Just unpacked 4 of these. All usable, couple used, on damage. Just remember to stock up on fuel pellets. Great stove for hot drink etc., don't think your going to fry "taters" with this stove. Not going to fry a chicken in your lifetime. Not what is meant to be used for, boil water, Warm MRE, etc.. LIGHT weight heat source, (with fuel pellets) outstanding addition to "bug out bag"/emergency winter kit in vehicle" Way better than But* wipe, coffee can & rubbing alcohol.
