Optimus Crux Weekend HE Cook System

rated 4 of 5 stars Exceptional stove for both the weekender or the serious through-hiker. Great quality at a competitive price. This stove is perfect for those of you wanting to get into backpacking without spending a fortune. That said, this is not a cheaply built product. I find myself taking this everywhere, even on fishing trips just to show off making coffee for those long all-nighters that I like to pull. Setup: Included mesh bag contains the pot and lid, which doubles as a smaller cook pot. Inside of that you… Full review

Optimus Crux Lite

rated 5 of 5 stars Very light, very small, very fast boil time. Has some adjustment to flame. We use this to boil water in a GSI kettle (looks like the Optimus kettle). It is very fast. The stove fits inside the kettle for storage.   We also make espresso with a small stove-top Italian espresso maker. It works great for that as the maker has a small diameter and doesn't work well with our other stove.   We start it with a fire steel—starts one strike, no problem.    Our pots have grooves in the bottom. This… Full review

Primus ClassicTrail

rated 4 of 5 stars A great, cheap, no-frills, somewhat lightweight stove. I went backpacking just this past weekend and found myself in a predicament; the Solo Stove I had planned to use was out of the question as I would be traveling into an area under an open fire ban. And so, I found myself needing to get a cheap, simple to use stove for the weekend.  The Primus Classic Trail fit that bill to a tee. With a 225g canister, both items came in at under $30, and worked perfectly with my Solo Pot 900. The pot wasn't… Full review

Primus Eta Express

rated 5 of 5 stars My favourite portable kitchen, with plenty of small tweaks and convenient functions. Have used it for several years and like every part of it! First of all it's very lightweight. It has several functions integrated into the main parts, such as a few rows of small holes in the lid, turning it into a colander, which allows you to easily get rid of the water without having to carry the extra weight. It also has an integrated lighter onto the stove base. Just click and the gas will ignite from an electric… Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great for boiling water only. I have purchased several JetBoil stoves. Works great to boil water. The igniter doesn't work at all though. Also, never buy the JetBoil pan. It is very expensive and not coated and everything sticks to it. I used it once and it took me several days of soaking and scrubbing to get the eggs off.   Full review

Soto OD-1RX WindMaster

rated 5 of 5 stars Great stove. Can simmer and cook eggs unlike JetBoil (great for boiling water only and the piezo igniter doesn't work after trying two different stoves). I have used this stove over many camping trips. Very reliable, the igniter starts up every time. Can simmer and control the heat very well. I used to use the JetBoil, but the piezo igniter never works and it burns everything. Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great cooking system that burns fuel efficiently and cooks food quickly! It is self-contained and light, making it perfect for any backpacker or hiker. Jetboil. That's a word a lot of backpackers hear, and I'm here to tell you more about it! There's a bit of skepticism around Jetboil, but I would like to help debunk that. I bought this for the start of the summer, and haven't had any problems with it. My justification for its price is the amount of money I save in fuel. It boils water in just over… Full review

Jetboil MightyMo

rated 4 of 5 stars The Jetboil MightyMo is a compact and lightweight cooking stove that allows you to boil water and cook food while out on the trail. This product is best for those who do some hiking, mountaineering, thru-hiking, long trail rides, or any activity where you will need food. Everything fits into the boiling pot and is very easy to set up. The ignition is simple with just the push of a button it will spark into a flame, which is easily controlled with a valve on the side. The JetBoil will allow you to… Full review

Coleman PerfectFlow Grill Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Won't replace your green stove, but does a good job as an extra. We started using this stove/grill last year and really liked it. We have a big kitchen setup we got from Bass Pro that gives us lots of room. This stove did just what we needed, without any problems. Ignition and flame control was on the money. Can't tell you how long it took to boil water because we didn't time it. Great weather in the Northern Calif. forest, so no wind to speak of. We also packed the old green Coleman I've had for… Full review
