Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

Snow Peak GigaPower Manual

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Purchased this from REI, great little stove. I own three alcohol stoves (Vargo Triad, and two I made) and this packs down fairly small compared to the others. Fuel is a bit bulky, but they last for 3 days (3 meals a day.) Highly recommended to use on a backpacking trip if you want food or heat FAST. Alcohol is a little slower and unreliable in certain conditions. Recommended to purchase the Snow Peak windscreen and titanium cookware as it all fits snugly in the 700 mL pot. For a detailed review… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars We use this stove for canoe picnic breakfasts (paddle to an island and make breakfast), for canoe camping trips, and for short winter hikes when we may want to stop and make a hot drink. It has shown itself to be reliable in the temperature range we have used it in, and certainly works well at its basic purpose for us...boil and heat up water! First used this stove on a late winter breakfast hike...temperature was about 30 degrees, and the stove worked just fine. Obviously, if there is a strong… Full review

Nomad Life Titanium Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This sub 1oz stove puts out some serious heat and packs up small. Only one small problem. Looking for a stove to better fit my GSI Minimalist set, I found this small sub 1oz stove on Amazon. For $22, I figured I could take a chance. I also found some reviews on YouTube under the name BRS 3000T. This stove is also sold under the name Nomad Life for $25. Normally I like to live with something for a while before reviewing, but I wanted to let people know about one minor flaw on this stove.....It may… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to use, lightweight burner stove. I've had a liquid fuel stove for years (MSR SimmerLite), but wanted something more compact and lighter for when I solo backpack or for short overnights with another person. The burner is small and compact. It fits into my cook set, taking up less space in my pack. Easy to light and control the amount of flame form the burner. Connection to fuel canister is easy.  One downside is the wasted fuel canister when the fuel is spent. But you can always scrap the… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don't do it! If you have purchased one of these, look for your receipt and return it to Walmart or wherever you bought it.  Bought one new and sent it with my son on a trip to Canada. The piece of junk won't light! Returning it for a full refund when he gets back.  Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars The Jetboil Zip is a great choice for anyone wanting an affordable and highly effective personal cooking system that works well on overnights and thru-hikes alike. Don’t let that hiker appetite slow you down, use the Zip and your hunger will be gone in a jiff! I put this system to the test with several overnight and weekend trips before finally taking it on a section hike of the AT. The first 1,000 miles NOBO and I had the Zip with me every step of the way. I used it to boil water and cook different… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite piece of equipment! I'm on my second MSR PR, but the other one was used and abused and held up long past what I expected. I carry a small neoprene pad for under the canister when it's below 10° F. Full-on for boiling water is its strength. However, flame control is great—I have a small titanium pan for cooking quesadillas and vegeburgers. (A little bit of olive oil keeps the food from sticking and burning directly over the flame.) Does okay in the wind and altitude, I've used it at… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars When I first received the PocketRocket I was a little disappointed it didn't have a piezo ignition. After having used it in countless hikes against other stoves, I have nothing to complain about. I almost always heat, eat, and finish my meal before anyone else's water is even boiling. Setup: Fast. Just flick out the three prongs and screw it on.  Ignition: If using a portable piezo, always lights in just a couple of clicks, or if you get to know your own stove, lights on the first click. I bought… Full review
