Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Used it two times, then on third time no gas feeds to the burner's regulator. This is a piece of crap, a waste of money, don't buy and there should be a recall on them and get our money back. I would have given it ZERO stars, but it wouldn't let me... Piece of crap.

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 2 of 5 stars While both my burners and regulator work great, this stove is not worth its weight. You would think a nearly 10-lb stove could support boiling a stockpot full of chicken? Nope. I used this as my main cook top for 6 months, mainly boiling meat, noodles, and heating canned food before it failed me and I gave it away. It failed when I went to boil some chicken leg quarters. After maybe 10 minutes of boiling I see my stockpot is crooked, so I pull it off and see the grate has collapsed. While it is… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars The Jetboil Flash is a superb compact system. It is a well tried and tested camping kitchen that offers a number of great features including very high efficiency, low fuel use, windproofing, push button ignition that actually works, and a very safe to use design. The Jetboil has climbed Everest, been taken on expeditions to Antarctica, and helped Ukrainian families survive the winter. You can’t go wrong buying one of these and it easily falls into our top 3 spot with a reliable, effective design. Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars Small, compact, reliable, no-fuss. Love this stove! Hi. My name is Cadenza and I'm a coffee addict. Oops. Sorry. Wrong meeting. When I want coffee, I want it now! On a 7-day backpacking/camping trip I will take a whole pound of Starbucks Verona just for myself. I can usually make it last the week. Occasionally, I will boil water for a meal, but I generally cook real food on a campfire. The stove's main purpose in life is to give me quick coffee.  The GigaPower auto is as good as it gets from the… Full review

Coleman Max Micro Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars I have never had any trouble lighting it. I like that it connects right on top of the fuel and uses the fuel tank as a stable base. Also provides a nice stable base for pot to cook on. Very lightweight. Sorry, I don't have a fuel canister to show with it in the pictures. Very easy to get lit. I love that it is so compact and easy to use. I have had it for approximately 5 years and haven't had any problems with it. I keep it in the box it came in which is bent and ripped and falling apart but the… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I bought this piece of junk 3-4 years ago, pretty much for emergency situations. Used it twice (it's still shiny) went to use it last week and it would not light at all. Walmart puts out junk when it comes to camping supplies. Do not buy this, you will be sorry. Junk Full review

Primus Eta Solo

rated 5 of 5 stars Great stove for solo trips. Have used for solo backpacking trips. Example: two-day trip into Harriman State Park in N.Y. Boiled water to rehydrate two entrees, one breakfast, four cups of coffee, and boiled water to fill a bowl and sponge bathe with twice. The above used about a third of the small fuel canister. Attach canister with fuel knob closed, open the valve slightly and light. Attach pot and adjust flame. The two rubber release clips need to be pinched tightly to release pot; make sure… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The PocketRocket is a compact, high power stove for those looking to cook small meals on the trail. I purchased my old MSR PocketRocket right after college and used it quite happily for several years before finally upgrading away to a Snow Peak GigaPower stove.   The PocketRocket is a relatively small stove with great power output. It does have a few drawbacks, but nothing you can't easily work around. In the end, I put mine on a shelf due to its size. While the PocketRocket is compact compared… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact but strong and stable. Auto-ignitor is fragile, however. This is a compact, but powerful design. Sets up quickly just by screwing on to a gas canister. I chose this model over the Jetboil partly because of its four arms, which allow it to stay very stable in the field. Combined with a gas canister stand, this thing is rock solid. As far as I'm concerned, its sole weakness has been the ignitor, which worked well at first but then broke quite easily just from removing the stove from its case. Full review
