The Windpro windscreen is lacking in good design however. Its too easy to crinkle it out of round and then it catches pots which can lead to nasty accidents with pots of boiing water tipping.
Those that do a couple of day outings may not quibble but for multiweek outings I made a much sturdier windscreen out of heavy aluminum flashing thats adjustable to pot diameter.
Last trip we were out for six days on one eight ounce canister of Brunton isobutane.
The WindPro is not bottom heavy..an oversize pot especially one that is not serrated on the bottom can tip it over. Its definitely for smaller parties or the more minimal kitchen (not as minimalist as the pop can stove though!)

Ontario Parks banned them last year at campsites.
Too bad. I found that kind of stove useful. I could fly with the burner and pick up fuel easily at the destination.
I use a propane-isobutane Snowpeak Gigapower Micromax. It folds super compact, has only three prongs instead of four (makes the pots more stable), and heats up nicely. Plus, it fits inside any pot (or cup) you use! Since I don't camp in freezing temperatures, I don't have to worry about slow heat from cold fuel.
Edited to add: Cost was only $59.95 regular, but I got it for a bit over $40. It also comes with an ignitor standard.
Although, when I bought mine it was 3 for $15...
I used the Pocket Rocket on my latest trip. One can of fuel lasted the whole trip practically (5.5 days). Gave out the last night. That was 3 people with light cooking, but boiling water every am & most pms. I thought that was pretty good!!
now I just have to find people who will come to a stove making party. Maybe beer will help boost the guest list.
