Pros: Heats up a pot of cold water to boil in 20 minutes. More than enough BTUs to get the job done.
Cons: Don't buy it for the looks - The paint burns off due to the flame and heat.
Recommended? YesThis thing burns! With the lid on my pot, I can have 5 gallons of water up to a boil in less than 20 minutes with the gas cranked up. I'm a tall guy, so prop this thing up on 3 cinder blocks to get it to a good height. The flame and the heat do make the paint flake off, so don't get this thing if you want it to look good.

Pros: Heats 6 gallons of cold water to boiling in 20 minutes. Works very well for brewing!
Cons: The manufacturers painted the unit and the paint needs to burn off for a while, which causes terrible fumes to be put off. Gross.
Recommended? YesThis high pressure cooker is awesome for brewing! It has knocked about 2 hours off of the brewing process and allows for full boils. The only problem I have with it is that the manufacturers painted the unit and the paint needs to burn off. This not only took quite some time and propane, but it put off a lot of harmful chemicals that could have gotten in my wort had I been trying to brew beer the first time I tried it out. I would recommend this burner, but make sure to run it for a while first!

Pros: boils the beer super fast
Cons: paint burns off, sounds like a jet
Recommended? YesGreat burner for boiling! Is a little loud, like a jet, but you can still have a conversation while standing next to it. The paint burns off the first few times that you use it but it doesn't affect the beer. Also not the greatest for mashing but does work.

Pros: more BTU's than you'll ever need, sounds like a jet engin. windscreen
Cons: air to propane ratio is difficult to get right so that the flames aren't sputtering
Recommended? YesMy first propane burner, Works great, but you may have to fiddle with the air intake to get the flames to burn steady and not sputter. windscreen works
