Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

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

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4 of 5 stars I love the weight and speed of this cook system. Every time I go backpacking with friends I end up boiling water for everyone. I can boil a cup of water by the time they are finally set up and ready to start cooking. Setup is a breeze. I love the self igniter which works every time. I wish you had better control on the flame. It tends to scorch if simmered too long. One can of fuel will allow me approximately 10 meals. This system packs up inside itself and is very light weight. I haven't had any… Full review

MSR WindPro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the most stable and easily operated stove I have used. While limited to summer use, it puts out plenty of heat and seems bullet proof. I have used both white gas stoves and canister stoves and this baby is the best. It is a beautiful work of engineering where attention to actual field use was seriously considered.   There are a lot of canister stoves that just screw directly to the top of a gas can. This design causes the cooking platform to be elevated and if the canister is of the smaller… Full review

Olicamp Xcelerator Ultra Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Light as can be, remote stove that so far has been bullet-proof. I really like that I can use this with a wind screen which makes it much more versatile than your typical canister stove. I've had this stove for eight months and have used it on five or six trips, the longest a 5-day hike in SEKI. It's been very easy to use and attaches easily to a canister. It does not have a built-in igniter but works fine with a lighter. The flame is very adjustable and is a big improvement over the Whisperlite… Full review
