Amicus Stove with Igniter

(5 customer reviews)


“Soto makes extremely good stoves and the Amicus is no exception.” (Phillip Werner, Section Hiker)

I’m a stove collector and I recently bought an Amicus and just got to see the leg unfolding mechanism. The way it uses a sprung rivet that lets the leg rotate and catch on the pivot is a very clever design! I’m surprised that none of the stove reviewers caught it but it is an excellent design since it deploys quickly, locks securely and easily folds back down by just gently pushing it off the latch. This is not to mention it folds up to be very compact without the legs flipping out when it is put back into the stuff sack. It really is a design worthy of praise. Eugene C.

SOTO’s first low cost stove with high-end performance. Hidden electric line for igniter. Light weight, compact and shock resistant with improved ignition. Unique raised ledge at the crown of the burner head combined with a concave burner surface for increased performance under windy conditions. Spring-loaded pot supports are engineered for easy set up and pot stability.

“The Soto Amicus is a great all-weather stove and unarguably the best canister stove I have used thus far. It has definitely earned a top spot in my gear closet.” (Brian Hartman, Outdoor Backpack Gear Tester)

    By way of disclosure, I don’t own an Amicus, (yet). I own two Muka stoves that are no-longer produced, yet they’re still 100% supported and warrantied by Soto. This is what is so impressive to me! These folks take care of their products and customers and that’s why I’m proud to own Soto products!

    Reliable simplicity. The perfect balance of function and form.

    BUY IT !~
    Let me tell you what nobody is talking about…..I took this on a 15 day 150 mile walk and used it 2 times a day. With an Optimus HEAT EXCHANGER POT I boiled 2 cups of water in less than 2 minutes. That being said…with a 100 Gram gas can I still had between 1/3rd and 1/2 can of gas left over…….less than 5 grams per boil. GAS MILAGE ROCKS.

    The burner made very well . What can not be said about the case in which it is placed. It is sewn roughly and sloppy and takes up a lot of space. Why not sew the cover not in the form of a cone, but in the form of a cylinder in the shape of a burner. Because of this, it does not fit into the mug. This trifle spoils the whole impression of a good product.

    I bought this stove as an alternative to my Trangia. I was waffling between this or a snow peak stove but opted for this after reading some strong reviews. I opted for the integrated igniter just to go for something different than usual (I’ve never used an integrated igniter that reliably works). Lo and behold, the igniter didn’t work out of the box on the stove I got. It was disappointing and made me wish I’d saved the $5 if it was going to arrive broken anyways. It’s a tidy little stove and I’m happy with it otherwise, but starting with a broken component was a big let down.
