Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

Ozark Trail Camp Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Unserviceable, stopped working after third use. I thought I got a good deal since it is so cheap, but after third camping trip it started acting strange. First the burner will not light up from the piezo igniter, then it fire gets weaker and weaker then it went dead. I tried changing fuel canister, cleaning the regulator, checking the burner and fuel line, but the same problem. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars The MSR PocketRocket is a staple in my backpack for all my trail hikes and overnights. MSR engineers have done their homework on this little marvel making it super lightweight and compact while delivering high power to cook your meals on the trail. Be sure to add this gem to your list of 'mission critical' equipment. Setup: The MSR PocketRocket sets up in under a minute ready to get to the task of cooking your next meal. Ignition: The Piezo lighter that comes with the purchase is marginally effective… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars This is all the stove I need out in the backcountry. I bought this little stove couple years ago at REI after one of the sales people explained every stove on the shelf. I decided that this one was all I really needed as a solo hiker out in the wilderness. It has not let me down! Works like a charm. It is durable and lightweight and packs away in a nice small little plastic case. It fits into my GSI Soloist kitchen set as well. I don't need anything else.  Full review

Alpkit BruKit

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, self contained cooking system. Gas contained within cook pot. Best to boil water rapidly. Recommended, although not for ultra lightweight backpackers. Worked exactly as promised on website. Up to 230 gram gas will fit within brupot. Has held up well, although only been used for seven days so far. Seems to be good on gas consumption. Is a fair copy of the Jetboil at half the price. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product, great price. The MSR PocketRocket is a great little stove. It is lightweight and compact. Boils water quickly as well. The only drawback that I have found is that there is no igniter built into it. It is however very easily lit with a lighter or match (that you are probably carrying anyhow). Fuel is readily available and pretty easy to find. This is a great little stove, with a very nice price to go with it. Full review

BRS-3000T Ultralight Butane Canister Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A.T.'s review was very thorough. As an owner of a BRS-3000T as well, I thought I'd echo his comments. If all you need to do is boil water, this is a great ultralight stove for you. The BRS-3000T, at 25g, is the lightest canister stove I've found. I also have a very similar stove from Olicamp that weighs 48g w/storage sack. ¬† The stove easily stores in my 750ml mug along with a foam coffee cup and windscreen. It's tiny. The downside to the size is a relatively narrow pot support diameter. It's been… Full review

BRS-3000T Ultralight Butane Canister Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The most lightweight and the most compact yet powerful backpacking butane canister stove is the only stove one needs for 3-season backpacking trips. It only weighs 25 grams, yes, this is true, and takes virtually no space yet brings 2 cups of water to hard boil in less then 3 minutes, and all those features for less than $15. If you can use butane canister fuel in your conditions, you can use this stove. I own and use a few different canister stoves: Primus ClassicTrail, Primus Express, even no… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4 of 5 stars My Jetboil is reliable, fast, and efficient. My son and I have shared one for several years of backpacking in Virginia in all kinds of weather. Full review

MSR SuperFly

rated 5 of 5 stars Solid choice for minimalists who want to do more than boil water. Broad compatibility with fuel canisters from vendors across the globe is a big plus. I imagine the MSR PocketRocket¬†outsells the SuperFly by a large margin as it's lighter, smaller, and cheaper, but there's a place for this stove among campers who expect to do more than boil water. With its broad burner, the SuperFly spreads heat nicely, and can reliably scramble eggs, saute vegetables, brown hamburger etc. just as you might at home,… Full review
