Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

Optimus weekender he

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… 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

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars This lighweight stove is perfect for backpacking, camping, fishing or any outdoor activity. It boils water in a matter of minutes, is quick to set up and the fuel is cheap. The most costly part of this unit is the burner attachment itself which is made of good quality stainless steel; the fuel can only cost $5. It comes in a durable, nearly water-tight plastic case that it folds into making it easy to stuff in a pack. The fuel can itself has a neat little description of how to tell how much fuel… Full review

MSR MicroRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars I'd love to tell you something bad about this stove, but I can't. This spring/summer I have been using the Micro Rocket as my go-to stove in an effort to lighten my gear load.  Several companies make a stove like this and I chose the MSR because I have experience with the brand.  I have used this stove in temps from 35° to 95°F and in elevations up to about 5,000 feet.  Setup Fold out the legs, screw it to your gas canister, and light it.  Simple and easy. Boil times I didn't time them, but… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars If you're think you're too old-school to go with a canister stove, put your scruples aside. I finally gave my Svea a break and started packing this lightweight, hassle-free babydoll of a stove. For both sentimental and financial reasons, I like to use the trusty backpacking equipment that I bought in the mid-1970s. Amazingly, nearly all of my equipment from back then is still serviceable. But it's not all ultralight, nor is it hassle-free. Take my Svea 123 stove, for example. I bought it in 1975,… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Terrible stove for a single mom going camping with her kids. I wish I would have read the reviews before wasting my money on this product. I bought it on a whim in the store last summer and could never get the darn thing to light. Thankfully it wasn't raining enough to not be able to build a fire because this stove is a piece of crap. :(  Re-reading the instructions even did not help. I guess I will be replacing this with a better brand. Maybe tomorrow on the way to the campsite we will stop and… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars Powerful little backpacking stove. Boils water rapidly and is durable for its size and weight. I've personally used this stove on several backpacking adventures with my son's Boy Scout troop and they are durable, and have performed very well in lots of different conditions. The stove comes folded up in a small plastic container that acts to protect it in your pack. It easily is set up and connected to the fuel canister in moments. The burner does not come with an igniter, which is a bit of a disappointment,… Full review

Campingaz Turbo 270

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought this stove years ago and it's still in my backpack and I still use it on weekend trips and longer excursions. You will not regret buying this stove. I call this stove "old reliable" because it works great when it rains, when it's been really windy, really cold or really hot. Light, small and well made. I've had this stove for years and God forbid if it stopped working or was eaten by a bear, I'd go right out and buy another one. It is a great comfort knowing that even though my semi-hypothermic… Full review
