Recent Alcohol Stove Reviews

Trangia Mini Trangia

rated 5 of 5 stars It's perfect for boiling noodles on short solo trips. Core stove design has been available since 1958: it's well-proven. Limited pot capacity rules out serious two-person cooking. High fuel consumption rules out longer trips. Is wonderfully lightweight, entirely reliable, and unbreakable with zero maintenance. The various forms of alcohol are widely available. Wind raises fuel consumption dramatically. Not usable inside a tent and/or severe cold. Full review

Toaks Titanium Siphon Alcohol Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very lightweight and small (about 4 cm high) and 44 grams (that's the weight of the stove and the steel mesh pot stand). This photo shows the actual weight of the Toaks stove and the other photo shows the stove with a 10 cm windscreen and the Toaks storage bag. So the Toaks stove is 44 grams with steel pot stand and storage bag, put a 10 cm windscreen and the total weight is 70 grams. The pot I did my first boil test with was a 400 mil titanium mug/pot with lid. I filled it with 350 mil of cold… Full review

Vargo Triad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars $30 for a compact titanium (durable) alcohol stove (lightweight system) with folding leg anchors and pot stand! I have compared this to a lot of cooking systems and this is my favorite. I am a mechanical engineer and I have literally made hundreds of soda can stoves trying to perfect the design for durability, size, and fuel usage. I love them, but this is my "go-to" stove while hiking. I love to have three legs that I can anchor into the soil and I love having the integrated pot stand. I have had… Full review

Esbit Alchohol Burner

rated 5 of 5 stars This super lightweight burner is the perfect companion to the stove and has an amazing blend of great features that make it easy to pack, easy to use, and easy to recommend. **I bought the full stove kit that includes the alcohol burner listed above. So this review is for the entire set, that includes the burner.** I did a lot of research before settling on this stove. I know many, many folks go for the "cat food can" version or "soda can" version. This is a more modern approach/pre-fab version… Full review

Vargo Converter Stove

rated 2 of 5 stars The Vargo Converter Stove is an optional multi-fuel accessory intended to be used with the Hexagon wood stove, although the Converter Stove can be used standalone as well. Multi-fuel capabilities include alcohol, esbit, or other fuel gels and solid fuel tablets. Sturdy titanium construction provides a lightweight stove that is far from fragile. The Converter Stove is an option for anyone looking for a commercially available multi-fuel companion stove. I would say that there are better options available,… Full review

Trail Designs Caldera Cone System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The most efficient, lightweight, simple stove option out there. Though, there is a slight learning curve, and keep it out of the wind. I've been doing more solo backpacking so I needed a lighter weight stove option. After significant research I decided on the Caldera Cone. It is the lightest, most efficient option out there, as long as you are just needing to boil water. The pot stand/wind screen/heat concentrator fits my solo titanium pot perfectly. However, keep in mind it is sized to a specific… Full review

Trail Designs Caldera Keg-F Stove System

rated 5 of 5 stars Stove is lightweight and has a very efficient design. Boils 2 cups of water in 7 minutes or so. As mentioned, best for boiling water to add to rehydrate meals for one thru-hiker or two day-hikers. Highly recommend! After using the MSR WhisperLite for years on previous backpacking outings, I was glad to find/switch to the Caldera Keg-F Stove System. It is much lighter and easier to set up, and is less bulky to pack. I don't need to bring the nested pots or the gripper as well. Don't get me wrong,… Full review

Esbit Alchohol Burner

rated 4 of 5 stars The Esbit Spirit Burner (Alcohol Burner) is a nice alcohol stove with simmer control. It is lighter than the comparable Trangia and comes with a handle on the simmer-control-plate / snuffer. I picked up the Esbit Spirit Burner (alcohol burner) as an add-on when I got my Emberlit FireAnt wood-burning stove. In my mind, it was (and still is) more of a novelty item. My thinking here had been that it's a pain to go hunting for dry fuel on a wet day. Why not simply pick up an alcohol stove for those… Full review

Trangia Mini Trangia

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Most reliable stove in the woods. A light, inexpensive, yet durable piece of gear. This is the stove that could. Unless you're in really cold weather, alcohol stoves get the job done, and the Trangia Mini 28 gets it done in a lightweight compact package. All brass and without moving parts, this thing is durable. Unlike your homemade penny stoves/Pepsi can stoves you can store unused fuel in this stove. If you count grams and ounces, this may not be the stove for you as penny stoves/Pepsi can stoves… Full review
