Origo stoves

Looking for feedback on the Origo stove line that uses non pressurized alcohol. It appears to be easy to use and ignite as well as not having any major downsides/dangerous aspects as one might have with propane (explosions) if the system was not properly maintained or had a faulty installation.

Some have told me that it is not a "hot" flame and that it takes forever to boil water and cook with this system. This feedback with 3rd hand, however, not from folks with this system. Can anyone with the system speak to this?

Is Origo the only player in the non pressurized alcohol arena? If others exist, anyone know the company names?

My goals for cooking are to have a system that I can use for short trips (mostly weekends, occasionaly up to 10 days of cruising). Probably will not use oven much, but want to boil water for coffee/tea and use grill tops for some cooking.

Thanks for your thoughts.
