Heat shields eliminated the need to elevate
them, but IMO those stoves are boring.
I prefer the 425C.
Has the best of all worlds.
Stable legs, old-style case, removable
grate, and spring-clip wind screen holders.
Plus the model number embossing on the case is italicized.
I don't know why, but I like that.

Walk a mile in a man's shoes before you criticize him--then you're a mile away, and he has no shoes.

The straight legs of the NL and B are just awful. The crooked legs of the C and D are better, but you still have a very narrow support base that can be an issue on things like picnic tables. I'm sure more than one person had some form of an accident while not setting the legs up proprerly. I'm guessing when they went to a latch system (the legs also hold down the lid) they saw an opportunity to ditch the legs. That said, my favorite user stove is the 425D.
