This was an absolutely great purchase! I use this little stove all the time. It's awesome for camping and is the perfect size for my bag when folded down. I love it!
It is extremely easy to feed the fire with it's open side, it's low and wide so it provides a very stable base and you could easily cook with a large cast iron skillet on it but it also handles small single serving size containers like cups or camp pots. It does require a little more in the way of sticks to burn over a cylinder designed stove but, you build up a larger bed of coals and if you're cooking for a prolonged period (such as for 3 or more people or you're actually cooking food plus boiling water for coffee, you may actually conserve fuel over time and cook faster because of it's size. Tonight was the first time I've used this stove and I was really impressed with it.
