Recent Alcohol Stove Reviews

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. I absolutely love the Sidewinder Ti Tri. I am not a fan of freeze dried meals for the most part, so usually simmer cook… 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

Evernew Ti DX Set With Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars One has to experiment with setting it up with both the base and windscreen, just the base, and just the windscreen to get the best of all possible worlds. (This is best accomplished at home instead of on the trail.) I use both to boil water with my Fire Maple heat exchanger pot. It will boil a liter and a half of water faster than my microwave. I use the burner and just the base to make espresso coffee in two minutes. If I want to simmer a pot and cook something that takes medium heat (like pancakes),… Full review

Vargo Decagon

rated 5 of 5 stars Soldier approved. This stove is nearly indestructible. I have taken it on two military deployments and it has survived with no damage. I have also used it indoors on my stove top during power outages, even though it's not recommended, alcohol is a very clean burning fuel. Very happy with this stove. Full review
