the bottom cover off or you'll melt it when you fire up your burner

This cookpot works great in snowshoe camp to get kids going out with a quick breakfast. easy to screen from wind. The difusers heat water quickly for dehydrated lunches. Clean-up is easier than stainless steel and the speed of cool down once empty get us back on the trail.
the plastic stabilizer base is fragile
I modified a short leg tripod with an aluminum base for leveling.

Group cooking size is great. Fuel economy is great. Orange color is great.
Heavy. Everything sticks to the pot. Piezo ignition is unreliable. Heavy.
I returned this and got the Primus ETAExpress (amazing!), after the first use. On the JB, the piezo failed at 10,000 feet and then my lighter ran out of fuel and we had to fuss with matches, then when we ran out of matches we had to borrow matches from another hiker. After dinner we all spent about 20 minutes scrubbing off the stuck-on food. Since specs weren't clear on how much fuel we'd need for a group of 3 for 2 nights, I carried up just as much fuel as I would with a regular stove. The irony was, we would have saved a lot of weight and fuss if I'd just stuck to my usual group cooking system, which is a normal folding stove, big Ti pot, and a regular size can of fuel.

cooks fast, easy to assemble, easy to light when pizeoigniter is working. adjustable flame makes cooking things besides boiled water possible. It is a relatively lightweight cooking system, though not the lightest.
the pizeoigniter on mine is flaky. sometimes i give up and use a lighter. other times it works great. I don't know why yet.

Review by dave fluke on Nov. 04, 2007
fast cooking due to flux ring-light weight-stores the stove and fuel inside making it save space-great flame control- no wind problems like a lot of stoves
cheap plastic on top and botom which will melt if pot is not completely full-pot stand is a little cheap and burner plate is unstable
any stove and MSR black lite cookware

all fits into the pot, can cook a lot and easy to scoop stuff out
not very efficient - takes a while to boil water
