Recent Compressed Fuel Canister Stove Reviews

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars When I first received the PocketRocket I was a little disappointed it didn't have a piezo ignition. After having used it in countless hikes against other stoves, I have nothing to complain about. I almost always heat, eat, and finish my meal before anyone else's water is even boiling. Setup: Fast. Just flick out the three prongs and screw it on.  Ignition: If using a portable piezo, always lights in just a couple of clicks, or if you get to know your own stove, lights on the first click. I bought… Full review

Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Jetboil fans rejoice! Satisfying simmer control plus a new pot size/shape make this complete/modular canister stove worthy of adding to or upgrading your kit. The versatility of accessories such as the pot support also elevate it to a fully stand-alone stove for most applications. Given its size (1 L), base weight (14.6 oz) and weight-saving options, it can serve a solo backpacker or small group alike. The ease and speed at which such an all-inclusive unit boils water has made it my preferred stove… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this stove! Super fast and packs well. Easy setup and built-in, one-strike ignition. This is a really solid stove and easy to use. I was amazed at how fast it boils water, usually around 100 seconds at low altitude.   I purchased the french coffee press to go with it and now I can have my favorite coffee on the trail just like I would at home. This system comes with basically everything you need for simple heating (i.e., water for dehydrated foods or hot drinks). If you are going to do any… Full review

Olicamp Ion Micro Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely light, extremely small. The lightest canister stove so far. Great for ultralight backpacking using a Ti mug. Lets you simmer vs. an alcohol stove! I tried a couple of different alcohol stoves and wasn't impressed by their ease-of-use and fuel consumption but they were lighter than existing canister stoves. I stumbled across the Olicamp Ion Micro Ti stove on the interweb and for about $45, I gave a shot.  Weighing in at 49g with case (45+4), the Ion Micro is the smallest and lightest canister… Full review

Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars JetBoil makes hot water happen fast, in a medium weight package. Mine has been flawless. It goes in my hunting pack when I need hot food quickly and quietly, in fire ban areas, as well as at altitude. Mine heats water for hot drinks, Mountain House, and Campbell's condensed soup. This stove is extremely convenient when you are reheating or cooking instant types of food.  I've used it at 9K feet in the autumn, and been very happy.  A 110gram fuel can lasts forever. The only thing I would change… Full review

Soto Micro Regulator Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for cooking fish or boiling water. The Soto OD-1R Micro Regulator stove is a versatile canister stove with the ability to evenly cook fish, boil water, and everything in between. It's perfect for backpackers who like to cook or prepare their meal while out on the trail. A few months ago I was on the hunt for a new canister stove. There are a lot of options that fall within a pretty wide price range, so to help narrow my options I looked at stoves that were highly packable and able to cook… Full review

Primus Eta Spider

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very well made, stable, dependable, rugged, super-quiet and efficient stove. Delivered from Primus to work with canister (LP) gas, but will also burn white gas, kerosene, paraffin, and unleaded fuel with an optional multi-fuel kit. Not sure, but I would not be surprised if it would also burn Jet-A fuel. bare bones setup without the windscreenstove sitting inside of the windscreen. hard to see but each foot is secured by a magnet in the base of the windscreen. notice all the tiny holes in the "collander"… Full review

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 Jetboil allows such inferior igniters to be used in their product mystifies me. I would not use one again and in fact sold all of my Jetboil  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 or… 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
