    Captain, while those figures may be much more useful in real life (once you're past a certain point of boiling time) they're not the most useful here as they'll need explanation whereas boil times need a much smaller one.

    I'll include the BPL figures for the ones that I've covered that were on test (jetboil and pocket rocket I think).

    Cheers

    My Jetboil took 2:35 for 0.5 litre & 4:45 for 1.0 litre

    Just as an aside, its pretty clear from all this that there are lots of variations in how long it takes to boil water-what you'd call boiling, ambient, type of gas, windshield, type of pot, size of pot, use of a lid, how old the stove is, manufacturing variations etc etc.

    If you want to nail this course work and you can't get all the stoves you want to test then you should put all this stuff in your discussion and state the apart from a general guide the results you have gained aren't really very reliable.

    Cheers Wallace, I'll be including that in my summary of the comparison.

    Bam, you've just given me an idea, Cheers Wallace!

    Cheers for Mike.

    > they're not the most useful here as they'll need explanation whereas boil times need a much smaller one.

    But such 'boil times' also need further expalnation regarding power setting, conditions, etc.

    I guess it depends what you're looking for in a stove. I'm looking for fuel (and therefore weight) efficiency.

    If all you're looking for is speed, take the biggest, most powerful, gas-hungry burner you can find, and engulf the pot in a giant fireball...
