I used this to cook for a high school group of about 25 camping for about a week. Between this stove and my dutch ovens they were very well fed. I did not have time to try it out ahead of time and the kids set it up for me, so that may have something to do with it being hard to light. Mostly I just used matches instead of the 'Matchless Ignition." I haven't given up on it and will try and work with it when I clean it up for storage. Other than that, it was a dream. Grill heats very evenly and the burners boil large pots of water quickly - even at altitude. I'm considering adding the char broiler for next year.
Great temperature control, Stable, Powerful Cons:
Bulky, Difficult to Light
