The phoenix is thinner than the trangia but the simmer lid is great I have replaced my trangia one with it. $10 and it came with a potstand like the mini trangia but hard anodized.

It came today,akk I can say is WOW!
It is almost 3 inches in Diameter
it's a little over 2 inches high, and comes
with a Cap with a rubber seal
and a simmer ring that has a handle
to control simmer.
It looks cool just like a mega Trangia

the stand is STEEL with folding legs,
and pot arms
folded close is 5 1/4 inch diameter
at an inch and 1/4 deep
Unfolded it is 4 1/4 deep
for 15 bucks on ebay and free shipping it was a deal
they have one like it with the standard type trangia holder
for the same price
tommorow will be sunny here so I'll go photograph Birds
at the wetland reserve
let You know how it fires

I got to the blind I photograph from before dawn,
I took the Stove & a peak 1 aluminum Stove Cover/2 piece cookset with
the Pot grabber.
I filled the stove half way up & lit it
placing the smaller pot on the stove carefully as it only has 3 top legs.
in about 6 Minutes I had 3/4 of that pot boiling.
So I removed it and put in some folgers crystalls a tablespoon & 1/4 for my morning Coffee.
while waiting for it to cool I put a pack of Ramen 2 hot dogs into the bigger pot.
it came to a full boil in about 9 minutes when I dropped 2 eggs into my mix
at a full boil, letting it boil about 6 minutes and removed carefully
and snuffed it with the neat Snuffer Simmer ring with the handle on it.
to control simmer, and it went right out, as I wanted it to.
After the Stove cooled I put the Lid on it.
and had breakfast just as the Glorious california Sun began to show forth
It was quite filling.
about 9:30 i wanted some more Coffee and discovered the Stove still was 1/4 filled
enough for more coffee.
I am pleased with my $15.00 Deal with free shipping from Hong kong
what the Stove lacked was instructions.
but not to worry If You know how to lite a Trangia.
this one is just the same just slightly larger than the Large Trangia.
happy camping

It's easy to see why! All that cooking and still had fuel left. Amazing stove. Good find :D

California sure has had their share of rain and snow. You lucked out seeing the sun rise. Did you get some good photos?
