Does this drop include the fuel canister? It's not listed in the overview and I assumed it's just for illustration purpose only.
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 fist 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 really, but sort of. I can only find the older pkg at REI with two pots that weighs the same. To some, it would truly be the same if not better for having two pots and more room. To others, significantly different. The New River pot appears to be mostly the same as the old bigger one, with a grooved, flatter bottom to prevent slippage and a clear lid top. They also raised the MSRP $10 so that the MassDrop price is fairly decent compared to what you're gonna get it for elsewhere (confirmed with a quick but not extensive google). Still, the stove is the same and weight of the package the same as the older pkg that is now discontinued, so if you have or want to wait to use your 20% at REI to make it $35.96, then yes, it seems like a better deal. Wouldn't be surprised if this makes it to the REI Outlet and might get even more off, though being discontinued means it could sell out before then. Personally, I'd rather have this newer version, even if its $4 more. The stove is the bomb and I paid a little over $30 for it, so around $10 for a relatively light pot with clear lid that definitely fits cannister and stove is not bad at all.

the item you’re talking about is $45 at rei right now. It’s a bit different with two pots with one being the lid for the other. This particular model is $55 at backcountry.com I believe. Both good options and it’s up to anyone searching to decide what’s best for them. This is definitely a bargain from massdrop.
This is a fantastic buy @ $39.99, as Campsaver has it on today at $44.97 (one of their 12 days of Christmas deals)
Seems so, the description reads that the stove comes with the igniter: "The burner head evenly disperses heat even in windy conditions, while the large adjusting valve gives you full control of the gas output. It even has the Stealth Igniter, built-in piezo igniter, so you can start the stove without an external flame source."
Doe the stove in this drop come with the igniter?,,, one picture shows it does,,, one does not??

Interesting observation on those photos. They do make versions of this stove with and without the igniter - looks like they just weren't careful with photo selection. I have a similar stove (Soto Windmaster) with the igniter, and it is excellent. Looks like this drop is supposed to be the version with igniter, so if you go for it I'd make sure it arrives that way!

This comes with the igniter
