Recent Alcohol Stove Reviews

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

Trangia Hard Anodized Stove Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars I am a fan of Tragia cook sets. I own this set in the 27 and also own the Mini-T 28. Both are great and have different uses. This one, the 27 series size, is especially nice. Makes a nice camp kitchen set or base-camp trail kitchen set. Very easy to use. Can buy fuel anywhere. I pretty much agree with all the 5 star reviews for this and the other Trangia cooksets. Setup is a breeze! No parts to break and it does what it was designed to do...deliver fully cooked foods in a self contained set for… Full review

Trangia Mini Trangia

rated 5 of 5 stars I do love this little stove! Best used for day trips and weekend trekking adventures. Perfect for solo or 2-person meals. I have used my Mini-T 28 often. I do day trips, weekend trips, and even take it on road trips. When used for its intended use it works flawlessly. By that I mean, measure when, where, and how you are going to be cooking. Don't expect it to be the be-all-end-all of camping stoves.   It's perfect for the solo camper, weekend trekker, day tripper. Food portions are great for one… Full review

Homemade Alcohol Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars A great cost-effective alternative that is functional, lightweight, and compact. You can also easily find the fuel source at just about any gas/service station domestically and internationally.   Ease of Use: It's really easy. You just add liquid fuel into the canister, light it, and place your pot/can on top. The flames come out of the holes in the side and heat the food from underneath within the can. It is difficult to extinguish the flame when done cooking. I tried to give a quick blow and… Full review

Alocs Mini Alcohol Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great knockoff Trangia Mini stove without the pots from China. If like me you are finding the escalating cost of fossil fuels for your stove not to your liking this little beauty is well worth consideration. Here in New Zealand a canister of butane for a Jetboil can be as high as $17 in the more remote areas. Butane is quick and easy, alcohol is slower and dirt cheap.  This Alocs stove comes with a fuel proof cap, a simmer top and a pot stand which the stove fits inside, all in a small mesh bag,… Full review

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
