Recent Alcohol Stove Reviews

Vargo Triad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Vargo Triad titanium stove is a very lightweight, durable stove. It sells for around $30 which depending on how much you'll use it plays a factor as well. This stove is a neat, little compact stove I came across while looking into alcohol stoves. The stove is lightweight, being made of titanium, yet very durable. It weighs a mere ounce and you hardly know it's in your pack or even your pocket! The stove includes 6 retractable legs (3 on top 3 on bottom.) They recommend that the bottom three… Full review

Trail Designs Caldera Keg-F Stove System

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a complete ultra-lightweight alcohol cook kit for water-boil only. It uses a 750ml Fosters beer can as the pot and comes with the Caldera Cone windscreen/pot stand, lid, caddy, and more. The entire kit without fuel bottle weighs less than 7 ounces. This is a review of the Caldera Keg-F cook kit by Trail Designs. I am not associated with TD in any way nor received any special consideration. This is a complete alcohol cook kit for water-boil only. It is called the Keg-F because it uses a large… Full review

Trail Designs Sidewinder Ti-Tri

rated 5 of 5 stars After 30 years I have finally found a stove I can enjoy. I have been through Bluet canisters, various white gas and multifuel, Jetboil, Sierra zip stoves, and others but this one does the trick for me. Excellent with alcohol and wood burning modes. To be honest, I haven't even tried the esbit mode yet. If you just want a quick boil with no fuss consider the alcohol version only. Update 3/26/15: I still think this is the best stove I have ever used.  Each time I take it on a trip, I get more used… Full review

TATO Gear AB-13 Hybrid

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, versatile, and seriously cool is exactly how I'd describe this stove from TATO Gear. Built-in feet and pot stand are very well engineered and the recessed fuel port is as far as I know an industry first from the creative mind of Bryan Oates. The AB-13 is worth adding to your gear closet just for the cool factor alone, but it delivers so much more. I'm an admitted alcohol stove tinkerer and builder. I simply love playing with these things. And I would have purchased this stove if it… Full review

Esbit Alchohol Burner

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the Chinese version of a Trangia. This is the Chinese knockoff of the Trangia. The only difference I can see is the hole pattern and that the simmer/snuffer lid has a handle where the Trangia does not. I have both and cannot discern any difference in the burn pattern nor efficiency though the Trangia seems to "bloom" a slight bit faster. The caps and lids are interchangeable. I do like the "handle" on the simmer/snuffer lid better than the Trangia though as you don't need pliers or other… Full review

Vargo Triad

rated 5 of 5 stars This stove does exactly what it is made to do. I have built a good quantity of soda stoves, but they all burned up over time. I have tried a bunch of homemade stoves that worked great, but they all burned up or got damaged over time.   I got tired of making stoves. I have had my eye on this model for years, but stayed away due to  reviews of bad build quality and poor performance. Over time, I picked up a Vargo Decagon and had great luck with it after a little practice. My only complaint was it… Full review

Trangia Spirit Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Very nice stove. Gets water to a rolling boil in an efficient manner, and fits inside my Solo Stove. Highly recommended. Setup: The stove is extremely easy to set up. Pour in alcohol, set simmer ring to desired level.  Ignition: I use a ferro rod with the back side of my knife, it works really well. I'm sure a lighter would work too, just be careful not to toast your hand when you light it. Flame Control & Cooking: The burner is adjustable, but I haven't really used it much, because all of… Full review

White Box Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This stove is a little flame thrower. It does not have any type of adjustment for simmer or a way to save your unused fuel. It is not very stable with a pan on top. It needs to be used in some type of stable base. This stove is very light, sturdy, and works great to heat water if that is your only task. Have used this stove with a combination of pots and pot stands. Find it almost too hot for some applications when I do not want flames shooting up the sides or trying to cook anything but water. Full review

Evernew Ti Alcohol Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This stove does not put itself at the top of the alcohol burner class unless you combine it with the Evernew Titanium wind stand. It does not have a screw cap, is difficult to put out, and it throws a very hot flame mainly straight up (instead of out the sides like a white box side burner). It does cool much quicker than a heavy Trangia and is miserly on fuel if you simmer a pot directly on top only using the side burners. Now when you combine it with the Evernew Titantium DX stand, then this little… Full review
