Primus' Eta Express Gas Stove System is a super efficient cooking system which uses a close fitting windshield and pot mounted heat exchanger to achieve rapid boil times and save fuel.
Express Stove Set with its new pot has an effective windscreen that simply clicks onto the stove using powerful magnets. It comes with a 1-litre PrimeTech pot with a heat exchanger and integrated handle. The lid of the pot is made from transparent BPA-free plastic with an integrated colander and grip-friendly silicone. The stove, the included BPA-free plastic bowl and a 100-gram gas cartridge can be packed.
Primus' Eta Spider Stove system comes as an extremely neat package with everything packing together, including one of the small 101ml gas cartridges. It will even take one of the larger 230ml cartridges although then you can't fit your stove inside.
The heat exchanger pot and windshield provide an extremely efficient combination that will save lots of fuel on longer trips thus offsetting some of the extra weight of this set. Its supposed to be suitable for two at a push but we think the 1.0L pot is a bit small for that, unless you are simply boiling water to add to food, and there's only one bowl anyway.
All the components of this set are well made and well designed and the Spider stove itself has a piezo igniter.
