Great stove! Much better than the over hyped MSR Pocket Rocket 2. Built in windscreen design, four legged pot stand, instead of three for the MSR, brass fittings instead of aluminum, a piezo-electric starter that works every time, pretty fast boiling time, and really efficient simmering. I picked up the Soto AMicus with the piezoelectric istealth igniter, and the cooking pot set for the same price a couple of years ago. I'm American, but I have to admit that Japanese technology is good...think Acura, Infinity, and Lexus! I'm happy.

2 questions. Free shipping included or how much? If I order with igniter, can it easily be removed AND re-attached?
Apr 15, 2019
I disagree...get the stove with the stealth igniter...it works great and no need for a lighter.

Shipping is not free. To see how much, click "Buy". It doesn't obligate you to buy. It does allow to to see what the shipping would be should you buy. I don't have an Amicus but I do have a Micro Regulator and a couple Windmasters. On those, the ignitors work well enough that I wouldn't want to remove them. But since they sell replacement ignitors for my Sotos, they can be removed. I wouldn't think the Amicus would be that much different.

This deal is ok, but for $10 more you can get a set at REI with the Amicus w/ igniter and two nice anodized aluminum pots (1L and 0.5L). And you get about $5 back on the dividend, so it's only like $5 more to get two nice pots and reliable customer service...

I would say that if wind is your only consideration, then get the Windmaster. However, the Amicus is basically just about the same in the wind, and it has several other features, and functions not found on the Windmaster. You did not ask, but I believe that both the Windmaster, and the Amicus are better than the MSR Pocket Rocket 2. Check out some comparisons by long time camping stove reviewer, tester, and user Hiking Jim! https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-msr-pocket-rocket-2-vs-soto-amicus.html

https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/search?q=windmaster By the way, the Windmaster is much more expensive than the Amicus. My choice is the Amicus. https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/

I hate those igniters so much, can't say how many times I've shocked myself with them
Feb 15, 2019
Yes...wickedly powerful electric current! I hear some states use those piezoelectric ingiters to power the electric chairs used for capital punishment!

I have used an Amicus for more than a year now, mostly in the Canadian Rockies. It’s good in windy conditions but surely not a Windburner replacement. At 75g, it’s light and compact and I don’t bring my 15g BRS3000T anymore because. The construction of the Amicus is awesome and it’s quite compact (way more than my original PocketRocket). I also like the stability of the legs, which was an issue with the BRS. I am happy with this purchase. I use the one without the igniter. Check on Campsaver, it’s on sale quite often.

I own both the windmaster and the amicus. The wind protection comes from 1) the design of the burner and 2) the shape of the ring below the burner. Both stoves far outperform any MSR or Snowpeak stove I have ever owned including the Litemax in boil times and fuel efficiency especially in the face of wind. You will still need to find or build or carry a aluminum foil windbreak especially to light the stove. There are some excellent performance tests published by Hikin Jim at https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com. Buy this stove. You will be happy.

The Windmaster is manufactured out of "titanium" and with its triplex pot holder is 2.3oz according to SOTO. The Amicus is manufactured out of aluminum and weighs 2.9oz. The Amicus packs up smaller and is easier to deploy the potholders since they are attached. With the Windmaster the pot holders are detached. The fourplex has four supports under the pot and is more stable with a heavier pot. I have used the Amicus with pots up to 1 liter and 1.3 liters with no problem. I think the Windmaster had slightly faster boil times than the Amicus when I did my backyard testing. But both the Windmaster and the Amicus beat the SnowPeak Giga and the SnowPeak LiteMax. Cheers

Agreed. I've used the windmaster at altitude (4000-5000m), and it beat every other stove there in terms of boil time.

Is the igniter something that would work better in the wind as opposed to match, lighter, etc.?

The igniter will be better in the wind than most matches and lighters, but it's not perfect. It usually takes me a few clicks to get it going.

Sometimes. Still need a concentration of gas for the piezo to work best and in a decent breeze that can be blown away. A lighter gives bigger and more spark...piezo is convenient but they are ALL unreliable so you'll want a lighter or other sparker as a backup anyway, may as well forego the piezo on a stove and save a couple bucks, imho. Plus piezo starts to be very hit and miss above 8,000' if you do much hiking at elevation (at 10,000' you're lucky when it works).
