An integrated cook system that simplifies set-up and makes for a more user-friendly stove to use on the trail.

Primus says: 

A larger version of the Lite Plus, this compact, lightweight and fuel-efficient top-mounted kitchen solution is the perfect choice for 2 people.

This compact and lightweight backpacking stove system is the larger version of our Lite-line of stove systems that can easily feed 2. The extremely efficient heating system boils water in a flash and packs your kitchen needs away in a small package. Attach and lock the 1.0L pot to the burner with a simple twist. The Piezo igniter lights the stove with a push of a button so you can boil water quickly. The Laminar Flow Burner is extremely compact and puts out a 4500BTU (1500 W) flame, boiling 0.5L water in two and a half minutes in a quieter cooking experience. Simply pour directly from the pot spout or use the included pots support pegs for use with ANY pot or pans. If you are just hanging around, you can unbuckle the handle and pair with the included suspension kit while waiting out the weather under a tree or in a portaledge. Easily pack the stove attached to a 230g gas canister into the hard-anodized aluminum pot that has a cork insulated sleeve made of G-1000 Eco Lite fabric for burn free handling.

Our Verdict

I like the twist lock system, which securely locks the pan to the stove head; it's simple but seems more effective than other similar stoves I have used. As this stove set-up is designed for two, it snuggly fits a 230g gas canister inside, which, even if I'm going solo for anything over five days, I'd always pack anyway, so it's nice to see a stove system accommodate that.

The lid is a snug fit but is easy to remove after boiling, and there is no chance you will burn your hands; the lid also doubles as a cup. I'm also a fan of the fact the Lite XL Stove System has an actual handle, it gives greater control when pouring or handling the stove, and again this reduces the likely hood off of accidental burnings. The option to use any pan without purchasing or bringing additional equipment is also a big plus for me.
