Review by danmerrick on Oct. 28, 2009
I still have and still use the little SVEA 123 stove I got in 1972. The one shown is the same stove but the name has changed. Perfect for an overnight trip with one or two people in cold weather (cannister stoves don't work in cold weather). I love how it sounds like a buzz bomb.

Note: I don't know if the new ones are equal in quality.
It can be tricky to prime. Carry an eyedropper and draw a little fuel from the tank. The cup is pretty useless except to cover the top when not in use.

Have had this about 30 years and still performs as new. Boils water at any altitude or temperature.
Heavy and sometimes difficult to prime. Noisy
