Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars JetBoil makes hot water happen fast, in a medium weight package. Mine has been flawless. It goes in my hunting pack when I need hot food quickly and quietly, in fire ban areas, as well as at altitude. Mine heats water for hot drinks, Mountain House, and Campbell's condensed soup. This stove is extremely convenient when you are reheating or cooking instant types of food.  I've used it at 9K feet in the autumn, and been very happy.  A 110gram fuel can lasts forever. The only thing I would change… Full review

Soto Micro Regulator Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for cooking fish or boiling water. The Soto OD-1R Micro Regulator stove is a versatile canister stove with the ability to evenly cook fish, boil water, and everything in between. It's perfect for backpackers who like to cook or prepare their meal while out on the trail. A few months ago I was on the hunt for a new canister stove. There are a lot of options that fall within a pretty wide price range, so to help narrow my options I looked at stoves that were highly packable and able to cook… Full review

Primus Eta Spider

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very well made, stable, dependable, rugged, super-quiet and efficient stove. Delivered from Primus to work with canister (LP) gas, but will also burn white gas, kerosene, paraffin, and unleaded fuel with an optional multi-fuel kit. Not sure, but I would not be surprised if it would also burn Jet-A fuel. bare bones setup without the windscreenstove sitting inside of the windscreen. hard to see but each foot is secured by a magnet in the base of the windscreen. notice all the tiny holes in the "collander"… Full review

Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)

rated 1.5 of 5 stars One trick pony. The annoying thing about Jetboil is the igniters. They last about a week of use before eroding away, totally unacceptable when you consider what these devices are used for and where they go. Why Jetboil allows such inferior igniters to be used in their product mystifies me. I would not use one again and in fact sold all of my Jetboil  gear. Another reason not to use them is that the pots are useless on anything other than the Jetboil stove. i.e they are no good on a hot plate or… Full review

MSR WindBoiler

rated 4 of 5 stars 100km p hour winds — no problems. Back from a 2-day backpacking trip with this new stove. I took an almost exhausted gas cylinder (20% left). I did 4 boils of 240ml of water and the gas is still not exhausted. Boil time was 2 minutes in up to 100 km per hour winds. The first time I started it the flame blew out before I loaded the pot / heat exchanger assembly on the stove.  After this experience I learned how to keep the lighted match on the stove (waterproof matches are also WIND proof!) until… Full review

Coleman Xtreme Powermax Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great stove, and great companion to my 2-burner model. I haven't used it for awhile because I, um, don't have it anymore. Looking for replacement. I've read that fuel is no longer available. True? I haven't used my single or two burner for a few years, but have lots of fuel saved up. My single burner model lost a leg (broke), and when I took it to a buddy to have him tack it back together with an aluminum welder, one of his guys accidentally threw the whole thing out. I'm hoping to find a replacement,… Full review

MSR WindBoiler

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The MSR Windboiler is a one-trick pony — it boils water efficiently even in high winds — and it does that one trick extremely well. But lighting the stove in those same winds is not so easy, and the plastic canister stand is rather fragile. Test Conditions I received this stove in late October as a Review Corps assignment. As I live in Norway, I have mostly used the stove in relatively cold conditions, including cool (10˚C/50˚F), windless conditions in my back yard, in a moderate breeze while… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this little thing. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I love this stove. It packs a punch for its micro size. The stove simmers extremely well and boils up water quickly. Ignition is a one click and you're lit with the piezo igniter. Overall, I am extremely happy I bought this little baby. Full review

Snow Peak LiteMax Titanium

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used this stove and would recommend it to all backpackers. I have used this in the cold and warm temperatures. It works great for boiling water and cooking spam as well as heating gravy. It worked well (the spam was burnt a bit). It can attach to MSR canisters and I assume to most on the market. Full review
