Recent Liquid Fuel Stove Reviews

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 finale cleaning with light bleach water, engine cleaner old toothbrush. It was not as bad condition… 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. Thanks for the opportunity to review... 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.  Full 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.

Coleman Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great stove for cooking and compact. Yes, this may be a little heavy for modern backpacking techies. However, the performance and reliability is terrific. Purchased the stove at a pawn shop because I wanted a backup stove for VW camper. Even in the dark and unfamiliar setup, I found a perfect match for conservation of space. Two-burner Coleman stoves take up too much space/bulk. I used the stove on the river camping w/ temperature and windy conditions. Great coffee, breakfast, water boils quickly… Full review

Coleman Sportster Dual Fuel II

rated 4 of 5 stars A rugged, simple to use, high BTU cooking blowtorch. I got it for winter outings: cooking in the ski area parking lot, snow camping with the aid of gear sleds/pulks. For these purposes, it's great. Melts snow and boils water in a flash.  Liquid fuel stoves have a learning curve. If not pressurized, primed, or lit correctly the fuel can pool and run out of the burner and create a fireball. Practice outside a few times to get used to its quirks. The flame burns a large, yellow, and sooty until the… Full review

Primus Onja

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great stove for car camping with an innovative design that helps to get the cooking surface elevated off the ground. Powerful burners that can be controlled to get a simmer if necessary. Would definitely recommend for small group car camping and picnics where portability is necessary. The setup for the stove is pretty easy since you just turn it over and attach the fuel canisters to the bottom. The advantage this provides is that you don't need to carry the fuel separately and it is already attached… Full review

Coleman Peak 1 Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Please never leave me. I was reading some reviews.  I just started my 1982? version in prep for 2017; lit up first try. I've never done a THING to it except add some oil. Used in in all types of conditions, run hard and put away wet. Once started, I pump (if you need a fast boil) a little more. I always release the pressure after it cools, starts better next time. I see there's still some on eBay. With maintenance kits still on eBay as well I'd say buy it! If that's what you are looking for. I… Full review

Primus Onja

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Overall, solid piece of gear. Great solution for those looking for home stove top-quality stoves to take outdoors without the price tag, weight, or footprint issues of conventional camping stoves. As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products from time to time to review.  A versatile, well made and compact designed product that has allowed me to expand my cooking options on so many activities. Before I was limited to carrying the backpacker, single-serving, water-boiling stoves for day hikes and road… Full review

MSR PocketRocket 2

rated 5 of 5 stars A good redesign of a classic. For those who like the ease, speed, and the versatility of a compressed fuel canister stove to boil and simmer, the MSR PocketRocket 2 is a great choice. It’s very easy to use and very reliable. It’s more compact and sturdier than its predecessors, and fairly lightweight, especially without the case. Any cons associated with a PocketRocket2 involve gas canisters and not the stove. If you use a canister, I recommend this stove. The MSR PocketRocket 2 (PR2) is the… Full review
