BRS 3000T

rated 5 of 5 stars The must-have stove for the ultralight enthusiast. For under £8 there really is no excuse for not buying one! Bought one of these several years ago (don't remember exactly when) and whenever I fly abroad it comes with me. I keep it packed in its bright green carry bag when not in use and store it inside my titanium cooking pot set, along with an MSR spark ignitor, a titanium spork, and a folding tripod to spread the footprint of the gas canister.  A few years back I went on a two-week driving… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Stove, Titanium, Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars Great three-season backpacking stove with exceptional simmer control. New model is called GigaPower2, essentially the same stove. It's very well made, reliable, and lightweight. Setup: Easy to unfold legs and screw onto fuel canister.  Ignition: Auto-ignitor is reliable and easy to spark. Flame Control: Great simmer control. Cooking: Not as fast to boil as in integrated stove, about 3-4 minutes for 3/4 liter. Wind Resistance: I highly recommend the matching windscreen. It's like a small dish with… Full review

Primus Micron Ti 2.5

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using this stove for around...maybe 10 years? Never have any issue, and I saw another review for hard-to-fold issue, that is because of Titanium's characters, the good abrasion with other metal and non-stick to the food. It's totally expected and, in a way, I appreciate Titanium is solid when putting a pot on it, and not to have a boiling water pot moving around on top of the stove. Once you understand the pros, you will realize they're not cons. This is a great product I have been using… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Had to call Customer Service and get replacement gas regulator within days of purchasing this stove. Then it worked for a year (stored and unused). We didn't go out camping throughout this time, and didn't use the stove. Tried it after a year, the stove works for a few minutes, then the flame sort of dies down. We adjust it to compensate, a few minutes later the flame starts sputtering, and then like a huge flame thrower it will put out the flame in a flower pattern. Tried cleaning up as much as… Full review

Optimus Crux Lite

rated 5 of 5 stars Small, not expensive, with plenty of heat. I chose the Optimus because the platform for holding a pot is larger than other brands, making it less top heavy. Everything about this stove ranks near the top. It is small, not expensive, easy to use, is not top heavy, and the flame control works well for a canister stove. In the wind there is some benefit to setting it up behind a wind break or making a windscreen. It is very light and dependable. I have used it on my boat during winter fishing trips. Full review

Optimus Crux

rated 3 of 5 stars I brilliant idea that has its drawbacks. Suited for summer conditions in sheltered areas. This seems like a stroke of genius—make use of the dead space at the bottom of the canister to stow the stove. In principle it is but manufacturing something this compact comes at a price. The designers at Optimus were clever to spot the dead space at the bottom of a gas canister and consider if a stove could be made to fit in it. In this respect it is a brilliant idea. It certainly fits in larger canisters,… Full review

MSR PocketRocket 2 Mini Stove Kit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This small stove kit, designed for minimalist solo backpacking includes the new MSR PocketRocket 2 stove, a pot grabber, a plastic cup/bowl, a cup lid, and an aluminum pot (.75L capacity). A small 4 oz. fuel canister (not included) will fit within component system. The entire system (not including fuel) weighs only 10 oz. Its small size, versatility, and efficient stove action make this an ideal stove kit for camping or backpacking. This stove kit arrived in a solid cardboard box, protecting the… Full review

Kovea Spider

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid performer. I have been using this stove for a few months. I have run about five 200-gram MSR canisters through it. I paid 42, free shipping and no tax. It took 12 days for Amazon to get it from Korea to Tennessee. Happy about all that.  It is a solid stove. Well made. Easy to operate, even in sub-freezing temps. I have used it on a few mornings below 20° F and no issues. Warm the canister a little in the bag or jacket and after it is fired up, it takes 10 seconds to heat the pre-heater tube… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars For the money, we haven't found a better option. It has held up well despite some probably unnecessary abuse. We like it better with an adapter and a 20-pound propane tank. This stove has worked out great for us. We did some shopping around, and it wasn’t the coolest looking, most luxurious, or probably even the highest quality materials. But the price was much better than the other two-burner options we looked at.   We’ve used it nearly daily, two or three meals a day, for a couple of months… Full review
