Recent Liquid Fuel Stove Reviews

Optimus Svea

rated 5 of 5 stars It is a trusted friend who will always be there for you when things get tough. There are times when you need to get something warm into you, and you need it NOW...that is when you will appreciate this stove. Dump some fuel on the top, light it, insert the valve key, put your pot on top, and turn the key when the flames of the priming fuel are almost out...you've got soup! The perfect stove has yet to be made. This one isn't the fastest to boil water; but it will do the job. Simmering is not great,… Full review

MSR XGK-EX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A burn-anything blow torch of a stove! The stove is easy to set up and I like the fact that it burns just about anything, even automotive gas. It's easy to clean and maintain—lighting it requires a match, but I've had great luck with UCO Stormproof matches. No problems getting this stove roaring in 25+ mph winds and frigid cold. There isn't much in the way of flame control—pretty much all or nothing—but if you just need to boil snow, it's a great stove. It does run on the heavy side if you're… Full review

Camp Chef Everest 2-Burner Camp Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Great stove, excellent build quality. Nice even heating. Great car camping stove. I purchased this stove to replace an older Coleman model that I had, and I have to say I am glad I did. This stove is perfect for car camping, in fact I even purchased an extension hose and use it on the side of my Coleman Pop Up camper as an external stove. It works amazing! The burners light instantly, they provide nice even heat, and they are adjustable from a slow simmer all the way up to 'instant charcoal'. This… Full review

Coleman Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It still works! I purchased this stove in 1989 and used it extensively for 10 years in heat, wet, and cold...then I got married and lost it in a box. On a recent camping trip I dug this thing out and blew the dust off of it. It still had fuel in it...about a half tank. I pumped it up, turned it on, and what do you know, the thing still worked like a champ. Used it for four days without a hitch. In one word, this thing is bulletproof. I've been looking at all of these new fancy canister stoves and… Full review

Coleman Sportster Dual Fuel II

rated 5 of 5 stars Very reliable. Low simmer to full power. Easy to use. Powerful. I have used this stove for a few years without problem. I wish it were somewhat smaller and lighter. The flame control is great from simmer to full out high. I have cooked hamburgers, soup, and also done some dehydrated meals. I have used it with a small percolator with no problem. It boils fast. It's fairly stable with pots. I like its simplicity and toughness, but it is heavy. Full review

Primus PrimeTech 1.3L Stove Set

rated 5 of 5 stars Primus's new Primetech 1.3 liter hits the mark by lowering both fuel consumption and burner noise to a whisper in a fairly lightweight, high volume package. I had opportunity to spend three weeks with the Primus New Primetech 1.3L Stove Kit both in the Dolly Sods Wilderness backcountry and in campgrounds. Other than cold lunches on the move, I used the Primus New Primetech 1.3L for breakfast and dinner in dry, windy, cold, and wet weather conditions. First the contents of the kit:  Two 1.3 liter… Full review

Coleman Sportster Dual Fuel II

rated 3.5 of 5 stars What can one say, it's time tested dinosaur technology but so is the SVEA 123 and people still use them. Because they work and work well with little hassle. I picked one of these up at a county dump recycle area. It was covered in pigeon droppings and had a couple small dents on the tank, old fuel smelt like turpentine. I took it home, sprayed it down with Dawn, and then hit it with the garden hose and finally cleaned it with light bleach water, engine cleaner old toothbrush. It was not in as bad… Full review

Primus Tupike Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Anything I can do at home with two burners, I can do on the road. Can't go wrong with this stove. This is a great stove; nothing flimsy about its construction! It's easy to clean and easy to use. Great features that make it easy to make really great food while camping.    Disclosure: The reviewer received a sample of this product from the brand or its representatives for the purpose of this review.

Coleman 550B Multi-Fuel Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Packable, nice wide flame pattern for frying. Simmer that won't quit until the fuel runs out even if you forget to pump it again thus keeping your food warm. Form factor allows better visibility of the flame and use of a narrow platform that might be higher than stoves with seperate fuel bottles and pumps. This is my favorite stove given its versatility and friendliness to the operator and cook. I have had this stove for 30 years, using it annually. Others I have bought and tried don't compare.
