Is the Soto Amicus a BETTER and SMALLER and CHEAPER Pocket Rocket Deluxe?
That might be the case, but regardless we're talking about this stove and it does have that built in it's got an excellent carrying case and it does have a built-in piezo igniter. But if you want to save two or three grams, you can get it without the pizza igniter. So what do i think i'll tell y'all? I really like this stove, i kind of see it as a more compact version of the pocket rocket deluxe and at almost half the price i love

BRS-3000T - Heat transfer to gas bottle
It's normal for the BRS, but it's not a good side effect. I have the Soto Amicus and it keeps the bottle cool. If you get the Soto roaring I notice the bottle cools down below ambient temperature because of depressurization.
Lightweight Stove
For me, this stove is of very high quality, light weight, and affordable price
