The test was 2 cups of water starting at 48 degrees to 212 degrees.

I took this pic right after I placed the pot of water on it. I should have let the stove warm up just a tad more before I did that.

It took 5 minutes, 14 seconds to bring to full boil. The original aluminum cup that comes with the Svea is not that useful, so I went and invested 8 dollars in a "Camping Gaz Globe Trotter" pot set. Its the perfect size for the Svea.

do not leave the key in stove when burning or you find out the hard way :lol: :lol:

Yeah I removed the key from the stove and it now serves as a key fob for my motorcycle keys since the stove will be used on motorcycle trips. As long as I don't lose my keys... :-D
