Primus Express Stove (Piezo)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight, easy, fast, and efficient. Best for boiling water. I've used this stove as the primary stove on several Sierra Club backpacking trips for 5-12 people. It boils water fast and is efficient. On a two-night trip with 12 participants, I boiled 8 liters of water each morning and 12 liters of water each evening for a total of 40 liters of water using about 2-1/2 8-oz MSR Isobutane cartridges. I dinged it half a star because valve is hard to locate with a pot on the stove. Setup: is… Full review

MSR WindBurner

rated 5 of 5 stars This thing is great! Fast boiling, efficient, packs well. Setup: Quick, like less than a minute quick. The lid could fit a little better. It is really tight and feels like it could easily come off, but I frequently stuff it in a pack and it always stays put. I also use it to help pour boiling water and it has never come off. Ignition: Leaves much to be desired. I have resorted to leaving a miniature BIC lighter inside so I am always guaranteed to have an ignition source with it. Flame Control: Decent,… Full review

Jetboil MicroMo Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This product is great for anyone who camps. I travel to Canada and BWCA to fish and wouldn't use any other system. Very lightweight and self contains itself. Will boil water in less than a minute. Very easy to set up stove. Screw in the gas canister and you are ready to go. The igniter works well as long as it stays dry. The adjustments for the flame could be a little better. Adjustments are too sensitive. I fry fish with the Jetboil and Jetboil skillet—less than 5 minutes I'm eating fresh walleye. Full review

Primus Micron Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent stove for those who insist on canister stoves for fast food use on the trail (i.e., boil water). I bought this stove more to use at work (quick hot lunches instead of sandwiches or microwaved dishes) instead of using it in the field. Due to management concerns of safety, I had to use a canister stove rather than any liquid fuel stove, and the Micron seemed to fit the bill perfectly. This stove performed quite well in its intended role, burning very hot and boiling water very… Full review

Jetboil MicroMo Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Like the size and weight. Handle melted on the first use. Everything packs away into one. On my first use the handle melted on it. Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I would recommend the JetBoil Flash cooking system to anyone who wants a lightweight compact cook system. This cook system is very easy to set up and I like how it has a built-in igniter and it seems to always work on the first or second push. The flame control is amazing. You can have it set to a roaring boil or a smooth simmer with relative easy. It is not the best for cold weather or winter camping. The fuel is not made for the cold weather and will not always work. It can also use multiple brands… Full review

MSR Reactor

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Fast Fast Fast—did I say Fast? I have had a man crush on this stove for many years. I have been waiting for the price to go down so I could get it. Well, I got tired of waiting and I picked one up for $159. It did not disappoint. In any temperature or wind condition it boils fast. I would recommend this for freezer bag cooking or just re-hydrating you food in a cup. I have not tried cooking anything directly in the pot, but I think it would probably stick. I like the size of the pot (I have the… Full review

Jetboil MicroMo Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The MicroMo is the latest in Jetboil’s impressive line-up of personal cooking systems for backcountry use. Conceptually, the MicroMo attempts to provide a compact, low weight solution, without compromising either quality, features, or performance, which includes the much lauded ability to simmer; in my opinion, it succeeds. The MicroMo is the latest in Jetboil’s impressive line-up of personal cooking systems for backcountry use. Conceptually, the MicroMo attempts to provide a compact, low weight… Full review

Olicamp Vector Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars The best stove I ever owned. Light and small. The best stove I have ever owned. Quick setup and heats quick. The stove takes up no room in your pack and it fits in just about any cook pot. I use a stainless steel Stanly cook pot. I bought a dry sack and found it takes up less space in my pack than my son's Jetboil. At 10,000 btu "I think" it heat and boils fast to get you feed and on the go again. The wire control handle allows for easy to use heat control. I use less fuel with this stove than… Full review
