Down to 3 minutes depending on climate, altitude, etc Used countless times for all types of trips. Multi-day hiking trips in high elevations. All day hiking trips and even cycling trips. Used in single digit temps. Posts are aluminum. Easy to clean. They are not nonstick. Review: This is a great addition to your pack and with it's light weight and small form factor you won't even notice that it's there. Highly dependable. Good price. I prefer this over alcohol stoves that I have used for years.
