Does the Amicus stove in this current Drop come with the igniter? It says so in the description but doesn't seem to show it in the illustration.

One of the best features of the Soto stoves - great igniters.

Thanks mate. The main photo above doesn't appear to show it but one of the auxiliary pictures does. I'm presuming it's the red button. Either way the Amicus in this drop includes the igniter.

The Soto Amicus Canister Stove...much overlooked by the outdoor community, in favor of the much over hyped MSR Pocket Rocket 2! I own and use this "Hikin Jim" reviewed and approved canister stove, and it works great! Check out his head to head review here... https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-msr-pocket-rocket-2-vs-soto-amicus.html The Soto Amicus is the little brother to the great and legendary, albeit higher priced Soto Windmaster, and is made using the very high standards associated with Japanese manufacturing. Think Japanese technology and standards used by Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, versus the Korean technology, Kia, Hyundai, Daewoo, used by MSR. Japanese quality excellent, Korean quality good to very good! The Soto Amicus boils water fast, has a built in wind screen, a sturdy four legged pot stand, a reliable piezo electric stealth igniter, and brass, rather than aluminum fittings and valves. The $40.00 price tag is a good deal, $35 would be a great deal, especially with the pot included, with the only con being the $7.75 shipping costs! I paid $ 50.00 delivered a few years ago from Campsaver, but I purchased the two pot cook set, and the stove, and use the second pot as a lid when boiling water. REI is currently offering the two pot cook set that I have for $44.95, but you need $50.00 for free shipping. https://www.rei.com/product/149091/soto-amicus-stove-cookset-combo All in all, both are good deals, and you may like the single pot with the clear lid better, but sometimes having a second smaller pot comes in handy for drinking, or mixing something while the first pot is in use. I report...You decide.

Switched to this stove from a Snowpeak gigapower w/windscreen plate and am now using 50% less fuel, saving weight and getting to a boil faster. This stove is great! I have the cookset too, but I am still using my titanium so I have not tried it.

Does this drop include the fuel canister? It's not listed in the overview and I assumed it's just for illustration purpose only.

Obviously not. Shipping explosive gas by mail is heavily regulated and in most countries illegal especially by flight.

I switched to this set after using Jetboils for several years. Fantastic stove. The flame control has a wide range. On full blast, the flame is much higher and intense than the Jetboil. The flame goes all the way down to a low simmer. The pot supports are sprung , and they lock in place (there's a small hole in each leg that fits into a stud built onto the burner.)

Purchased this from REI for a lower price (Massdrop's S&H too often kills the "discount" and returns to REI are not only possible but really easy). Used it for the first time last weekend in Death Valley NP and it was fantastic. Only once did the igniter fail on the first try (lit on the very next try), and performed really well in windy conditions (windy enough that my buddy's jetboil blew out). I'm impressed.

Received the drop last night. Stove and pot are well made and I look forward to a field test. Test boil of 750ml of water in a little under 4 minutes with a chilled canister. It is not as quiet as a my whisperlite, but it is a fraction of the weight.

I wish it came with a smaller pot. Great deal for Canadians! Stove is impossible to find here.

I agree about pot size, 650 or 750 would be more ideal, I feel weird drinking coffee from a liter pot. I'm buying it for the stove and considering the pot as a bonus.

REI has it with a 500ml pot, which acts as a lid for the 1000ml pot. Both pots and the stove are $45.

Anyone know what the simmer control is like with the stove?? Or is it full blast immediately?

I took mine out yesterday (~ 55* at the time and wind 7-10mph) and the simmer control was excellent - surprisingly, really. I had it up about halfway blast to get the first pot boiling (made cappuccino in my snow peak 700) and then while still going, cooked my noodles in the 1L pot (purchased for the same price from REI and got it in within a week). I have no complaints after the first use but I will be testing again Friday in similar conditions (and will try it this time with no windbreak, which is why I picked it up in the first place - with my BRS knockoff, and with 2 windbreaks, it wouldn't stay lit. YMMV.) Only difference is in the pots sent with the stove.

i agree about the bsr. I take it as a backup now that fires are basically banned on the Oregon section of the PCT. I’m not a fan of the cold soak, and I don’t trust the bsr’s reliability.

Nice, but I got the same setup from REI for $34.95 a couple weeks ago.

Not knowing that MassDrop had this "deal" going on right now, I was at REI yesterday, with a $20 coupon in my hand, prepared to buy the Soto Amicus Cookset you mention. Pretty good set up, and with my out of pocket cost coming at $24 plus tax, it was intriguing. BUT, I already own the non-piezo Amicus (great stove, but having a piezo would be nice), and the Snow Peak Mini Solo cookset. Ended up getting $20 worth of odds and ends that I can always use backpacking... not the Amicus cookset. Ultimately, the REI option is a better value, but has some issues (for me):
  • No volume markings on either pot
  • A good amount heavier than my Mini Solo (pots compared to each other)
  • No lid to let things like oatmeal steep in the smaller pot - like the Mini Solo has.
But, if anyone is interested in the Amicus w/piezo, and could use a decent cookset, REI's option is the way to go... especially if you are a member (and get a dividend on the purchase, or a 20% coupon).
