Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)

rated 1.5 of 5 stars One trick pony The annoying thing about Jetboil is the igniters. They last about a week of use before eroding away, totally unacceptable when you consider what these devices are used for and where they go. Why jet boil allow such inferior igniters to be used in their product mystifies  me. I would not use one again and in fact sold all of my jet boil  gear. Another reason not to use them is that the pots  are useless on anything other than the jetboil stove. i.e they are no good on a hot plate… Full review

MSR WindBoiler

rated 4 of 5 stars 100km p hour winds — no problems. Back from a 2-day backpacking trip with this new stove. I took an almost exhausted gas cylinder (20% left). I did 4 boils of 240ml of water and the gas is still not exhausted. Boil time was 2 minutes in up to 100 km per hour winds. The first time I started it the flame blew out before I loaded the pot / heat exchanger assembly on the stove.  After this experience I learned how to keep the lighted match on the stove (waterproof matches are also WIND proof!) until… Full review

Coleman Xtreme Powermax Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great stove, and great companion to my 2-burner model. I haven't used it for awhile because I, um, don't have it anymore. Looking for replacement. I've read that fuel is no longer available. True? I haven't used my single or two burner for a few years, but have lots of fuel saved up. My single burner model lost a leg (broke), and when I took it to a buddy to have him tack it back together with an aluminum welder, one of his guys accidentally threw the whole thing out. I'm hoping to find a replacement,… Full review

MSR WindBoiler

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The MSR Windboiler is a one-trick pony — it boils water efficiently even in high winds — and it does that one trick extremely well. But lighting the stove in those same winds is not so easy, and the plastic canister stand is rather fragile. Test Conditions I received this stove in late October as a Review Corps assignment. As I live in Norway, I have mostly used the stove in relatively cold conditions, including cool (10˚C/50˚F), windless conditions in my back yard, in a moderate breeze while… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Auto

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this little thing. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I love this stove. It packs a punch for its micro size. The stove simmers extremely well and boils up water quickly. Ignition is a one click and you're lit with the piezo igniter. Overall, I am extremely happy I bought this little baby. Full review

Snow Peak LiteMax Titanium

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used this stove and would recommend it to all backpackers. I have used this in the cold and warm temperatures. It works great for boiling water and cooking spam as well as heating gravy. It worked well (the spam was burnt a bit). It can attach to MSR canisters and I assume to most on the market. Full review

Kovea Spider

rated 5 of 5 stars A lightweight, packable, and dependable stove suitable for four-season use. If they play their cards right I think the South Korean-based Kovea will be rivaling the top stove manufacturers on the market today. (Video review below). As it currently stands, this stove is not available via the regular 'players' but both Amazon and CampSaver.com have stepped up to offer this dynamite, very well-priced, remote canister stove. Another site, Fatcatgear.com offers the Spider and has an aftermarket windscreen… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Never failed me, reliable, boils fast, small and convenient. I can always rely on MSR products. In fact I will not get any other brand stove. It has never failed me once or needed maintenance in the two years that I have used it. And let me tell you, I have used it everywhere in the Cascades of Washington! It performs miraculously, boils fast, loud, but that's OK. Can't be any easier to use, and it cools off fast, which is a real plus for meal in the morning when you want to get going. This thing… Full review

Jetboil Joule Group Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Jetboil Joule is a canister stove system that is intended for use by “expert backpacking groups and alpinists”, particularly for large groups (four or more). Per my tests, the Joule is best suited for groups of 3 to 5 who are primarily heating water for reconstituting freeze-dry meals, pasta and other 1-pot dishes, and for hot drinks. The Joule combines several features that expand the capabilities of the stove. The canister is mounted inverted inside the frame base (liquid fuel flow), which… Full review
