I have one, and it's pretty fun! Once it gets hot, it REALLY cranks and you can do some good cooking/boiling water. They also have a grill attachment that spreads out the flame, i want to try that, it would be great for a trip to the beach!
Because it's optimized for backpacking, it's a little flimsy. You probably wouldn't want to cook on it every day, and you couldn't cook for more than two people on it. I already bent one of the tripod legs on mine so it's a bit rickety now. Look at their "Homestove" version for one that might be better suited for "TL". It's not available in the US for purchase yet, but maybe we could write them a proposal to send one out to TL for homesteading testing purposes.
