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!

It does not take much effort to light the fuel.┬áIt 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

Pocket Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Very durable Great deal Extremely versatile fuel source This is great stove that is compact, light, extremely versatile, and is reasonably priced. I liked that it was made in Germany because they make great products, but that's beside the point. It's a great stove that I highly reccomend to all. Full review

Pocket Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Tiny, lightweight stove. Easy to use, easy to pack. Best for boiling water for freeze-dried meals and for other liquid drinks and meals. If you are wanting a heavy-duty stove for a group or for cooking things that take a long time or have to simmer, this is not the stove you are looking for. I took this little stove out for the first time last weekend and it was great. After reading other reviews and having the common sense to look at this stove and not expect to cook gourmet meals with it, I was… Full review
