For a few reasons;

It's a cool little stove, comes in a cool little case
We have no way of heating up soup, cooking, or making coffee inside our QS10
For Coffee outside
it can stay packed up in the bench seat bunk storage.

Until recently I used two similar stoves. Mine are branded 'Scripto' but have the same basic design (athough not as nice looking as the Iwatani) & use the same butane fuel cans. They are ideal for quickly and conveniently heating something up or boiling water etc. Where that type of stove becomes less useful is when you want a longer cooking time. As the cans of fuel release gas they get cold. If you cook too long the can gets colder & colder, enough to get frost on it, and the pressure drops. I've had them drop enough for the flame to go out. Still, I think they are a great stove and I'd recommend them too. Great for most camping use but not so great if you intend to simmer your chili for two hours.

Iwatani make some really beautiful higher-end stoves that use the same fuel. In Japan people use them in their apartments as their main cooking appliance. In Korea these kind of butane stoves are extremely common -- most restaurants in South Korea will put one of these on your table if you order bulgogi and then you cook the meat yourself. (In the higher-end restaurants pretty waitresses will cook the meat for you at your table. I was at one very expensive restaurant in Seoul that had one waitress per table!  -- much better service than a Denny's).

I like those little stoves. They are amazingly convenient. The butane canisters getting frost on them are no different than the propane 1lb tanks doing the same thing. Good choice

[attachment id="1498" thumbnail="1"]I have a kitchen set up I bring camping, I don't usually use the trailer for cooking.  This is a "Cook Partner" single burner stove, works great and very compact. The chuck box is what I bring for tent camping, it stays at home when using the CampLite.

In my experience the butane cans will frost up quicker & have a more immediate impact on the flame when the do. Still I like them and also find the stoves very convenient.

an update on the little Iwatani stove:

Love it. It's easy to start, easy to modulate the flame, heats quickly. Great for another heat source, for coffee, sauces, water...

I had no issues with canisters freezing up. They lasted reasonably long too. I went through 4 in one week, cooking every night, coffee percolator every morning.
