SimmerLite

rated 3.5 of 5 stars If you are still able to acquire one of these stoves (they are discontinued) I would recommend it. First off, this stove is no longer available (it has been discontinued). However it is still available used, or even NEW, on various sites on the web. If you are looking for a decent first time white gas stove, then I would recommend this stove. It was the first backpacking stove I have bought and still use.  It took me a while to learn how to prime the stove in order to get the liquid vaporized. Full review

This thing… Full review

PanHandler Pot Lifter

rated 5 of 5 stars Just a little item, but one that makes camp stove cooking a bit easier.

We have come to rely on our canister stove for canoe camping...we also have begun to use small pots (in addition to the pot/mug that comes with the stove). We found that pots with large handles tended to get "tippy" on the stove, and were easily knocked off… Full review

MiniWorks EX

rated 5 of 5 stars This filter works great and is very easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a simple backwoods water filter. This filter has two parts. There is a foam filter at the end of the water intake tube. This foam removes large sediment and prevents debris from entering the filter system. It works well, but it's still a good idea to ensure that the water intake is not sitting in muck or surrounded by debris. The second part of this filter is the ceramic element (the part that actually… Full review
