Christmas gift from my girlfriend. Took a break from remodeling the bathroom to give it a test drive and brew myself some tea. I think we can all agree that a Trangia, even one made last week and delivered by that river in South America, is indeed a classic. Fueled with: Upon first ignition: Pan immediately in place, both to reflect heat back to the burner and to start heating water immediately. I would be waiting on me XGK to prime at this point: Boil achieved. I didn't keep track of how long it took, but it wasn't out of line at all and I didn't even use the frying pan as a lid. I love how quiet the stove is: Burner at WOT after removing pan: Nothing left on the pan after boiling: Very pleased, I think this is going to be come a new favorite. No fuss, no bother, just quiet easy competence. Now I need to take it out in the field and give it a real test. Off to source more alcohol and maybe a Trangia fuel bottle.
