Pro and Cons for this Vital Grill review

PRO:

  • Very little fuel to boil or cook with is necessary, so there isn’t waste time processing wood/fuel before you start cooking.
  • Stable and hard to tip over accidentally, even with a large heavy pot of water atop it.
  • Pot supports are adjustable, so it can hold very tiny cups or large and heavy pots / frypans. There are two speed settings for the fan and a damper mechanism that let you raise and lower the flames
  • Fast and hot! Vital Grill is able to boil 32oz (1 liter) of water in less than 3 mins.
  • The heat of the flame is controllable by adjusting the damper. Most wood stoves have no heat control.

CONS:

  • A bit heavier than other wood stoves ( 1.5 pounds / 700 grams).
  • Technology dependent. The most important component, the fan, works only with the battery.
  • Batteries are fast to get empty and can reach from 5 to 10 hours of autonomy ( 2 AA battery take a few spares).
  • The stove requires constant attention as the fuel burns rather quickly. If you don’t pay overlook for 10 minutes, the flame can easily go out.
