Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

MSR Reactor

rated 5 of 5 stars Fastest boiling of water and melting of snow you can buy on the market today. Canisters need to be warmer below about 15°F though. Not as fuel efficient as Jetboil, but boils faster. Fastest boiling of water and melting of snow you can buy on the market today. Canisters need to be warmer below about 15°F though. Not as fuel efficient as Jetboil, but boils faster. Super easy setup. No built-in igniter, but with a striker lights easily. Stove is either off or in volcano, rock melting mode. Boils… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 1 of 5 stars This stove is a piece of junk. Regulator went bad after four meals and that left us in a very uncomfortable situation. Please do not purchase this product! Every detail of this stove would get an F in grading it. Full review

Camp Chef Ranger Two-Burner Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent car glamping stove for the chef. I've used this stove for three seasons now and am well pleased with its performance. I bought it so I could cook outside my Scamp travel trailer and now almost exclusively cook outside using this stove.   I found the two burners to provide ample heat for cooking on a griddle or on separate skillets. The burn controls provide burner control for a simmer or a quick boil. However, like all open burner stoves, it is subject to wind. One nice feature… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars I love my Jetboil. Flash Cooking System. I bought it watching how many other outdoors people loved theirs (at Facelift in Yosemite). What sealed the deal was camping with my brother near the Bristlecones. I was able to become familiar with it, before buying it. Since they are a bit pricey, this was a great opportunity. My only "con" is the temperature is either very hot or off. If you know this, and understand what the best use is, you're good to go. The Flash is great for boiling water — quickly. Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight, works perfectly every time! I picked this stove up secondhand, so I'm not sure how many times it had been used before me, but it worked flawlessly for me. Even heat distribution and even when it was windy it boiled my water quick. I will have the PocketRocket for many many years. Full review

MSR WindBurner Stove System

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought this stove for one purpose... to boil water high up in the backcountry in cold temps and driving wind, and this product excels. After years of frustration with my super light backpacking stove, I had enough and started reading reviews online about stoves that would stay lit in windy conditions. The Windburner stood out in the reviews and I pulled the trigger. This thing is amazing.... My number one priority is to boil water quickly in windy conditions in the Sawtooth mountains and the Windburner… Full review

BRS-3000T Ultralight Butane Canister Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for the light at heart, but good for anything camping. I have two of these. I had three, gave one to a friend who is a minimalist packer. He never saw anything like it and was completely happy for the gift. These things are less than $13 shipped on eBay. I found the perfect marriage for this stove. I bought a 1L Boundless Voyage aluminum pot with the built-in heat exchanger ring and the stove platform fits right within the heat exchanger's inner diameter. Not only does it produce more heat… Full review

MSR WindBurner Stove System

rated 4 of 5 stars Good option for windy conditions. This stove is a good option for windy conditions once lit, but as others have said, wind can make it tricky to light. There is no built-in igniter. Also can be hard to see that the burner has been lit, since there's no flame to provide the visual. Easy to set up and use. A bit on the tallish side. All elements of the stove fit inside the pot, including a small canister. Most of my canister stove experience has been with non-integrated Snow Peak or Soto stoves that… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Stove works OK! But the regulator gives a LOT of trouble! We figured we just got a bad one the first time!, but nooooo we got bit twice! because we are stupid that way! Full review
