It’s a stove, pot stand, windscreen, cook pot and insulted drinking cup in one integrated unit. Think of this integrated cooking system as a Jetboil with anorexia. You get much of the function of the Jetboil for 20% of the weight and 15% of the cost. Possibly the coolest and most inexpensive gizmo of the show. Every backpacker should have one.
The Ultralight “Beercan” Cook Pot & Stove (ULBCPS) uses Esbit fuel tabs. One tab boils 20 oz of water and weighs ½ oz. The whole system weighs 3.8 oz, less than many canister stoves alone.
