This system can be used with esbit, alcohol or canister as a fuel source. I purchased it for the convince use with a fuel canister. Bad winter weather or traveling with a partner, its nice just to flip a switch. I was surprised how efficient it was in the long term.
My stove system was used on a ten day walk across Olympic National Park this last summer. We had two hot meals a day and still had plenty of fuel left at the end of the trip.
