Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

MSR MicroRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely compact and easy to pack into other gear, the MicroRocket exceeded my expectations. It had water boiling in less than 2 minutes and easily supported my fairly large GSI Dualist pot. Used my MicroRocket for the first time on an overnight in Killarney Provincial Park early this week. It is very easy to set up, lit quickly with the supplied starter, and had over 500ml of water boiling in just over a minute. It was quite windy and gusty and we were on an exposed outcrop of rock. Even though… Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Extreme portability and fast burn rate. If all you're after is a very portable high quality stove to produce a warm nourishing hot drink in under three minutes, then the Zip is a must-have purchase. I have tried cooking on my stove, and though it's not as versatile as more cooking designed stoves, it will still produce a good meal in an acceptable time rate. Remember your last walk or trip in freezing temperatures, and your core temperature was crying out for a hot drink or packet soup, to revive… Full review

Camp Chef Stryker 100 Isobutane Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a lower cost alternative to the JetBoil stove. It has the same setup, good efficiency, and saves you enough money to buy a bunch of fuel canisters. I kept on bouncing back and forth between buying a JetBoil or an MSR Windburner. I had finally decided to pick up the MSR when this stove showed up in a Google search. I spent some time researching it and couldn't find any negative comments. Mostly positive, and about $40 cheaper, so I figured I'd roll the dice. I'm glad I did. I'm sure I would… Full review

MSR MicroRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, compact, and super efficient. Used for three weeks solid of the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as multiple times in the Scottish Highlands and it worked a dream, boiling water quickly for breakfasts and dinner (freeze dried). Comes with a lighter that works very well and is not flimsy. If you want something that boils water fast and is super lightweight and compact then look no further because this is what you need! It's very simple to use and set up with three prongs that need to be folded… Full review

Ozark Trail Camp Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Unserviceable, stopped working after third use. I thought I got a good deal since it is so cheap, but after third camping trip it started acting strange. First the burner will not light up from the piezo igniter, then it fire gets weaker and weaker then it went dead. I tried changing fuel canister, cleaning the regulator, checking the burner and fuel line, but the same problem. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars The MSR PocketRocket is a staple in my backpack for all my trail hikes and overnights. MSR engineers have done their homework on this little marvel making it super lightweight and compact while delivering high power to cook your meals on the trail. Be sure to add this gem to your list of 'mission critical' equipment. Setup: The MSR PocketRocket sets up in under a minute ready to get to the task of cooking your next meal. Ignition: The Piezo lighter that comes with the purchase is marginally effective… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars This is all the stove I need out in the backcountry. I bought this little stove couple years ago at REI after one of the sales people explained every stove on the shelf. I decided that this one was all I really needed as a solo hiker out in the wilderness. It has not let me down! Works like a charm. It is durable and lightweight and packs away in a nice small little plastic case. It fits into my GSI Soloist kitchen set as well. I don't need anything else.  Full review

Alpkit BruKit

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, self contained cooking system. Gas contained within cook pot. Best to boil water rapidly. Recommended, although not for ultra lightweight backpackers. Worked exactly as promised on website. Up to 230 gram gas will fit within brupot. Has held up well, although only been used for seven days so far. Seems to be good on gas consumption. Is a fair copy of the Jetboil at half the price. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product, great price. The MSR PocketRocket is a great little stove. It is lightweight and compact. Boils water quickly as well. The only drawback that I have found is that there is no igniter built into it. It is however very easily lit with a lighter or match (that you are probably carrying anyhow). Fuel is readily available and pretty easy to find. This is a great little stove, with a very nice price to go with it. Full review
