Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

Primus Eta Lite

rated 4 of 5 stars A very good affordable stove. I bought this to replace my Eta Solo, which had a larger pot. This stove is very fuel efficient. It carries a small isobutane canister (7+ ounces). When carrying a fuel canister in the pot during a multi-day trip, use a plastic bag to prevent rust/discoloration caused by a wet canister. The stove comes with a piezo igniter, but this can not be relied on. Plan on lighting it with a lighter. Above: Breakfast on a rock. Primus Eta stove, Snow Peak single wall mug, Sea… Full review

BRS 3000W

rated 2 of 5 stars Half the weight and half the price of the FMS 300T. Win-Win, right? Not exactly. I purchased the BRS 3000W (28 grams) in 2016 for roughly $15. It appears to be a clone of the FMS 300T at half the weight and half the cost. Win-Win, right? Not quite. One of the pot legs sagged three days into my 2017 BMT section hike. I was able to bend it back and while not a total failure I certainly don't have confidence in it for long distance backpacking trips. I purchased the FireMaple FMS 300T (49 grams) back… Full review

BRS 3000W

rated 5 of 5 stars A tough, super efficient micro canister stove. I received this at cost from an importer for assessment purposes. It arrived in the letter post not as I was expecting parcel post as the size of this is so very small. It comes in a small box with all Chinese writing and no instructions, inside is a micro black drawstring pouch to protect the stove itself. Closed it is just 33 x 52 mm (half the size of my PocketRocket), open it is 85 mm wide and 69 mm high and being made of stainless steel, brass,… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Manual

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The GigaPower 2.0 Stove is a 3-inch stove that's light durable and easy to use! It gives a big flame for a small stove and works with many types of propane brands. The GigaPower 2.0 stove works great and works well constantly. The stove can easily twist off and on. To light all you have to do is twist the handle and light it with a match or something like that. And it also fits into a 3.5 x 1.5 x 2 inch box. It is well made, so that it can't break or burn itself. I've had it for a few years and… Full review

Jetboil MightyMo

rated 5 of 5 stars The MightyMo is a compact canister stove that will not disappoint! With features like a piezo-style ignition and a simmer control that idles lower than ever, this efficient burner is ideal for many styles of campers and backpackers. Ultra-light hikers and backcountry chefs will both find this little piece of gear part of their everyday carry! SPECS Output: 10,000 BTU Fuel Type: Isobutane Propane Ignition: Built-In Piezo Igniter Dimensions- 4"x6" (folded for storage) Weight- 95g/3.4oz Included Fuel… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars I've used this stove all over, in everything but the most extreme conditions and it has always done exactly what I needed it to. I've had this stove for years and used it everywhere. Cooked for three on the Buffalo River, used it countless times in Big Sur, hot tea at 8000' in the San Gabriels, etc. The biggest test was in Domeland Wilderness in Sieretta Pass, 9600' and blowing up a gale. We were camped on the edge of a meadow and when the sun went down the temperature dropped to 35 degrees before… Full review

Optimus Crux

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this little stove! Just bummed they came out with one 11 grams lighter after I bought mine. Lol! Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The product boils water in a few minutes flat and the compact construction allows the user to store the whole unit within itself, without having to worry about damaging the stove. This stove sets up in seconds and is very easy to use and compact. The fuel is pressurized canisters that you must separately buy specifically from JetBoil for proper fit inside the stove. The ignition is a bit temperamental. It is built into the stove, however does not work consistently every single time. Sometimes it… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars MSR's PocketRocket is a back-country blowtorch. It is great for heating water quickly for dehydrated meals or water purification. It is also fantastically loud, hence the name. I've used the MSR PocketRocket for backpacking and car camping for the better part of two years. It is a fantastic little stove, easy to set up and ignite (no priming or pumping), packs down very small, and heats water rapidly. The PocketRocket is not built for cooking elaborate back-country meals, since the flame control… Full review
