Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Never failed me, reliable, boils fast, small and convenient. I can always rely on MSR products. In fact I will not get any other brand stove. It has never failed me once or needed maintenance in the two years that I have used it. And let me tell you, I have used it everywhere in the Cascades of Washington! It performs miraculously, boils fast, loud, but that's OK. Can't be any easier to use, and it cools off fast, which is a real plus for meal in the morning when you want to get going. This thing… Full review

Jetboil Joule Group Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Jetboil Joule is a canister stove system that is intended for use by “expert backpacking groups and alpinists”, particularly for large groups (four or more). Per my tests, the Joule is best suited for groups of 3 to 5 who are primarily heating water for reconstituting freeze-dry meals, pasta and other 1-pot dishes, and for hot drinks. The Joule combines several features that expand the capabilities of the stove. The canister is mounted inverted inside the frame base (liquid fuel flow), which… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this stove! Boils water so fast you won't believe it and uses very little fuel to do so. Compact when packed up and very easy to use. I love this stove, what more need I say? It's very easy to set up and comes with a base to keep it level, and had good support with a pot also. Made my own homemade windscreen by covering paperboard with aluminum foil that worked just fine. Completely adjustable burner and the igniter works great every time. Packs inside the cup and well worth the space it… Full review

MSR SuperFly

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent all round stove. The Superfly is a simple stove that works well for moderate use. Cooking on it is better than the Pocket or Micro Rockets from MSR as the burner is wider than average so it provides a much better simmer. It takes a couple minutes to boil 1.5L of water. The same burner makes it harder to fit well into pots.  Outside of that it is your average canister style stove. Fuel consumption is average, as is its weaknesses to the winds.  Overall not a bad buy. Simple and cooks well. Full review

Jetboil Flash Java Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars A great simple lightweight cooking system. The Jetboils are amazing stoves. All the pieces (stove, stand, fuel canister) fit inside the pot. This makes them compact and considering the pot is included in the system mostly lightweight. I love using this for alpine starts where quick and easy is very much appreciated.  Setting up the stove is easy. Just attach the canister and you are off to the races. It ignites with a built-in piezo ignitor. The large wire dials are easy to adjust with gloves on,… Full review

Coleman PerfectFlow Grill Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Great 'car camping' stove. Offers the versatility of a burner for a pot of joe plus a grill for cooking a burger. I purchased this stove to replace my old Coleman stove that had seen the end of its useful life. I liked the idea with this stove that you have both a burner and a grill/griddle. This unit is typical of all of Coleman's previous stoves, the top is held up by two side wings, which can act as either a small lightweight shelf (I never use it this way) or a windscreen. Setup is easy, open… Full review

Ozark Trail Single Burner Propane Camp Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This burner is so simple to use. You adjust the gas flow and light the burner. No pumping or priming. The plastic base that comes with it makes the base very stable. I would recommend this burner as a starter burner for new campers. It's lightweight, but a little bulky. The Ozark Trail single burner stove is handy to have in camp. It's easy to pack on a boat trip. However a bit overkill for an overnight backpacking trip. I liked the 10,000 BTU burner and the ease of propane. I was also able to reduce… Full review

Campingaz Turbo 270

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Good stove. Cartridge unavailable. Great stove, but the cartridges for it are no longer available in the US and not sure about Europe. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you're still using your WhisperLite for three-season solo or two-person backpacking, you need to upgrade to a good canister stove. The MSR PocketRocket is the gold standard and for good reason. It is lightweight, folds up and fits into a compact plastic case, is simple to use, and puts out all the heat you need for heating water for meals. To get the most out of a canister stove, you need to understand what it's good for and what it's not so good for. If you don't expect it to melt snow for you… Full review
