Solid Fuel Stove & Cookset CS585HA

rated 2 of 5 stars Not a very good stove. The design of this stove is its weak point. Esbit fuel works as expected. The pot is well made with a good lid. The stove does not work. The fuel is too low to boil water. I tried wind screens, a DIY sliding door to close the side port, all to no avail.   My overall impression is one of disappointment. The stove is SO close to workable, but it fails to do the one thing it is made for, heating stuff. I was going through my equipment and supplies this afternoon for the upcoming… Full review

Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars This stove rocks. It's reliable and works for me at all temps between 0 degrees and up. Also it works well from below sea level to 11,000 feet and on the snow. This stove rocks. It's reliable and works for me at all temps between 0 degrees and up. Also it works well from below sea level to 11,000 feet and on the snow. You must use a wind screen or wind block of some kind. Will boil 2 cups of water consistently in about 7 minutes + or - depending on conditions on about 1/2 tablet of less. Set up… Full review

Pocket Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight and cheap, the Esbit Pocket Stove fulfills its purpose — to boil water. It is not, however, well suited for all terrain, and the fuel tablets are relatively expensive, meaning the long-term cost of the product will be high. Still, I would recommend it to anyone who just needs to boil water. BACKGROUND I moved to Colorado to start college one year ago. In high school I was able to backpack with a group of buddies, and all of us had different pieces of gear — stoves, tents, water filters… Full review

Alcohol Stove & Trekking Cookset CS985HA

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Packs small and is lightweight. This stove is perfect for one person on a backpacking trek. I use it regularly. I prefer the fuel tablets as they don't go bad, are reliable, and the only thing you need to carry out is the wrapper. Great product. I love Esbit products. This stove is no different. I like how it nests inside itself very easily. I don't have to try it one way and then try it a different way to get it to fit. It's quick and simple. For backpacking, I prefer to use the fuel tabs as they… Full review

Alchohol Burner

rated 5 of 5 stars This super lightweight burner is the perfect companion to the stove and has an amazing blend of great features that make it easy to pack, easy to use, and easy to recommend. **I bought the full stove kit that includes the alcohol burner listed above. So this review is for the entire set, that includes the burner.** I did a lot of research before settling on this stove. I know many, many folks go for the "cat food can" version or "soda can" version. This is a more modern approach/pre-fab version… Full review
