Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

Primus ExpressSpider

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good all-around stove for three-season use. This compact white gas stove is the smallest stove that I own. It weighs 10 oz with the pump, which is 4 oz lighter than the MSR WhisperLite (14 oz with pump). It's also a bit smaller and all together perfect for one-person cooking. The pump uses a leather gasket instead of a rubber gasket as in the MSR pumps. Either way, if you maintain them they will last for years. I was drawn to the Primus brand partly because of the metal pump. I got my first WhisperLite… Full review

Ozark Trail Camp Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars No problems for four years now. Would have given 5 stars if easier to take apart for complete cleaning. WOW, first off, had mine for four years now. No problems at all. Noticed some people say you can't buy a new regulator tube. Well read your operating instructions that came with the stove. The part number for the tube is in there. LOL read your paperwork that comes with your equipment, it's a no-brainer. Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Backpacking cooking system/stove. The Jetboil Flash is an incredible cooking system. Brings water to a boil quickly (2 mins). Very easy to use with built-in igniter. Have used on several backpacking trips and always leaves me impressed. Pretty perfect really. Full review

Primus Eta Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Might be one of the most overlooked stoves out there. Singles and couples would do well to research this stove for its ease, portability, weight, and design. I LOVE my Primus ETA Lite. As a backpacker I've used this on three major multi-day trips and several shorter trips. The self contained design (fuel canister and stove all fit in mug with locking lid) makes it easy to throw in the pack. The mug locks on the stove so that you're not worried about stability, but it also includes a stabilizer for… Full review

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
