    Hi All,

    I just acquired a Soto STG-10 stove. This stove is compact and powerful. Specs are:

    Size 153×195×77mm
    Weight 380g
    Calorific value 2.1kw (1,800kcal/h)
    Operating time 2.1h

    This stove is pretty easy to put together. The directions are in Japanese but fortunately there is pictorial instructions to follow. The stove cools down pretty quick. Once back in it's case it can be placed in your pants pocket or any where in your day pack or backpack or you can keep this in your car for emergencies.
    I decided to make some coffee with this stove and used my 8 cup stainless steel percolator coffee pot. The stove is designed for smaller pots, but I figured it would work out great and it did. When it started to percolate I turned the flame down to a simmer and let it percolate.

    This stove is well made and very easy to use. As can be seen in the pictures the stove is made to run on the vapor side of the fuel canister. I did try a fuel canister that was almost empty and the flame is the same so whether the fuel canister is full or nearly empty you will have very good flame performance from this stove
    Just thought someone out there would like to see this stove up and running.
    By the way the coffee was great, and I know some would probably think the coffee looks like swill but it was very good.

    Cheers,
    Norman

    Hi Sparky,

    You can find these stoves on the bay of evil or I suppose you might be able to find where they are sold in Japan and maybe save some money getting one directly the manufacturer.

    Cheers,
