MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars I've used this stove all over, in everything but the most extreme conditions and it has always done exactly what I needed it to. I've had this stove for years and used it everywhere. Cooked for three on the Buffalo River, used it countless times in Big Sur, hot tea at 8000' in the San Gabriels, etc. The biggest test was in Domeland Wilderness in Sieretta Pass, 9600' and blowing up a gale. We were camped on the edge of a meadow and when the sun went down the temperature dropped to 35 degrees before… Full review

Optimus Crux

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this little stove! Just bummed they came out with one 11 grams lighter after I bought mine. Lol! Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The product boils water in a few minutes flat and the compact construction allows the user to store the whole unit within itself, without having to worry about damaging the stove. This stove sets up in seconds and is very easy to use and compact. The fuel is pressurized canisters that you must separately buy specifically from JetBoil for proper fit inside the stove. The ignition is a bit temperamental. It is built into the stove, however does not work consistently every single time. Sometimes it… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars MSR's PocketRocket is a back-country blowtorch. It is great for heating water quickly for dehydrated meals or water purification. It is also fantastically loud, hence the name. I've used the MSR PocketRocket for backpacking and car camping for the better part of two years. It is a fantastic little stove, easy to set up and ignite (no priming or pumping), packs down very small, and heats water rapidly. The PocketRocket is not built for cooking elaborate back-country meals, since the flame control… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredibly light and versatile, and is ideal for most situations. Perfect at high altitudes, and just as good at normal heights. Ease of use: Getting the stove going is very simple and easy to do through gloves however if it is really cold it will take some time to catch and light. Features: The fact that the gas is pressurised makes it brilliant in the hills.  Construction and durability: Very strong and very well made with a lovely finish to it with lasts over its age.  Conditions: Had it… Full review

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
