Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple, effective. The Jetboil Flash is a lightweight and efficient stove that will quickly boil water for tea. We have also used this beautiful stove when bringing water to temperature for rehydrating backpacker food-in-a-bag :) The Jetboil Flash (older model) is a great stove for boiling water for tea or coffee. We have also used the stove to boil water when reconstituting dehydrated backpacker food. As you see in the attached video, setup is quick and easy. The wind was blowing a little while… Full review

BRS 3000T

rated 5 of 5 stars If you're looking for a functional, ultralight canister stove, this is your stove. It's extremely light and compact, but sturdy enough to get the job done. I have taken the BRS on several trips with over 100 miles worth of backpacking and have not had any issues that would make me want to look for a different stove. The stove comes in a tiny stuff sack and is easy to remove and setup. It has three rotating feet for the pot which all rotate into position once you flip the flame adjustment lever out. Full review

Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Best lightweight stove on the market. Save fuel by boiling water in a jiffy. Also excellent for cooking meals in the pot. Stove is very easy to set up and use. Igniter is built in so no looking for a fire source. Flame control is excellent with the simmer regulator.  You can cook almost anything with this stove. Depending on elevation, boils two cups in less than two minutes. Works great in wind unless its a really strong wind then shielding is needed. One of the best stoves I have ever used. Full review

BRS 3000T

rated 5 of 5 stars This tiny stove is extremely compact and lightweight, yet puts out a lot of heat. Perfect for a small solo cook kit. I have had this stove for two seasons now and in my opinion, it is a gem of a titanium, ultralight mini-stove! It is a perfect match to a 4-oz isobutane tank and a 500-700 ml pot for a solo cook kit. When folded, it measures barely 2 inches long by 1 inch around and weighs less than 1 oz (25 gr). It's barely larger than pocket change: And this little guy can really put out some heat! Full review

Primus ExpressSpider

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good all-around stove for three-season use. This compact white gas stove is the smallest stove that I own. It weighs 10 oz with the pump, which is 4 oz lighter than the MSR WhisperLite (14 oz with pump). It's also a bit smaller and all together perfect for one-person cooking. The pump uses a leather gasket instead of a rubber gasket as in the MSR pumps. Either way, if you maintain them they will last for years. I was drawn to the Primus brand partly because of the metal pump. I got my first WhisperLite… Full review

Ozark Trail Camp Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars No problems for four years now. Would have given 5 stars if easier to take apart for complete cleaning. WOW, first off, had mine for four years now. No problems at all. Noticed some people say you can't buy a new regulator tube. Well read your operating instructions that came with the stove. The part number for the tube is in there. LOL read your paperwork that comes with your equipment, it's a no-brainer. Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Backpacking cooking system/stove. The Jetboil Flash is an incredible cooking system. Brings water to a boil quickly (2 mins). Very easy to use with built-in igniter. Have used on several backpacking trips and always leaves me impressed. Pretty perfect really. Full review

Primus Eta Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Might be one of the most overlooked stoves out there. Singles and couples would do well to research this stove for its ease, portability, weight, and design. I LOVE my Primus ETA Lite. As a backpacker I've used this on three major multi-day trips and several shorter trips. The self contained design (fuel canister and stove all fit in mug with locking lid) makes it easy to throw in the pack. The mug locks on the stove so that you're not worried about stability, but it also includes a stabilizer for… Full review

Optimus Crux Weekend HE Cook System

rated 4 of 5 stars Exceptional stove for both the weekender or the serious through-hiker. Great quality at a competitive price. This stove is perfect for those of you wanting to get into backpacking without spending a fortune. That said, this is not a cheaply built product. I find myself taking this everywhere, even on fishing trips just to show off making coffee for those long all-nighters that I like to pull. Setup: Included mesh bag contains the pot and lid, which doubles as a smaller cook pot. Inside of that you… Full review
