Primus's Lite close coupled gas stove system is super efficient so you don't need to burn as much fuel to brew up - on longer trips this means you carry less gas and therefore less weight.
Primus says: Lite is the new entry level stove in the Primus Lite family, offering simplicity yet the same performance as the rest of the range.
The patent pending attachment of the pot to the stove and patent pending Laminar Flow Burner Technology provides a stable and efficient cooking experience whenever you need a stove at hand.
The pot in combination with the burner makes the stove one of the most efficient of its kind.
The stove and all accessories, including a 100g gas cartridge (notincluded), fits into the 500ml hard anodised aluminium pot. Lite has an insulating felt sleeve ensuring easy and safe handling.
Primus' Lite All-in-one Stove uses Primus's close coupled stove system to ensure heating of water and cooking uses the least fuel possible. This type of stove is ideal for fast and efficient boiling of water even in windy conditions but the rapid transfer of heat to the pot and its contents can cause challenges if you want to simmer food - you need to keep stirring it!
The pot cosy keeps the contents hot when removed from the heat but Primus recommend you don't leave it on when cooking - having said that every promo shot I've seen for this stove show it being used with the cosy in place - perhaps Primus are covering themselves. There's a fabric handle which is OK - but it feels a bit insecure when the pot is full but you can just grab the cosy anyway.
The whole system is easy to use and has impressive efficiency - this type of stove is heavier than others because of the heat exchanger, however it saves weight for trips longer than a few days because you don't need to carry as much fuel.
This Lite model is the basic one, there's the Lite+ which is the same stove unit with a few enhancements:
