Gearbest KL-S1 Stove

rated 3 of 5 stars Gearbest High Quality Heat-resistant Portable Folding Split Type Camping Stove KL-S1 This is a $13 Chinese remote canister stove that looks like it could be a copy of the Kovea Spider stove. (Actually right after I ordered this, before it arrived, my wife won a Kovea Spider stove as a door prize.) The price included shipping to the U.S. from China, via the Netherlands from a website called gearbest. (Not sure why that particular routing was used, but it took about 3 weeks.) It is a little larger… Full review

Kovea Spider

rated 5 of 5 stars Kovea Spider Stove This is a remote canister stove. My wife won this as a door prize. It is pretty nice. The stove is easy to light.  It does need a windscreen and not too small of a pot.  The first time we used it was with a Snow Peak Trek 900cc titanium cup, without a windscreen, and it took a while more than it should have to boil a couple cups of water. The small pot and the lack of windscreen were my fault. My wife had just won it and we wanted to try it out. It would have been better with… Full review

Rich-Moore 7000 Remote Canister Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Rich-Moore 7000 Remote Canister Stove. This is a vintage remote canister stove. These were made by ALP for Rich-Moore. ALP stands for Allanter Leisure Products Inc. in the UK. It sold for 14.95 in 1974. It’s not a bad stove. It was advanced for the time (so I gave it more points than if it were new) and is not much smaller than similar type modern stoves. The stove is easy to light. There are three legs that rotate to nest together, and then the hose wraps around it, although the pot support doesn’t… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Love it. 1st stove purchase in 18 years. This was my first stove purchase in 18 years and I couldn't be happier. It packs up in this neat little triangular plastic case that fits in those little gaps of wasted space in your pack. No assembly, remove from the case, screw it on the tank, open the three support stands, unfold the gas control valve & fire it up. Boils 2 cups of water in about a minute or so on high (Estimated time). You should be certain to have your pot centered on the support… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Manual

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Purchased this from REI, great little stove. I own three alcohol stoves (Vargo Triad, and two I made) and this packs down fairly small compared to the others. Fuel is a bit bulky, but they last for 3 days (3 meals a day.) Highly recommended to use on a backpacking trip if you want food or heat FAST. Alcohol is a little slower and unreliable in certain conditions. Recommended to purchase the Snow Peak windscreen and titanium cookware as it all fits snugly in the 700 mL pot. For a detailed review… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars We use this stove for canoe picnic breakfasts (paddle to an island and make breakfast), for canoe camping trips, and for short winter hikes when we may want to stop and make a hot drink. It has shown itself to be reliable in the temperature range we have used it in, and certainly works well at its basic purpose for us...boil and heat up water! First used this stove on a late winter breakfast hike...temperature was about 30 degrees, and the stove worked just fine. Obviously, if there is a strong… Full review

Nomad Life Titanium Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This sub 1oz stove puts out some serious heat and packs up small. Only one small problem. Looking for a stove to better fit my GSI Minimalist set, I found this small sub 1oz stove on Amazon. For $22, I figured I could take a chance. I also found some reviews on YouTube under the name BRS 3000T. This stove is also sold under the name Nomad Life for $25. Normally I like to live with something for a while before reviewing, but I wanted to let people know about one minor flaw on this stove.....It may… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to use, lightweight burner stove. I've had a liquid fuel stove for years (MSR SimmerLite), but wanted something more compact and lighter for when I solo backpack or for short overnights with another person. The burner is small and compact. It fits into my cook set, taking up less space in my pack. Easy to light and control the amount of flame form the burner. Connection to fuel canister is easy.  One downside is the wasted fuel canister when the fuel is spent. But you can always scrap the… Full review
