Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars The lightest stove option out there, and it's cheap! At less than a half ounce, this stove is a wonder. If you are wanting to simmer food (actually cook) then this stove is not for you. If all you do is boil water to add to a pack of Mountain House, then look no further. The 0.5 ounce fuel tabs easily boil 2 cups of water with burn time to spare. And since you don't have to worry about conserving fuel, you can light it and forget about it while you set up camp.  We almost always have a fire, so… Full review

Alchohol Burner

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the Chinese version of a Trangia. This is the Chinese knockoff of the Trangia. The only difference I can see is the hole pattern and that the simmer/snuffer lid has a handle where the Trangia does not. I have both and cannot discern any difference in the burn pattern nor efficiency though the Trangia seems to "bloom" a slight bit faster. The caps and lids are interchangeable. I do like the "handle" on the simmer/snuffer lid better than the Trangia though as you don't need pliers or other… Full review

Stove and Pot Stand

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This stove and pot stand work great with my esbit (trangia knockoff) stove. This thing packs up small and could literally put this stand in your back pocket. I admit I haven't tried it with esbit tabs, but I believe it should work as well as my titanium esbit burner. I bought this Esbit tab stove to use with my Esbit alcohol burner. This application works fantastic. It can really crank out some heat. I am very happy with it. My only complaint is that you can't use the simmer ring with… Full review

Pocket Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very doable experience for the backpacker. If you plan to cook a good meal but only go backpacking once or twice a year this may be great option. This stove is very storable, pops out quick, and lights with a single match. It is also quiet in operation and is probably easier to clean than most stoves. Very fast boil in only three minutes, but watch out, you will have to add more fuel cubes during cooking of large meals. This con may make the stove less useful for people planning to cook… Full review

Pocket Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Esbit Pocket stove is overall good quality, as it is very light (12.7 ounces including all of the fuel) and boils water effectively. The setup is extremely easy! Just pop it out of your pocket, unfold it and ignite a piece of fuel. Every single time I've attempted to ignite the fuel, I've done it with a single match. It does not take much effort to light the fuel. It comes with six fuel cubes, so if you're planning to make more than three meals, purchase extra fuel. It works very well as a… Full review
