Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4 of 5 stars I love the weight and speed of this cook system. Every time I go backpacking with friends I end up boiling water for everyone. I can boil a cup of water by the time they are finally set up and ready to start cooking. Setup is a breeze. I love the self igniter which works every time. I wish you had better control on the flame. It tends to scorch if simmered too long. One can of fuel will allow me approximately 10 meals. This system packs up inside itself and is very light weight. I haven't had any… Full review

MSR WindPro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the most stable and easily operated stove I have used. While limited to summer use, it puts out plenty of heat and seems bullet proof. I have used both white gas stoves and canister stoves and this baby is the best. It is a beautiful work of engineering where attention to actual field use was seriously considered.   There are a lot of canister stoves that just screw directly to the top of a gas can. This design causes the cooking platform to be elevated and if the canister is of the smaller… Full review

Olicamp Xcelerator Ultra Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Light as can be, remote stove that so far has been bullet-proof. I really like that I can use this with a wind screen which makes it much more versatile than your typical canister stove. I've had this stove for eight months and have used it on five or six trips, the longest a 5-day hike in SEKI. It's been very easy to use and attaches easily to a canister. It does not have a built-in igniter but works fine with a lighter. The flame is very adjustable and is a big improvement over the Whisperlite… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Purchased this stove from WalMart in 2012. Used only three times when on camping trips. Went to use it last week while camping , no gas would come through the regulator to the burners :( As I see in other comments this stove is trash. I bought a Coleman stove to replace this. Would not recommend  Ozark Trail stoves to anyone, friend or enemy.  :( Apparently the regulators do not last very long. Only two years old and barely used and now it's shot and had to go buy a new stove, only this time I… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It boils two cups of water FAST! It boils two cups of water FAST! Makes a perfect companion to Mountain House meals! Ignition worked every time. Setup is easy and it is reliable. Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Looks like an excellent item. But it does NOT work. The regulator is a piece of junk. They should be ashamed to market a product that is WORTHLESS! In the backcountry with NO coffee, eggs etc. because the stove did not light. 50 miles to nearest breakfast joint. I was disappointed and furious. Full review

Optimus Crux Weekend HE Cook System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hot water fast with the heat-exchange system on the bottom pot. What do you get? Crux stove, 0.95-liter Heat Exchange pot, a smaller "fry pan" that doubles as a top for the larger pot, mesh storage bag, and neoprene sleeve for the foldable stove component. Everything stores into the mesh bag. It's a little bulky with the smaller pan, but still a very light system. The stove itself connects to most any fuel canister and lights up easily. The pot sits atop the foldable stove brackets and remains pretty… Full review

MSR MicroRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars MSR MicroRocket is simply the best lightweight stove bar none! I have had this stove for over one year and it lives in my trout fishing bag, not the best of places to be but out it comes 3 or 4 times a day and performs faultlessly every time. It is just so easy to set up and rapid boil or gentle simmer it does with tweak of the key control. Most day trips it is just tea and a dish of 2 minute noodles, but longer wilderness trips it does all meals too. I have made a aluminum foil wind break which… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, compact, efficient cooking solution. Both the stove and the fuel are fairly inexpensive and widely available. Super easy setup (literally just screwing the burner to the canister), easy ignition with a match or lighter. Burner is adjustable, my wife and bought two of these and we've only used them to boil water. The cooking surface is limited, so only the smallest of pans/pots would balance on the supports. Level ground is a necessity. This stove really shines when it comes time to pack it… Full review
